Re: [ldm-users] FNMOC LDM data feed

Hello All:

Sorry I have not been keeping everyone posted with information regarding the 

I wish I had better news.  The old server hardware crashed and it is not 
feasible to resuscitate the system.  

New hardware already exists and is in the process of being deployed.  This has 
proven to be more problematic than expected due to IT security concerns.  The 
good news, these concerns have been addressed and work is proceeding.

At this time, I hesitate to give a firm deadline. Our official transition date 
for the new servers is September 1, but I am hoping we can get LDM 
disseminating data from the new servers within a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, the only fallback is the ftp site at ... though after Bob's e-mail 
(below), I see that is having a problem at the moment too.  I will try to get 
that fixed.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Mark,
Is there any way we could get a feed via LDM of the nogaps / coamps data?  
Phil Sharfenstein had set us up with a feed via LDM years ago from but it hasn't worked in quite a while.  
request FNMOC "^US058GMET-GR1mdl.0058_0240.*" 
request FNMOC "^US058GOCN-GR1mdl.0110_0240.*" 
The last couple days, we have not been able to get nogaps data and are getting 
an error message about too many anonymous connections on the ftp server.  We 
really value your data especially for the swell forecasts and our forecasters 
really miss it when we aren't able to download it.
Thanks for your help!

I am now the POC for the FNMOC LDM NOGAPS data feed. 
I am sorry that the LDM feed has not been more reliable lately.  Between 
personnel turnover and hardware issues (old hardware failing, new hardware 
still being prepared) we have experienced a sort of "perfect storm".  I am 
still hoping we can revive the old hardware in the next day or so as a stop-gap 
until the new hardware can be brought online.
If we do not get the old hardware back up, the new system is still about two 
weeks from being ready.  
I will keep this list updated on the progress.
