re: Do you want me to login and take a look at blizzard?
>Yes, Please!

OK.  I logged onto blizzard and took a look around.

I see that the REDIRECTions setup for McIDAS specify the
/home/mcidas/savedata directory for output of the XCD decoders that are
run by the LDM.

I verified that the rapid access files used for TEXT products that
are served by ADDE, *.RAP did not exist, as you said in your first
email.  I also verified that some .DAT files needed by XCD decoders
did not exist in the $MCDATA directory (which is /home/mcidas/solaris/workdata
on your system).  The *.RAP and *.DAT files that were missing are created
by the two configuration steps that I sent previously:

batch.k XCD.BAT
batch.k XCDDEC.BAT

After stopping the LDM (as 'ldm), I did as I indicated before:

cd /home/mcidas/solaris/workdata
batch.k XCD.BAT
batch.k XCDDEC.BAT

After these two invocations, the missing *.DAT and *.RAP files exist:

% ls -alt *.DAT

-rw-rw-r--   1 mcidas   unidata     1280 Mar 24  2003 CIRCUIT.DAT

(the .DAT files created are COUNTRY.DAT GROUPS.DAT SIGCO.DAT).

The .RAT files will get created as data comes in and gets decoded.

I am now seeing GRID files get decoded:

and so on.

Please let me know if you see something else amiss.

What remains to be looked into is the creation of McIDAS MD files of
FSL wind profiler data.  I would say the same about NLDN lightning
data, but I see that you don't have an NLDN action in ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf.
blizzard is requesting ANY ".*" from tornado.  Does tornado get
the FSL data?  How about the NLDN data?

Hello, Tom:


Thanks Tom!  "blizzard" is requesting data from rainbow.  "rainbow" gets 
data from thelma, but no NLDN data:

request WMO|FSL2 ".*" thelma.ucar.edu
request UNIWISC ".*" thelma.ucar.edu
request NIMAGE ".*" thelma.ucar.edu
request FNEXRAD "^(rad/|pnga2area)" thelma.ucar.edu
request NEXRAD ".*" thelma.ucar.edu
