Large Scale Metadata Harvesting Over Low Bandwidth Connections
Mulder, Rickert (2010) Large Scale Metadata Harvesting Over Low Bandwidth Connections. Technical Report CS10-05-00, Department of Computer Science, University of Cape Town.
There seems to be a widespread perception that large scale metadata harvesting requires a large amount of bandwidth. In this study a simple Python-based metadata harvester was created and run over a residential broadband connection. Results show that it is possible to build a metadata collection in the order of millions of records in just a few days over such connections.
