>From: Unidata User Support <address@hidden> >Organization: Unidata Program Center/UCAR >Keywords: IDD feed LDM-6 Hi Daryl, A couple of quick items: - During an email exchange I had this morning with David Wojtowicz of the University of Illinois (<address@hidden>), I found out that a machine you are feeding from, squall.atmos.uiuc,edu, was never suppose to feed downstream sites outside of U Illinois. David will be shutting off non-UI allows on squall in the near future. Given this situation, please change your data requests that are currently pointing at squall.atmos.uiuc.edu to flood.atmos.uiuc.edu. - We see that zelgadis is still running LDM-6.0.10. There was a significant change in the connection strategy between LDM-6.0.10 and LDM-6.0.14: LDM-6.0.10 would first try to connect to an upstream site using LDM-6 protocols, and, if the connection attempt failed for any reason, drop back to using LDM-5 protocols. When an upstream LDM-6 is stopped and restarted while a downstream is connected, the connection can switch from use of LDM-6 protocols to LDM-5 protocols, and the feed will become less efficient for both the upstream server and downstream client. Given this situation, we are asking you to upgrade the LDM installation on zelgadis to 6.0.14 as soon as you can. Thanks in advance for helping out with the above two items! Cheers, Tom Yoksas
