SatNOGS client v0.6.2 is released!

SatNOGS client v0.6.2 is released!

Notable changes since v0.6.1

  • Fixed data file renaming when connections timeout

@fredy Couldn’t reply on the 0.6.1 release thread anymore, but have just updated my installation. I will let it run for a few days and give feedback regarding the /tmp issue. Thanks!

Anything else fixed on this release? (So I know if I should try this then reapply all the other fixes I have on my current set up)

It is a really important fix!
You won’t get any datafiles if the metadata put request fails in any kind.


Sadly I’m still experiencing the same problem, my /tmp/.satnogs/data filled up again and the software stopped working.

I’m not convinced its a permissions issue because the client can create and delete the .png and .ogg files ?

This is on the latest version.

I should have first asked this but I didn’t… Do you have disable the flag to remove the raw files of an observation? In satnogs-setup, it is in “Advanced settings” -> “Remove raw files” and it should have “Yes” value in order to remove the waterfall .dat files.

Oh, that’s new.
For interest sake, I checked mine and all are Yes.

Configuration list on port 5000 shows this too.

Actually, “Yes” is the default if the option is not specified.

In satnogs-setup, it is in “Advanced settings” -> “Remove raw files” and it should have “Yes” value in order to remove the waterfall .dat files.

My VHF GS failed so took the opportunity to do a satnogs-setup, just to freshen any files. All seemed ok until very quickly it was Offline again :frowning: Connectivity wasn’t an issue.
df showed 100% disk usage and /tmp/.satnogs/data/ was full of .dat files. Weird as this hasn’t happened for a very long time now.
Checked advanced config and SATNOGS_REMOVE_RAW_FILES was False. Somehow when I ran satnogs-setup, it was changed from True to False. Resetting back to True and all is ok :slight_smile:
I never usually check the values as they never change, except this time…
