[LDM #OFP-197738]: debugging LDM 6.10.1



Sue,

Whew! I'm glad to hear that it's probably not the LDM's fault. :-)

Those two data-products do have the same signature, so the product-queue will 
reject the second one as being a duplicate.

> I am not sure how the checksum is computed but I will look at that.

Typically, the signature is the MD5 checksum of the contents of the 
data-product.

If you're using pqinsert(1) to insert the data-products into an LDM 
product-queue, then, by default, the signature will be computed as the MD5 
checksum of the contents of the file. The "-i" option will cause the signature 
to be computed as the MD5 checksum of the product-identifier, so if the 
identifiers are unique, then so will the signatures.
