This article describes how to accelerate Alibaba Cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN) by using the baba-oss-uploader-bin tool. For alternative methods that use the Alibaba Cloud CDN console or the OSS console, see the Attach a CDN acceleration domain name topic in the OSS Console User Guide.
baba-oss-uploader-bin is a handy command line OSS client that you can configure to work with cron, Jenkins, legacy automated release mgmt. tools, and others. It provides a few useful features with strong controls against all changes in Alibaba Cloud SDK.
baba-oss-uploader-bin has the following features:
- Allows mass upload by multipart support.
- Allows bulk upload to OSS bucket with prefix.
- Integrates well with legacy automation tools such as cron, and Jenkins.
- Works with Alibaba Cloud CDN after some simple configuration.
- JDK 1.7 or later is installed.
- Git is installed.
1. From your command line, download the repository from GitHub.
2. Configure .clientprofile.
3. Run baba-oss-uploader-bin.
Note: After you download the repository, you can find the all-in-one package at build/libs/baba-oss-uploader-all-1.0.jar.
4. Configure .clientprofile by entering the following information:
- key.id: your key id from the console
- key.secret: your key secret from the console
- endpoint: endpoint where your bucket is located. For a complete list of regions and their corresponding endpoints, see Regions and endpoints in the official documentation.
- bucket: the bucket name
- prefix: prefix to be added to the keys to identify. It can be the folder name under / (root) or entire path from /
- upload.file: file name or directory to be uploaded
Note: .clientprofile is located in the current path or your home.
5. Use the tool to upload to OSS by running one of the following commands:
$ java -jar [options] baba-oss-uploader-all-1.0.jarOr$ java -cp [options] baba-oss-uploader-all-1.0.jar com.eg.baba.oss.uploader.Main
$ java -jar baba-oss-uploader-all-1.0.jar –Dupload.file=d:/tmp/000006M.dat
- Some JDK distributions do not support –jar options.
- The command line options override all configuration attributes which are defined from .clientprofile. All options are in –Dkey=value format.
- If the file to be uploaded is larger than 5 MB, multipart upload is used.
That’s it! You now can now experience fast OSS uploads for large files using CDN.
