Re: Lightning data

Yes!  I have been doing that for some time.  Good to know that MBTiles can also be shared.  I am looking forward to using them.

 

BTW, this dual instance all started because I wanted easy APRS only viewing at times, and easy weather watching other times without a lot of reconfiguring in going back and forth.  You were working with others on HF/VHF instances, so I thought, “Why not give it a try!”  It just stuck.  Once I implemented shared tiles, which took a lot of careful XML file editing, the resources to run 2 instances dropped dramatically.

 

Tnx.

Just another hint, you know you can point both instances to a single directory and they'll share tiles?

Even when I get MBTiles support finished in APRSIS32, multiple instances will be able to concurrently share a tiles database.  Not so on Android or under MOAI, but APRSISCE/32 has the advantage of invoking the SqLite C API natively.

The dual instance of APRSIS32 is what I have settled on, and it works great.  You only need one executable, but you create a shortcut for each instance using the .exe as the “Target” for both, and different “Start in” directories.  Each instance saves its own aprsis32.xml in its own target directory.  Works great.

Um, so I'm running one instance of APRSIS32, and have both IS and Firenet ports defined.  But the Firenet port doesn't have Transmit enabled, nor any of the iGate check boxes (RF to IS or IS to RF). 

Isn't that effectively the same, but all on one screen?

My mind just isn’t what it used to be.  You just reminded me WHY I started running separate instances, one for Amateur Radio APRS, on standard APRS tier 2 servers, and a second instance for weather watching  on firenet.  You also get weather advisories AND warnings on firenet.

Note that you should NOT connect an IGate to firenet.  I've been told that firenet's 14580 ports are not internally flagged as "IGate" ports, so they will NOT remember what stations you've gated and therefore you will not receive messages addressed to those stations nor courtesy posits from the originators of those messages.

If I thought about it hard enough, I could probably come up with a combination of APRSIS32 instances to pull off gating nearby strikezone objects from the -IS to RF without actually using firenet as the IGate connection, but given their update frequency during a storm, I really don't think you'd ever want to actually do this.

Re: Lightning data

Sure.  But bottom line, using two instances only gives a cosmetic separation of the screen's data, no effect on the traffic or functionality.

That's what I was thinking.  One instance is less CPU and RAM consumed, but gives only a single filter to the screen data at a time.

You have Configure / Status enabled with Timestamp checked but not GridSquare.  If you're beaconing a position (and you are) then it is best NOT to check GridSquare because then you'd be transmitting two different precision locations and some APRS clients will ping-pong your station between them.

That's your posit packet.  Various portions of this are configured via Configure / Beacon.  You might want to set your Configure / Beacon / Mic-E Notification to None (you current have it as !INSERVICE!) as that doesn't really communicate anything helpful when using non-Mic-E posits.

That's your IGate status message that says that you have copied 13 stations locally, 4 of them direct, and 1 additional station is beyond the "local" range.  You have not gated any messages from the -IS to RF and the furthest station you've recently copied is N4NE-2 which is 45 miles away at 196 degrees.

Subject: [APRSISCE] Other type Packets
 
Totally new to APRS - I setup an iGATE with APRIS and a TT4 and am receiving a number of packets, but I believe I saw that only position packets will get gated to IS?  I am seeing the position packets nearby get sent to IS and show up on my "stations heard direct" in aprs.fi.

How can I look at the other packets and see what king of packets they are and if they are position packets why they are not being sent to IS?

TIA & 73,

Re: Lightning data

Um, so I'm running one instance of APRSIS32, and have both IS and Firenet ports defined.  But the Firenet port doesn't have Transmit enabled, nor any of the iGate check boxes (RF to IS or IS to RF). 

Isn't that effectively the same, but all on one screen?

My mind just isn’t what it used to be.  You just reminded me WHY I started running separate instances, one for Amateur Radio APRS, on standard APRS tier 2 servers, and a second instance for weather watching  on firenet.  You also get weather advisories AND warnings on firenet.

 

I set this all up in 2016, so I think I will copy parts of your message and put it in a file for future reference.  My mind just isn’t what it used to be, or did I mention that already.

If I thought about it hard enough, I could probably come up with a combination of APRSIS32 instances to pull off gating nearby strikezone objects from the -IS to RF without actually using firenet as the IGate connection, but given their update frequency during a storm, I really don't think you'd ever want to actually do this.

So, according to the second ("Upgrades") telemetry graph for KJ4ERJ at
aprs.fi, it appears that the upgrades are slowing down. So the $20,000

is it ready to be pushed out as the first General release since 2012?

Re: Lightning data

If you own a receiver, you have access to their raw data.  I wrote an APRSISMO extension that polls this data, massages it, converts it to APRS packets, and injects them into firenet on a port that does NOT propagate to the APRS-IS.

I found an old message (#29727 dated 10/22/16 in groups.io) that says to, “…specify a filter of b/KJ4ERJ-15 or o/LS*…”, but that may be old info.  I haven’t tried either of them recently:

Yes! I've had 2 instances running most of the day...One for "normal" APRS traffic (RF & IS), and a second one for NWS traffic on firenet for weather (tornado) watching.  No problems so far.

 

I love the program!  Thank you.

So, according to the second ("Upgrades") telemetry graph for KJ4ERJ at
aprs.fi, it appears that the upgrades are slowing down. So the $20,000
question is:  For those of you running the latest development release,
is it ready to be pushed out as the first General release since 2012?

If your asking if it's ready for prime time, I'm running the 4/27 16:06 version and while I've not exercised everything, nothing has acted buggy.

Only problem I'm chasing is KPC3 KISS status upon program shutdown but that's probably an edit to the config file that I have to tackle.

Oops. Just upgraded... I was waiting for things to stabilize; guess I
waited too long.

Seems to be working. This is under Wine on a Linux box.

Yes, and for now that feature (filtered -IS to RF gating) will remain only enabled with Development in the XML config file.  Until I can get some sort of throttling implemented, I don't want it "generally" available.
