I've had the honor of having one of the new JavAPRSSrvrs connecting up
here. Couple observations and maybe something that needs to be reacted
JavAPRSSrvr has an inactivity timer - default setting is 20 seconds and
is user definable.
JavAPRSSrvr will drop a connection if there's no traffic flowing and
re-establish it later on as needed. However, each of these
connect/disconnects generates a USERLIST message that's sent out to the
APRS-IS. With a low volume server and a 20 second 'time out', the sheer
volume of these messages is pretty impressive.
I've got 'broadcastJavaInfo off' in aprsd.conf - but these are still
getting out. (does that even apply? does it still work?)
Is there a way to kill these messages altogether? Does it exist and
isn't working or is something broken? Does this need to be added in?
Time to kill the USERLIST messages, I say.
