[NOAAPORT #VHS-648329]: noaaport ingest

Hi Randy,

I don't either.  But, even if there was, the EXEC actions in
your ldmd.conf file are not setup to process the NIMAGE data.

Yes, and one of the EXEC lines in ldmd.conf will need to be

Here is an example pattern that will FILE the products as received
(meaning that the products will still be compressed in the same
format that they are sent in NOAAPort):

# Zlib compressed NOAAPORT GOES-East/West GINI Images -- FILE
NIMAGE  ^satz/ch[0-9]/.*/(.*)/([12][0-9][0-9][0-9][01][0-9][0-3][0-9]) 
        FILE    -close


- this is only an example; you may well want to adjust it to suit
  your overall setup!

- in the entry, certain white space are tabs, not spaces

  The action should be read as:


- one of the ldmd.conf EXEC lines needs to be modified to process NIMAGE data

  I suggest modifying:

exec "pqact -f WMO|NGRID /usr/local/ldm/etc/pqact.conf"


exec "pqact -f WMO|NGRID|NIMAGE /usr/local/ldm/etc/pqact.conf"

  AND putting the action at the end of ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf.


- after modifying the ldmd.conf file, the LDM will need to be stopped/started
  for the change to take effect

- if all you are doing is modifying an action in a pattern-action file, you
  do not need to stop/restart the LDM

  Instead, you need to test your editing changes and, if there are no errors,
  send a HUP signal to the toplevel LDM server:

<as 'ldm'>
-- modify, for example, ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf
ldmadmin pqactcheck
-- if there are no errors indicated, send the HUP signal
ldmadmin pqactHUP


- has someone there taken over Martha's activities of configuring and
  maintaining the LDM?

  If yes, that person should be doing the things listed above.


- you said in an previous email that the objective was to get the
  data for AWIPS-II use, not for McIDAS:

  Not that i will be using the data in mcidas but i just want to look at it.
  the end game is for the awips boys to access the data for their project.

  If by "awips boys" you mean AWIPS-II, then be aware that AWIPS-II has
  its own way of configuring an LDM to get data into the system for EDEX
