GT4 GridFTP servers support keeping data connections open between transfers, dCache doesn't even support keeping the control connection open. Therefore, right now the GridFTP client transfers each file on a new connection, which may cause big overhead when many files are transmitted. We should use data channel caching in transfers between GT4 GridFTP servers.
