DSLstats pre-release version 6.3.4
« on: March 27, 2018, 04:09:30 PM »

Changes since v6.3.1:
  • minimum value of FEC/min graph in logarithmic mode is now 0.1
  • ES/hour chart now covers two days
  • added feature to save data store files remotely (only the test works at present)
  • webserver and data store files are now saved directly in the selected locations
This is work in progress, and I would appreciate comments on the new features.

The third item is a stage on the way to uploading the data store files to a remote location of the user's choice. If you have FTP access to a server you can enter the details and click the Test button. DSLstats will attempt to upload two small files to the server, and will report success or failure.

Regarding the last item, when you first run this version it will convert any already existing configuration to the new style, so the data store and webserver should continue to work in the same way. After that, if you change the data store or webserver locations you will need to specify the full path (previously DSLstats appended 'DataStore' or 'webserver' to the path selected by the user).

Eric I downloaded and installed it OK, however it did mess up the location for my webserver files. I had it set to D:\xampp\htdocs\DSLStatsWeb\webserver but it cam up as D:\xampp\htdocs\DSLStatsWebwebserver (no \). Anyway corrected the file locations OK in the settings and now is using the locations I wanted. Shut it down in order to clean up directories and on restart it shows duplicate messages now. See attached png file. Otherwise all OK so far. Will test FTP later.

Downloaded and now currently executing. I am happy to confirm that the first bullet point of the changes is as expected.

I note that there is a missing '/' (equivalent to the missing '\' that Stuart has reported) for the webserver files.

For consistency, could the sub-directories by default be "DataStore", "Snapshots" and "Webserver"?

(Cosmetic.) Under the "Configuration ---> Snapshots" tab, could the first line read "Snapshots directory:" rather than the current "Snapshot directory:? (Plural rather then singular, for consistency under the configuration tab.)

I also had the issue of it deciding to use W:\DSLstatswebserver instead of W:\DSLstats\webserver

Downloaded to RPi Zero W and working well, using the default data store: /home/pi/.dslstats/Datastore

Bullet points 1 & 2 working as expected.

The Data Upload test to a NAS on the home LAN reports as successful, but I cannot see any files written there.
I have not attempted the webserver, because the CPU on this device is not really suited for it.

Thank you for the comments.

@Westie: The uploaded files are crc.html and ftc.html, chosen simply because they're small and present in every DSLstats installation. If they're really not there then the test isn't working quite right.

I have just tried the upload test again, but this time to a non-existent directory on the NAS, to see what errors might be reported. The Event Log reports:
Code: [Select]
27 Mar 2018 20:43:48  File ""crc.html" failed to upload. FTP upload aborted
Are the different number of double quotes before and after the file name significant?

V.6.3.4 running on my old RPi 1B and the 2 remote RPi Zero W's I look after, can only comment on bullet points 1 & 2 which are working fully to expectation.

One very minor issue I have noted is in Graphs/Sampling/Time per page, I am currently running @ 1 day, zero hours settings which is working exactly as it should, however, on RPi re-booting the hours setting always increments to "1" reflected on the graphs time axis as would be expected.
Have tried increasing the days setting beyond 1 (again with zero hours) but the hours will always increment to "1" on RPi reboot.

This was the same on the previous program revision, apologies, never remembered to submit report.

I know you have discussed the graphs Days/Hours settings in the previous V.6.3.1 thread but have not seen this particular anomaly reported to date.

Again, many thanks for your continuing development work on DSLStats, very much appreciated.

Just tested the ftp. Initially it said it worked but nothing uploaded.

I've worked out why the FTP uploads appear to fail: during testing I set it up to delete the files after uploading, and left the deletion code in the version I released. So if you got a "Success" result it really did work.

@Westie: the extra pair of inverted commas is just a mistake in constructing the error message. I'll fix it.

Well that explains it  ;)

Something I have noticed about the names of the files in the sub-directories of the DataStore directory . . .

[Duo2 DataStore]$ ls -1 2018-03-28
Bits-00-33-28.zip
Hlog-00-33-28.zip
QLN-00-33-28.zip
SNR-00-33-28.zip
Stats
[Duo2 DataStore]$


The files are currently named as "name-hour-minute-day_of_month.zip"

Could the naming be adjusted so that the slowest changing parameter is at the left and the fastest changing parameter is at the right, please? I.e. "name-day_of_month-hour-minute.zip"

You're right, it's not very logical. In fact, these files really don't need a 'day' reference at all because they're in daily folders anyway. So "name-hour-minute.zip" would suffice and would slightly reduce the cluttered appearance.
