DSLstats pre-release version 6.5.6
« on: May 21, 2018, 10:53:51 AM »

The main change in this version is that SFTP uploads are now working. An external program (curl) is used for this. Linux and Raspberry Pi users must install curl on their systems for this to work. This needs to be built with SSH support, and it's assumed that this will be the case with most modern Linux systems. An appropriate version of curl is included in the Windows version, and all the files in the archive should be copied to their destination.

Full list of changes since v6.5.2:
  • SFTP upload now works properly on all supported platforms
  • uploading is disabled after four upload/login failures in succession
  • time/day stamps of data store files are now tied to the start of processing after collecting the data from the modem
  • the time between successive webserver uploads can be adjusted between 1 and 60 minutes

Running here OK although only using plain FTP currently.

@roseway:
Eric, many thanks for your latest program revision and hard work on the project, very much appreciated.

Ref. installing "curl" on RPi's:
Currently running a RPi 3B+ with Raspbian Stretch on my home system, tried to install curl by the simple method:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php5-curl  (errors produced, would not install)

Googled RPi support forums and this was suggested:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev  (this installed without errors)

Tried the same "curl" install process on one of my remote RPi Zero W's still running Raspbian Jessie:
Both "curl" install options worked without any errors, installed the later "libcurl4" last so presume it will be active.

Unfortunately, I still have the same issue with WS Upload to my LAN FTP server on my Win 8.1 desktop PC, all permutations of FTP, Upload URL & Upload Dir still produce a test failure although the previously reported program "lock up" when using PC IP address has now been cured.

Otherwise the program revision is up and running on all my RPi's with no noted anomalies to date.

@tiffy: To install curl, this is what you should do:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install curl

This installs curl and libcurl3. You don't need the other packages you mentioned.

Eric, I appear to have an issue with data upload, The stats.log is being uploaded into the data folder, i.e. "server/DSLstats_data" not "server/DSLstats_data/2018-05-21", are you aware of this?

Also I am seeing fec.html and crc.html in the DSLstats_data folder too...

OK Eric, even more simple and obvious !
Was not sure on the format so Googled and got the options quoted.
Just making the point that Raspbian Stretch and Jessie appeared to react differently to the first option.

Will try the obvious option you suggested on my second remote RPi Zero W which is not updated yet.

On the second point, those two files are uploaded when you press the Test button. I meant to change their names to test1 and test2 to make their function clear, but didn't get around to it.

On the first point, I didn't specifically test the data store uploads this time because I didn't think the behaviour had changed in this version, but it looks as though I was wrong. I'll look into this and report back.

Yes the FTP of stats.log goes to the datastore directory not the daily directory as it used to, however the local file is correctly in the datastore directory in a daily directory.

You're just trying to confuse me.. :)

Cool. I think Ned has PM'd you with more info so I know your on the case.

Special thanks from me to Eric on the continued work he is putting into dslstats.

The SFTP support significantly lowers resource usage on both client side and server side for uploads vs standard FTP as well as speeding it up, so this will help greatly when we get a new centralised service up and running.

Concerning the Data Store upload issue, I've located the cause and fixed it for the next release.

I found but after  one upload using SFTP , DSLstats hung, needing a forced restart. Then I found all the SFTP settings were blank, I've tried twice with the same results

However Iíve just realised my hosting needs FTPS I assume thatís not included. I can connect and upload using P21 and the middle option, but as above crashes after one upload.

This one crashes out with the error "" is an invalid integer, looks like that's been there since build 6.5.2

I believe you narrowed that down to pbparams and the figures I see on 6.5 using a G.fast connection are here
