troubleshooting Question

I am making a PHP script that sends a file to another server to process, the process takes 5-8 secs. Should I use CURL to upload and wait for reply, or use AJAX call to check every second for update?

Hi,

I am making a PHP script that sends a file to another server to process, the process of the file takes 5 to 8 seconds. Should I use CURL to upload and wait for reply, or upload it and use AJAX call to check every second for an update?

I am not sure which approach is better for the servers performances, we send a lot of files every second. I am afraid at some point it gets congested.

Any ideas/tips?

Thank you.
