Was wondering if anyone has considered or made use of speed advantages of solid
state drives (SSD) for serving decoded ldm data to gempak, garp, and too-be
AWIPS2 processes running on network clients?
-- particularly in the classroom environment where visualization tools from 20+
network clients are hitting the same $GEMDATA/models/<model> collection at the
When would SSDs be worthwhile? If the (NFS) clients are on a 100 Mbps subnet
and server is on separate 1000 Mbps subnet, is the network the bottleneck,
leaving modern drives or SSDs of negligible difference?
