Re:Request authorization at the upstream LDM


A clarification:

The GOES data distributed via the LDM/IDD is not "archived data" it is
real time...queues can hold data (generally 1 hour, but sometimes up to 4
and as many as 12 hours) for about 1 hour.

Also, we prefer to have only one feed into a campus (prudent use of

gusher has primary and alternate feeds to aid in its robustness, and
I do understand your concern if gusher goes down. Now keep in mind, a
secondary would only be of help if the actual machine gusher went down,
unless your dept is on a completely different network.

Not trying to stop progress, but perhaps re-think the need.

If you feel gusher is not stable enough to provide you with the data you
will need/desire, we are more than happy to find a secondary feed for your
