xrdfs understands the topology of a xrootd cluster, and therefore piece together the dirents from all data servers. I guess the xrootd python binding doesn't have this function.

regardless, doing this from a remote client (be that xrdfs or others) is not scalable. If a dir has many items, the latency over WAN will kill the performance if you do an equivalent of "ls -l" (readdir() + stat())

Subject: python bindings raise error, while standard xrdfs is working as expected

Hi XrootD list,
i have setup some automatic agents which use the python bindings for xrootd (version: 4.5.0).

In python I call:

from XRootD import client
>>> xc = client.FileSystem("root://xrootd-dampe.cloud.ba.infn.it:1094")
>>> xc.dirlist("/MC/simu")
(<status: 1, code: 400, ok: False, errno: 3011, error: True, message: '[ERROR] Server responded with an error: [3011] Unable to open directory /MC/simu; no such file or directory\n', fatal: False, shellcode: 54>, None)

the server appears to be there though:
>>> xc.ping()
(<status: 0, code: 0, ok: True, errno: 0, error: False, message: '[SUCCESS] ', fatal: False, shellcode: 0>, None)

and when i do the same with xrdfs, i get the directory listing correctly returned.

[zimmers@login1 log]$ xrdfs xrootd-dampe.cloud.ba.infn.it:1094 ls /MC/simu
/MC/simu/allMuon-v5r4p0_1GeV_100GeV
/MC/simu/allElectron_v5r3p0_1GeV_100GeV_Orbit_57388
/MC/simu/flatProton-v5r3p1_500GeV_5TeV
/MC/simu/allProton-v5r3p1_100GeV_10TeV-p3


so what am I perhaps doing wrongly here? Or could this be due to some xrootd server configuration part?
Thanks!
-Stephan
