How can I send a large Content Store to IXIASOFT using Linux?

You can split the Content Store archive into multiple parts using the split command.


I need to split my Content Store into smaller parts to prevent file transfer timeouts.


  1. Make a backup of your Content Store.
  2. Compress and split the backup using either zip or tar.
    • To use zip:
      zip -r <docbase folder>
      split -b 256M ""
    • To use tar:
      tar cvzf - <docbase folder> | split -b 256M - "docbase.tgz.part"
