Even though I been uploading data for the past 3 years, I never experienced any issues until now so am technically still a novice in terms of programming the Raspberry Pi
Following a failed upgrade, I reverted to creating a new build with the latest Flightaware Image and a Raspberry Pi 2 (originally has a Paspberry Pi B+) but since the rebuild, i’ve had problems maintaining a stable setup.
The system starts up normally and I can see planes up to 200Nm away then somehow, the system stops detecting/sending data at irregular times
When I check my connection log, I get the following
[2020-05-17 13:23 BST] mlat-client(3401): Connection to localhost:30005 lost: [Errno 111] Connection refused
[2020-05-17 13:23 BST] mlat-client(3401): Reconnecting in 0.5 seconds
Sometimes when I restart Dump 1090 the system will work but sometimes I have to restart the Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately this only works for so long so I know there is an underlying issue.
Is it the Pi or the Flightaware dongle (Blue One) or have I somehow just got a duff Pi Build and need to start again.
Unfortunately I’m only in work one day a week (Pi situated in a school where i work) but have remote access to it.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. As I say, I’m a novice at this and lost 3 years stats as I didn’t realise after changing the Pi B+ to a 2, I could change the feeder code on my Pi2 to reflect statistics from Pi B+ - I unfortunately deleted the Pi B+ data before I realised this) Not that this has anything to do with my current situation but I’m learning!!
