Has anyone seen this?
We have extremely long delays in garp displaying available times for a
given model choice in the Model Plan View selection window. I've
experimented with reducing the number of files in a model directory
and that seems to reduce the wait time. But sometimes the wait is a
minute or two, sometimes indefinitely. I thought maybe it was that
there were no named fdf directories in comet/garp/fdf/scalar or vector
so I copied some for them. eg., for a modelkey of eta218, I just
copied the existing eta212 directory, renaming it to eta218. That
seemed to work for a bit, but later it doesn't have any effect all.
The $GEMDATA is a 100 Mb network NFS mount from a FreeBSD 8.0 on a
Dell PowerEdge 2950 and 1 TB SATA drive on a SAS controller. The LDM
is LDM 6.8.1; GEMPAK is 5.11.4 (pre Feb. '10) on Mac OS X 10.5.
This delay is also observed if $GEMDATA is from an older host running
FreeBSD 6.0 and 2 striped 300GB SCSI drives.
