By "so tagged" I meant "using the SPARE feedtype". It would be best if 
data-products that have the SPARE bit turned on were not distributed on the LDM 
network that we manage to distribute meteorological data and observations (the

Version 6.7.1 of the LDM is 3 years old. You might consider upgrading.

The pqact(1) program in the current version of the LDM doesn't emit a log 
message like "file: ...", so I wondered what version of the LDM you were using.

Those pqact(1) configuration-file entries will match the relevant 
data-products. If the files aren't being created, then an assumption is wrong.

Does the LDM user have write access to "/apps/rfc/ldm_data/import/test/"?

I note that the log messages indicate that the pqact(1) configuration-file is 
"pqact.conf"; whereas, the file you sent me is named "pqact-1.conf". Is this 
difference significant?

How many pqact(1) processes does your LDM configuration-file (default: 
"etc/ldmd.conf") EXEC? Can you send me that file?

I figured as much.

As I said, the "tagging" refers to the use of the SPARE bit.
