I have a situation where I server 10 VOD files that get updated every hour. They are updated by a shell script. The problem is that Wowza/JDK goes crazy on resources when these file updates begin. I believe the reason is because some users are viewing these files while they are being overwritten.

My question is:
Is there any option in config files where I can instruct Wowza to not get upset if a file it's currently reading starts being rewritten by a shell script?

Thank you in advance for your help!
