Re: Monthly Records show mixed months

It looks to me like Cumulus the rollover was not completed on midnight 31 Oct as the clock was changed from 31 Oct 15:17 to 1 Nov 07:17. This left the October data in the monthly.ini file and until the November records exceed the October values the file will not be updated (Steve?) 2017-10-31 15:17:...

Re: Low Battery notification

I'd either get Cumulus to run a script at the archive interval that checks the battery status web tag. Or get Cumulus to generate a tag file that a script run as a scheduled task say once a hour checks. In both cases you'd need an SMTP server to send the message. If you are running Windows PowerShel...

Mark - have a look at the Wiki - all the edits on that page are by you!

Wiki fixed, but I haven't looked in the script itself as the header also contains example usages iirc.

Re: Questions about wind readings

I may look at things like BearingRangeFrom etc at a later date maybe but I have already had one comment from a friend saying it looks too complicated already. I always take the view that my web page is mainly for me - given the numbers of visitors it isn't a competitor for BBC/weather! - so I put u...

Re: Questions about wind readings

It sounds reasonable to me. The only significant differences to how I think Cumulus handles things are: Cumulus just passes the last reading for 'wlatest' and 'bearing' rather than a rolling 50 second average. Cumulus uses the 10 minute high gust value for 'wgust'. Does 'windgustbearing' exist? I do...

I use Fiddler for this sort of thing - I last used it to see if CMX was url encoding Weather Underground http calls - it really is an excellent tool when you need it.

Re: Downgrade to Cumulus 1?

If your locale hasn't changed - are you running MX on the same computer as you will run C1? - then I think it should only need some minor tweaks to the cumulus.ini file. The NOAA filename template changed on MX.

Re: Long-term graphs

The most flexible way is to use a database, then you can extract whatever data you want. Cumulus MX has the option of directly logging data into a DB, for Cumulus 1 there is a PHP script to do it

Thanks Mark, there is an About page on the top menu on the right, you may have to scroll across to see it.

Ah, yes I missed that, thanks.

Re: Editing CMX logs using Windows Cumulus 1

I have edited MX files in Cumulus 1 before without any issue, but my date formats are the same so it was easy.

Re: Alphanumeric Password Format

From what I can see MX doesn't do a HttpUtility.UrlEncode() of the url string that is generated, so probably the same for C1?

Re: Need help/instructions to arrange the weather data from my software SWPI to CumulusMX

You will have a little bit a job on doing that. First you need to get the raw data into the monthly file format - see http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Monthly_log_files Once you have done that you can use Cumulus v1 on a Windows machine to rebuild most of the other files and the records files - there ar...

Re: No weather update on localhost:8998

Is your windows firewall blocking the connection? Try temporarily disabling the firewall and see if it works then.
