Dump978 stats.json

Hi All

Perhaps an easy question but I couldn’t seem to find a reason why dump978-fa doesn’t have a stats.json file like dump1090-fa does. In this case I’m using the FA piaware 3.7.x install for stretch/buster, not the FA image.


dump1090-fa install (from /run/dump1090-fa )

-rw-r–r-- 1 dump1090 nogroup 90 Jun 11 14:27 receiver.json
-rw-r–r-- 1 dump1090 nogroup 3718 Jul 22 07:28 stats.json
-rw-r–r-- 1 dump1090 nogroup 43201 Jul 22 07:28 aircraft.json

dump978-fa install (from /run/skyview978)

-rw-r–r-- 1 skyview nogroup 116 Jun 18 18:10 receiver.json
-rw-r–r-- 1 skyview nogroup 53 Jul 22 07:31 aircraft.json


dump978 doesn’t currently generate any stats.

Thank you. I figured that was the most obvious answer but wanted to make sure. Is there plans to include stats in the future?

It’d be nice to have, yeah.

The backend code is complete. We’re working on updating the front end now.

That’s for displaying UAT stats on the web page yes?

That was not the question i believe :wink:

Ha! Yes, we will be displaying UAT numbers on the stats web page.

Sorry if there was any confusion. I’d just been discussing that project with someone here when I saw this thread.

Well at least an overall message count is included in aircraft.json.

And you can create some statistics by parsing the aircraft.json regularly.

Yep - I think I may start parsing that for now into graphite/grafana. Most of my scripts curl stats.json on each node for 1090 traffic – so having similar stats for 978 traffic would be great. Now that I have a working 978 antenna … I actually have traffic :slight_smile:

Look in

I symlink them into one of the web directories so I can access them from other hosts.
