NAME

       globus-url-copy - globus-url-copy

SYNOPSIS

       globus-url-copy [options] [SOURCE-URL] [DESTINATION-URL]

DESCRIPTION

       The globus-url-copy program is a command line tool for multi-protocol data movement. It
       supports gsiftp:// (GridFTP), ftp://, http://, https://, sshftp:// and file:/// protocol
       specifiers in the URL.

OPTIONS

       -help, -usage
           Print help.

       -versions
           Print the versions of all modules that this program uses

       -c, -continue-on-error
           Do not die after any errors. By default, program will exit after most errors.

       -a, -ascii
           Convert the file to/from ASCII format to/from local file format

       -b, -binary
           Do not apply any conversion to the files. *default*

       -f filename
           Read a list of url pairs from filename. Each line should contain sourceURL destURL.
           Enclose URLs with spaces in double qoutes ("). Blank lines and lines beginning with #
           will be ignored.

       -cd, -create-dest
           Create destination directory if needed.

       -r
           Copy files in subdirectories

       -fast
           Recommended when using GridFTP servers. Use MODE E for all data transfers, including
           reusing data channels between list and transfer operations.

       -t transfer time in seconds
           Run the transfer for this number of seconds and then end. Useful for performance
           testing or forced restart loops.

       -q, -quiet
           Suppress all output for successful operation

       -v, -verbose
           Display urls being transferred

       -vb, -verbose-perf
           During the transfer, display the number of bytes transferred and the transfer rate per
           second. Show urls being transferred

       -dbg, -debugftp
           Debug ftp connections. Prints control channel communication to stderr

       -rst, -restart
           Restart failed ftp operations.

       -rst-retries retries
           The maximum number of times to retry the operation before giving up on the transfer.
           Use 0 for infinite. Default is 5.

       -rst-interval seconds
           The interval in seconds to wait after a failure before retrying the transfer. Use 0
           for an exponential backoff. Default is 0.

       -rst-timeout seconds
           Maximum time after a failure to keep retrying. Use 0 for no timeout. Default is 0.

       -stall-timeout SECONDS, -st SECONDS
           How long before cancelling/restarting a transfer with no data movement. Set to 0 to
           disable. Default is 600 seconds.

       -df FILENAME, -dumpfile FILENAME
           Path to file where untransferred urls will be saved for later restarting. Resulting
           file is the same format as the -f input file. If file exists, it will be read and all
           other url input will be ignored.

       -do FILENAME, -dump-only FILENAME
           Perform no write operations on the destination. Instead, all files that would be
           transferred are enumerated and dumped to the specified file. Resulting file is the
           same format as the -f input file. Note: if you intend to use this file as input for a
           future transfer, the -create-dest option will be required if any destination
           directories do not already exist.

       -rp, -relative-paths
           The path portion of ftp urls will be interpereted as relative to the user´s starting
           directory on the server. By default, all paths are root-relative. When this flag is
           set, the path portion of the ftp url must start with %2F if it designates a
           root-relative path.

       -s SUBJECT, -subject SUBJECT
           Use this subject to match with both the source and dest servers

       -ss SUBJECT, -source-subject SUBJECT
           Use this subject to match with the source server

       -ds SUBJECT, -dest-subject SUBJECT
           Use this subject to match with the destionation server

           channels.

       -bs block SIZE, -block-size block SIZE
           Specify the size (in bytes) of the buffer to be used by the underlying transfer

       -off, -partial-offset
           Offset for partial ftp file transfers, defaults to 0

       -len, -partial-length

           be used. If set to 0, Partitioned mode will be used. If set to >0, Blocked mode will
           be used, with this as the blocksize.

       -ipv6

           line should either be an alias, noted with the @ symbol, or a hostname[:port].
           Currently, only the aliases @source and @destination are valid, and they are used for
           every source or destination url.

       -sync
           Only transfer files where the destination does not exist or differs from the source.
           -sync-level controls how to determine if files differ.

       -sync-level number
           Choose critera for determining if files differ when performing a sync transfer.

           ·   Level 0 will only transfer if the destination does not exist.

           ·   Level 1 will transfer if the size of the destination does not match the size of
               the source.

           ·   Level 2 will transfer if the timestamp of the destination is older than the
               timestamp of the source.

           ·   Level 3 will perform a checksum of the source and destination and transfer if the
               checksums do not match.

               The default sync level is 2.
