The paths refer to paths in the container, not to paths directly on your server that is running the docker container.

EAS partitions

The EAS supports several so-called partitions. These are described in the Database and specified by the following properties:

Selection of the target partition

Decisive for selecting the target partition for a file above-mentioned Filter. If more than one partition remains after filtering, One is randomly selected.

If too little space is available on the underlying file system The partition is automatically deactivated. The border is defined by EAS_PARTITION_MIN_FREE. Should all Valid partitions must be disabled (disabled = true in the Database, see below), these have to be created after space Manually.

File System Layout

Standard partitions are located in /var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/assets. Become New partitions are created in the database Workers created automatically, provided the permissions in the Hierarchy are sufficient.

For delivering via Apache, the partitions are also created with Their ID in /var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/partitions, in one Standard installation looks like this:

/var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/partitions/1 -> /var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/assets/orig
/var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/partitions/2 -> /var/opt/easydb/lib/eas/assets/dest

The symbolic links are also managed by the EAS-Worker Required.

Create new partitions

At the moment, there is no tool for creating new partitions But can add more partitions to the table at database level Eas.partition.

This table has the following columns:

column description
partition ID (managed by PostgreSQL)
partition_name unique name of the partition
path unique path to data storage
priority Priority of the partition (default0, the higher, the less important)
store_original for ‘originals’ (uploaded files)
store_derived for ‘derived originals’ (e.g., rotated images)
store_version for ‘versions’ (e.g., various sizes)
all_versions all versions (differentiation by version names) may be stored (default:true). If false, the link tableeas.partition__version is used.
all_classes all types (image, office, etc.) may be stored (defaulttrue). If false, the link tableeas.partition__fileclass is used.
all_instances Assets of all instances may be placed (default:true). If false, the link tableeas.partition__instance is used.
disabled defaultfalse. If true, the partition is not used. This flag is also set automatically if the free space on the partition becomes too small.
space_used Space consumed in bytes (is automatically filled)
space_free free space in bytes (is automatically filled)
auto_disabled_time Time of automatic deactivation (is automatically filled, as from EAS 4.2.18)

Reactivate automatically disabled partitions

Without sufficient free storage space, “EAS partitions” get disabled as a saftey measure.

Once space has been created on the underlying file system, the disabled EAS partitions have to be enabled manually. To do this, connect with the PostgreSQL command-line client psql to the eas database.

From outside the container, the call would be:

docker exec -ti easydb-pgsql psql -U postgres eas

Then execute the following SQL statement, assuming that all partitions are affected:

UPDATE eas.partition SET disabled = false;

If you are using the default installation, then the two originally created partitions are on the same file system and are thus deactivated at the same time.

But if your layout is different and only one partition is affected (example: a partition named “dest”):

UPDATE eas.partition SET disabled = false WHERE partition_name = 'dest';

To check which partitions are affected:

SELECT partition_name,path,disabled FROM eas.partition;

At the end just close the connection with:


A reload or restart is not needed.
