Hi Bill, We at Unidata are investigating the "pay per byte" issue and how it impacts our community. With Cornell going through this process currently, and with snow being a valuable upper level relay node, your input is greatly appreciated. Our records indicate that you are feeding approximately 11 sites..does this correspond with the feeds in your ldmd.conf file? Also, have you been keeping any information regarding the inflow and outflow of data incurred by the LDM/IDD processes..? I have some rough "guesstimates" of you ingesting ~ 1 Gb/hour and relaying about 5 Gb/hour...this may be off. Are there others (regents, provosts, etc.) that should be considered when and if opening a dialogue. Do you think the president of Cornell is still active on this issue given the fact that a new president is coming on board. Apologies for so many questions, but we are trying our best to offer up solutions to this problem that would not negatively impact Cornell's ability to ingest and relay this valuable data to the scientific and academic communities.. Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation. -Jeff ____________________________ _____________________ Jeff Weber address@hidden Unidata Support PH:303-497-8676 University Corp for Atmospheric Research 3300 Mitchell Ln http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/staff/jweber Boulder,Co 80307-3000 ________________________________________ ______________________
