If you’re going to be transferring large files using file.managed in your salt state, make sure you specify show_changes: False, otherwise salt will start trying to boil the ocean and calculate the unified diff of your enormous files.
The clue that this is the problem you're having is if one of your CPU cores pegs at 100% and your state doesn't apply in a reasonable amount of time (minutes, I guess).
Also you probably want to make sure you're not trying to use your large file as any sort of template. By default file.managed will assume no template, which is what you want for large files that aren't templates. I've never used large files which are templates, but I suspect if you tried that you'd have a bad time.
Today is just a quick video to demo my new camera setup made possible by my new studio workstation ‘verve‘.
In the video I demo the new mat/bench camera which supports various zoom levels. Then I demo the iPod touch camera for showing some of the bench equipment. Then I demo the HDMI system which supports two microscopes, the MSO5074 oscilloscope, and the AV switch which usually would show the Xbox among other things (but I couldn’t get the Xbox to work in this video, drats). Finally I demo the thermal cam.
Sorry for the dodgy audio in this video. I will try to make sure that doesn’t happen in future videos.
