Separate folder for realtime files

Postby lucastro74 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:08 am

Hi,
is it possible to specify a different location for the creation of realtime files (realtime.txt - wxnow.txt)?

Now they are in the the main Cumulus folder but i'd like to move them in a ram disk on my raspberry as i burned 2 sd cards, i think for continuos writing of these small files.8i moved it
Even the web folder will be ok as i'm already using it on the ram disk

Thank you,
Luca

I answer to myself :clap:

You can bypass the problem with symlinks for the files.

Just move the needed files to ramdisk and then create the symlinks in Cumulus MX folder:

ln -s ramdisk-path/realtime.txt
ln -s ramdisk-path/wxnow.txt

no problems on reboot, the symlinks are persistent and the new realtime files are created on the ramdisk.
