Forever Trail

Post by skyward » Thu Jul 04, 2019 2:29 am

Our desktop started miss-behaving, and we're not sure if it was us or some bug... probably us. The behavior is as follows: every icao reg has every position ever recorded for that reg in one trail. It glues together coming and going over the airspace with odd U turns when the craft returns, even if the flights are days apart. IT seems the data is being stored in RAM as well, resulting in our virtual radar crashing every so often when virtual storage fills. Any ideas what we did or how to stop such behavior?

In TOOLS - OPTIONS - GENERAL - check your "remove from tracking" time settings this would be the most likely culprit. also check you haven't clicked is this "acars satcom feed" for given ADS-B receiver/s as JAERO "remove from tracking" is set for longer tracking time.

"Remove From Tracking" is set to 60 seconds.

"Acars Satcom Feed" is not checked.

"JAERO tracking timeout" is set to 1 minute, but not being used.

I believe the issue now is "Merged Feeds." I was merging several of our receivers for a unified view. But still doesn't explain why that view would have forever trails. Thoughts?

So, the issue is larger than merged feeds. It cleared up the problem only because it deleted the histories. but now that they are coming back, every trail for every aircraft shows a full history (previous flight hours earlier). Any more thoughts?
