I'm currently running 6.0.1 on a Pi.

Tried to run 6.0.5 several times last night but had various issues including instances where:

a) I got warnings of possible data corruption if I didn't close DSLStats; and
b) messages that DSLStats was unable to check my validation key with MDWS;

I'm sure I also got a) when trying one of the versions between 6.0.1-5 but it all works fine on 6.0.1

This isn't normal behaviour. Several users are running v6.0.5 on a RPi and uploading to MDWS without problems.

Did you copy all the files from the archive when you installed v6.0.5? In particular there's a file called upload17.rpi in all the versions after v6.0.1, whereas v6.0.1 uses upload16.rpi. This file must be marked as executable.

Failing that, I would clear out all the DSLstats files (including the configuration files in /home/pi/.dslstats) and reinstall v6.0.5 from scratch. If that fails, then maybe you have a failing SD card - they don't last for ever, and DSLstats does make a lot of reads and writes while operating.

Yes, I did extract all the files so am not sure why I have been having problems with the last few beta versions. However, I've just tried 6.0.6 and it works perfectly :)

Is the combined.html page being generated correctly? I see stale data in the Stats summary and Connection stats...

I'll have a look at that tomorrow.

Further testing is showing it's something stupid that I've done. You can stop looking and please accept my humble apologies  :-[

Thank you for that. It all seemed to work fine here, so I was scratching my head a bit. :)

And the answer is, tick the tick-box for "combine selected items into one page"  :blush:

Have found my old RPi B+ is having issues with uploads to MDWS on 6.0.5 loads of gaps so went back to 5.9.5 and the gaps have started to disappear, probably time I updated this RPi hardware.

NewtronStar I don't have any problems with 6.0.6 on the RPi B+. Maybe it helps if you disable "Bitloading" and "SNR per tone" monitoring because these options cause a lot of values to be processed.

roseway does DSLstats use the downstream speed to detect resyncs? There are a lot of "connection restored" messages if sra changes the speed. It's not a big deal I'm just curious. I attached the corresponding screenshots.

@morphium: Yes, a change of connection speed is one of the ways DSLstats detects a resync. I'd never really considered SRA, because it isn't used in the UK. Actually this is an obsolete check now, because DSLstats has a proper direct check for a resync. I'll remove this bit of code in the next release.

Hi

I hope you don't mind, but I believe the issue of missing snr and/or bitloading etc is due to curl holding the file in use.

This means the file cannot be deleted/or written to.

However, the .txt file is updated

The easiest way to show this, is if you attempt to rename the locked file, it should refuse and in Windows, tells you curl is using the file. I guess in you may have to grep

Many thanks

John

Eric might it be possible to add a button to the event log screen saying 'Save & Clear Now'. My reasoning is that I was looking at it just now and got misled because I did not notice the event date being yesterday and though I had problems, I know it is clear when one looks properly but this might be a nice touch when someone has problems which are resolved but still show in the event log screen because there have been no new events.

Yes, that would be a simple addition.
