We recently set up a Galaxy server on our cluster. Briefly, the Galaxy server is installed in one server node and jobs are set to run through qsub (to SGE cluster), with the proftpd FTP server and postgres Database set up. We are experiencing randomly issues when uploading files from either website or FTP. Sometime the file upload is good, but sometime it shows zero in size, even though Galaxy consider it is successful (Green in history). When check the file size on the storage, sometime the file size is correct, but show 0 in the webpage, sometime the file size is 0. Everything seems to be happened randomly. We didn't get error massages in the log file and when we track the qsub, even the jobs of uploading files were submit to the same computation node, some are good and some are zero. The issue only happens when uploading files and no matter the files are big or small (we tried files are 1kb 1GB and 10GB), no matter the file format (we tried fasta and fastq) and no matter the file are gzipped or not. Does anyone have any idea about this issue? Thanks!
Thanks for your reply. We are running 15.05.

Merge branch 'release_15.05'
For the ProFTPd setup, we actually followed the instruction from https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/UploadviaFTP?action=show&redirect=Admin%2FConfig%2FUpload+via+FTP
The issue occurs with both local file browsing upload and FTP upload. We didn't test URL and pasted data.
The issue occurs since the server was set up.
