Track the path of data through the Mesh


#1

Is there a way to get a trace pf the devices that the payload hits as it traverses through the mesh network?

In addition to my data payload, I’m looking for something like:

Xenon 43 > Xenon 32 > Xenon 3 > Gateway


#2

Sorry - no there isn’t. There isn’t a way to force a Xenon (any node) to stop being a repeater.

Why do you need to know this? Are you struggling with performance/latency of message?


#3

Oh no it was more curiosity.

I just ordered another 50 Xenons to deploy and was interested to see how they were actually operating.


#4

Out of curiosity, what ratio of endnodes to gateway are you deploying?

And in what sort of environment?


#5

So far 5:1, going to test 50+:1

Environment: multi-story buildings

I will be testing hundreds per gateway very soon. While the site says, 50:1, I’m going to push that to see how many the network can truly handle.

I understand that Particle are not recommending more than 10 right now - more development will get to 20-30
