• SBBSECHO Errors since 2/27 Build

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to Digital Man on Wed Mar 2 08:46:28 2022
    Rob, have you been getting any reports form other on errors on sbbsecho since the 2/27/22 nightly build. I deleted a log of the log before I realize a problem might exist, but here is yesterdays and part of todays error log.
    I've also included the sbbsecho log at the bottom, along with the even log. I'm going to download todays build to see if that helps later today.

    This is from the event log

    3/2 07:59:45a FIDOOUT Running native timed event: FIDOOUT
    3/2 07:59:45a FIDOOUT Executing external: c:\SBBS\exec\sbbsecho.exe -linf

    3/2 07:59:56a FIDOIN Timed event: FIDOIN returned 1

    This is from the sbbsecho log.

    2022-03-02 07:59:45 Mutex file exists (c:\SBBS\ctrl\sbbsecho.bsy): SBBSecho appears to be already running
    2022-03-02 07:59:45 SBBSecho (PID 5536) exiting with error level 1
    2022-03-02 07:59:56 Mutex file exists (c:\SBBS\ctrl\sbbsecho.bsy): SBBSecho appears to be already running
    2022-03-02 07:59:56 SBBSecho (PID 1164) exiting with error level 1

    I deleated the sbbsecho.bsy file several times, and it keeps coming back. Last night, I zipped up all the mail packets, and moved them out of the directory, and it successfuly ran for the next mail run, but it started again after that.

    This is the message inside the sbbsecho.bsy file.

    3884 SBBSecho 3.14-Win32 master/5b105677f Feb 27 2022 MSC 1929

    Just reporting, hopefully it goes away after I install the new build.

I'm going to download todays build to see if that helps later today.

    Also running one of those sbbsecho command-lines manually (from a command prompt) and then reporting the output would be helpful. Usually, a stale lock file indicates that it's crashing for some reason. No other reports of SBBSecho crashing lately.

    Just letting you know, as of build 3/2/22, the issue has cleared up, with no more problems.

    on another matter, is there a sbbsecho switch/option to delete/kill a bad packet, instead of just adding .bad extension to them. I looked in the wiki, but just don't see anything. Thanks in Advance.

    Okay, good to know.

    No, it's not option. Deleting inbound/*.bad would be a one-line event or script though, if that's what you want to do.

    You can use pktdump with the -split option on a bad packet and it'll
    extract any good messages. I'm sure it could be scripted but I do it
    manually when I spot them. At least you can salvage some messages from
    a packet.

    That worked fine, I was able to save alot of them with that method. What bugs me is I should not be getting that many bad packets from my hub. I get about 4 or 5 a day. I'm just going to make an event that will process the bad ones with pktdump, and delete when done. Thanks for the info.

    I used to get them often from ilink but not so much any more.
    Occasionally fsxnet. I think something was amiss somewhere that was
    fixed with an update.
