Detailed Description

Protocol-Independent File Transfer.

The Globus GASS Copy library is motivated by the desire to provide a uniform interface to transfer files specified by different protocols.

The goals in doing this are to:

·
Provide a robust way to describe and apply file transfer properties for a variety of protocols. These include the standard HTTP, FTP and GSIFTP options. Some of the new file transfer capabilities in GSIFTP are parallel, striping, authentication and TCP buffer sizing.
·
Provide a service to support nonblocking file transfer and handle asynchronous file and network events.
·
Provide a simple and portable way to implement file transfers.

Any program that uses Globus GASS Copy functions must include 'globus_gass_copy.h'.

Globus GASS Copy uses standard Globus module activation and deactivation. Before any Globus GASS Copy functions are called, the following function must be called:

globus_module_activate(GLOBUS_GASS_COPY_MODULE)

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if Globus GASS Copy was successfully initialized, and you are therefore allowed to subsequently call Globus GASS Copy functions. Otherwise, an error code is returned, and Globus GASS Copy functions should not be subsequently called. This function may be called multiple times.

To deactivate Globus GASS Copy, the following function must be called:

globus_module_deactivate(GLOBUS_GASS_COPY_MODULE)

This function should be called once for each time Globus GASS Copy was activated.

Typedef Documentation

typedef struct globus_gass_copy_attr_s globus_gass_copy_attr_t

Attributes. Contains any/all attributes that are required to perform the supported transfer methods (ftp, gass, io).

typedef void(* globus_gass_copy_callback_t) (void *callback_arg, globus_gass_copy_handle_t *handle, globus_object_t *error)

Copy Callback. Signature of a callback from globus_gass_copy_register_*() functions. (nonblocking transfer functions)

typedef void(* globus_gass_copy_glob_entry_cb_t) (const char *url, const globus_gass_copy_glob_stat_t *info_stat, void *user_arg)

Gass copy glob entry callback. This callback is passed as a parameter to globus_gass_copy_glob_expand_url(). It is called once for each entry that the original expands to.

Parameters:

url The full url to the expanded entry. A directory entry will end in a forward slash '/'.
stat A pointer to a globus_gass_copy_glob_stat_t containing information about the entry.
user_arg The user_arg passed to globus_gass_copy_glob_expand()

See also:

globus_gass_copy_glob_stat_t, globus_gass_copy_glob_expand_url

typedef struct globus_gass_copy_handleattr_s globus_gass_copy_handleattr_t

Handle Attributes. Contains any/all attributes that are required to create lower-level handles (ftp, gass, io).

typedef void(* globus_gass_copy_performance_cb_t) (void *user_arg, globus_gass_copy_handle_t *handle, globus_off_t total_bytes, float instantaneous_throughput, float avg_throughput)

Performance Callback. This callback is registered with 'globus_gass_copy_register_performance_cb' It will be called during a transfer to supply performance information on current transfer. Its frequency will be at most one per second, but it is possible to receive no callbacks. This is possible in very short transfers and in ftp transfers in which the server does not provide performance information.

Parameters:

handle the gass copy handle this transfer is occurring on
user_arg a user pointer registered with 'globus_gass_copy_register_performance_cb'
total_bytes the total number of bytes transfer so far
instantaneous_throughput instantaneous rate of transfer (since last callback or start) (bytes / sec)
avg_throughput the avg thoughput calculated since the start of the transfer (bytes / sec)

Returns:

n/a

Function Documentation

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_attr_init (globus_gass_copy_attr_t * attr)

Initialize an attribute structure. The globus_gass_copy_attr_t can be used to pass the globus_gass_copy library information about how a transfer should be performed. It must first be initialized by calling this function. Then any or all of the following functions may be called to set attributes associated with a particular protocol: globus_gass_copy_attr_set_ftp(), globus_gass_copy_attr_set_gass(), globus_gass_copy_attr_set_io(). Any function which takes a globus_gass_copy_attr_t as an argument will also accept GLOBUS_NULL, in which case the appropriate set of default attributes will be used.

Parameters:

attr The attribute structure to be initialized

Returns:

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a globus_result_t indicating the error that occurred.

See also:

globus_gass_copy_attr_set_ftp(), globus_gass_copy_attr_set_gass(), globus_gass_copy_attr_set_io(), globus_gass_copy_get_url_mode().

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_attr_set_ftp (globus_gass_copy_attr_t * attr, globus_ftp_client_operationattr_t * ftp_attr)

Set the attributes for ftp/gsiftp transfers. In order to specify attributes for ftp/gsiftp transfers, a globus_ftp_client_operationattr_t should be initialized and its values set using the appropriate globus_ftp_client_operationattr_* functions. The globus_ftp_client_operationattr_t * can then be passed to the globus_gass_copy_attr_t via this function.

Parameters:

attr A globus_gass_copy attribute structure
ftp_attr The ftp/gsiftp attributes to be used

Returns:

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a globus_result_t indicating the error that occurred.

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_attr_set_gass (globus_gass_copy_attr_t * attr, globus_gass_transfer_requestattr_t * gass_attr)

Set the http/https attributes. In order to specify attributes for http/https transfers, a globus_gass_transfer_requestattr_t should be initialized and its values set using the appropriate globus_gass_transfer_requestattr_* functions. The globus_gass_transfer_requestattr_t can then be passed to the globus_gass_copy_attr_t via this function.

Parameters:

attr A globus_gass_copy attribute structure
gass_attr The http/https attributes to be used

Returns:

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a globus_result_t indicating the error that occurred.

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_attr_set_io (globus_gass_copy_attr_t * attr, globus_io_attr_t * io_attr)

Set file transfers attributes. In order to specify attributes for file transfers, a globus_io_attr_t should be initialized and its values set using the appropriate globus_io_attr_* functions. The globus_io_attr_t can then be passed to the globus_gass_copy_attr_t via this function.

Parameters:

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_handle_destroy (globus_gass_copy_handle_t * handle)

Destroy a GASS Copy handle. Destroy a gass_copy_handle, which was initialized using globus_gass_copy_handle_init(), that will no longer be used for doing transfers. Once the handle is detroyed, no further transfers should be associated with it.

Parameters:

handle The handle to be destroyed

Returns:

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a globus_result_t indicating the error that occurred.

globus_gass_copy_handle_init(), globus_ftp_client_handle_destroy()

globus_result_t globus_gass_copy_handle_init (globus_gass_copy_handle_t * handle, globus_gass_copy_handleattr_t * attr)

Initialize a GASS Copy handle. A globus_gass_copy_handle must be initialized before any transfers may be associated with it. This function initializes a globus_gass_copy_handle to be used for doing transfers, this includes initializing a globus_ftp_client_handle which will be used for doing any ftp/gsiftp transfers. The same handle may be used to perform multiple, consecutive transfers. However, there can only be one transfer associated with a particular handle at any given time. After all transfers to be associated with this handle have completed, the handle should be destroyed by calling globus_gass_copy_handle_destroy().

Parameters:

handle The handle to be initialized
attr The handle attributes used to use with this handle

Returns:

This function returns GLOBUS_SUCCESS if successful, or a globus_result_t indicating the error that occurred.
