Aria2c for the win!

I’ve not heard of aria2c before today. Sort of a super wget as far as I could tell. Does parallel transfers to reduce data motion time, if possible.

So I pulled it down, built it. I have some large data sets to move. And a nice storage area for them.

Ok.

Fire it up to pull down a 2GB file.

Much faster than wget on the same system over the same network. Wow.

Then the rest of the ML data set. About 120GB in all.

Yeah, this is a good tool. Need to make sure it is on all our platforms.

Sort of like gridftp but far more flexible.

Definitely a good tool.
