I assume you gave everyone, full control of the directory?
JFTR: Rebooting did not help either, except that I had to alter the ethernet
interface number from 3 to 2. It was just an idea, but not the right one.

re defrag

duncan
 

Good idea Alan i think i will do that and see the results. I hope to go to a 2 pc system soon which will take the load off this one as i do all the usual browsing on this one as well so i must expect some loss of data but it just seemed strange that this only happened when i use the defrag program and of course the red T buisness as well .Thanks for your advice Best Regards Duncan.

Yes, that's why I said I usually reboot before settling on the interface numbers. Rebooting from cold give consistent values. You have me puzzled on the rateup.exe problem, though. I've simply not seen this on Win-7 systems.

Maybe a buggy version? I'll contact the author tomorrow.

MSG Animator

e.macgurk@...
 

Hi.

Just need to tie up a few loose ends on some of the software,

1st with the MSG animator how do i get the false colour as all my animations have been in black and white not sure how to activate the false colour option.

2nd when using METOP manager can you confirm the channals needed to activate in the recv channals-ini, i believe its EPS 10 and EPS 15, needed to get METOP and GAC, when i remove the hash for EPS 15 nouthing is being received when checked in active channals, all fine with EPS 10.

3rd what channals are needed for the AVHRR manager.

Thankyou.

Regareds.

It seems it took Tobi Oetiker, author of MRTG, two iterations to get this bug
fixed. No more error messages now with version 2.17.2, tomorrow I'll try to
achieve a contiuous operation.

So, after all, all is well.

Thanks to David and Giuseppe for their "quality time", as Tobi put it for the
time he invested in debugging.

Cheers,

I checked and it's 2.17.0 I have on the 64-bit Win-7 PC, so should I have seen the problem as well, Ulrich? I'm slightly surprised that a stable component which has been in so long (i.e. rateup.exe) needed modification - FYI mine is 2220.208 bytes, and dated: 09:15 (UTC) 2010-Dec-15, and there is no built-in version information (right-click, Properties, Details tab).

David

Amazes me that in /any/ operating system you can simply overwrite an existing file by doing the operation:

rename <my-new-file> <your-existing-file>

Oh, well!

Thanks for the info.

Eric,

As questions about my software, these would be more appropriately asked in the SatSignal Yahoo group:

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/SatSignal/

(1) To use the colour LUTs, be sure to select Video processing "None", and ensure that GeoSatSignal has been installed on run once on the same PC.

(2) Metop AVHRR is on [EPS-10], and NOAA-19 GAC on [EPS-15]. Make sure these are sent to separate directories in your recv-channels.ini. NOAA-GAC data may not be continuous - there should be a 30 minute gap or more between orbits.

(3) EARS data is on [EUMETSAT Data Channel 1]

David

David,
exactly my thoughts. I guess that that's to be understood as a macro
standing for something like

{
rename <existing> <sorted_out>
rename <new.tmp> <existing>
delete <sorted_out>
}

plus some if_error-workarounds...

It ran overnight here now in the daemonized version (of course I had yet to
try that last night), and the results look pretty much like the ones on your
collection page.

I am still not sure about the scaling of the dvb-traffic graph. It either looked
like a fine scottish golf green or like a corn field on dope. I scaled it to 48
Mbits/s now which seems to catch peaks and still shows enough detail. I
understand that all these values are average counts, so, the single fast burst
won't appear, right?

I'll be back with more questions, hopefully not about external bugs...

Cheers,
U.

It's a common version - runs as 32-bit under Win-7/64-bit

Well, what ever, it is (to me) at such a low level of code that I would not expect it to be changed. Oh, well, it's fixed now. And from your previous comment, it's possible that the problem only shows under Win32, and that the same code runs OK under Win-64.

It ran overnight here now in the daemonized version (of course I had yet to
try that last night), and the results look pretty much like the ones on your
collection page.

I am still not sure about the scaling of the dvb-traffic graph. It either looked

I let the traffic graphs auto-scale. The values on the day graph are totals over a 5-minute period, so they are really bytes from T to T+5, but displayed as bytes per second, i.e. bytes / 300 for the five-minute updates in the Day graph.

There is an option to show peak values, but I've not played with it. As MRTG only wakes up every five minutes to read the counters, I don't think that peaks could be shown within that period.

In case I didn't mention it, there is a difference between the DVB World USB box which records all the data on selected PIDs, and the SkyStar PCI card which only records data from channels enabled in recv-channels.ini.

David

I found out about it after re-enabling Ch.5

BTW, did you compose the collection using mrtg's indexmaker utility?
Anybody else?

Yes, it means that the graphs aren't strictly comparable between stations, but the lack of throughput /is/ immediately obvious.

I just edited HTML, and later PHP, to make my combined pages, if that's what you mean. View Source works in most browsers. If there's a specific page you want the source for, just ask.

I'd like to add a link to David's page - what would be the optimal link
