[IDD #OMZ-874415]: GOESR ldm feed

Hi Carol,

The LDM was running on typhoon, but the process which would bring SATELLITE
(aka DIFAX) products to typhoon was _not_ running.  This is why you were not
receiving anything new.

> We are getting the GOES-R data now.

OK, good.

McIDAS processes should have nothing to do with the LDM.

I just took a look, and I see that the LDM queue size is only 500M (the
default).  Since the SATELLITE feed (aka DIFAX) has up to 8.3 GB/hr in
it, the residency time for products in the queue would be pretty small,
about 215 seconds at worst.  Since typhoon's LDM is not relaying data
to other LDMs (my assumption), this should have been OK, but I would
still recommend increasing the queue size to about 8 GB so that it
will hold almost an hour of data on average.

After seeing the size of the queue, I decided to look through the
LDM log file that was being updated when your ingest stopped.  Here
is what I found:

file: ~ldm/var/logs/ldmd.log.1

20180925T151151.309546Z idd.unidata.ucar.edu[32072] NOTE ldmd.c:187:cleanup() 

So, the problem was that the upstream LDM process (the one that was trying to
bring SATELLITE products to typhoon's LDM queue) was unable to insert a new
product into the queue, and then it exited.  This is evidently when new data
stopped being received+processed.  Why this happened, I can not say, and Steve
is not in today, so I can't harangue him about what could have caused this.

So, what now?  I say that increasing the LDM queue size is a good first

<as 'ldm' on typhoon>
-- increase the queue size in the LDM registry, ~ldm/etc/registry.xml

ldmadmin stop
ldmadmin delqueue
ldmadmin mkqueue -f
ldmadmin start

I will ping Steve to see if the upstream process exiting ** without bringing 
the entire LDM ** was to be expected.
