Re: Monthly Records show mixed months

Yes, the clock apparently jumping like that means the end of day rollover wasn’t done, and hence neither was the end of month rollover, so it just carried on using the same month.ini contents, effectively merging the two months into one.

Re: Problem with Oregon WMR968

Are any of the other pages showing any data? If not, you will need to turn on debug logging AND data logging in MX, by editing Cumulus.ini so that it is onat start up,then the diags file may show something useful.

Re: Monthly Records show mixed months

Could be a bug in MX, or could be that there's an issue with the clock on your Pi. If those records shown as 22 Oct should really be today (22 Nov) then there may be something in the diags files, so if you zip up the MX diags folder and attach it, I'll take a look when I can.

Re: Install problem on CumulusMX

3.2.8 is the only version I've tested on, it works well (unless you are using a locale which uses a comma for a decimal separator, as mentioned in the MX docs).

Re: Install problem on CumulusMX

The problem is related to the USB library and hence only affects those stations driven using a USB (HID) protocol. Davis stations are driven either as serial devices or TCP/IP devices and are thus not affected.

Re: Install problem on CumulusMX

My understanding from a number of other posts in the forum is that this happens because the structure of the Mono libraries has changed in later versions of Mono, and the USB library which MX uses is no longer compatible.

Re: CumulusMX freezes on Raspberry Pi

Sorry, there's nothing in that file to indicate a problem. There is no exception like the one you posted above. The file ends at 19:55 today (21st November) - is that when you last experienced a problem?

Re: Calibrating extra sensor and adding a display

If you need any help with the database settings in MX, just ask and someone should be able to help. There may well be information in the wiki.

Re: Calibrating extra sensor and adding a display

Wouldn’t grass temp normally be lower than air temp anyway, or is that not the case? There is no calibration setting for extra sensors in Cumulus, and it doesn’t record highs and lows for extra sensors. You could record the values in a database and extract highs and lows from that. There are web tag...

Re: Data catch up (Cumulus 1)

I can't see anything wrong from the three files you attached - I'm not sure why you chose those three, it's much easier for me to find problems if you simply zip up the entire diags folder and attach it (as a single zip file), so I can see all of the diags files, and open them all at the same time.

Re: Data flatlining

All the true spikes I’ve seen generated by Fine Offset stations have been several degrees, so I I’m assuming that’s what most people have it set to. The typical spikes which Cumulus tries to ignore exist for one reading only, and the reading returns to normal. So the spike removal setting makes Cumu...

Re: Data flatlining

That’s a very low setting for spike removal, a Fine Offset “spike” is typically very much higher than that. Your flat-lining is almost certainly caused by your spike removal setting (i.e. your station is recording an increase in temperature of more than 0.3 degrees over a 48 second period, this is p...

Re: Regular Linux Mint failures with latest MX build

I’m on permanent vacation now :lol:

Yes, the log files would be good. I think they may just show an exception accessing the serial port, and MX has no recovery from that.

Re: Regular Linux Mint failures with latest MX build

What exactly do you mean by “crashes”? Does it exit abnormally and print an exception to the console? What does the end of the diags file look like? Hopefully you have debug logging turned on?

Re: PressOffset

Yes, I can see that from the files you uploaded. Perhaps the USB interface on your console has locked up - a common problem with Fine Offset stations. Presumably you are you using the ‘synchronise’ setting but this hasn’t helped? All I can suggest is the same as always, that you reset your console.
