Canceling

Type control-c to begin the process of aborting a movedat session.  Type control-c multiple times to exit movedat quickly.

Some kinds of transfers may be resumable after an interruption.  See the sections on Resuming Downloads and Resuming Uploads for details.  Canceling and later resuming an individual transfer is effectively the same as pausing it.

If multiple sources were specified via the command line, wild-cards, or directories, then all unstarted transfers will be abandoned.  If a transfer is currently in progress, an effort will be made to collect the data already in transit on the network before movedat exits.  This can result in a delay between when movedat is interrupted and when it actually exits.  If you feel that it is taking too long, you may type control-c again to speed up the abort process, as described below.

Abort Modes

The following messages indicate what movedat is doing to end its work and exit.  Typing control-c again will move to a later stage of abort, although some stages may be skipped depending on the circumstances.

Wrapping up transfer now, please wait...
Collecting data already in transit and repeating any lost packets.  If the network is completely down, movedat may wait until the transfer times out.

Request stopped, collecting outstanding data...
Waiting only for data already in transit on the network.  If the network is completely down, movedat may wait until the transfer times out.

Aborting attempt.
No data has been received yet, giving up immediately.

Terminating transfer.
Stopping immediately, but still updating checkpoint files.

Abandoning data.
Stopping immediately without updating checkpoints, and minimal cleanup.  The server may not be notified, causing its resources to be retained until the transaction expires.

Quitting.
movedat will immediately exit with minimal cleanup and notification.  The server may not be notified, causing its resources to be retained until the transaction expires.
