  • Is my RaspberryPi data feeding correctly??

    Newbie here again with a dilema question. (pS BTW have just installed new software - piece of cake)

    My data feed status shows

    sudo service fr24feed status
    ● fr24feed.service - LSB: Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder
    Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/fr24feed)
    Active: active (running) since Sun 2016-07-24 00:53:57 UTC; 8min ago
    Process: 11717 ExecStop=/etc/init.d/fr24feed stop (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    Process: 11748 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/fr24feed start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
    CGroup: /system.slice/fr24feed.service
    ├─11764 /usr/bin/fr24feed -- --monitor-file=/dev/shm/fr24feed.txt ...

    Hint: Some lines were ellipsized, use -l to show in full.

    vinnyspb says results like this

    $ sudo service fr24feed status
    [ ok ] FR24 Feeder/Decoder Process: running.
    [ ok ] FR24 Stats Timestamp: 2015-07-01 07:55:45.
    [ ok ] FR24 Link: connected [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 Radar: T-XXXX12.
    [ ok ] FR24 Tracked AC: 2.
    [ ok ] Receiver: connected (3313 MSGS/0 SYNC).
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT: ok [UDP].
    [ ok ] FR24 MLAT AC seen: 5.

    My system may need some after market parts. Any suggestions please.

    Jessie handles the service differently.

    For the same output you need to apply a patch

    But using the web config page is your best bet to see whats going on also

      The command you ran is just related to the FR24feed service status - here's my output for comparison:

      fr24feed.service - LSB: Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder
      Loaded: loaded (/etc/init.d/fr24feed)
      Active: active (running) since Sat 2016-07-23 14:19:55 UTC; 21h ago
      Process: 565 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/fr24feed start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
      CGroup: /system.slice/fr24feed.service
      ├─625 /usr/bin/fr24feed -- --monitor-file=/dev/shm/fr24feed.txt --write-pid=/var/run/fr24feed.pid --quiet --log...
      └─647 /usr/lib/fr24/dump1090 --net --gain -10 --raw --mlat

      Jul 23 14:19:55 ADSB-1 fr24feed[565]: Starting FR24 feeder: fr24feed.
      Jul 23 14:19:55 ADSB-1 systemd[1]: Started LSB: Flightradar24 Decoder & Feeder.

      Instead, in the SSH / Command Line you've used, run the command:
      Code:
      sudo tail -f /var/log/fr24feed.log
      This parses the log file, and shows the current status of planes track / dropped etc.

      You'll see something similar to my output (below):

      [I]2016-07-24 11:19:54 | [feed][i]filtering out 30 overlapping AC (saving bandwidth)
      2016-07-24 11:19:58 | [feed][i]sent 20,26 AC
      2016-07-24 11:20:03 | [feed][i]sent 20,26 AC
      2016-07-24 11:20:08 | [feed]removed 1 of 56 AC

      Also, Navigate to 192.168.X.X:8754 which is Dump1090's config page, and this'll verify the planes currently tracked / uploaded.

      Hope this helps

        I have run the sudo tail -f /var/log/fr24feed.log command to check I am sending data. How do I stop it showing the log and go back to a command prompt.
