The number of slots is given by the sum of "nprods", "nfree", and "nempty", 
which in both cases is 488281. Your downstream product-queue has more slots on 
the free list.

Probably none.

The command "pqact -vl- >/dev/null" will list the products in the queue.

Because the data-products are sent downstream at different times by different 
upstream LDM processes and because a downstream LDM can connect at any time and 
request data from the past there's no way to tell when a data-product has been 
sent to all possible downstream LDM processes.

The product-queue deletes the oldest data-product first in order to make room 
for a new data-product. The pqcat(1) command previously mentioned lists the 
contents of the product-queue in temporal order, so the first product listed is 
the oldest product.
