[Datastream #IZJ-689237]: Additional Datafeeds

Hi Jeff,

Sounds good.

The LDM log setup should be quick to fix.  It is important to get logging
correct, of course, so that problems can be effectively investigated.

This is likely due to more definitions being included in newer GEMPAK tables.

I agree.

No worries.

Hmm... The test we setup here was to request the bare minimum set of data needed
to test Garp.  If you ran a different test, then your results should be 
than ours.  Given that there was some question about how large your network
pipe is/was, it makes sense to start with a minimal set of data being ingested
and then proceed from there.

Again, here is the feed requests we used for our testing:

# The following request line was used for LDM testing
REQUEST FSL2|UNIDATA ".*" idd.unidata.ucar.edu

FSL2|UNIDATA translates into the union of FSL2, HRS, IDS|DDPLUS, and UNIWISC.

> I'm sure I'll probably still run into something else. :-)

I hope not!

> Thanks again.

No worries.
