I am trying to sync the TESLA data using the python api as recommended in ‘how to download’ on the page https://www.synapse.org/#!Synapse:syn8233127
The directory downloaded successfully earlier, but as I try to sync it again (by running the same script, using the function synapseutils.syncFromSynapse), to take into account the changes you mentioned, I am getting this error:
LOCK_DEFAULT_MAX_AGE is set to 2 hours and the DEFAULT_BLOCKING_TIMEOUT is 70 seconds, and the old lock won't be broken unless the age of lock > max age. 2 hours is way too long for a lock to expire.
The R client has a timeout of 10 seconds so I will also change LOCK_DEFAULT_MAX_AGE too 10 seconds. With this change, the lock should be acquired before blocking call for lock acquire times out.
