Hi everyone,

First of all I have to mention that I am still using the very first Ecosystem. (I don't know if that's relevant at all for the nginx server I address here).

I used to edit the standard oscilloscope app to accomodate that to my needs. Up to now it worked very fine for me but now I need 4 signal channels instead of the default 2.
I do know how to adapt my Firmware to get memory for four channels but then I fail when the data is transferred via nginx.
Obviously it's not sufficient to update the rp_osc_get_signal() in main.c
(Beside all relevant initialisations of the rp_osc_signal) I just extended the aforementioned function to this:

Code: Select all/*----------------------------------------------------------------------------------*/
int rp_osc_get_signals(float ***signals, int *sig_idx)
    float **s = *signals;
    if(rp_osc_signals_dirty == 0) {
        *sig_idx = rp_osc_sig_last_idx;
        return -1;

    memcpy(&s[0][0], &rp_osc_signals[0][0], sizeof(float)*SIGNAL_LENGTH);
    memcpy(&s[1][0], &rp_osc_signals[1][0], sizeof(float)*SIGNAL_LENGTH);
    memcpy(&s[2][0], &rp_osc_signals[2][0], sizeof(float)*SIGNAL_LENGTH);
    memcpy(&s[3][0], &rp_osc_signals[3][0], sizeof(float)*SIGNAL_LENGTH);

    *sig_idx = rp_osc_sig_last_idx;

    rp_osc_signals_dirty = 0;
    return 0;

Is the nginx server only designed to tranfer 2 channels?
What is it that I forget here?

Hope you guys can help. And thanx in advance.

I see three possibilities.

1) You can make your signal half size length. Then it is possible to use 4 signals.
2) To keep the same length, it is necessary change memory allocation and change hard coded constants in ... data_cmd.c a recompile. It probably break compatibility with others apps.
3) Use WebSocket interface - for future this is the best way, but you will need rewrite your app and web interface.

Thanx for your suggestions.

As halfen the signal size length is no sufficient option for me, I will have to touch the nginx files.
However, I don't know what I have to consider here and how to compile alltogether and which compile file is needed where.

On my SD-card, I found a file called "nginx" in the sbin directory. Is it that one I have to recompile?
Is there a guide available or could you give me some hints?
