Data Transfer Nodes

PDSF has dedicated nodes for grid services and data transfers named pdsfdtn1.nersc.gov and pdsfdtn2.nersc.gov.   Both nodes have 10 Gb/s network connections to the NERSC network.

Please avoid using the interactive nodes for bulk data transfer.  Not only can it be disruptive to other users but the network connection is only 1 Gb/s so it will take longer.

For transfers using /project and/or HPSS use the NERSC data transfer nodes - see the NERSC data transfer nodes page.
