Best Practices

–        Check the gz files against the md5 file once you’ve downloaded the files to ensure the checksum is correct, if it’s not re-download as a non-match implies corruption.

– You can pause/activate your feed through our partner extranet; note that your feeds are automaticcally paused if you do not download them for one month
