Im going to make some/all of this user settable. what would you like to do?
If file ends with ".Z", ".zip", ".gzip", ".gz", or ".bz2", it will uncompress/unzip and write to new file without the suffix.
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)?
