[IDD #GOK-818269]: Help -- NEXRAD3 feed no longer working, along with some GOES imagery from UNIWISC

Hi Marcus,

It looks like you have already done the easiest thing to mitigate somewhat
the effect of packet shaping: splitting your feed requests into separate
ldmd.conf REQUESTs.  The next step (other than getting your network folks
to ease up on the packet shaping) would be to determine what subset of each
feed you want/need.

The way the LDM works is that individual products are sent and they are either
received or not.  There should never be an instance of a part of a product being

This will take digging on our side.  The better question is what do your log
files say?  For instance, are you seeing any indication of problems in
the LDM log file (~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf), and/or are you seeing any indications
of problems in the log file(s) for the GEMPAK decoders you are running

Thanks for the FYI.  Your surmise is correct, however: you would see no 
running LDM 6.9.8 than with 6.8.1.

3 Mbps should be enough to get the data you are currently requesting.


- think about what NEXRAD3 data you do _not_ want/need

- think about what model output you can do without
