[Support #ZQO-437545]: request for IDD connection



Hi Mallory,

GEMPAK does not have an auto purge, but there are many ways to "scour" 
directories.

The LDM queue will simply age off the oldest products as new ones arrive using 
the allocated space for your LDM queue. Scour utilities can be implemented over 
your data directory(ies) to insure you do not fill up storage, depending upon 
your needs and resources.

Will do...

  One more thing -  does it

No, you can request the full feed, or any subset thereof, via regular 
expressions in your ldmd.conf file - or choose whether to file or decode, etc. 
in your pqact.conf file. Either way it has no impact on your upstream source.
