Flag in configuration file to force updating metadata
I would like a feature to force FTS update the metadata for a file even if the file has already been declared to SAM.
The usage case for this is when running FTS on a machine with limited resources, and constructing the full metadata for the file might be too expensive. One option is to construct a very simple metadata for the file first, and transfer the file to a FTS dropbox, which will later be processed again by a second FTS instance (e.g. experiments' SAM gpvms). But this will require the second FTS instance to update the metadata for the file even if the file has already been declared to SAM by the 1st FTS instance.
