Hi Gerry,

I jumped onto sasquatch a few minutes ago and have the following comments:

- the machine configuration looks very good:

  dual Opteron
  4 GB queue
  8 GB RAM

- please load Tcl/Tk and iostat (like on bigbird) so we can run the uptime.tcl
  monitoring

- the overall ingest and relay configuration looked good, but I decided
  to tweek the request lines in ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf:

  - combine all feed requests from bigbird into a single request line

- there is something amiss with processing of MADIS data:

Sep 02 15:52:01 sasquatch pqact[2619] ERROR: pbuf_flush (3) write: Broken pipe
Sep 02 15:52:01 sasquatch pqact[2619] ERROR: pipe_put: 
-closebin/store_MADIS.shdata/LDAD/mesonet/netCDF20050902_1400.gz write error

-closebin/store_MADIS.shdata/LDAD/mesonet/netCDF20050902_1400.gz write error

- mesodata3 is trying to request data from sasquatch but is being continuously
  denied:

Sep 02 16:08:49 sasquatch rpc.ldmd[12101] NOTE: Denying connection from 
"mesodata3.TAMU.EDU" [165.91.140.24]
Sep 02 16:08:54 sasquatch sura-uf-pe6600-1[12110] NOTE: Switching data-product 
transfer-mode to primary

At the current time, I have no explanation for the sawtooth pattern for
the EXP latency from sasquatch on sura-uf-pe6600-1.coastal.ufl.edu.
BTW, I see the same sawtooth latency pattern on products received from
sasquatch -- but much worse -- on ldm.itsc.uah.edu.

My first inclination is to downgrade the LDM on sasquatch to LDM-6.3.0
and see if that makes any difference...  Before downgrading, and since
the LDM-6.3.0 code was built back in may, I wanted to rebuild LDM-6.3.0
from source:

<as 'ldm'>
cd ~/ldm-6.3.0/src
make distclean
./configure

At this point I am seeing some flags being set for the eventual make
that seem to indicate that the build environment may not be quite
correct.  I will need to discuss this with Steve Emmerson to see if I
am misinterpreting something (I'll get back to you).

Please let me know when Tcl/Tk and iostat have been installed on
sasquatch so I can turn on performance monitoring (like I did on
bigbird early this morning).  I am at home at the moment, but
will be heading into work momentarily.

Cheers,

Tom
