UCAR recommend us to use GLOBUS for large data transfering. Here is a brief tutorial and to transfer data from Yellowstone GLADE to a server.

First, you need to register on globus. ( 

You may want to add your public key on Manage Identities tab (,  see for how to generate your public key)

Setting a end point on your computer (cluster, server, whatever)

$ wget
--2013-06-07 00:14:10--
Resolving (
Connecting to (||:443... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 8291206 (7.9M) [application/x-tar]
Saving to: `globusconnect-latest.tgz'

100%[==============================================================================>] 8,291,206 1010K/s in 8.0s

2013-06-07 00:14:18 (1018 KB/s) - `globusconnect-latest.tgz' saved [8291206/8291206]
$ tar xzf globusconnect-latest.tgz
$ cd globusconnectpersonal-x.y.z

$ ssh
Welcome to, demodoc. Type 'help' for help.
$ endpoint-add my-linux-laptop --gc
Created the Globus Connect endpoint 'demodoc#my-linux-laptop'.
Use this setup key when installing Globus Connect:
$ exit

$ ./globusconnectpersonal -setup 2a0a5d39-a534-4fe7-b78a-acdb00542c52
Configuration directory: /home/go_user/.globusonline/lta
Installing certificate and key
Creating /home/go_user/.globusonline/lta/gridmap

$ ./globusconnectpersonal -start &
[1] 15268
$ ssh endpoint-activate my-linux-laptop

after this, you can only access to your home directory from GLOBUS, you may need to modify /.globusonline/lta/config-paths

You will see:


If you want to add /data/you directory to the authorized directories, add this line

/data/you/, 0,1

Then you need to restart globus.

$ ./globusconnectpersonal -stop

$ ./globusconnectpersonal -start &

Then, your end point is set. You may set yellowstone end point at Manage Data ( ).

Then, you are good to transfer your data.


(Okay, I just put the stuff together after all.)
