Re: Tellicast 2.14.5-1 100% CPU

George,

all I know is described in my attachment of message #28250. I installed the SafenetAuthenticationClient-core-9.0.43-0_amd64.deb.
It's now a while I haven't run this TelliCast receiver Io. I just restarted it now and you should see it on http://185.74.120.175:81
It will have a couple of lost packets though due to the latest TBS-6903X card with still experimental driver it uses.

Cheers,
Ernst

I did. tc-cast-client -k checks out fine, but as the client is running and it interacts with the EKU, sooner or later it will hog the CPU, even if it's not receiving any data (dvb-eumetcast stopped). The other PC I mentioned is of a much older architecture. It's an E5300 running in some 10yr old Gigabyte motherboard. My main eumetcast PC is a Lenovo i5 Haswell. Makes no difference, same CPU hog. It seems Tellicast is bombarding pcscd with CMD_GET_READERS_STATE and somehow that makes it go haywire. I don't remember the old client doing this but unfortunately I don't have a backup of that.

I also learned there is a newer version of the Safenet software but I did not find it anywhere. It's available from the manufacturer but it's behind a wall. Maybe that would help, I don't know.

George,

did you also install the new 64Bit EKU software? See my message #28250.

I narrowed this down to a problem with my hw key. When running pcscd in debug mode, the following repeats over and over when tellicast is running.

00000029 [139713218291456] winscard_svc.c:361:ContextThread() Received command: CMD_STOP_WAITING_READER_STATE_CHANGE from client 8
00000008 [139713218291456] winscard_svc.c:440:ContextThread() CMD_STOP_WAITING_READER_STATE_CHANGE rv=0x0 for client 8
00000028 [139713218291456] winscard_svc.c:361:ContextThread() Received command: CMD_WAIT_READER_STATE_CHANGE from client 8
00000006 [139713218291456] winscard_svc.c:832:MSGSendReaderStates() Send reader states: 8

I don't remember this happening with the old client/driver combo. I tried a different distro on a different computer and the result is exactly the same. Without the key plugged in, tellicast is running normally, but it's not much of a solution. I'm clueless at the moment, really.

I can't believe Eumetsat hasn't noticed this, or maybe they're just running some ancient version of Linux? I'm running Ubuntu Server 18.04.2 LTS and Fedora 30.

Hello Mike,
Both those services are now on HVS-1.

Metop-C AVHRR is channel E1H-EPS-10 and
GOES 17 is channel E1H-TPG-3. Unlike GOES 16 which has 15 minute data, the GOES 17 is ½ hourly intervals.

There are other Metop services on HVS-1 such as GRAS etc., but I assume those will be of little interest.

Hope that helps and hope you are now keeping better.

Best regards,
Douglas.

Re: New version EUMETCastView 1.4.6

Hugo
 

Hello George,

As already mentioned by Ernst, the I-band of VIIRS is not available in Eumetcast. Maybe in the future ...

Kind regards,

Hugo

Re: New version EUMETCastView 1.4.6

Ernst Lobsiger
 

George,

There is AFAIK no VIIRS I-Bands on EUMETCast so far. That's probably why Hugo does not (yet) support it.
If you are looking for a rather complete l1b VIIRS support including many composites you could try PyTROLL.

It's still in development but you can already do wonderful things (like some we just recently found out ...).

Regards,
Ernst

Tellicast 2.14.5-1 100% CPU

George Sz
 

Hello,

I've upgraded to the latest, now finally 64 bit software package from Eumetsat and I immediately ran into an issue. After about 10-15 minutes of normal operation, the process shoots up to 100% CPU usage and it stays that way. It even triggers the built-in watchdog, saying it exceeded the 95% CPU threshold. I disabled this watchdog and the software works for now but this is not optimal (especially not for power usage).

Has anybody ran into this issue? I was looking at htop but it doesn't show any useful info. If anybody experienced this error and found a fix, please let me know.

Thanks,
George

Re: New version EUMETCastView 1.4.6

George Sz
 

Hello,

Thanks for the release.

I've been using your software now and then, mostly for VIIRS viewing. Would you be able to add I-band processing capability to your software? I'd be willing to donate for that cause.

Regards,
George

Re: 1.2m DISH

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Robert,

the Gibertini OP-125L is a good dish though I had some mechanical problems with elevation settings.
To tranport such a dish on the roof of a custom car is quite an adventure to say the least. Speed limit
whithout wind is 45 MPH whatever your fixation. I have done that some 150 Miles on highways and
know what I'am talking about ...

Regards,
Ernst

Re: 1.2m DISH

Brian
 

Have a Gibertini not used in years and then only briefly as problem was LNB, it currently lives in the garage!
Was keeping it for HVS-1 & 2 but 1M dish works perfectly here except under heavy rain.

Location is near Harwich.

1.2m DISH

Robert
 

Hi
I am looking for a 1.2m dish for receiving HVS-2.  I do want it both ways!! ie not too expensive but a good quality dish.

Does anyone have one for sale or can you suggest where is a good place to purchase one.   

I can collect if it is not too far away.  My location is Rudgwick nr Horsham

Many thanks ans 73s

Hello!
I am using eumetsat.
As you can see I can recieve the files partially.
When I enter eumetsat.bas, the icon is dark.
Then I get the message "warning reset" or "error".
I am using the Msg Manager V3.1.10.1268 and cannot see this software working.
Please can you help
=================================

Heinz,

Thanks for posting the screen-shots.

Looking at the TelliCast Statistics page, I see a non-zero value for Missed Packets, and for Recovered Packets. For receiving just the Basic Service (which I would advise to start with) I would expect a zero value for both numbers as you are located in Austria. The exception might be if you now have the High Volume Service (HVS-1) enabled as that does need more signal (perhaps 80 cm in Austria?).

But as Gerard notes, it may just be getting that received data path correct.

73,

Re: file problem

GERARD BOON
 

Dear Heinz,  

You may have a problem with the location of your received files. Looking at your screenshot of your MSGDataManager it states: C:\EUMETCast\received. Mine is C:\EUMETCast\received\bas.

You should try clicking the box prüfen to check if your files are in the right place, if this finds no files then try adding \bas and check again

Of course it depends on your individual installation but if you used the standard install offered by the Tellicast 2.14.4 that should work.

You can also check on your C: drive to see if you have 2 folders installed: EUMETCast and EUMETSAT , check the first folder which should have 3 subfolders: logs/received/tmp

My received folder has 2 subfolders bas and has-1 because I take both the basic and the high volume service. I am hoping you will at least have bas.

The bas folder on a standard install has a lot of subfolders! Just to get started you will need to ensure that MSGDataManager checks this bas folder as described above.

Hope this helps you

Gerard

Re: EARS-VIIRS NOAA-20

Roby
 

Hi Ernst, thanks for help.
I checked the license in Eumetsat, and I realized that I only enabled RDS-EARS-AVHRR and not RDS-EARS-VIIRS.
I requested to be enabled today.
 
thanks again for the help. Happy Easter

Re: EARS-VIIRS NOAA-20

Ernst Lobsiger
 

Hi Roberto

The data of Suomi_NPP satellite are now on HVS-1 channel E1H-RDS-1.
The new data of NOAA-20 arrive now on Basic Service channel NPP-2.
Both satellites carry the VIIRS instrument. On EUMETCast you get
M-Bands (SVM..) and DNB-Band (SVDNB..) in two separate file types.

Hope that helps
Ernst
