Npstats project

Npstats is a system for monitoring the Noaaport signal on a global scale, with respect to signal levels and quality, performance characteristics of the receivers, and software processing systems such as Nbsp and Npemwin.

The development discussions are carried out in Bitbucket, and the source code and binary packages for a selected set of supported platforms are available here.

Npstats and Nbsp

If Npstats is installed and running, then Nbsp can be configured to display the status of any of the devices that are being monitored by Npstats.

The devices show up by selecting the Devices item in the "Statistics" menu of the Nbsp web server. A list of devices is displayed (only one device is being monitored in this example), and selecting anyone of them displays the corresponding status.

Novramon

Novramon is simple text console program that monitors the status of the Novra S300 device. It has some useful additional functionality that is not inlcluded in Npstats, such as the ability to reset the device and log the data to a file. The binary packages for a selected set of supported platforms are available here, and the documentation is kept in Bitbucket.

Nbspadm project

Nbspupdate, part of the Nbspadm package, is a tool for upgrading Nbsp in semi-automatic fashion. It will check, download and install the Nbsp package from this site, if the latest version available is newer than the version installed in the host where nbspupdate is executed. It can also upgrade Npemwin (and even Nbspadm itself), and has several options that modify its default behaviour.

The Nbspadm package is available from the software section of this site, and usage instructions and examples are provided in the Nbsp wiki.

nbsp Virtual Appliance

The ``nbsp virtual appliance'' (nbspVA) is the name of a package for running nbsp in a Windows computer. This is different from the cygwin version of nbsp, which is no longer supported. In fact, nbsp running in this way is the exact same version that runs under Linux, specifically Debian.

Technically, it is a VirtualBox ``virtual machine'', using Ubuntu as the guest OS. However, rather than being a general purpose virtual machine, it is a specially configured installation of Ubuntu together with all the packages required to run nbsp already installed and configured. The entire nbspVA package can run in a windows computer as another program, with exactly the same features of the nbsp package that runs in a Linux or FreeBSD computer. Other applications such as grlevel3 and Digital Atmosphere, running on the same or a different computer, can be configured to connect nbspVA in exactly the same way as explained in the DA and grlevel3 section elsewhere in this manual.

The image and a README file can downloaded from noaaport.net. The README file has the information needed to start the machine, in particular the login credentials, how the installed packages nbsp, npemwin, gempak, grads are configured, and how to enable them.

Npemwin Virtual Appliance

The ``npemwin virtual appliance'' (npemwinVA) is the name of a package for running npemwin in a VirtualBox VM. It used to be a separate package but we now include it in the nbspVA package so that the user can enable Nbsp or Npemwin at will in the same VM.

It is a specially configured installation of Ubuntu, together with all the packages required to run npemwin, already installed and configured. The entire npemwinVA package can run in a Windows computer as another program, with exactly the same features of the npemwin package that runs in a FreeBSD or Linux computer. Other applications such as MetarWeather and Digital Atmosphere, running on the same or a different computer, can connect to npemwin in exactly the same way as explained elsewhere in the Npemwin manual. These screenshots illustrate the setup.

The image and a README file can downloaded from noaaport.net. The README file has the information needed to start the machine, in particular the login credentials, how the installed packages nbsp, npemwin, gempak, grads are configured, and how to enable them.

EmwinMobi

EmwinMobi is a simple Android application for monitoring the Npemwin servers, either the iEmwin.Net pool servers or your own. It is available from the download section. It is compatible with android version 4.0 upwards and it has been tested in 4.4.2.
