The Compute Canada Globus instance is an intuitive portal that provides fast, secure and reliable data transfers with the goal of making big data portable. Most Compute Canada storage systems are defined as endpoints for transfers and user machines can be added as endpoints. Most SHARCNET file systems can be found via the computcanada#sharcnet-dtn1 endpoint. General information regarding the Compute Canada Globus implementation can be found at the Compute Canada Globus User Documentation page, and more general information about Globus can be found at the Globus site.
Rather than using this utility from a SHARCNET system, Globus is accessed via its Compute Canada Portal. For up do date details and instructions for signing into the Compute Canada Globus Portal with your Compute Canada Data Base (CCDB) credentials visit the Compute Canada Globus User Documentation.
Once that you are signed into the Globus Portal you will need to select and activate the computecanada#sharcnet-dtn1 Endpoint (using your SHARCNET credentials) to access your files on SHARCNET systems (See image below).
For information about managing Globus Endpoints and transferring from a personal computer see the Compute Canada Globus User Documentation.
Once that two endpoints have been activated transferring files with the Globus Portal is simply a metter of selecting a file or folder from one end point and moving it to the selected Path at the other Endpoint. In the image below the user is sending the "batch" folder from the Path "/~/Downloads/batch_context-master" on their local computer ("jad_lem" Endpoint) to their scratch folder at Orca via the Data Transfer Node (Endpoint = "computecanada#sharcnet-dtn1" and Path ="/scratch/orca/scratch/jdesjard").
