Changing the Amount of Retained Data

SSEC sets a default of one hour for the amount of GVAR data to be retained (900 SDF files) prior to shipment. Perform the following procedure if you want to change the amount of data retained in your ingestor.

1. From the console, edit the file /etc/init.d/ingcntl

2. Change the value of the variable named SAVE_FILES= to the number of files to retain. For example, a GVAR SDF file represents 4 seconds of time. Therefore, 900 SDF files are generated during one hour of continuous transmission time, requiring about 1 gigabyte of data storage.

3. Stop and restart the ingestor process.
