In a nutshell, nwsip collects measures from a system controlled using NWS (Network Weather Service) and returns a log in LDIF form, suitable to be incorporated in a Globus GRIS (or whatever LDAP-oriented Monitoring Service). It has been instrumented to log the performance of NWS calls. A complex configuration file controls the formatting of the LDIF output.
