Ok, some experiences to share...
First I tried to save my running dude setup (map, devices etc).
With ftp I could log into the CCR and found some Dude related files on the nand, but all small. And I found some much bigger files in the \disk1 (A usb stick installed by my assitent).
Anyway, I transfered everything from both the CCR hd as the usb stick to my PC with ftp program
Initially I was tempted to run a format on that "disk1" until I found out it was actually the usb stick!!! Better not!
So, to format the nand, only two options exist: By console or by netinstall...
Since console needs a laptop with serial connection (who has that nowadays???) I went for the netinstall.
Entered, selected the full ros package and uploaded and reboot.
After that put IP on one of the ports, connected to our network again and by normal winbox transfer uploaded the same version (6.35rc.31) of Dude.
Reboot and tried to log into the dude with the client. No luck.... until I found I had to start the dude in cli first.......
Logged in again, now with success, and found the Dude running, but without any of my data. Virgin state.
Checked the if the mib file is around, it is. (It all started because this file was gone on the previous install..)
So, obvious my data is in the db file I copier previously to my PC. Copied back with an error as result. Well, the db file was bigger than the memory available of my CCR!
Hence it had to go to the usb stick, wher in fact I found the original was still around. (Obvious!
So, how to get Dude work with that data? Well, in terminal of the CCR I can point to where Dude has to store its data.
So that worked. Had to do a reboot and then Dude loaded again, this time with my map, devices etc.
So am I happy now? Not really!
Problem of slow grahs and at times 'hanging' of the Dude is still there...
And a graph we run on the data throughput on our main link still shows regurlar data peaks. We have a 300Mb symettric connection but the graphs shows roughtly every 70 minutes a traffic burst up to 500, 600mbps, even saw one Gigabit burst!
Cant be real! At teh same time a 'real time' graph of the interface of the CCR doesn't shown any abnormality....
Show your appreciation of this post by giving me Karma! Thanks.
