I took a quick look at the latency plots for the IDS|DDPLUS feed
on tornado, and see the high latencies you are referring to:

http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/rtstats/iddstats_nc?IDS|DDPLUS+tornado.geos.ulm.edu

I note, however, that tornado is redundantly feeding from seistan
and stokes.metr.ou.edu and the latencies from both feed paths are
equally bad.  To me this means that the problem is likely at ULM
and not necessarily at LSU.

Adam,

Can you check with your network folks to see if there is any known
problems at ULM?  Also, I would ask if packet shaping has been
implemented.  I suspect that there has been some kind of an
imposed slowdown since the latencies for feeds that have low number
of products (e.g., UNIWISC, FNEXRAD) are significantly better than for
feeds that have large numbers of products (e.g., IDS|DDPLUS, HDS).

Cheers,

Tom

Last Thursday we starting taking in alot more nexrad data.  I will comment 
this out to see if it helps the latencys.  Also, we have completely maxed the 
I2 bandwidth out on campus and are in the process of aloting more (3 to 12).  
Another project that I am working on for the campus is a multicasting video 
conference room.  We starting testing on Thursday also.  That's where the 
maxing of the I2 came from.  With it off however we are below the maximum.
