>From: "Kevin Polston" <address@hidden> >Organization: NOAA >Keywords: 200305132209.h4DM9pLd021788 LDM-6 upgrade Kevin, We are touching base with all sites that are still running LDM releases previous to LDM-6.0.10 and asking them to upgrade to the most recent LDM-6 release as soon as they can. As of yesterday, the current LDM release stands at LDM-6.0.11. The benefits of upgrading to LDM-6 are numerous. The biggest one is that LDM-6 works much more efficiently at moving large volumes of data over long distances. The bottlenecks seen in such data movements are akin to those experienced on slower links, so we think that this new release would be particularly useful to you. In conjunction to upgrading to the latest LDM release, we are asking sites to report real time statistics back to us. Reporting of real time ingest statistics helps us continually evaluate the performance of the IDD and make adjustments when/where needed. Here is information on building LDM-6 and adding reporting of realtime stats back to Unidata. Building LDM-6.0.11: Information on building, installing, and configuring LDM-6.0.11 can be found online at: http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/ldm/ldm-6.0.11/index.html Reporting real time statistics: The ldmd.conf entry that needs to be added to report real time statistics back to Unidata is: exec "rtstats -h rtstats.unidata.ucar.edu" This 'exec' line should be the last 'exec' line in ldmd.conf. Please remember that after making this modification, you will need to stop and restart your LDM: <login as 'ldm'> <modify ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf> ldmadmin stop <wait for all LDM processes to exit> ldmadmin start If you would like help in upgrading to LDM-6.0.11, please let us know. Thanks in advance for your help... >Kevin Polston >Senior Instructor, NWSTC >Kansas City MO 64152 > >816-880-9314 ext 273 Tom Yoksas
