My scp file transfer crashes with time limit. What can I do?
File transfer with scp (ssh secure copy) may consume significant amounts of CPU time due to the inherent data encryption/decryption. In order to allow for the transfer of big files to and from JUROPA/HPC-FF the CPU time limit has been specifically increased on the GPFS nodes.
|Login nodes||1800 sec|
|GPFS nodes||21600 sec|
For this reason, it is strongly recommended to use the GPFS nodes for file transfer instead of the Login nodes.
