  • mlat data?, how can i check it ?

    hello.
    How can i check if i am feeding Mlat data to?
    i am tracking now a chopper that has the mlat tag, but on the website it says, unknow callsign.
    so, is there way to check my feed status ?

    It wont work with just you.

    MLAT needs minimum 4 receivers. And always including at least 1 F- FR24 feed

    As long as web status page says MLAT OK, then its fine

        What does the "F-" stand for at the front of the radar name? Mine is a "T-", I think.

        Is there a page that explains this?

            You can check your log- See if you're pinging the server every 20 seconds or so:

              cd /etc/init.d/fr24feed
              sudo service fr24feed

                  You dont need to change path if installed correctly.

                  Check out my Common Commands tips..

                  http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...-FAQs-and-Info

                  Start feed software with full screen output to diagnose possible errors
                  sudo fr24feed start
                  (ctrl C to terminate)

                  Start feed software as service in background (starts on reboot)
                  sudo service fr24feed start

                  Stop fr24feed
                  sudo service fr24feed stop

                  Check fr24feed status
                  sudo service fr24feed status

                      MLAT values doubt... working OK or not?

                      Hi,

                      Just installed fr24feed in a Rasp Pi 3 and everything went OK, but when I tried to check the status with "sudo service fr24feed status" I only get useless info, not the statuses I've seen all over the forum. The only useful info I get is this path "/dev/shm/fr24feed.txt" which is the monitor.txt of for the webserver..

                      In that file I see things like these:

                      mlat-mode=UDP
                      mlat-number-seen=10
                      mlat-ok=YES
                      mlat-started=YES
                      mlat-time-last-ping=1468588897
                      mlat-time-last-push=1468588899
                      mlat-time-last-push_count=36
                      mlat-time-last-seen=1468588899
                      mlat-time-stats=1468588902
                      mlat-uplink-stats=0
                      mlat_problem=no-config

                      I would like to know what "mlat-number-seen=10" means because in the normal fr24feed.log file, I see values like "[mlat][i]Stats 92137/33" and I'm not sure what is the difference... and of course, the "mlat_problem" line doesn't say much...

                      My normal fr24feed.log file says everything seems OK.

                      Best regards.

                          Use the web config page instead. Equally more than the commandline status
