Edwin, First off, you should upgrade to version 6 of the LDM -- it's much more efficient than LDM 5. Second, how far back in the product-queue an upstream LDM starts is under control of the downstream (i.e., the requesting) LDM. The "-o time-offset" option of the ldmadmin(1) script can be used to specify how far back to start. Contact me if you have further questions.

I spoke to you recently as we installed LDM version 5.2.2 on a Linux machine that is part of our AWIPS network. We have used various versions of LDM over the years and I was never quite sure about storing incoming products in the event LDM stopped running. We have had times when LDM has died for one reason or another but we continue to queue products using "pqinsert" from a separate data handling script. Ideally we would like LDM (once restarted) to work its way through any queue that has built up over time rather than blasting the queue or paring the queue. Do you have any ideas or info on this topic? thanks, Ned ------- End of Original Message
