[Bioclusters] NCBI updates and how you do them

 On our cluster we use UDPcast ( http://udpcast.linux.lu/ ) to push the data 
to the nodes, and rsync afterwards to double check the transfer.
The way I understood it, rsync and the (non FASTA) blast databases don't 
work well together, you end up sending the complete database through rsync, 
which isn't the best solution if you want to push data to a lot of nodes at 
the same time.
But maybe that isn't the case anymore, what do you see when you update the 
database through rsync ?
 UDPcast works by broadcasting the data to the nodes, on which listeners 
pick up the data. 
There are other ways to distribute data form one to many, but UDPcast works 
fine for us.
  Kind regards,
