[erlang-questions] Copy big files over network as fast as possible

Tue Apr 24 18:45:33 CEST 2007

Hi All!

I've a bunch of big files (~500.000 files, each one >100Mb). 
I want to copy them as fast as possible from one machine to another. 
Both machines are in the same 1Go network.

It's a research problem in physic fields. A team of scientists from CERN come with FDT:


the fastest solution available at this time, but in Java :-[ .

So, I start thinking to implement my solution in Erlang.

Has anybody faced this problem before ?
Any advice will be very welcome.
