wsprdaemon tmp file questions

Yes, those are the cached spots from when your Pi couldn't reach wsprnet.org
One WD has reconnected WD will upload in batches of up to 1000 the oldest cached spots until it catches up with real time.
In WD 3.0 I have fixed and enhanced that cache upload service and also made it easier to view the operation of that upload service.

Hi Rob,
 
Once again, I notice spots are not showing up.  I think it is because a network cable came loose some weeks ago :-/  I think it is fixed and I think in a few hours I will start seeing spots and I think the system right now is uploading a rather large backlog...
 
There are a lot of files in ~/wsprdaemon/uploads.d/ which look like "K8NVH_211019_2159_03.tbz" .  Are these temporary files which will be removed at some point?  Or is it something I should monitor so they do not use up all of the disk space?
 
Thanks!

Hi Chris,

How nice to hear from you.  I have finally resumed work on WD version 3.0 after being interrupted by a house move last February.

LX1DQ experienced the same problem as you, and your problem is probably the same as his: SIGNAL_LEVEL_UPLOAD_ID cannot contain a '/'

So change your SIGNAL_LEVEL_UPLOAD_ID to "K8NVH_X" and you should experience no file system overflows.

If you also add:  SIGNAL_LEVEL_UPLOAD="yes"  you will be able to use the excellent Grafana tools at wspr.live to disp your noise ands spots history and much more.

I have cc'd this to the wsprdemon group so others who encounter it might find this fix.

73,

Rob

Hi Rob,

It has been a long time since I last wrote with an issue, I hope all is going well and you are not yet tired of hearing from me :-)  

Some months ago, my wsprdaemon stopped uploading.  I had just installed a new firewall and it took some days for my network to stabilize, so I did not try to fix it quickly.  Today I finally dealt with it.  wsprdaemon is again running and presumably uploading things.

However...

I found the problem was not internet access but, rather, the file system was full.  I removed ./uploads.d/wsprdaemon.d/noise.d and that provided enough space to git pull the latest version and then wsprdaemon -a to make it all run.

But the directories ./uploads.d/wsprdaemon.d/noise.d, ./uploads.d/wsprdaemon.d/spots.d, and ./uploads.d/wsprnet.d/spots.d are growing [albeit slowly], not shrinking.  So whatever the problem was, it is still happening.  Any suggestions  as to where I should look to fix this?

Here is the output from du, when run in the ~/wsprdaemon directory:

Any suggestions?
