Syslog or similar

Hi - running PiAware 3.8.1 on RaspberryPi 2. Is there anyway to also send the ADS-B packets to a syslog host as they are picked up over the air?


What are you trying to achieve?

dump1090-fa is generating aircraft lists and there’s a script available on Github which send the messages to a MySQL DB

Yeah not sure what exactly you are looking for.

Try this command, maybe it’s what you’re looking for:

view1090-fa --no-interactive

Or the raw messages?

Thanks for the tip about the Github script, and the view1090-fa command. I’m really just looking to see the events in a syslog type log or database for curiosity - no planned project or anything. I’m a little bit of a data nerd.

There are millions of messages over the day, you will be overwhelmed :slight_smile:

Telnet into your Pi on port 30003

If that is the data you are looking for there are numerous ways to collect it.


Thanks everyone, that gets me started.
