[LDM #ISX-930596]: LDM slow writing to disk



Tony,

> From Unidata website (
> https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/basics/pqact.conf.html#STDIOFILE)
> I found:
> The STDIOFILE action tells the pqact process to write the data-product to a
> file using the (buffered) fwrite() function. In general, this is more
> efficient than the FILE action but risks loosing data if the computer
> crashes.
> 
> This seems to say STDIOFILE should be the more efficient of the two but
> with the risk of data loss. Am I misinterpreting this?

No, you're not misinterpreting. That was how my late LDM predecessor explained 
it. I no longer accept that the efficiency claim is true, however.

Can you perform the test?

Regards,
Steve Emmerson
