Temporary file system service

This service is responsible for managing temporary files. TMP files are created:

  • When uploading files, chunks are stored in the TMP folder before merging and moving to the final storage destination
  • When creating and extracting archives (zip files)
  • When downloading multiple files, they are copied into TMP folder before zipping
  • To count and lock excessive login attempts

Tmp files are usually removed immediately after the use. For expired files, configurable garbage collection is used:

        'Filegator\Services\Tmpfs\TmpfsInterface' => [
            'handler' => '\Filegator\Services\Tmpfs\Adapters\Tmpfs',
            'config' => [
                'path' => __DIR__.'/private/tmp/',
                'gc_probability_perc' => 10,
                'gc_older_than' => 60 * 60 * 24 * 2, // 2 days

Note: if you want to use this script as a stateless app or in any kind of multi-node environment, you must mount a single shared TMP folder for all the instances. You can solve this problem with Amazon Elastic File System or similar approach.
