    How to tell if a regular o/s file is ready for processing?

      Hi,

       

      I need to read and write to a particular o/s file.  This o/s file is very large and being pushed by a remote server to our local server.

      After the o/s file has been COMPLETELY copied over to our local server, I then need to read and write to this file.

      My question is, which unix command can I use to test if this big(200G) file has been completed copied over to our local server?

      I should not read or write to this big file while it is being copied to our server.  Thank you  in advance. (Solars 10).
