transfer_vn User Guide

After editing YAML configuration file, it is necessary to proceed in 3 stages:

  1. Transfer of all historical data transfer_vn --full. Note: the probability of a blocking error during this large transfer is not negligible. In this case, it is possible to resume the complete download by limiting the taxonomic groups and/or the start and end dates.
  2. Schedule update tasks, based on recurrences defined in the YAML configuration file: transfer_vn --schedule
  3. Regular incremental update, for example in an hourly crontab: transfer_vn --update

Transfers overwrite data already downloaded. It is therefore not a problem to restart transfer_vn --full on part of the database.
