Description :: The LCG File catalogue (LFC) offers a hierarchical view of files to users, with a UNIX-like client interface. The LFC catalogue provides: Logical File Name (LFN) to Storage URL (SURL) mappings (via a GUID); Authorisation on its logical namespace. The LFC relies on a client-server model, using a proprietary socket interface. The LFC server communicates with a database (either Oracle or MySQL), where all the data is stored. The LFC server is accessible on the client side via: A command line interface; The C API; A Python interface and a Perl interface; A read-only distributed catalog can be achieved by using Oracle streams. Both lcg_utils and GFAL support the LFC as a file catalogue.
