Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Support for multiple sources and partial file transfers.|
|Product:||RFT||Reporter:||Ravi Madduri <email@example.com>|
|Component:||Roadmap||Assignee:||Ravi Madduri <firstname.lastname@example.org>|
A file can be located in more then one site. Users should be able to list all the sites in which the file is available. Two scenarios are possible here: 1. RFT can get a portion of file from each site 2. RFT tries to get a file from one site and if that fails get it from the next site in the list. Adding partial file transfer capabilities to RFT will make a high-level service invoke RFT to get a portion of file from a site.
Why is this important ? : This will provide sufficient "hooks" in RFT for a high-level service to provide data transfer solution that reflects a more wide-spread usage scenario in scientific communities where data is available in more than one place. Interested Users: None
