You are running pqact with a specification for a pattern of which products it will read out of the queue: address@hidden:/data5/data2/mcidas/data% ps -eaf | grep pqact unidata 9186 8638 0 17:14:25 pts/5 0:00 grep pqact unidata 27477 27470 1 Aug 09 ? 32:42 pqact -d /data1 -q /ldmpq/pqsurf.pq /unidata/etc/pqsurf.conf unidata 27469 27466 1 Aug 09 ? 103:40 pqact -d /data1 -p (^[9A-OQ-X])|(^[YZ].[^AHIJ])|(^FSL)|^[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9].g3 The pattern specified as the value of the '-p' flag does not allow for reading of the PNG compressed imagery since its header does not begin with a capital letter. You should later this pattern so that it allows pqact to process lines with headers that look like: pnga2area Q. ... >Thanks, This was interesting at the least. I am guessing that you are specifying the pattern since you don't necessarily want to process the stuff in the queue that may be fed to downstream sites. Let me know if you don't think that this is the solution. Tom
