Hello, sorry i don't know where to post my question. and so i decided to make a new thread :-) Sorry about that.

What does that mean? ap_12no12aa_B4_P1_00052_20121218_25767.wu_0

RFI? or simply a compute error?

Found 30 single pulses and 30 repeating pulses, exiting.

I would think more likely RFI, but others will know better than me.

Those limits are certainly there to keep too many false signals caused by RFI out of the database. Computation error is very unlikely to cause the overflow, though possible. Another possibility is strong signals from a Pulsar, and we wouldn't be here if we didn't hope for signals from e.t....
