[LDM #PYO-163672]: Want to find out more about LDM


> How does the user access data serve under LDM (HTTP/FTP/etc)?

A user who wishes to subscribe to certain data-products adds a REQUEST entry to 
their LDM configuration-file. The entry specifies the upstream host and the 
desired data-products.

Data-products are "injected" into an LDM distribution system by inserting them 
into an LDM product-queue (which, typically, holds about one hour's worth of 
data). From there, the data-products are distributed according to the topology 
of the LDM network as determined by the individual REQUEST entries. The LDM 
package contains a program (pqinsert) that converts files into data-products 
and inserts them into the product-queue.

Well, you could try the LDM tutorial at 
<http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/tutorial/index.html>. I'm 
afraid it's not very good but it's a start. Feel free to ask me questions.
