[IDD #AGE-898572]: What's the best way to find who's requesting data?



Hi Gerry,

 ...

This is LDM 6.11.1's attempt to block requests that are redundant
and thus prevent one kind of denial of service attack.  The
problem being highlighted is:

UNIDATA == WMO|UNIWISC

REQUESTing both UNIDATA and WMO with the same pattern (".*" in
this case) is redundant and will result in a needless use of
bandwidth.  The person in charge of the LDM making the redundant
REQUESTs should be contacted and advised to turn off the WMO REQUEST
as it is already taken care of in the UNIDATA REQUEST.

Cheers,

Tom
