6.10.0 2011-10-18 11:01:05-06:00
Merged the NOAAPORT package into the LDM package.
Corrected a bug in the deprecated readnoaaport(1) and dvbs_ingest(1)
programs that caused an abort if the logging level was DEBUG due to the
shared memory FIFO being already locked.
Improved noaaport/gempak error messages -- in particular, added
information to messages about missing tables and parameters.
Merged the GRIBINSERT package into the LDM package. This subpackage
converts GRIB messages in files into LDM data-products and inserts them
into the LDM product-queue.
Improved GRIB2 tables:
Made installation rule create links instead of install duplicate
Moved site-specific stuff from "g2varswmo.tbl" to "g2varsncep.tbl".
Improved log messages:
The PID and command-string of every child process is logged at
level ERROR if its parent pqact(1) process deletes the reference to
the child process due to an error in an interaction with it.
The PID and command-string of every child process created due to a
PIPE entry and whose reference is deleted in order to create
another pipe is logged at level INFO.
Changed when product-queue metrics are reset by ldmadmin(1) and added
queue metrics resetting to "ldmadmin start". The metrics are no longer
reset if the reconciliation-mode is "do nothing".
Improved the command "vetqueuesize" (and, consequently, the command
"check"). The capacity of the product-queue will not be vetted until
the LDM server has been running for at least `regutil
/server/max-latency` seconds. This will prevent a misdiagnosis of the
queue capacity when an initially empty queue is being rapidly filled at
Improved "plotmetrics" command:
Ported most of the command to SunOS. Getting the number of LDM
connections is still problematical, however, because the output of
SunOS's netstat(1) differs radically from Linux's netstat(1).
Made the plotMetrics(1) script more portable by replacing
arithmetic expansion with use of expr(1).
Changed the title of an "ldmadmin plotmetrics" plot to "Amount of
Data in Queue vs. time".
Improved "ldmadmin newmetrics" example: corrected minute and hour
fields and changed interval to weekly.
Corrected spelling of "reconciliation"
Documented "mvrtSize" & "mvrtSlots" in output.
Improved error-message when queue is too big.
Improved installation documentation.
Made tarfile reference version-independent.
Modified README: removed RELEASE_NOTES section and modified SUPPORT
Fixed error-logging when LDMHOME isn't set
Many changes related to porting to different platforms.
