I am using enaBrowserTools (enaDataGet) for bulk downloading raw reads from ENA in a pipeline of mine.
The last few weeks I noticed that I am getting this error message a lot when I use this tool
Error with FTP transfer: <urlopen error 421 There are too many connected users, please try later.> .
I searched it a bit and apparently it has to do with a limit ENA set up that clogs up enaDataGet calling.
And that is an issue for me!
In the past I was using Fasterq-dump but I do not know if that the best option nowadays.
So I wanted to make this post in order to see if there are better alternatives and in general for people to discuss the available tools and their pros and cons!
Thanking you in advance.
