Limitations and conditions for use: The “-r --recursive” option

The following important points pertain to the use of this option with wget:

  • There is a recursion level limit in ObjectStore: The recursion maximum for an ObjectStore storage group is ten levels. Recursion limits apply to directory depth and following links. This applies even if a wget invocation specifies a higher value.
  • Take caution when using this option: Depending on the complexity of the target URL, a considerable amount of content may be downloaded with this option enabled. Ensure that this will not require more space than you currently have available.
  • Default recursion depth: If omitted, the default recursion depth is set to 10.
  • Maximum recursion depth: 10
    Note: Contact your account representative to see if an increased recursion limit is compatible with your workflow.
