transfer_vn User Guide¶
After editing YAML configuration file, it is necessary to proceed in 3 stages:
- 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.
- Schedule update tasks, based on recurrences defined in the YAML configuration file:
- Regular incremental update, for example in an hourly crontab:
Transfers overwrite data already downloaded. It is therefore not a problem to
transfer_vn --full on part of the database.
