Kismet best settings for minimum memory load? (Raspberry Pi)

The gear needed for wardriving

Hello,

Kismet (2019 version) logs a LOT, so with 1gb ram im only able to capture ~12k devices before memory is out.

But then when converting to WiGLE csv a lot of packets are dropped, either due to missing GPS or as its only a Device but no Hotspot.

So, with what settings can the memory footprint be reduced, while still having all infos for WiGLE?

Currently im having this filter in my kismet_site.conf:

Updated:
track_device_seenby_views=false
track_device_phy_views=false
manuf_lookup=false
track_device_rrds=false
kis_log_packets=false
kis_log_messages=false


But warning, this breaks the build in kismetdd_to_wigle tool! This script will work: https://github.com/designer2k2/warpi/bl ... towigle.py
with the update to stop packet/message logging, and turning off the manufacture lookup i was able to get 10k devices with only 60% memory consumed :D

the .kismet then only contains the devices, im not shure if there is anything else that can be taken off without breaking it.
