I would like to split a large file (300GB), which is in my
home directory under the
dev/sdb1 into two (or more) different parts and move them into two different disk drives. However, I would like my system to see the file as one.
To be more concrete I would like to split the file in two 150GB parts (or three 100GB, etc) and move those parts into different SSDs that I have. But, this file is used as an imput to a research project and I would like the system to see it as one. Additionally, I will need to specify its path in another file (a
.prototxt file where I specify all the inputs to my program) and that is the reason why I want to have one path under which the system recognizes that (splitted) file. Unfortunately, the SSDs are not huge enough to hold the whole file.
Additionaly, when I run
df -h the SSDs are show as:
Filesystem Mounted on cluster-name-1-int:/var/tmp/local /import/cluster-name-1-int cluster-name-2-int:/var/tmp/local /import/cluster-name-2-int
My system is ina cluster but I do not think that this will make any difference because I have access from the
cluster-name-1 machine to the SSD on the others.Lastly, I do not have root access, so please tell me if your solution needs root privilages so that I would know and find a way to implement that solution.
EDIT: I provide as many information as I think would be useful. Use whatever you think might help towards a solution and any advice is welcome.
