Since the last couple of days, https://data.vatsim.net/vatsim-servers.txt stopped feeding vatsim’s individual servers IPs. We were using the IPs in our VA to check the online status of our pilots. Is this a permanent change and if yes, are there any other means to retrieve those IPs?
Yes this is permanent, I am curious how those IP’s were providing you any insight into your pilot activity?
The V3 JSON feed does include a server’s list in it, but that shouldn’t be of any use really. The datafeed is what tools like vatspy or simaware use to track online clients, so you should only need to scrape the clients from that JSON response.
