NetMetr - spontaneous planning

Although I repeatedly turn off the NetMetr test plan and save it and then check it, I repeatedly find that the tests still run at one random time. It behaves the same way if I cancel the test plan in the configuration file




/etc/config/netmetr

config settings 'settings'
	option control_server 'control.netmetr.cz'
	option max_history_logs '50'
	option client 'HW-PROBE'
	option uuid '5d8b8a67-xxxx-yyyy-zzzz-123456789012'
	option autostart_delay '2724'
	option protocol_mode 'prefer_6'
	option autostart_enabled '0'
	option sync_code 'abcdefghijkl'

Just by randomly checking, I find that it’s constantly and repeatedly triggering

I found only one solution - to comment out line in /etc/cron.d/netmetr:

MAILTO=""
#00     *       *       *       *       root    netmetr --autostart --dwlhist --syslog &

However, this is completely unsystematic, and the cause of this behaviour is not identified - when the application changes its settings spontaneously. I haven’t yet tracked down when the problem starts … restarting the router isn’t it.

Rather, I’m wondering if this is a problem only with me, or if it occurs in general. NetMetr hasn’t been this bad before, it should be of interest to the developers in support…

I have a same issue on fresh install of 6.2.4
After running the netmetr once it started doing this even if config it was supposed to be disbled.

Turris MOX A+C, TurrisOS 6.2.4. For me, it works as expected.

With the difference that I just click on “Enable autostart” to turn it off and then just hit “Save”. I’m leaving out your step 1) when you change the schedule time for tests.
