Added
“Delete” button to SPoT Admin portal, enabling admins to delete a venue.

·        
New
status light to represent time drift for access points page (see Limitations
below for more details). Status light will turn amber if AP time drifts by more
than +/- 5 seconds.

·        
New
Post-Engine API endpoint to retrieve reporting status of access points

·        
Radio
map processing to accept partially opaque children in background.

·        
Allow
creation of multiple zones with same prefix and numbers that correspond to its
floor number e.g. zone1, zone11, zone111.

 

b.     
Venue

·        
Rate
limit by first N number of calculated locations of MUs for a venue (off by
default; can be enabled on a per-venue basis).

·        
Heartbeat
log lines for pas_worker/s.

·        
Resolved
an issue with Voronoi Locator crashes due to corrupted Voronoi cells for some
tessellations in MongoDB.

·        
Collator
will survive intermittent MQTT broker disconnections and maintain persistent
registered topics subscriptions of MGRs and PARs across restarts.

 

c.      
vSPoT

·        
Added

6.      
Limitations and Caveats

a.      
System

·        
AP
status lights - The AP status updater process samples reports every minute, or
at the AP reporting interval setting, whichever is higher. This means that the
status lights will only be updated at the same rate reports are being sampled.

When time drift (amber light) is
shown for an access point, this means that the difference in time between a
report being sent out from the access point and the time the venue server
received the report is outside of the acceptable range. While this usually
means that the access point's time is not synchronized with a valid NTP server,
there are various other reasons why this might happen:

·   Network latency is high.

·   An AP is heavily loaded and its system time
drifts. This is because APs prioritize WiFi traffic over other functions.

·   The AP status updater process is running on
a system that is heavily loaded. This is because the system is not able to
process reports in a timely manner. There is a higher chance of this occurring
on an AIO or vSPoT deployment.

question, what is the difference between SPot and vSPoT? 
SPot -> on cloud server? 
vSPot -> on VM? 

is it the only difference?
