In my company we're having a bad time trying to download with the Artifactory plugin in Jenkins because we have a lot of tiny files in our repository and apparently the plugin works in a single thread, so it takes a REALLY long time. We tested the JFrog CLI where we can set the number of threads for the download and that actually works great. Still, we really need to use the original plugin.
Is there any workaround for this? Maybe it has something to do with the Artifactory server configuration?
Note: We have so many small files because that's how the development is being done in the company I'm afraid. We thought about archiving all the files before we store them but that would probably be non-economical in terms of storage, since every uploaded zip file would probably have a different checksum.
