Hello SatNOGS team,
I’ve got 8500+ frames waiting to upload that are between 60 and 512 bytes in size so let’s round up 5 MBytes – Bobcat/Grifex and ELFIN observations pretty close to each other. Then there are about 8 OGG/PNG files that are backlogged waiting for the frames to finish uploading, totaling about 100 MBytes. So 105 MBytes in SatNOGS data total.
What’s happening is the 8500+ tiny frames/files (~ 5 MBytes total) are taking 2-3 hours to upload – meanwhile more and more observations/frames are being captured and are piling up behind it. Maybe 1 tiny frame/file every 3-5 seconds. A data traffic jam! (beep beep)
A 9600 baud modem (~ 960 bytes/sec) would be moving these frames faster.
Even with my upload bandwidth cap of 1.5 Mbit/sec all this data should easily upload in 15 to 20 minutes.
Am i bumping up against a SatNOGS workflow ceiling or do I need to pony up for better internet service to move 100 Mbytes of data in less than 3 hours?
Certainly willing to do the later but got to be something else coming into play here I think and hence the reason for this post. Any ideas?
Also used speedtest.net to various servers in the US and am maintaining my 1.5 Mbit/sec speeds across the board.
As always, looking forward to your collective insights on why these are taking so long to upload.
