FDT is a Java implementation of fast data transfer developed at CERN (now the development is hosted by Github). Using this utility one can achieve substantial increase of data transfer rates over WAN compared to traditional SCP/SFTP. When comparing FDT vs bbcp, perhaps the later is more flexible, but since FDT is written in Java, it works for any operating system including MS Windows. You should be aware that FDT does not encrypt data. Only authentication is encrypted, although there are external plugins to implement encryption. If this is a concern, revert to Globus or SCP/SFTP.
scp -p ftd.jar [email protected]where X=1 for 23ID-D and X=2 for 23ID-B.
java -jar fdt.jar -p 50000 -pull -r [email protected]:sourcefolder destinationfolderHere '-p 50000' is the TCP port to be used (this option is mandatory and the port number must not be changed), '-pull' instructs FDT to pull data from blXws5.gmca.aps.anl.gov, and '-r' means recursive directory scanning.
