Transferring files to/from ShARC/Bessemer from Linux Workstations
On any linux platform any one of the following utilities can be used to transfer files between iceberg and any Unix/Linux workstation:
User me1xyz wishes to transfer files between his/her /data area on ShARC/Bessemer and his/her Linux workstation using scp.
To transfer an entire directory 'mylocaldir' and its contents from his workstation to ShARC/Bessemer -
scp -r mylocaldirectory email@example.com:/data/me1xyz
To copy a file 'mylocalfile' to their /home directory on ShARC/Bessemer -
scp mylocalfile firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/me1xyz
This command has many parameters that can allow very sophisticated ways of transferring files to remote hosts.
For example, the following command will keep a copy of a local directory named Pictures onto ShARC/Bessemer.
rsync -rltogD Pictures email@example.com:/home/me1xyz
The first time you use this command, it will create the directory Pictures on ShARC/Bessemer and copy everything into it.
The subsequent uses of the same command will only copy the files that were altered/added since the last time.
