I deduce the following from the above regarding the SIGCHLD:

    1.  Verbose logging was enabled.

    2.  An LDM process on host dante2.renci.org connected to the
        top-level LDM server on host Ldm and caused a child LDM process
        to execute.

    3.  Within the same second, the child LDM process on host Ldm 
        terminated successfully.

The above is consistent with the LDM process on host dante2.renci.org
inquiring as to whether or not it's upstream (feeding) LDM process on
host Ldm was still alive (via an IS_ALIVE message).

The SIGCHLD log message doesn't indicate a failure.  It indicates 
notification of the top-level LDM server on host Ldm that the
child LDM process has terminated with a successful exit status.

You might consider lowering the logging level from verbose to default.

Are there any other questions about the logfile?
