Hi all, another question, I have a few large files I want to add to the
files
target, some file is about 3G+, I’m getting this error:
Copy code
Snapshot failed: Failed to digest inputs: Throw { val: Error storing Digest { hash: Fingerprint<4728718212c19c56cdcb11074aa5ef1e939461df8de8e5998130854af496d427>, size_bytes: 3395621743 }: Invalid argument, python_traceback:
Not sure what’s the best way to handle large file with pants

Larger files will be supported in
2.17.x
(and should already be on
main
), but aren't before that.

Got u, if I don’t use pex or archive, but just want to copy some large files in the Dockerfile directly, that should be feasible, right?
Copy code
# <root>/my_project/BUILD
docker_image(
    name="docker",
    dependencies=[":pkg],
    # context_root="",
)

# the large files are at <root>/models

# Dockerfile
COPY models /
For some reasons, the files can’t be found when building the image
