The LAS DRDS service accesses data being served by a DRDS server and creates intermediate NetCDF files for potential downstream use by the another service -- typically the 'ferret' service.
The following file is used to configure the DRDS service:
If you configured your LAS to set up the sample in-situ datasets this file should contain:
<drds_servers> <drds name="NWIOOS Server" url="http://nwioos.coas.oregonstate.edu:8080/dods/drds/"/> </drds_servers>
The<drds_servers> XML element contains a list of individual <drds.../>elements that describe how the 'drds' service can connect to the appropriate server associated with an LAS dataset.
To add your own DRDS to LAS you must add another <drds.../> tag to this file.
The attributes of the <database .../> tag are:
- matches the value of the <db_name> tag in the dataset configuration file (see Creating the LAS dataset configuration for a DRDS server).
- the OPeNDAP base URL of the drds server.
