Gail, > We're currently running ldm 5.0.6 on Solaris 9 - and are experiencing > problems with our product queue filling up at an advanced rate. We've never > experienced this before. We've been running this version for many years. Version 5.0.6 of the LDM is quite old. If your product-queue is filling-up rapidly, then that's likely due to reception of more data (since the introduction of LDM 6, there's been a steady increase in the amount of data flowing on the IDD). It's likely that an LDM 5 will have problems keeping up with the flow. > We've just increased the queue size to 140 MB. It looks like we're in > desperate need to upgrade to the newest version. Upgrading your LDM would be my stongest suggestion. > I looked in the support archives - and didn't find any specific step on > upgrading. I would like to know what steps are needed to upgrade from 5.0.6 > to 6.4.5 Upgrading is pretty simple (we have it down to less than three minutes :-). Go to the LDM home page <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/>, click on the latest version, then click on the "LDM Basics" link, and then follow the instructions under "Installing, Configuring, and Activating the LDM System". Assuming you have a standard installation, then the steps should be something like this $ cd $ zcat ldm-6.4.5.tar.Z | tar -xf - $ rm ldm-6.4.5.tar.Z $ cd ldm-6.4.5/src $ ./configure >configure.log 2>&1 && make >make.log 2>&1 && make install >install.log 2>&1 && echo OK OK $ sudo make install_setuids $ cd $ vi etc/ldmadmin-pl.conf ... $ ldmadmin stop && rm runtime && ln -s ldm-6.4.5 runtime && ldmadmin start ... $ less logs/ldmd.log If you want, we can do the upgrade for you. > Gail > > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ > Gail L.
