[IDD #AAY-341525]: questions about cosmic real time profiles

Hi Bei,

No, not necessarily.  The pqact.conf action I sent you previously matches
the date/time information in the Product ID.  If the date/time information
in the Product ID reflects the date/time of the data in the product, then
the answer would be yes.  I can't say if this is the case since it is the
Cosmic folks who create the Product IDs for the products being made available
by the LDM/IDD.

> But I thought it is supposed to be event-driven and real time.

The LDM/IDD is event-driven.  Whether or not the products being sent
are real-time or not depends on what the originators of data setup.
The typical use of the IDD is to relay real-time data, but any data
can be sent.

It depends on what the Cosmic folks are doing.  If they are making
real-time data available in real-time, then you should receive it in
real-time.  If, on the other hand, they decide to delay the sending of
products by some seconds/minutes/hours/days, then the data will not be
real-time. What you can count on, however, is that the LDM will send
the data as soon as it is available.

This would suggest that the Cosmic folks are delaying the sending of the data.

> So, could you please explain the real time thing of cosmicrt profiles?

You will need to contact the Cosmic folks for an accurate explanation.  All
I can say is that the products are being relayed by the LDM as soon as they
are made available to the LDM.

Again, this is a question for the Cosmic folks.
