Test Endpoints

ESnet endpoints: ESnet Test DTN at ANL, ESnet Test DTN at BNL, ESnet Test DTN at LBL, ESnet Test DTN at CERN; test files in /data1 directory. These are read-only endpoints with datasets varying in size and number of files; they are useful for testing network performance.

Globus test endpoints: Globus Tutorial Endpoint 1, Globus Tutorial Endpoint 2; these have a 10MB quota and are used mostly to validate that a new Globus account is working.

Globus sharing endpoints: you may create shared endpoints on the Globus Tutorial endpoints but note that these endpoints may not persist through service upgrades and data stored on these may be deleted without warning; please use only for test purposes.
