20030702: 20030630: ruc20 model output


The CONDUIT feed contains the bgrb (hybrid level), pgrb (pressure level)
and sgrb (surface grid) ruc files, as you will see from the LDM product
headers, so filing all three will be larger than just the bgrb that you are 

The CONDUIT feed is very reliable. Most data reaches us within 20-40 seconds.

I don't see that chisel.rap.ucar.edu is sending in rtstats, so I can't
diagnose your feed quality for latency. Please add the rtstats line to your 
file so that we can monitor the quality of your feed. 

Since you are feeding the entire CONDUIT feed, that alone will peak at 1.8GB an 
You also have CRAFT and other feeds going to chisel, so I would recommend that 
your queue be 
at least 2GB. If your queue is too small, you could lose products before pqact 
gets to filing them.
If you are doing a lot of pqact processing, you might also want to check to 
make sure your
system isn't bogging down on file I/O. You can issue a "kill -USR2 process_id" 
the pqact process id to start verbose logging, and a second time to
go to debug logging. You will see pqact log messages in ldmd.log that state the 
in local processing. Issue the kill command 1 more time to revert to normal 
(you don't want to run too long in debug mode because it will be writing copious
amounts of logging information).

If you see Delay times longer than a few seconds, then your pqact process is 
on disk I/O. If the times are large and approach the lenth of time you
have room for data in your queue, you will loose data.
