[LDM #QHD-410218]: Redundancy Issues with products

> We have a primary LDM system that manages printing and some other scripted

> Problem we have is that printing and the other scripted tasks will fire

You might be receiving the same data-products multiple times. If a received 
data-product is deleted from the product-queue in order to make room for more 
products, then a duplicate data-product won't be rejected because the earlier 
one won't be found in the product-queue. Because of this, there's a coupling 
between the maximum acceptable latency parameter (typically one hour) and the 
size of the queue: products arriving more than the maximum acceptable latency 
after they were created will be silently ignored; products arriving within the 
maximum acceptable latency window will be checked for prior reception by 
looking in the product-queue.

Prior to LDM version 6.9, this relationship between the maximum acceptable 
latency and the size of the queue had to be manually managed via copious use of 
the pqmon(1) utility to get a handle on the minimum residence-time of products 
in the queue. With LDM 6.9, you can configure the LDM system to automatically 
increase the size of the queue if necessary, or to reduce the maximum 
acceptable latency parameter, or to do nothing but notify you of a problem. For 
more information, start at 
 Pay particular attention to the "/reconciliation-mode" and 
"/server/max-latency" parameters.

Contact me if you don't think this is the problem.
