pynetdicom._config.STORE_RECV_CHUNKED_DATASET: bool = False

Chunk a dataset file when receiving it to minimise memory usage.

New in version 2.0.

If True, then when receiving C-STORE requests as an SCP, don’t decode the dataset and instead write the raw data to a temporary file in the DICOM File Format. The path to the dataset is available to the evt.EVT_C_STORE handler using the Event.dataset_path attribute. This should minimise the amount of memory required when:

  • Receiving large datasets

  • Receiving many datasets concurrently

Default: False
