PRIORITY MANAGER V1.5 BY BUYUKBANG : Complete Tool to Power Up Azbox ( 28-06-2010 )
I decided not to release V1.4 which was only tested by a few people. I  left it as an internal release since I was not convinced with it because  of some bugs. I added new features to V1.5 and solved all bugs that I  found. This is the most stable and most powerful release of PRIORITY  MANAGER.
I hope you like it !


Note: Again I asked help from Opensat for this release and got nothing     :(    At first FatGiant said that they will help, but then again they don't  respond my PM's. I solved all problems with my self. Opensat really  needs a separate department to assist volunteer developers.


PLEASE READ "INSTALLATION" SECTION  BEFORE ASKING OR COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING!, THANKS....


DESCRIPTION:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This plugin is written by BUYUKBANG to improve total performance of  Azbox HD and add its
missing features! However its name remains as "Priority Manager", it now  makes more than
its name is offering. Here are the features of Priority Manager:
 
* Priority Manager automatically changes the priorities of the processes  to give optimal
performance for the menu being used. I tested all processes one by one,  decided their
effects on the performance of all modules and prepared a bug-free  (hopefully) and complex
logic to cover all possible usage cases.

* Priority Manager provides power saving! Smudger's power measurements  show that
Priority Manager decrease power consumption of the box from 25W to 23W  while watching an
SD channel and from 28W to 24W while watching an HD channel.

* Priority Manager provides password protected hidden channel list  feature. This will
cover missing function in Azbox and so that you will be able to prepare a  separate hidden
channel list which you want hide from people not knowing your password.  Default channel
list will be automatically replaced, so that any reboots / electricity  problems will not
reveal this second channel list.

* You can backup or restore /DISK2 and /PLUGINS folders with just a  simple button from
user interface.

* Priority Manager optionally takes backup of /DISK2 and /PLUGINS  folders in user defined
periods in background.

* Priority Manager upgrades Busybox from v1.0 to v1.16.

* Priority Manager enables Cron usage.

* Priority Manager can move plugins to internal HDD or USB storages.

* Priority Manager optionally automatically mounts CIF and NFS shares  when remote server
is online and automatically unmounts CIF AND NFS shares when remote  server is offline, so
protects file manager from freezes when remote goes offline after the  shares mounted.

* Priority Manager optionally creates swap file on your HDD/Flash disk  which will help
RAM by caching some part of the memory. Priority Manager not only  supports creating swap
file on internal HDD or usb HDD/Flash disk connected before Azbox boots,  it also supports
creating swap file on usb HDD/Flash disk connected after Azbox boots by  continuously
checking for new USB devices.

* Priority Manager can execute user selected programs after going into  SLEEP mode and
the kill them after return from SLEEP mode. By using this feature  running resource
intensive programs like transmission, aMule, azepgmgr in only SLEEP mode  will be
automatically managed without user intervention.

* Priority Manager increases internal storage (DOM) speed speed up to  20% by changing
its working parameters.

* Priority Manager provides "Deep Sleep Mode" which automatically kills  all unnecessary
applications and improve downloading speed when box goes to sleep mode.


* Up on deactivating or uninstalling Priority Manager, if related  features activated in
/DISK2/etc/PriorityManagerSettings.txt, Busybox downgrades to the  orginal version,swap file
and cron is deactivated all mounted shares are unmounted and plugins are  moved back to
original place. A complete rollback without reboot requirement is  performed.


SPECIAL THANKS TO:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Smudger for the all information, tests and power measurements, his tests  killed the bugs!

Kanber Kav for his permission for the usage and modification of his  Multicas Info plugin
and for the idea of increasing internal storage (DOM) speed!


Bug Reports
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you have any problems with Priority Manager, activate VERBOSE LOG  from user interface
and restart Priority Manager from  PLUGINS-->PriorityManager-->Activate/Reactivate.
This will create a verbose log file  /Download/PriorityManager_Verbose_Log . Collect data
with this option set to 1, without stopping, restarting, reactivating  and deactivating
Priority Manager, because all this operations will delete all old log  files. Then send an
e-mail to buyukbang @ gmail.com containing PriorityManager_Verbose_Log  with the approximate
time that problem occured.


HISTORY:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
v1.5
-----
NEW: User interface is completely reworked. Toggling all settings from  user interface
without any need for using TELNET / FTP is now possible. Added a button  to user interface
to review current settings.

NEW    :P    assword protected hidden channel list feature is added.

NEW: Backup /DISK2 and /PLUGINS folder from user interface is added.

NEW: Restore last backup of /DISK2 and /PLUGINS folders from user  interface is added.

FIX : Fixed some bugs in "Move Plugins" feature.

v1.4
-----
This was an internal release and only a few testers got this version.

NEW : Faster menu detection algorithm which dynamically manages sleep  time between loops.

NEW : Busybox can be upgraded automatically in boot from v1.0 to v1.16  with a simple
option in PriorityManagerSettings.txt (Thanks to Kanber Kav for  compiling Busybox!)

NEW : Full automated Cron setup. Cron provides a very flexible UNIX  scheduling mechanism.

NEW : Moving plugins to internal HDD or USB storages.

NEW : Scheduled backup of /DISK2 and /PLUGINS folders in user defined  periods.

NEW : Improved user interface on Plugins Menu. (Thanks to Kanber Kav for  the new version of
his Multimenu plugin!)

NEW : Improvement on automatic management of execution and killing  programs    :P    riority
Manager can start user selected programs when Azbox sleeps. When Azbox  wakes up there are
3 things that priority manager can do as an opposite action: kill it,  start another
script to stop it or simply do nothing which can be useful if it's a  auto-terminated
program or script.

NEW: Better and faster recording detection algorithm.

NEW: Mount checks simplified and tuned for better performance. Now you  can mount CIF/NFS
shares directly to HDD folders without using symlinks to DOM folders.

NEW: Improved swap file support. Creation of swap file is now retried  when "SWAP FILE
ACTIVATION FAILED" error occurs.

NEW : Up on deactivating or uninstalling Priority Manager, if related  features activated
in /DISK2/etc/PriorityManagerSettings.txt, Busybox downgrades to the  orginal version, swap
file and cron is deactivated,all mounted shares are unmounted and  plugins are moved back
to original place. So a complete rollback without reboot requirement is  performed.

NEW : Limiting file size of PriorityManager_Verbose_Log with the given  byte value.

FIX : HDD not sleeps when reserved programs are waiting to be recorded.

HISTORY:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
v1.7

-----
NEW: Added KILL_TV_EMU and WAIT_SECONDS_BEFORE_KILL options to PriorityManagerSettings.txt.
When KILL_TV_EMU is activated, all TV and EMU applications are automatically killed after
switching to movie, rss or browser menus. with this feature, your box will have more free
system resources (both processing power -CPU- and RAM) for playing higher bitrate movies
or browsing the internet.

NEW: Added "Movie & Browser" button to user interface. If you don't want to use "Auto
Kill TV-EMU" feature activated by KILL_TV_EMU option, you can use "Movie & Browser"
button to kill TV and EMU applications before watching a very high bit rate movie file.
TV and EMU applications will be automatically restarted after swithcing back to TV menu.

NEW: "Hidden Channel List" button now doesn't need to reboot the box.

NEW: "Default Channel List" added. So you don't need to reboot the box to activate default
channel list.

NEW: Azbox settings file (selene.conf) is included in both "Default Channel List" and
"Hidden Channel List" packs. So you can define and use different settings (ie. volume,
parental lock setting, last switched channel, etc..) for each channel lists.

NEW: OSCAM EMU prioritization. (Thanks to Alex-1 for the information!)

NEW: OpenVPN prioritization. (Thanks to banditus for the information!)

NEW    :D    ecreased CPU usage of PriorityManager.sh (Its priority is decreased and default
MINOR_SLEEP_TIME value is set to 3.)

FIX: HDD not sleeps when reserved programs are waiting to be recorded. Previous fix made
in v1.4 was not enogh. But this time the problem is completely fixed (Thanks to Alex-1
for the bug report and fix tests!)

PRIORITY MANAGER V1.8 BY BUYUKBANG



Release Log For [COLOR="Red"]v1.8[/COLOR]
----------------------
This version is developed and tested on the firmware 0.9.5020 by BuyukBang and it's also tested on the firmware 0.9.4890 by Gorsky.

NEW: Optimizations for TV channel browser, TV channel switch speed and recording.

NEW: Optimizations for server + client EMU configurations (e.g. oscam + mgcamd).

NEW: More DOM speed improvement with DOM_SPEED=1 setting.

NEW: Added LEFT_SHIFT, TOP_SHIFT and RATIO parameters to PriorityManagerSettings.txt. Now users that have problems with Priority Manager screen size on their TV's can easily adjust size with this setting file.

NEW: Added RUN_AFTER_RETURN_FROM_KILL option to PriorityManagerSettings.txt. Now you can
define your epg plugin script to be run when switching back to TV mode after TV and EMU
killed by KILL_TV_EMU option.

NEW: If you put your hosts file and/or .profile file under /DISK2, they'll be replaced
with the original files automatically by Priority Manager at the startup (Normally these
files are always restored by the firmware). So you can define your own host redirections
and profile settings (e.g. aliases).

NEW: Added support for automatically pausing OSCam DVB API when Azbox sleeps (OSCam works
as server mode only) and resuming it again when Azbox wakes up (OSCam works as client &
server mode). This provides more system resources for applications running while Azbox is
sleeping and also a small amount of power saving.
You can find more information about in below document ( search the word pauseoscam ):
http :// streamboard.gmc.to/svn/oscam/trunk/Distribution/doc/txt/oscam.conf.txt

NEW: Added "Mode" button to user interface.

NEW: Rearranged PriorityManagerSettings.txt.

FIX: Sometimes TV and EMU doesn't restart after switching back to TV mode when KILL_TV_EMU
option is activated.

FIX: After wakeup TV and EMU doesn't restart after switching back to TV mode when KILL_TV_EMU
option is activated.

FIX    :P    erformance fix for Cheops EMU.

INSTALLATION:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Extract PriorityManager.plugin and plugins.lst files from the archive file.

2. Copy PriorityManager.plugin and plugins.lst to USB or simply transfer them by FTP to
/tmp folder of your Azbox.

3. Enter Plugins menu, press Red Button on remote controller to add plugin. If you're
using USB select to install it from USB, or if you transferred files to /tmp folder
install it from tmp folder.

4. Check user defined parameters in /DISK2/etc/PriorityManagerSettings.txt and edit
parameters if you want, save the file.

5. Activate plugin from the plugins menu    :P    LUGINS-->PriorityManager-->Activate/Reactivate


IMPORTANT NOTES & PERFORMANCE TIPS:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- If you have any problem with Priority Manager screen size on your TV, adjust LEFT_SHIFT,
TOP_SHIFT and RATIO parameters in /DISK2/etc/PriorityManagerSettings.txt for your TV.

- For the best performance activating KILL_TV_EMU, DOM_SPEED, SWAPPER and UPGRADE_BUSYBOX
parameter in /DISK2/etc/PriorityManagerSettings.txt is highly recommended. These values
are disabled by default. You can find more detailed explanations about these parameters in
PriorityManagerSettings.txt.

- After the first run of the script standby.sh and wakeup.sh scripts will be created under
/DISK2/etc . These scripts will help to main script for the decision of the sleep mode by
creating and deleting a file ( /tmp/PriorityManager_Sleep ) If you have already standby.sh
and wakeup.sh in /DISK2/etc, they will be backed up by installation process in the same
directory. Then you may want to manually add your own commands to these scripts before
running Priority Manager.

- You need to disable Priority Manager and reboot before upgrading firmware from Settings
menu if you activated UPGRADE_BUSYBOX setting. There is no such a requirement for upgrading
from usb boot menu (patch.bin method).
