Help on Log errors

I’ve got a Raspberry Pi 3B with a current NOOBS OS, a current PiAware 3.5, and a current FR24.
PiAware and FR24 appear to be feeding Ok - except the on-line PiAware log shows an “Errno 111” for “Beast-format results connections”.

I don’t have a clue as to what that means or how to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated.

…also what is the complete terminal command line to access and edit the PiAware config file??

I’m including samples of the log with it’s errors and a copy of my PiAware config file.

Thanks.

That means that piaware is trying to connect to your local dump1090 to return mlat results, but dump1090 is not listening for them.
It’s harmless in terms of data feeding, though obviously it also means that mlat results will not be visible to you on your local map.

You need a dump1090 version that is mlat-aware to display the results. dump1090-fa and dump1090-mutability are mlat-aware.

Oh, I forgot to say that I also have 1090-mutability installed.

How do I get mutability-dump1090 to listen?
and what is the terminal command line to access and edit the piaware configuration file?

Thanks again

Hi all
Could you help me check logs 24hrs
just need to sus why my pi crashes once a day
am i pushing it to much or is my dns server doing it im not sure
pi4/2gb dietpi 64bit piaware /readsb

john

that would work only if the reason for a crash is documented in the logs right before the crash.
In many cases even the logging stopped and the next thing you see in the logs will be the reboot.

You can try it to find the position in the logs with uptime. Then scroll back to that time or a few minutes before.

And if DietPC is using log2ram technology to reduce writes, the chance is almost zero.
So you might need to change the logging method first

Oh dear i should have realised my mistake and checked that out first sorry bout that
my memory dont work well these days
and the obvious dont click in my head
i got it sorted and thankyou for your time
john
