    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for letting us know about this. I'll try to look into this issue this weekend and see if I can figure out what is going on.

    Thanks!
    -Matt

    It is now working, we used an Alien reader. I don't explicitly create readzones but for the subscribe method I just pass an empty HashMap instance which means it subscribes to all and any readzones. We noticed that the rssi is always positive for the Alien reader. For LLRP we see about the same magnitude of rssi but negative values, so we are wondering if perhaps Rifidi expects the absolute value of the rssi. We still cannot get the RSSI Monitoring Service working with an LLRP reader, only with Alien.

    Thanks for the information. What is your dev setup? Windows or Ubuntu? 64-bit? Java version? I see Rssi values when I look at the current tags output in the Dashboard, so I assume Rssi is being sent by the LLRP reader.

    I just gave it a try now, and readzones work the same for me in 3.7 as they did in 3.3.

    I avoided making any changes to the sever beyond the minimum required for the app to run (Copied my app to the applications directory, changed default.ini to launch the app, copied test reader XML to config directory, and pointed rifidiserver.ini at the test XML). Otherwise, it was a vanilla install using the installer direct from SourceForge. I used a single reader, an Alien 9650, with two antennas split between two readzones. Here is part of my log (don't mind my test readzone names):

    CODE:

    15:45:55,522  INFO org.rifidi.edge.sensors.sessions.AbstractServerSocketSensorSession:142 - Accepted client at /192.168.100.5115:46:03,193  INFO org.rifidi.app.pharma.PharmaApp:158 - defaultRegEx: ^((?!DiabolikEmission|DiabolikEmission).)*$15:46:03,195  INFO org.rifidi.app.pharma.PharmaApp:159 - The following 3 readzones have been created: [DIABOLIK-ZONE, DIVINE-ZONE, DefaultZone]15:46:24,442  INFO org.rifidi.app.pharma.PharmaSubscriber:338 - Web services disabled, changing readzone for Tag: 10011111111111111111111111111111, ReadZone: DIABOLIK-ZONE, Antenna: 0, AvgRSSI 109.0, TagCount: 5.015:46:59,441  INFO org.rifidi.app.pharma.PharmaSubscriber:338 - Web services disabled, changing readzone for Tag: 10011111111111111111111111111111, ReadZone: DIVINE-ZONE, Antenna: 1, AvgRSSI 111.8, TagCount: 5.0
    This is another really easy item, but have you confirmed your reader is sending the RSSI to the server? I have all Alien readers, and my taglists look like this:

    CODE:

    TagListFormat = CustomTagListCustomFormat = Tag:%i, Disc:%d %T, Last:%d %T, Count:%r, Ant:%a, Proto:%p, Rssi:%m
    At the very least, I can offer that the RSSI Monitoring Service itself probably isn't your problem.

    I have tried the reader using no Rifidi apps and I get current tags showing. Then I used the HelloWorld app and I see Arrivals and Departures of the tags used. So all seems to work but only the RSSI Monitoring Service is doing nothing. I am wondering if you were to move up to Ver. 3.7.0 if yours will still work. My team could not get the RSSI Monitoring Service to work in Ver. 3.6.0 either, always using Esper 5.3.0.
