Re: [ldm-users] New to LDM and Conduit



Samuel,

The feed request lines for CONDUIT that you show below do not subset the
data by region. Rather, they split the total volume of products over a
number
of LDM processes which can improve throughput on slow connections if
you experience latency using a single request pattern.

The LDM is not capable of subsetting autonomous GRIB products into
subregions,
so that is not an option with the CONDUIT feed. At this time, none of
the data products on CONDUIT are regional tiles. The GFS data is sent on
global high
resolution grids in the CONDUIT data stream.

The NGRID data stream provides the products sent on the NWSTG2 NOAAport
channel, and does provide the GFS on a 40km US (CONUS) grid #212. It may
be
that this data set would satisfy your needs so that you don't have to
obtain the
global GFS grids via CONDUIT which are quite large. The following
pattern
(distributed with GEMPAK) will match the GFS CONUS 40km #212 grids
in the NGRID data stream:

# GRIB2 GFS
# AWIPS grids
# Grid #212 CONUS 40km: ^[LM].R... KWBC
NGRID   ^[LM].R... KWBC
        PIPE    decoders/dcgrib2 -m 20000 -d 
data/gempak/logs/dcgrib2_GFS2conus.log
                -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/NAWIPS/gempak/tables
                data/gempak/model/gfs/YYYYMMDDHH_gfs212.gem

In regard to your CONDUIT request pattern of MT.gfs, that is not the
correct pattern to match the GFS data on CONDUIT (The MT.gfs file names
originated from the
NWS ftp servers and were eliminated over a year ago). The file name
conventions for GFS data on CONDUIT are provided here:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/data/conduit/ldm_idd/gfs_files.html

A general request line for GFS data on CONDUIT could  be:
request CONDUIT "nccf/com/gfs"  upstream_idd_host

If you determine that you need the GLOBAL high resolution data on
CONDUIT,
please contact address@hidden an I can help you tailor
a
request line to fit your needs.
