Re: Weatherlink USB - Computer Off - Update

The Weatherlink connector acts as both the computer interface and a data logger. It stores data and makes it available to software like Cumulus, so that it can catch up when it hasn't been running, in a similar way to the built-in logger in your 2080.

Re: RealtimeGaugesTxtFTP bug

I can't reproduce this with the latest code. It's possible that I have fixed it since build 3043, but diff is not showing up any changes that would affect this. I'd have thought that lots of people would have reported this problem if it was a straightforward bug in MX. Did you update these files fro...

Re: Download Clock Issue

I’m pretty sure that doesn’t clear the logger memory, but the manual presumably has instructions. Nothing you do to Cumulus is going to affect the logger.

Re: Download Clock Issue

It’s just reporting the time stamps from the logger entries that the station is sending. You could try clearing the logger, perhaps.

Re: How to delete all data only for 2018?

Stop Cumulus, delete all of the 2018 monthly log files, edit dayfile.txt to remove all the 2018 entries, then use the all-time and all-time monthly record editors to recreate the all-time records (if required).

Re: Downgrade to Cumulus 1?

MX stores its data in the same files as Cumulus 1. The only other things I can think of at the moment which might cause an issue if going back to 1.9.4 are dates in .ini files, as I have changed a few to ISO format, but in theory 1.9.4 (or actually the system/library routines used by it) ought to be...

Re: Cumulus 1 to Cumulus MX Davis Vantage Pro2 Cannot Connect

Cumulus opens the port with a baud rate of 19200 bps but the system software is saying that the max your serial port can go is 10751. That sounds spurious and it probably needs setting correctly somehow - don’t know how you do that I’m afraid, Google may help.

Re: 1st Installation will not run........

That error usually occurs if you are not running MX as administrator (from the right click menu or from an administrator command window).

Re: New Hardware - no Dashboard but updates working??

If the dashboard, now, and gauges pages aren’t working but everything else is, then you have an issue with the websockets protocol, as mentioned in the MX FAQ post. You can switch those pages to ‘ajax’ if required.

Akamai is a Content Delivery Network. It’s quite possible that USGS use it for their web services.

Re: CumulusMX: how to correct wrong rainfall data ?

Edit daily totals in dayfile.txt with Cumulus stopped. If you have edited correctly, monthly and annual totals will be correct when you start Cumulus - if not, you have some other problem.

Lots of information about this in the FAQ and wiki.

Re: Internet consumption in CumulusMX and Mono

It could be trying to upload the realtimegauges.txt file - look for the setting and turn it off.
