netCDF synchronization software

CDFsync is a program that allows users to rapidly synchronize a set of netCDF files over a network. Fast synchronization times are achieved by only transmitting the differences between files. It is built on the Open Source rsync program, but contains a number of optimizations including:

  • Special handling of netCDF files for faster synchronization calculations
  • Much faster updates of large numbers of small netCDF files
  • In-place updates of large netCDF files

The latest version should run on Linux variants and Solaris.

You can look at the latest documentation or download the latest version.
