Growing files for Database migration

ASCP Limitations

1) ascp (HST grow files) only supports file level changes and replicate to the remote location

2) Once the file copy completes, it will fail to copy the same file again if any changes later

3) On some scenarios, ascp file copy suspends and it don't follow the growing files on the source and terminates the file copy session after the timeout (default 120 secs)


1) We would need to use async to perform the DB migrations

2) async can be leveraged for multi-session/thread feasibilities

3) async needs to be monitored for the Folder level (root folder) and any changes in the root folder has to be replicated

4) telemetry enhancement for the same.
