There is a problem with storing too many files in a single directory as the directory itself gets fragmented and performance starts to suffer. There are indications that this starts at lower counts but i start to see it when directories have more than about 1000 files. If you were to store one file every hour this would start somewhere around 40 days in.

a second problem with your method is is that "duplicate" files are stored. There realy is no need to save the newest file if it is the same as the last one.

To solve the first problem i create a folder tree to store the files in. such as /users/NAME/documents/FOLDER/y2017/m06 or /users/NAME/documents/FOLDER/y2017/m06/d18 (i have a program that may store a new file every 3 min, this can mean 480 files a day)

To solve the second problem i tend to compare the last and newest files and not put the new file into the history tree if they are the same. In your case the files inside the zip get a new datetime every pull, so you have to extract the relivant 'doc.kml' files and compare those.

The following program should do both of these tasks

use strict; use warnings; use Getopt::Long qw/GetOptions/; use LWP; use File::Basename qw/dirname basename/; use File::Copy qw/copy/; my $url =' +gVdStSJBF5C7mpS6MXrkces'; #my $topdir ='/users/NAME/documents/FOLDER'; my $dir ='D:/goodies/pdhuck/down1/perl/monks/kmlbackup'; + my $ftype ='zip'; my $debug =0; my %optdef=("debug=i" => \$debug ,"url=s" => \$url ,"dir=i" => \$dir ); GetOptions ( %optdef ) or die("Error in command line arguments\n"); die $dir.' must exist' unless (-d $dir); my $lastdir=$dir.'/last'; # unless (-d $lastdir && -w $lastdir) unless (-d $lastdir) { mustdir ($lastdir); } my $now=time; my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) =gmtime($no +w) ; my $nicefmt='/y%04u/m%02u/d%02u-%02u-%02u-%02u-Z'; # last dir is mo +nth # my $nicefmt='/y%04u/m%02u/d%02u/%02u-%02u-%02u-Z'; # last dir is d +ay my $nice=sprintf($nicefmt,$year+1900,$mon+1,$mday,$hour,$min,$sec); my $lastfn=$lastdir.'/lastbackup.'.$ftype; my $nextfn=$lastdir.'/nextbackup.'.$ftype; my $ua=LWP::UserAgent->new(agent =>"libwww-perl-kmzbackup"); my $req = new HTTP::Request (GET => $url); my $request = $ua->request ($req); unless ($request->is_success) { die 'get failed for '.$url.'

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
