RFT Documentation

The Reliable Transfer Service (RFT) is an OGSA-based service that provides interfaces for controlling and monitoring third party file transfers using GridFTP servers. The client controlling the transfer is hosted inside of a Grid service so it can be managed using the soft state model and queried using the ServiceData interfaces available to all Grid services. It is essentially a reliable and recoverable version of the GT2 globus-url-copy tool and more.
