PlaneFinder's coverage displays..


#1

I do like Planefinder’s coverage displays created by their stats pages.


#2

Nice coverage area!


#3

PlaneFinder’s new client is very lightweight and easy to install. Info is here: forum.planefinder.net/threads/ne … hread.253/

I’m running FlightAware, FR24 and PlaneFinder on a Pi 2 and CPU load is around .6.


#4

It’s much better than the Node-JS client they had before but it still wants too much CPU

(ignore the elapsed time colum, I’ve just started the pfclient anf fr24feed services … this is on a old PiB)

for context this is what Dump1090-mutability says is happening since it can affect the figures

I am running it on a Pi 2 and don’t see as many aircraft as you do.

It pretty quiet now, aircraft-wise - Sunday morning.
