• HPT

    From Joseph Larsen@1:340/800 to All on Thursday, November 17, 2016 03:00:42
    Hi,

    For some reason, HPT only seems to toss packets right at the exact moment a
    new one is received. Anyone else experience this?

    Thanks,

    HPT tosses packets whenever you tell it to.

    If in your binkd config file you have an "exec" line that runs "hpt toss" when a packet or bundle arrives, binkd is the one running "hpt toss" for you, to make it instantaneous.

    If you don't want that to happen, simply comment out that line and run "hpt toss" from the command line whenever you wish to do so.

    Or am I completely misunderstanding you here?

    Nick

    No. My hpt is tossing mail at the exact moment when I tell it to do so. :)

    Hello Joseph,

    For some reason, HPT only seems to toss packets right at the exact moment a new one is received.

    When a mail packet/bundle is received or when a particular mail session is completed? Here mail is tossed when the mail session is completed regardless of
    how many mail files have been received using the EXEC command in BinkD's config file.

    Or... You could have HPT run at a time of your own choosing. Or, both if you prefer.

    Anyone else experience this?

    I would think we experience what we have our systems setup to do.

    Umm... Usually <g>

    The problem is that HPT is doing absolutely nothing. Even when I invoke it manually.

    Try this

    tparser -Dmodule=hpt /path/to/your/fidoconfig > hpt_report

    and then look into hpt_report whether there are any errors there.

    Without a new packet/bundle, what should hpt do?
    I don't understand your problem exactly.

    There are two ways for binkd process workflow control. External by flag file or
    directly by binkd with the exec command.

    The exec command allows via the "!" parameter the immediate start after receiving a file. That one was build in for request processors with SRIF standard but can be used for other things too.

    # Run an external program.
    # The "*S" macro in command line substed with S.R.I.F., see !SRIF.TXT
    # The "!" before program pathname means immediate program execution
    # after receiving the file.
    #exec "my-freq-processor.exe /options *S" *.req
    #exec "my-pkt-unpacker.exe /options *S" *.pkt

    If you use that exec for starting hpt, the ! may be what you are searching for.


    With the flagfile workflow control binkd creates flagfiles like

    # Create a flag file after receiving a file
    #
    flag .../flags/do.toss *.pkt *.mo? ...

    Those flagfiles are created at the end of the session:

    - 09:19 [16069] receiving NEW.mo0 (2378 byte(s), off 0)
    + 09:19 [16069] NEW.mo0 -> /inbound/NEW.mo0
    09:19 [16069] got *.mo?, delayed creating /flags/do.toss
    + 09:19 [16069] rcvd: NEW.mo0 (2378, 2378.00 CPS, nodeaka)
    + 09:19 [16069] done (from nodeaka, OK, S/R: 0/1 (0/2378 bytes))
    09:19 [16069] Creating /flags/do.toss

    Now this flagfile can be used to start the tosser by an external script or daemon tool. A script could be started by a cronjob every x minutes.

    It doesn't have to check for the do.toss flagfile if it forces the tosser run. Then you may have empty logfile entries and system load for nothing. If you check for the do.toss flagfile don't forget to let your script delete it.

    It's a good idea to have the script check for the mailers busy flagfiles and do
    not start the tosser if the mailer is still busy.

    I don't remember the exact names for the busy files, they end with *.bsy and will be deleted normally after the sessions ends. You may adjust your loglevel to find the correct filenames.

    # Path and name for the logfile, loglevel (1-10)
    #
    log /binkd.log
    loglevel 4
    #loglevel 10

    #
    # Uncomment it if you want binkd's log at your console
    #
    conlog 4
    #conlog 10

    What exactly do you mean "HPT is doing absolutely nothing"? If there is no packet or bundle in your inbound, invoking it manually will do just that.. nothing. Since there is no work to be done (ie: no packet or bundle in your inbound).

    Although, when you DO invoke it manually.. try tailing your hpt.log and see that it is indeed actually doing *something*, as in looking for a packet or bundle in your inbound, and then when it doesn't find anything there, it stops.

    Further than that, we need actual proof that it is doing "absolutely nothing" or some kind of error report from you.

    Hello Joseph,

    When a mail packet/bundle is received or when a particular mail session
    completed? Here mail is tossed when the mail session is completed regar
    how many mail files have been received using the EXEC command in BinkD
    config file.

    When a packet/bundle is received. Only then will it toss.

    I guess I don't see that as a problem. If a mail file hasn't been received then
    there isn't anything for HPT to toss.

    Here I have the following in my binkd.cfg to handle mail/file tossing:

    exec "/home/bbs/toss.sh" *.su? *.mo? *.tu? *.we? *.th? *.fr? *.sa? *.tic *.pkt

    So when file(s) are received that meet the above requirements then the script file "toss'sh" is called to process the received files. Here the script file isn't called until the BinkD session is completed. So, if multiple PKT files are received the script file is only called after the last PKT file has been successfully been received.

    It should be noted that Unix based OS's are case sensitive when it comes to filenames. So *.Pkt/*.pkt/*.PKT are all considered different files.

    Hello Joseph,

    HPT tosses packets whenever you tell it to.

    If in your binkd config file you have an "exec" line that runs "hpt tos

    The problem is that HPT is doing absolutely nothing. Even when I invoke it manually.

    When HPT is called (Invoked) are there received mail files in your inbound directory? If not, then there is nothing for HPT to do. It would seem that there would only be a problem IF you have received mail files in your specified
    inbound directory and then HPT is called and still does nothing.

    Again, unless there already exists a received *.pkt or mail bundle file in your
    configured inbound. Calling HPT toss will do nothing as there is no mail file to process

    IF however calling HPT does nothing when a mail file DOES exist then I would first make sure that HPT is looking in the same directory that BinkD is receiving the mail files to.

    Before I can go further more specific situation information will be required.

    Where is BinkD receiving the mail files to?

    Where is HPT looking to find the received mail files?

    Is this behavior only with secure or unsecure mail files or both?

    The logs show absolutely nothing. Where a supposed log entry is supposed to
    be shown, none is provided. Something else i've noticed, is that HPT (on the Linux side of things) doesn't toss every packet. Here's my tossing/scanning script:

    --snip---

    #!/bin/bash
    export SDL_VIDEODRIVER=dummy
    dosbox -noconsole -c "mount c /" -c "c:" -c "cd \\home\\imp\\imp\\" -c "imp-mail toss" -c "set FIDOCONFIG=c:\\home\\imp\\hpt\\config\\config" -c
    "hpt toss" -c "exit"
    dosbox -noconsole -c "mount c /" -c "c:" -c "cd \\home\\imp\\imp\\" -c "imp-mail scan" -c "set FIDOCONFIG=c:\\home\\imp\\hpt\\config\\config" -c
    "hpt pack scan" -c "exit"
    /home/imp/imp/pktdate -c /home/imp/hpt/pkt-out/*.pkt
    rm /home/imp/hpt/flags/hpt.lock
    cd /home/imp/hpt
    ./hpt toss
    ./hpt pack scan
    /usr/bin/cp /home/imp/imp/data/boards.dos /home/imp/imp/data/boards.dat dosbox.old -noconsole -c "mount c /" -c "c:" -c "path=c:\\home\\imp\\imp" -c "cd \\home\\imp\\imp\\" -c "imp-mail purge" -c "exit"
    /usr/bin/cp /home/imp/imp/data/boards.lin /home/imp/imp/data/boards.dat --snip---

    "dosbox" is a special DOSBox build with LFN capabilities (how I am able to
    toss packets in DOS). It allows for lowercase filenames.
    "dosbox.old" is vanilla DOSBox. The "-noconsole" flag
    is just that, it runs things from the console, without having to be in a GUI. The "boards.lin" file is the message bases file for use under Linux. The "boards.dos" is the message bases file for use with DOS. I have to copy it to "boards.dat" so it can properly be used with IMP-MAIL and HPT (DOS) to
    "purge" the packets after they've been tossed. And "boards.lin" is then
    copied to "boards.dat" afterwards, to return things to Linux. It may seem
    like a complicated way of doing things, but it works just fine, so far.

    The logs show absolutely nothing. Where a supposed log entry is supposed
    to
    be shown, none is provided.

    this sounds like you don't have any loglevels defined in your config or you have turned off most/all logging... i use the following at the top of my husky config file...

    ===== snip =====
    if "[module]"=="hpt"
    LogLevels 1234567890ACDEF
    ScreenLogLevels 1234567890ACDEF
    else
    LogLevels 1234567890ABCDEF
    ScreenLogLevels 1234567890ABCDEF
    endif

    LogFileDir /home/myuser/fido/log
    ===== snip =====

    basically it turns off level B for hpt but ensures that everything else is enabled for full logging... when hpt runs, there's a hpt.log file created and maintained in the ~/fido/log directory...

    Something else i've noticed, is that HPT (on the Linux side of things) doesn't toss every packet. Here's my tossing/scanning script:

    you really Really REALLY need to get that logging fixed... without the software
    (hpt) telling us anything, this is nothing more than a pure guessing game and swatting at noises in the dark... if you're running two instances of hpt, *nix and DOS, you need to have the logging enabled in both and you might want to have separate logging directories for them... they should be able to write to the same log file but better safe than sorry... we won't even mention end of line characters...

    I don't understand why on the DOS-side it isn't unpacking all of the bundles. Could it possibly be the "Command execute error"?

    Is the unzip executbale available and in the path?
    Does it understand the options that you have configured?
    Yes and yes.

    What happens if you run this manually:
    unzip -j -Loqq c:\home\imp\hpt\secure\38170505.tos -d c:\home\imp\hpt\pkt-in\

    Also check what error code 1 means.

    I'm not sure if hpt logs errors like directory not found.
    I think it's working, because imp-mail does it's job.
    If you are in doubt, add "dir >> files_seen.txt" lines into the script.

    "imp-mail toss"
    "hpt toss"

    You already did a tossing run before hpt.
    If imp-mail tossed everything, then there is nothing left for hpt to do.

    If imp-mail does not toss everything then it may be rename the untossed mails. *.sec or *.bad is used for security or other trouble pakets. Those trouble mail
    isn't touched by hpt because the sysop have to identify the problem first and manually rename it to *.pkt or whatever.

    Regards

    That is OK, it just says that the times are not corrected for the timezone ... Best is to set the TZ variable in DOS (according to your timezone)

    unzip: cannot find either c:/home/imp/hpt/secure/38f23c02.tos or c:/home/imp/hpt/secure/38f23c02.tos.zip

    If the packet is still in the directory, than this is your issue!
    Otherwise try it when you receive a new message (with the filename of the new message!)

    add "set TZ=est5edt" or whatever is proper for your timezone... est5edt is for new york time... add it the same way you add the fidoconfig setting...

    unzip: cannot find either c:/home/imp/hpt/secure/38f23c02.tos or c:/home/imp/hpt/secure/38f23c02.tos.zip

    dir /home/imp/hpt/secure/38f23c02*

    Because, my system supposedly sent out some dupes to AgoraNet, but they didn't show up on Accension's system. I was wondering if HPT could of been blocking those messages.

    i know that fastecho reports that exported messages may be dupes if they've been edited and sent again but i don't recall if HPT does that... it certainly has the ability to catch dupes inbound from other systems, though...

    the real question is if you have define dupe stuff for your echos in each line for each area that you carry...

    eg:
    EchoArea fidosoft.husky /home/myuser/fido/msgBase/fido/backbone/f/fidosoft.husky -d "General discussion on Husky Software" -b jam -a 1:3634/12.73 -g B -p 1100 -dupeCheck move -dupeHistory 1100 -sbkeepall 1:3634/12


    dupecheck and dupehistory being the two main keywords that i'm aware of...

    Yes, your dupes were caught here and not sent on to anyone else. HPTs dupe checker did it's job nicely.

    The only problem is that it's still (today) catching dupes with mangled subjects and no message body text.

    So I'm not sure what you "fixed" but it's apparantly not fixed just yet. :)
