Hi Martha,

No worries.

OK.

Yes, they also appear to me to be files from CONDUIT.

The question remains why you need to scour these files as frequently
as you now doing?  I was under the impression that the problem you
were originally trying to solve was one of there being too many
BUFR files in a directory being populated by McIDAS-XCD GRIB/BUFR
processing.  Those files are _not_ held open, and can be deleted
as often as you like.  Since there is no BUFR ADDE server in the
current McIDAS distribution, you can quickly delete the BUFR files
without worrying about making sure the MySQL database that is keeping
track of GRIB metadata is in sync with your deletions.  If the
problem is the number of GRIB files being saved by the McIDAS-XCD
GRIB/BUFR processing, then you _do_ have to worry about keeping
the MySQL database in sync with the disk file deletion.

I would choose the path of least resistance and not worry so much
about scouring files that likely do not need to be scoured as
frequently.  Instead, concentrate on the BUFR files from CONDUIT that
are being written to disk as part of the McIDAS-XCD processing.

Cheers,

Tom
