PiAware running, dump1090 stopped

Folks,

This is curiosity rather than a problem at this stage.

My Pi Zero has been feeding PiAware and also FR24 for quite some time, today an email advised of no data being sent.

Pi still running, able to SSH in, PiAware service still running but appears dump1090 had stopped.

Small section of PiAware log file follows;

Any obvious reason connection would be refused?

It’s in your title, dump1090-fa isn’t running.

Perhaps I could have worded the last sentence of my post better and ask if any obvious reason dump1090, which had been running fine for months, would stop running?

I know if router shuts down for some reason Pi reconnects when network available again, thought dump1090 responded in a similar way.

Bookmarked the link you sent, shall try that is any other issues.

Geoff

Hardware problems is the obvious reason - dying power supply or dongle.
Look at the dump1090 logs; it’s not possible to diagnose much from a vague “dump1090 stopped” description.

That is why I posted a partial log file. I couldn’t see anything obvious as to why it failed.

Been working fine since restart though albeit not too many aircraft.

Geoff

Wrong log though - it’s the dump1090 log messages that are interesting if it is dump1090 that is having problems.

Ah right, good point.
