data file compression / cache / bz2?


Is there a way to have THREDDS systematically clean up uncompressed
data files?   We noticed that THREDDS can support compressed (gzip)
NetCDF files, but the uncompressed files linger.

A periodic program can be run to scan through and remove them, but
this would assume that the periodic cleaning would keep up with the
rate of uncompression as data is accessed.

Maybe something similar to OPeNDAP Server 3 (dods_cache)?  Even this
has its limits.  If the cache size is not high enough, with enough
traffic, requests will get stomped.   Or just a table in memory
tracking uncompressed files.  If the server/system ever crashed,
then this would leave stuff about.

We were wondering if the same compression support can be extended to
include bzip2 compression (bz2)?
