  • Fixed algorithm override not working

  • Fixed TcpTcTmDataLink detail

Changes in 5.7.12 (2023-03-21)

Changes in 5.7.10 (2023-03-14)

  • CFDP improvements: download via proxy request, file listing

  • Command Stack improvements: allow delay in between commands, allow specifying which acknowledgmetn to wait for

  • various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.7.9 (2022-10-28)

  • Added “cascading” feature: one Yamcs downstream server connects as a client to an upstream Yamcs server and receives TM packets, parameters, events and can send commands. It works best when the two servers share the same MDB. One common case in which the upstream server contains a partial command definition (perhaps only the headers) and the command from the downstream server is injected as the data part of that command, is not yet supported (but it will be soon!)

  • Improved the replay capabilities in yamcs-web

  • Various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.7.8 (2022-10-05)

  • Fix for CFDP service configured with enableAtStartup: false. Before the fix, the service was still processing incoming PDUs.

Changes in 5.7.7 (2022-10-03)

  • some fixes in the CFDP implementation:

    • when the FIN ACK is lost: the sender will keep sending FIN ACK for each FIN packet received (even if the transaction from the sender point of view is completed)

    • when the receiver is dead (or it does not acknowledge the EOF case). In that case Yamcs wanted to cancel the transaction but it got stuck

    • when the service is stopped, do not process incoming packets

  • add support for (variable length) array command arguments (only one-dimensional arrays supported for now)

  • various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.7.6 (2022-07-27)

  • added a low priority option when subscribing via websocket. This allows the yamcs-web to keep connected if there is high incoming data rate, at the expense of some of the messages not displayed.

  • bug fix parameter archive retrieval end conditions (sometimes it would send data that was past the stop time of the request)

  • allow java algorithms to specify their input list (if for any reason is not available in the xtce definition)

  • yamcs-web: Persist command stack options

  • Various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.7.5 (2022-07-24)

CFDP fixes

  • the pendingAfterCompletion parameter can be specified. previously it was not accepted in the configuration file.

  • fixed the number of pending downloads used to compare with the maxNumberDownloads parameter. Previously it would count also the already finished downloads and also the uploads.

Changes in 5.7.4 (2022-06-15)

  • added an option to the /api/stream-archive/{instance}:streamParameterValues (which extracts parameters using replays) to filter the packets based on the tm links
    on which they have been originally received. For example typically a different link is used to receive dump (recorded on-board) packets; This option can be used to extract parameters only from those. Or could be used to retrieve only from the realtime packets skipping the dump.

Changes in 5.7.3 (2022-06-09)

  • CCSDS TM/TC randomizer: fixed the interpretation of offset/length arguments (may affect custom encoders which want to randomize/derandomize only parts of the frames).

  • Allow custom (Java) algorithms to provide the list of output parameters at runtime (rather than in the MDB definition) such that those algorithms are not skipped at replay time if no output parameter has been declared in the MDB.

  • MDB: added internal support for ToString allowing to define how to display the values of parameters (will be implemented in the future in yamcs-web and Yamcs Studio)

  • yamcs-web:

    • Show favicon badge when there is an alarm

    • Add group action for queues

    • Show process tree on system page

    • Add Command detail page

Changes in 5.7.2 (2022-06-03)

  • yamcs-web: fix render issue with enumerated and command aggregate arguments

Changes in 5.7.1 (2022-05-30)

  • Allow 200 aliases in the yaml configuration files (the default was 50). The number can be configured via the java property org.yamcs.yaml.maxAliases

  • yamcs-web: Show detail field on links page

  • yamcs-client: fix generation of command source for command with binary arguments

  • fixed units in the data links synthesized parameters (e.g. /yamcs//tm_realtime/packetRate)

Changes in 5.7.0 (2022-05-28)

  • Renamed several java packages to avoid having the same package in different jars (this practice has been discouraged since the introduction of java modules) The “org.yamcs.xtceproc” and “org.yamcs.xtce” in yamcs-core has bene renamed to “org.yamcs.mdb”. May require update of custom plugins if they use classes from those packages.

  • Fixed a memory leak in relation to rocksdb snapshots (snapshots taken during parameter archive buildup were never released) and iterators (iterators were not closed when the replay was stopped before reaching the end)

  • Various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.6

Changes in 5.6.2 (2022-04-13)

  • Added support for Java 17 by using Nashorn javascript engine as a module

  • Removed support for Java 1.8 - 19

    • Alarm actions are now separate (one method per action)

    • Old-style websocket is now fully removed (use new-style)

    • Tags are gone (use timeline)

  • Various tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.5

Changes in 5.5.7 (2022-02-03)

  • restored backward compatibility for GenericPacketPreprocessor time decoding (in version 5.5.6 it was using the CUC decoder by default instead of using the FIXED decoder)

  • allow raw frame decoding using Reed-Solomon and de-randomization.

  • allow enabling errorDetection for uplink at virtual channel level.

  • fixed bug in FilePollingTmDataLink which was double counting the packets

Changes in 5.5.6 (2022-01-30)

  • Added support for XTCE transmission constraints and verifiers (using MatchCriteria, BooleanExpression…)

  • Added java-expression algorithms

  • Added types to system parameters

  • Fixed the realtime parameter archive - it can now be used as a preferred configuration for all systems receiving only realtime data (e.g. testing in an EGSE/Lab setup)

  • CCSDS Frame Processing: allow plugging user defined virtual channels handlers

  • Fixed the Parameter Archive to reconstruct aggregate and array parameters out of their components

  • minor tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.4

Changes in 5.4.5 (2021-04-05)

  • Fixed a bug causing the rejection of aggregates with enumeration members when used as command arguments

Changes in 5.4.4 (2021-04-02)

  • Fixed a bug in the TM partitioning flags causing the homepage of Yamcs to not display the packets beyond the top level.

  • Fixed a typo in reading the TCO configuration causing the defaultTof option to be ignored.

Changes in 5.4.3 (2021-03-16)

  • added some REST calls for getting more detailed information about parameter archive (can be used to investigate problems of missing data).

  • added possibility to trace algorithm executions.

  • minor tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.4.2 (2021-03-09)

  • Fixed the container name used as partition in the tm table. XtceTmRecorder will only use as partition (pname column in the tm table) the containers directly inherited from the root container defined on the stream on which the TM packet is received. Previously, if a container included another container inside, this last one would have been used as partition and also appear as the name of the packet in the home page of yamcs-web.

  • Added a maxValues parameter to the parameter range request

  • Added an API for instance reconfiguration - the instances created from templates can now be updated following template changes, or with modified template variables.

  • Allow aggregate values (not only members) to be used in Java algorithms (not yet available in Python or Javascript algorithms - these have to make reference to aggregate members)

  • minor tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.4.1 (2021-02-17)

  • CFDP: allow to configure the inactivityTimeout

  • changed yamcs systemd script to not depend on bash being the system shell

  • add support for web response filtering

  • added a minRange option to the parameter range request allowing to limit the number of ranges returned. This is done by aggregating data into multi value range.

Changes in 5.4.0 (2021-02-10)

  • Generalized file transfers: allow different than CFDP file transfer services to be implemented offering the same external API.

  • Added displayName/email attribute support to YamlAuthModule

  • Added queueing support to CFDP - files can be queued for later upload

  • Allow multi-purpose links (e.g. both TM and TC)

  • Added a perftest example useful to asses the performance of Yamcs

  • Added a bidirectional TCP TM/TC link

  • Save the link name in the tm table - this allows later to find out packets received via a certain link

  • The usage of time of flight estimatro (TOF) in the time correlation service (TOC) has been made optional (a config setting can be used to set the tof to a fixed value)

  • yamcs-web: show an view of the replication status

  • yamcs-web: moved the buckets out of the admin area

Changes in 5.3

Changes in 5.3.5 (2020-12-20)

  • Fixed a bug related to CFDP records storage in archive - the entity id was not saved for the incoming transfers causing a NPE when retrieving the list of transfers

  • Changed the incoming CFDP transfers to use the object name specified in the metadata rather than an artificially created name.

Changes in 5.3.4 (2020-12-17)

  • Fixed a bug in replication introduced in version 5.3.2 when allowing tuples to contain null values.

  • Improved XTCE support for command verifiers, demonstrated with the PUS simulator.

Changes in 5.3.3 (2020-12-14)

  • Added a simple PUS simulator to exemplify the usage of the time correlation (TCO) service with a free running on-board clock.

  • Save the OBT (value of the free running on-board clock) in the tm table.

  • TCP and UDP packet links populate the ERT (Earth Reception Time) field of the TM packets with the local mission time as this is required by the TCO service.

Changes in 5.3.2 (2020-12-11)

  • Reorganized the service creation and initialization such that data links can have access to services before they are initialized. Otherwise for example if a pre-processor wanted to use a time correlation service, it was not possible to check that the service exists when the pre-processor was created.

  • CfsPacketPreprocessor can optionally use the time correlation service to verify the time extracted from the packet.

  • Removed the clock name from the time correlation service, use the serviceName instead.

Changes in 5.3.1 (2020-12-08)

  • CFDP improvements:

    • allow multiple services and multiple local and remote entities per service

    • allow to define fault handlers (i.e. suspend a transaction in case of error so it can be resumed)

  • minor tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.3.0 (2020-11-25)

Version 5.3.0 released 25-Nov-2020

  • Added a bulk load option to be used by the command yamcs tables load. It does not update the histograms and also disables the RocksDB WAL (write ahead log) resulting in faster loads. the histograms have to be rebuilt manually after this.

  • Introduced a table format V3 which sorts properly the negative numbers and also the strings

    • most Yamcs tables use a timestamp as primary key and the timestamps before 1970 are represented as negative numbers and thus were not sorted properly

    • the old format V2 is still supported but new tables created with this Yamcs version will not be readable by a previous Yamcs vsersion.

  • Preview feature: secondary indices on tables; not used for regular Yamcs tables (tm, events, cmd_history, etc) but it will be used for the soon to come Yamcs timeline.

  • Preview feature: time correlation service; can be used to correlate a free running on-board clock with the ground time.

    • in case the on-board time is correlated using other means (e.g. on-board GPS receiver), the service can still be used for verifying the synchronization.

  • Yamcs-web:

    • show a preview of the evaluation of transmission constraints before sending a command

    • tables/streams are moved to admin section, and a web-based DB-shell is added

    • packets can now be individually exported or copied to clipboard

Changes in 5.2

Changes in 5.2.1 (2021-01-08)

YamlAuthModule: added a default role used when the user has no role assigned

Changes in 5.2.0 (2020-10-13)

  • allow all TM data links to update a simulation time if configured

  • allow the XTCE loader to load multiple files using a glob pattern or a list

  • added support for absolute time command arguments

  • added more options for time decoding of Cfs and Pus packet preprocessors.

Changes in 5.1.3 (2020-09-09)

  • minor tweaks and fixes

Changes in 5.1.2 (2020-08-28)

  • add support for variables when creating instances from templates

Changes in 5.1.1 (2020-08-02)

Fixed the GenericCommandPostprocessor to work with errorDetection: NONE (which is also the default if no errorDetection is specified)

Changes in 5.1.0 (2020-08-02)

  • moved the simulator into its own package out of the examples (such that the examples are independent of eachother)

  • changed the errorCorrection into errorDetection for TC frames (for consistency with TM links and also to documentation)

  • added a parameter on CfsCommandPostprocessor to allow swaping between checksum and command code (necessary on little endian systems with older versions of cFS)

  • added the possibility to specify patterns for the TC streams to define which command goes into which stream (before the way to do this was using some sql statements)

  • various bugfixes

Changes in 5.0

Changes in 5.0.0 (2020-07-03)

  • migrated the .def table definitions into the rocksdb. WARNING: the migration is automatic but once migrated the version 4 will not be able to read the data anymore! (the data in the database is not changed, if absolutely necessary we can make a version 4.10.x that can read it)

  • split Event and ParameterValue protobuf messages into internal and external. The internal messages use Yamcs timestamps whereas the external messages use protobuf timestamps.

  • changed the link configuration to be more consistent: removed the “args” parameter; all the properties should be moved one level up.

  • added a status bitfield on all packets where pre-processors can set specific flags such as: packet invalid local time used instead of spacecraft generation time extracted from packet do not archive

  • implemented a replication service

  • removed default yearly partitions for tm/pp data (can still be done by creating manually the tables)

  • added an option to send raw frame data over streams (such that they can be monitored externally or saved into tables)

  • CfsEventDecoder: added an option to specify byte endianess with default to big endian (used to be hardcoded to little endian) added also an option for the charset used to decode the text string, default to US-ASCII

  • removed yamcs-artemis (since it was used mainly for replication)

  • removed the IndexServer: The CCSDS completeness index functionality is provided now by the CcsdsTmIndex service. The histograms do not require definition of any extra service.

  • yamcs-xtce: all parameter and argument types need to be constructed through builders. all data encodings need to be constructed through builders. support the baseType XTCE property which allows a type to inherit properties from another type. AbsoluteTimeParameterType uses java Instant as initial value (rather than Yamcs times)

  • remove the yamcs-simulation rpm. Simulation is one of the examples along others.

  • updated RocksdDB to a newer version such that Yamcs can be run now on Windows 64bits and Linux ARM64 (e.g. Rasbperry Pi 4)

Changes in 4.10

Changes in 4.10.9 (2020-04-25)

  • reorganized the links by removing the DataLinkInitializer and creating a LinkManager that has more functionality, like for example being able to negatively acknowledge commands if all the TC links are disabled.

  • fixed the processing of XTCE absolute time parameters

Changes in 4.2

Changes in 4.2.2 (2018-04-17)

  • partially fixed the parameter archive for boolean parameters

Changes in 4.2.1 (2018-04-17)

  • send events when an algorithm execution fails

  • read commands from XTCE XML files compatible with CCSDS green book

Changes in 4.2.0 (2018-04-06)

  • various web improvements - alarm detail, plots improvement, event downloads…

  • added parameter ranges API

  • allow to filter stream data on protobuf message properties

  • better enforcements of privileges on table/stream downloads/uploads and other REST calls

Changes in 4.1

Changes in 4.1.2 (2018-03-14)

  • fixed bug in the parameter archive encoding of large integer numbers

  • fixed the handling of expiration of parameters when the processor is running with a simulated clock

  • Events significance: added the XTCE significance levels for Events produced from the MDB algorithms

Changes in 4.1.1 (2018-03-07)

  • added an alternative Parameter Cache that consumes less memory by using array of primitives to store parameter values

  • refurbished yamcs-web

  • support multiple parameter subscriptions via the websocket

  • serialized XTCEDB use now a filename which is a SHA-1 of the old filename (which is made of the list of individual components of the XtceDB). This avoids problems with too long filenames.

Changes in 4.0

Changes in 4.0.1 (2018-02-05)

  • fixed Artemis data links to acknowledge the messages (otherwise they are kept indefinitely on the server)

  • the parameter select dialog from the Archive Browser will show now also parameters that are not part of containers

Changes in 4.0.0 (2018-01-10)

  • fixed the version 6.0 in refmdb.xls and the changelog (it was mistakenly written as version 5.7 not matching the SpreadsheetLoader)

  • TcpTcDataLink: the configuration can be made in the service declaration in yamcs..yaml, not necessary to have the tcp.yaml anymore

  • changed algorithms to work as functions such that they can coexist in the same scriptEngine (to improve performance)

  • allow java-expressions to be used for command argument reverse calibrations (eng->raw value conversion)

  • Spreadsheet Loader: allow to better specify the encoding in the command arguments

  • Introduced tablespaces to

    • use less rocksdb databases for one yamcs instance

    • allow to share the same rocksdb databae for multiple instances (useful in case of short lived instances such as simulation/test sessions)

    • improve starting performance - no more need to scan all the databases at startup

  • renamed yprocessor.yaml to processor.yaml and replaced “tmProvider”, “commanReleaser”, “parameterProviders” with generic “services”

  • changed WebSocket parameter unsubscribe all to unsubscribe both the “all” subscription as well as the individual subscriptions (if any). Fixes issue #210 in github.

  • Introduced two components part of the TM Packet Data Link:

    • packet input stream - responsible for chopping up a stream into packets

    • packet preprocessor - responsible for extracting basic information (time, seq count) from a packet
