Customer reported an issue when uploading a pdf file. The transformation of the pdf generates a temporary file that grows endlessly (several GB in a few seconds). Only by stopping Alfresco the transformation stops.
The file has been submitted by the customer under a NDA and only for investigation and testing purposes. Please don't make this file public anywhere. It's a 100Mb Pdf file that can be downloaded here:
Steps to reproduce:
- Bootstrap a Vanilla version of Alfresco 5.1.2
- Upload the file to any folder
- Identify the folder in <tomcat_dir>/temp/Alfresco/<year>.... where the document is being transformed into a txt file.
Temporary file is created with the transformation of the pdf and size is just a few MB.
Transformation enters into a loop and the file grows in a few seconds to GB.
