s3 PUT notification

Hi experts,

We have been using Amazon's s3 service for imports and exports.

Currently, we simply use the s3.exe for putting / getting files to and from s3.

s3 auth <key> <secret>
s3 put <bucket>/<folder>/ C:\Batch\<folder>

We have been having some issues with files not making it s3 which causes issues downstream.

The question we have is:
How can we receive notification that the file was successfully received in s3?

Either via the cmd line script or via an amazon service. We have been looking at the SNS service from Amazon, but are not sure if this can be used for this purpose.

Thanks for your help!

Without  modifying the code what you could do is

s3 put filename
cd temp
s3 get filename

Personally I use the Cloudberry S3 Explorer with the sync option

Thanks ve3ofa, we have considered that solution.

We are keen to know if there is a way to receive notification that the file was successfully received in s3 either by:
- Amazon notification
- A "file exists" s3 command line function

Thanks for any further feedback experts!

Using the Amazon's AWS SDK for PHP, the (reduced) code I use is ...

	if (!$o_S3->if_bucket_exists($a_S3BucketParts['host']))
		{
		$o_CLIP->displayError("<destination> {$a_S3BucketParts['host']} does not exist.");
		}

	$a_S3Options = array
		(
		'acl'        => AmazonS3::ACL_PUBLIC,
		'fileUpload' => $o_CommandLine->args['source'],
		'storage'    => AmazonS3::STORAGE_STANDARD
		);

	$o_Response = $o_S3->create_object($a_S3BucketParts['host'], trim($a_S3BucketParts['path'], '/'), $a_S3Options);
	if (!$o_Response->isOK())
		{
		$o_CLIP->displayError("Unable to upload {$o_CommandLine->args['source']} to {$o_CommandLine->args['destination']} with the error of {$o_Response}");
		}

Open in new window


So, when uploading a file using the SDK, you can also examine the response to determine if the upload was successful.

Now, based upon the last 4 or 5 months of use, with maybe half a million uploads, I've probably had 3 or 4 failures. Retrying the put worked. So I've not needed to spend any time handling the potential failures beyond recording things.
