Thanks! >Well, LDM is doing it too. Can you pass this on to all who are working on >it? Can you tell me which LDM routine(s) are exhibiting this behavior? If it is rtstats, we already have a bug fix available, but it is in the form of source code. This means that you would have to build the LDM from source using the bugfixed code to get past the rtstats memory leak problem. If you decide to do this, I suggest you download and build LDM 5.2.1: <login as 'ldm'> ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu <user> anonymous <pass> your_full_email_address cd pub/ldm5 binary get ldm-5.2.1.tar.Z get binstats.c get ldmsend.c quit zcat ldm-5.2.1.tar.Z | tar xvf - mv binstats.c ldmsend.c ldm-5.2.1/src/rtstats cd ldm-5.2.1/src ./configure make make install sudo make install_setuids For reference, rtstats was added to the LDM distribution starting with 5.2. By the way, I just did a long list of ~ldm on weather2, and I am seeing an incredible number of hidden files that reference 'netcdf'. Here is an example: cd ~ldm ls -alt total 4940 drwxr-xr-x 29 ldm users 200704 Nov 12 13:28 ./ -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:28 .tmp_netcdf.ZAKIOF -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:25 .tmp_netcdf.074jeH -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:24 .tmp_netcdf.ooRtMb -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:18 .tmp_netcdf.jCHHqT -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:18 .tmp_netcdf.lTX1HG drwx------ 17 ldm users 4096 Nov 12 13:18 .mctmp/ -rw------- 1 ldm users 0 Nov 12 13:04 .tmp_netcdf.Ybi29h ... I don't know what these are being caused from, but, even though they are all zero length, they will be a problem at some point. Tom
