My first problem is that FIDO-REQ is generating hundreds of dupes in
Aftershock and I have no idea why. Normally SBBSEcho handles dupes
perfectly, but not for that echo.
What is FIDO-REQ? Regular echo? I need to subscribe to it for problem investigation. I do not see this echo in Areafix of Ward. Will ask him
if it possible to make this echo available for me.
This is a bit complicated.
A node in Z1 is posting very big messages, over 400k. Those messages are tossing OK here but when they pass through some nodes that don't support messages over a certain size (64k, I think) they can get mangled. I see two mangled messages without correct header info or MSGID. For every good message I see here I see two mangled messages also. This issue will reveal itself differently at different nodes with different tossers.
If I read the situation correctly that nodes "New file Announcement" keeps growing every day because the already announced files are not being cleared so they get announced again day after day. The message size grows a little every day.
That node seems to be on auto pilot so that will keep on happening until he gets in front of his keyboard again.
His packets are valid, just quite large and growing every day.
