Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Got an email this evening where the WU folks acknowledged the issue over the past week. The text of it is in http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=16481&start=15#p128386 I also noted that I've run 36+ hours with seeing this exception, and my data and webcam now look intact on the ...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

I've run about 36 hours without a burp in diags, or that I can see on WU, and at some point my webcam is back. ---------------------------------------------------------- A few hours ago I got this email...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Here's an interesting data point ... Not one of these exceptions were logged over the past 5 hours. Quite a contrast to seeing them with, perhaps, 80% of the attempts - once per minute.

This will make my diags log noticeably smaller!

Re: Discussion of Various Shared Sites for Observation Data Upload

You certainly make some valid points, and if negative, you offer a well-reasoned assessment in my opinion. I'm clearly much more more of an amateur than you and many others in this game. From a very quick skim of the "academic" paper I cited above, you might find it interesting. Data quali...

Discussion of Various Shared Sites for Observation Data Upload

Gentlefolk- As I start this thread, a lot of people are experiencing what I'd call fragility with Weather Underground. I've been posting to WU most of this decade. For me it begged the question of what are the pros and cons of the alternatives available. Cumulus MX natively supports a variety of opt...

Re: looks like wunderground have messed up again

I'm going to let the posting to WU go for a bit, but I'm actively looking at alternatives. I just added pwsweather last evening and it works well thus far. I noticed an odd exception in the diags log, incomplete-loking, which has become more frequent over time (http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic....

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Looks like https://www.pwsweather.com/obs/RADILLY.html is displaying data ... and hasn't missed a beat. I also turned on logging, which I hadn't fiddled with much. (Interesting stuff.) Didn't seem to need a restart. Paul, I came across WeatherObs when I worked my way through the list. Appreciate the...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Should diags show a periodic record for PWS Weather as it does for Weather Underground?

Thanks

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Certainly seemed easy enough to add PWS Weather. They say " Your data will appear with local forecasts on WeatherForYou.com within 48 hours of when data is first sent and is received by our servers. " So I may have to run for a while to see anything. Meanwhile WU almost seems to have gotte...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Hi Steve- In fact, for the past few hours or so I've been looking for WU alternatives - under the assumption that the primary issue is Weather Underground . :( Having started with Ambient Weather some years back with our first PWS, I've just stuck with it. But I'm thinking the time has come... OPEN ...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Steve commented above, and perhaps elsewhere. I got the impression the next logical step was to investigate the HTTP traffic - hence Fiddler. I've yet to get that working on my Pi. Apologies for the detail that follows, but I wanted to document what I'm seeing - which is a failure rate as high as 80...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

Somewhere in my notes I did note some odd gaps in the WU Weather History Table. If I recall in those notes (which I can't find) I did seem to see a correlation between a group of these exceptions in Diags, and a gap in the WU data. At the moment I'm seeing this CMX exception so rapidly that if dropo...

Re: at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError(WebExceptionStatus st, System.Exception e,

I've been tracking various error / warning conditions from my rig, and I noticed an increase over the past few days of this error. Here's a plot by hour, i.e. exceptions / hour. 20180105_WU_Exceptions.jpg I couldn't get the x-axis the way I wanted, but the shape is what's important, and this plot co...

Re: Jump in Number of Mono Threads

Hi Mark- Happy new year! I have a second Pi and as time allows I want to try Stretch (without the GUI). Boy I'd love to be able to clone the PWS data stream and run the 2 Pis side by side for a time. I am interested in, perhaps, stripping down the OS even further as I think you've done. I'm running ...

Re: Jump in Number of Mono Threads

Well it is a quad core, and it sounds like you have it pretty stripped down.
