Globus doesn’t have an option to schedule transfers at this time. Most common method to do this is to use something like cron to submit transfer/sync tasks at a defined time and/or repeatedly. The Globus CLI is a good tool to use to submit the transfer. That said, we are exploring options for a service to support repeated/scheduled transfer, not defined release date on that yet.
On bandwidth usage, there isn’t an option in the service for limiting that. We have seem some administrators do this on managed deployments using options at the OS/kernel level. Unfortunately, no good suggestions for a desktop user.
Hopefully a timer task and the Globus CLI can meet this use case. If you have any further questions using the CLI or building some client side script/app for doing this, reach out to us here or on sup...@globus.org
. Some support materials below.
