Faster file transfers on Biowulf (Biowulf)Date: 04 October 2010 08:10:36
From: steven fellini (sfellini@NIH.GOV)
A modified version of the 'scp' file transfer program called 'scp-hpn' is now available for download. Installing scp-hpn on your Linux workstation or server will allow significantly increased file transfer speeds to/from the Biowulf login node. Testing by the Biowulf staff has achieved average data transfer rates of over 100 MB/s on 1 Gb/s network paths. You can download scp-hpn from http://biowulf.nih.gov/hpn.tar.gz, place the hpn.tar.gz file in the top level of your home directory on your Linux workstation or server and run the command "tar xfvz hpn.tar.gz". See the README file included in the distribution for additional details. Note that this program is not available for Windows or MacOS. Please send questions to email@example.com.
