Realsource and Gamls frequent mass photo updates

asked 2020-06-11 15:27:51 -0500

A VERY large number of Realsource and Gamls listings are getting their Photo Modification Timestamps (L_Last_Photo_updt) updated every morning. For Realsource, it appears to be between 3am and 7:30am PST weekdays, and for Gamls, sometime right around 6:30am PST weekdays.

Is there an automated process running in the early morning hours for at least these two feeds that is inadvertently updating the photo timestamps even when there has been no change to the photos?

We are seeing the same thing here. Any information would be appreciated.

Sorry for the delay. Hopefully I can review this one tomorrow.

Not really seeing anything out of the ordinary with GAMLS so far.
They normally do a lot of listing and image updates.
I do see where it has hit a little over 2000 listings with image changes.
But seems to average lower.

Are you still having issues with this?
Realsource seems to have settled down now too.
There was an issue with one of the Realsource feeds sending us a lot of image updates.
But this should be fixed now.

Hey! We are still seeing a longer than normal time response time processing photos for GAMLS. The Realsource issue appears to be resolved though. If you can look into the GAMLS issue that would be great. Thanks!

Hi, just following up on our last question. Are there any indicators of what would be causing the long photo processing times for GAMLS? Thanks!

How are you pulling photos? Are you pulling actual images with GETOBJECT Location=0?
Or are you pulling the URLs using GETOBJECT Location=1 or from Media Resource?
GAMLS does have a lot of activity with new listings and updates each day.
Just trying to get a better handle on what your issue is?

Hi, we are using getObject with Location=0. The main issue that we are seeing is an unusually large number of photo updates right around 6:30 am PST every weekday. The tentative theories from our engineers are:

  1. That there is some automated process running in the early morning hours for GAMLS that is updating the photo timestamps even when there has been no change to the photos.
  2. Inadvertent linking between the listing modification timestamp and the photo modification timestamps

We are just trying to dig in to figure out what is going on. Thanks!

Hey,

Just wanted to check in to see if you have had a chance to investigate the GAMLS photo issue?

Thanks!
