I have an image I am experimenting with to try and get a better understanding of data transfer. I have a Raspian Stretch image with PiAware installed manually.
I think I have found out the following three main components;
- piaware runs as a service and appears to control everything
- dump1090-fa runs as a service and seems to decode tuner data and display it on Skyview
- mlat-client-fa deals with mlat and is run from /usr/lib/piaware/helpers
If I run sudo service piaware stop - skyview continues to display data on map but nothing gets sent to flightaware.
So, with piaware stopped but dump1090-fa still running how would I send data to, for example, adsbexchange? For this example I am not looking to submit to FA and ADSBx - just one. I know there are scripts available to make all this work but I am trying to get an understanding of what happens.
When I fully understand how it is transferred then I will utilise two feeds.
