KivorImport Operation

To perform an export from a Kivor

  • Map destination (NAS) drive to local drive letter
  • Ensure Kivor is connected to network
  • Open command prompt
  • Change to KivorExport directory
  • Execute command KivorExport <kivorip> <dest>
    • <kivorip> is the IP address of the Kivor
    • <dest> is the destination of the output files
    • On completion will display some statistics and return to the prompt
    • See example below
  • To force stop, press Ctrl-Break
  • If execution stops or is stopped before completion, it can be restarted in the same manner. Files which have already been transferred are NOT transferred again - transfer starts up at point it left off.
  • NOTE - this can take several days to run to completion

Progress monitoring

Progress can be monitored on-screen or by observing the output log files. Operation is as follows:

  • Startup Kivor if not already running
  • Perform checks for specified Kivor and output folder
  • Read list of files from Kivor using Xiva
  • Stop Kivor
  • Connect using FTP and for every file
    • Transfer file to local PC
    • Transcode to FLAC
    • Copy across to final destination

Log Files

2 log files are created by the utility, and stored in the folder from which the utility was started

  • KivorExport.txt - this stores ALL the information which is displayed on the screen
  • KivorExportFAILS.txt - this stores a list of all the files which failed to transfer correctly

Performance Hints

This utility makes intermittent heavy use of network, and the transcoding operation is a heavy processor load, hence some performance related issues are worth considering

  • Use wired ethernet connections between ALL devices (Kivor, NAS and PC running utility)
  • Use fastest PC available for running utility

Good transfer rates are around 4->500 discs per day
