Runtime notes

The gateway binary is designed to be completely self contained, and not to modify the filesystem in any way. 

After a successful start, the gateway process will daemonize and run in background.

In some cases, the binary might fail to start, the last message saying:

ERROR:Version of calibration firmware not expected, actual:[SOME VALUE] expected:[OTHER VALUE]
ERROR:lgw_start failed

You might be running an incompatible version of the binary

In this case, just restart or power-cycle the gateway and try again.
