[LDM #VVQ-189516]: Can an LDM client connect to 2 different LDM servers?



Kev,

The LDM can and we encourage downstream sites to have their LDM connect to
two upstream LDM's that supply the same data so that if one upstream LDM goes
offline, the data will not be interrupted. The LDM is designed to make this
an efficient process and to *not* use double the bandwidth in this case.

Not a problem as long as the two upstream providers use different product-
identifiers for their data-products.

> I wish to connect to both of these different LDM servers/datasets with

Piece of cake. The downstream LDM will simply need two REQUEST entries (at
least) in its LDM configuration-file.

Steve Emmerson
