    New to this – a few questions re. data

    Hi, I have just installed pi24 on my Raspberry Pi 4, got it all up and running and as of ten minutes ago am successfully feeding data to FR24. No sweat. I would like to know, though:

    1. Is it possible to keep a log of every aircraft that I track or have tracked, in perpetuity (log size / available storage permitting)

    2. Is it possible to see a real-time graphic of aircraft which I am currently tracking?

    I'm using a NooElec Premium, external ADS-B antenna, pi24 and – I think – Dump1090.

    Thank you.

    Local map is at http://<address>/dump1090/

    Keeping logs of that form is complicated, maybe others will have a few suggestions.

    If you just want some general statistics on reception check out graphs1090, you might also want to take a look at the other stuff there:

    address/dump1090 is forbidden; is there some config file I can edit to enable that?

    Is there some reason why ADS-B Range remains blank?

    Location is not configured.

    Use this https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-sc...for-dump1090fa
    Then set the location described as on that page.

    Or you can find out how to configure whichever version of dump1090 you are running

    As you have Pi24 image, you are using the integral dump1090 of PI24 image (unless you have installed another stand-alone version of dump1090).

    In case of integral dump1090 do this:
    (1) Go to following address in your browser
    IP-of-PI:8754/settings.html

    (2) Add following in the field "Process arguments"

    --lat xx.xxxx --lon yy.yyyy
    (Replace xx.xxx and yy.yyyy by your actual latitde & longitude)

    Click Save button, then Restart button.
    Both these buttons are at bottom-right corner of settings page.

    (3) Go to map page in your browser and clear cache (Ctrl+Shift+Delete) then relod (Ctrl+F5)

    Is there something I should do manually to restart graphs1090 and dump1090-fa after rebooting? Neither has restarted and I cannot seem to trigger them.

    They should start automatically.

    How did you install dump1090-fa?
    FR24 needs some reconfiguration to work properly with dump1090-fa, go through all the steps here if you don't want to use the automatic script:
    https://github.com/wiedehopf/adsb-wi...ng-dump1090-fa

    If FR24 is configured wrong, it will install dump1090 1.14 and start that.
    Then dump1090-fa can't start because fr24feed (dump1090 1.14) is already using the dongle.
