Holding Bin for UDT Example Stuff


  1. Create slice in Flack
  2. Load rspec udt.rspec and submit for sliver creation. (Include a picture here.)
  3. Log into pc1 and pc2 in separate windows.
  4. On pc1, start a UDT file transfer server, using this command:
    % pc1:~% /local/udt4/app/sendfile
    server is ready at port: 9000

On pc2, start a UDT file transfer client, using this command:

pc2:~% /local/udt4/app/recvfile pc1 9000 /local/datafiles/sm.10M /dev/null

You should see output like the following in your pc1 window, showing the results of the file transfer. Note the transfer rate.

new connection:
speed = 7.14472Mbits/sec
  1. There are three data files available for transfer tests: /local/datafiles/sm.10M is 10MB, /local/datafiles/med.100M is 100MB, and /local/datafiles/lg.1G is 1GB. Leave your transfer server running on pc1, and try transferring each of these files in turn by typing the appropriate commands on pc2. Keep track of the transfer rates in each case.
  2. Now let's compare the results to a TCP-based (FTP) transfer. On pc2, start an ftp client:

(You type ftp pc1, the user name anonymous, and any password you want, although your e-mail address is traditional.)

pc2:~% ftp pc1
Connected to PC1-lan1.
220 (vsFTPd 2.3.2)
Name (pc1:mberman): anonymous
331 Please specify the password.
230 Login successful.
Remote system type is UNIX.
Using binary mode to transfer files.

Still on pc2, request a file transfer. Note the reported file size, transfer time, and transfer rate.

ftp> get med.100M
local: med.100M remote: med.100M
200 PORT command successful. Consider using PASV.
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for med.100M (104857600 bytes).
226 Transfer complete.
104857600 bytes received in 1.75 secs (58508.9 kB/s)
