Notable characteristics: 1) Works with entire directory hierarchies of files, not just single files. 2) Uses a server configuration file that takes module entries that are similar to those used by rsyncd.conf. 3) Flamethrower is an on-demand system. The multicast of a module is initiated when a client connects, but waits MIN_WAIT (conf file) for other clients to connect. If other clients try to connect after a cast has been initiated, they simply wait until that cast has finished, and catch the next one when it begins. 4) The udpcast package is used as the multicast transport, and offers a gob and a half of tuning parameters.
