mountpoint-s3 does not allow reading file content


Hello, I am using mountpoint-s3 in rhel9 for an application to deposit logs, but when I want to read those logs(cat file.log) at the operating system level it tells me that the operation is not allowed because the file is in use, how can I change this behavior so that allow me to read the file in use?

Hello, this seems expected behavior based on the following reference and the error message. You may create a GitHub issue for a feature request.

  • New files that are being written are not available for reading until the writing application closes the file and Mountpoint finishes uploading it to S3
