I see 'ldmping' connection on atm: Nov 15 15:41:51 atm.geo.nsf.gov trixie: Connection from trixie.at.fcen.uba.ar Nov 15 15:42:05 atm.geo.nsf.gov trixie: Connection reset by peer Nov 15 15:42:05 atm.geo.nsf.gov trixie: Exiting >My administrator will now allow Trixie to connect through >port 388, I will let you know when it is ready. Excellent. When you are ready, I would like to try feeding trixie the global observational data that is included in the IDS|DDPLUS datastream of the IDD. Since we are still using the "old" ldm, you will need to split your data request for that stream into thirds. I will give you details on doing this when you tell me you are set to go. >The version I have is 5.1.2 It would be a good thing to upgrade to 5.2.2. The reason I suggest this is that versions 5.2+ contain provision for reporting real time statistcs back to our office. We can use these statistics to evaluate the delivery of data to you and to help tune that delivery. LDM 5.2.2 will need to be built from source. Here is a quick overview of the procedure: <login as 'ldm'> ldmadmin stop cd ~ldm ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu <user> anonymous <pass> your_full_email_address cd pub/ldm5 binary get ldm-5.2.2.tar.Z quit zcat ldm-5.2.2.tar.Z | tar xvf - cd ldm-5.2.2/src ./configure make make install sudo make install_setuids cd ~ldm rm runtime ln ldm-5.2.2 runtime cd ~ldm/bin <edit ldmadmin and make sure: change: $hostname="@HOSTNAME@"; to: $hostname="trixie.at.fcen.uba.ar"; <at the same time, you can adjust the size of your product queue. With more recent versions of the LDM, this is set to 400 MB. This is more than enough for the volume of data that you will receive initially.> cd ~ldm/etc <edit ldmd.conf and add the following line: exec "rtstats -h rtstats.unidata.ucar.edu> cd ~ ldmadmin delqueue ldmadmin mkqueue ldmadmin start Again, the LDM 5.2+ distributions allow a site to report realtime statistics back to our office. This is important for tuning your data reception. At some point in the near future, we will be asking you to upgrade again to a new version of the LDM. We will also be asking you to feed from UFRJ. Cheers, Tom
