Imagine that you were a linux sys admin who wants to distribute a large dir to many servers, let’s say 50GB to 1000 servers. That will be a really boring task!!!

With “gingko” you may do it much more efficiently.

Gingko is a C/S style p2p files/dir transfer tool, its usage and behavior is pretty much like scp. It has the advantage listed below:

Usage

./gingko_serv
to start the server on HostA

./gingko_clnt HostA:/path/to/data /path/to/save/data
to start the download

-h or --help for more detail
