Full list of SHARCNET systems



SHARCNET has recently introduced a data transfer node (dtn.sharcnet.ca) designed for high throughput access to (nearly) all Sharcnet filesystems without having to use a cluster’s login node. Unlike the login nodes, file transfer apps are not hindered by cpu time limits. To encourage higher throughput beyond normal scp/sftp, the following file transfer tools are also available: HPN-SSH, Gridftp (if you have a Gridcanada certificate) and BBCP.
