Airtime Troubleshoot for Dummies (like me)- Basic things you can do to see under the hood
  • Step 1 -These are basic steps to see what is working or not

    at the prompt type

    airtime-check-system

    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-liquidsoap     status

    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-playout        status

    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-media-monitor  status

    sudo invoke-rc.d apache2                status

    sudo invoke-rc.d rabbitmq-server        status



    Step 2 - get some logs which can be overwhelming  but you can look at what is going on in real time by doing

     
    sudo airtime-log -t liquidsoap      to see whats happening  to liquidsoap in realtime                               Ctrl+C  to quit

    you can look at other realtime effects by substituting liquidsoap above for [media-monitor|recorder|playout|liquidsoap|web]


    Step 3 -get more help or dump your logs and submit to the person assisting


    sudo airtime-log --help              to see the various options


    sudo airtime-log -v media-monitor    to see whats happening in your media                                          use q to quit

    sudo airtime-log -d                  will dump all the logs( note this also includes passwords etc) good for major troubleshooting   use q to quit




    Other options available.

    Usage: airtime-log [options]
    --view|-v <string>     Display log file
            media-monitor|recorder|playout|liquidsoap|web
    --dump|-d [ <string> ] Collect all log files and compress into a tarball
            media-monitor|recorder|playout|liquidsoap|web (ALL by default)
    --tail|-t [ <string> ] View any new entries appended to log files in real-time
            media-monitor|recorder|playout|liquidsoap|web (ALL by default)




    If your Airtime server is not working as expected, individual components of the system can be started, stopped, restarted or checked in the server console using the invoke-rc.d command:

    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-liquidsoap     start|stop|restart|status
    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-playout        start|stop|restart|status
    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-media-monitor  start|stop|restart|status
    sudo invoke-rc.d apache2                start|stop|restart|status
    sudo invoke-rc.d rabbitmq-server        start|stop|restart|status

    For example, to restart the Airtime playout engine, you could enter the command:

    sudo invoke-rc.d airtime-playout restart

    The server should respond:

    Restarting Airtime Playout: Done.
