Infoshare: DTN – Data Transfer Nodes: How Fast can your Data Travel? – 9 Dec 2020

9 December 2020, 13:00 – 14:30 CET

Some research projects need to move huge amounts of data. Using a desktop computer and the regular network to do it may not be the right option to get the best performance. Setting up a DTN node is not always straightforward: there are different types of software, some parameters need to be tuned in the servers, distances reduce the performance in TCP…

The GN4-3 project, in its WP6 T2, has performed several tests using the GÉANT Testbed Service (GTS). The results are published in a matrix and the documentation and the scripts to set up nodes in a dockerised environment are available in the DTN wiki (

This Infoshare will summarise the work around DTN done in the project, presenting the results, the matrix and the documentation.


Practical information:
