[IDD #JQW-816102]: LDM for AMS

Hi Bradley,

This should be very interesting for the conference attendees!

> The AWIPS2 baseline has migrated from proprietary
> in-house NOAAPORT/SBN acquisition software to utilization of the LDM
> code and NOAAport receiver software.  I was wondering if there exists an
> LDM upstream host to which our client can connect and request as much of

> necessary).

I assume you are referring to getting the feeds for the duration of
the AMS conference.  Please let me know if you mean something different.

We would be happy to provide feeds of all non-restricted data to your
machine(s) for demos at the AMS conference.  Please be aware, however,
that there is currently over 4 GB/hr of data flowing through the IDD
on average with peaks approaching 10 GB/hr.  You will need to see if
you can get a big enough pipe in the demo area at the conference to
be able to handle these volumes.  If not, you will need to restrict
which data you request.

This is not a problem.  We are willing to setup appropriate LDM allows
by IP address for the duration of AMS demos.

> Thanks for your considerations and time.

No worries.

- both NLDN and USPLN LIGHTNING data are proprietary.  We can not
  provide feeds of these data; only the originators can.

  I can give you the contact names for access to both sets of data
  if you like.  You would then need to contact them and see if
  you can work something out.

- the PCWS data is also proprietary.  NOAA/GSD might would likely
  either feed you the data directly or allow us to relay it to
  you for the demo period

- the feed types that you would likely want to get are listed in
  the following current snapshot of data volumes available in the IDD:
