Great, welcome back!

Could be, if you plan to install on same machine that previously ran the LDM 
(and the LDM install is still there). Since it has been quite some time, and 
there have been new LDM releases since you last ran the application, it is 
likely best to do a fresh install. If you have your old ldmd.conf and 
pqact.conf files (used for requesting (ldmd) and acting on the data (pqact) 
they may be helpful to get you going again. We are also happy to help out.

Do you know what data types you are planning on ingesting?


Once we know what feeds you plan on ingesting we can help in determining 
upstream feed sites for you, and can also
offer advice on queue size and other tunings for your LDM install if needed.

> According to the IDD list, our upstream hosts were UW-Madison and 
> Nebraska-Lincoln.

Great, we may revisit these sites, or find others depending upon your current 
data needs.

> Our point of contact was Alan Anderson, but he retired many years ago. The 
> new point of

Thanks, I'll update our list, do you have a ph number for Dr Srock?

Unless you want lightning data, we can handle the comms here. Please let us 
know your data needs and we can
move forward..also the IP and machine name of the LDM host machine will be 
needed for us to get the ALLOWS in place for you.

So, boiled down, we need this:

1) Feeds desired
2) IP and hostname of LDM machine
3) ph number for Dr Srock for our contact list
