SFTP - File size restriction

Hello All ,

We are using the SAP Standard SFTP adapter. Our scenario is 3rd party - SAP PI - SAP ECC(Idocs). We are having around 15 interfaces for posting HR data to SAP. These interfaces run at night as per the automated channel schedule(In a sequence) set in SAP PI.

Problem :

The third party sometimes send very large files around 100 MB whcih get stuck in PI and we have to take system restart.

Proposed solution :

We will be restricting the file size by using parameter in SFTP sender adapter to say 5 mb.

Issue :

As this is HR data so the interfaces need to be processed in Sequence only as per info types. IF we receive a file which is greater than 5 MB then that will not be picked by PI but the subsequent interface files will be processed from PI and that will result in Idoc sequencing issues in ECC.

As part of this we want to achieve is : If a file is ingnored by PI then the subsequent interfaces should not be processed. After correcting the faulty file the interfaces should be processed as per sequence.

Any idea on whether this can be achieved or not?
