Re: Graphs

Now a cd ftpdirectory and a cd /ftpdirectory/images will work OK on *nix but for IIS I'm guessing that it wont work as this is not the full path, why do it like that, since images is s sub-directory of ftpdirectory a simple cd ftpdirectory followed by a cd images will work fine. Unless you have uns...

Re: Graphs

Any IIS experts reading?

Bob - could you log in to your ftp server with command line ftp, cd to the images directory, do PWD and tell me what it says, please?

Hmmm. So that suggests that the Cumulus calculation of 18 seems a bit low, given that peak gust.

Re: Understanding wind measurements

Steve that still assumes that your anemometer is not in any wind shadow which is highly unlikely in a domestic installation plus its all very well saying it at 10 metres but if that is on a roof and then its only 1 metre above the roof line that throws out the whole calculation anyway. Yes, indeed....

Bob,

Try /wwwroot/webcam for your ftp directory.

This is a Windows server then? :(

Re: Graphs

To allow for changes to the options for uploading, I've changed the way it constructs the path for the images folder. There may be a bug, or it may be that the way you have specified your ftp directory doesn't work with the new code. What it does now is: For the html files: 'CD <ftp_directory>' Then...

Re: Understanding wind measurements

Steve my high gusts match exactly with the test and 24x7 Cumulus and WD, its just the averages which dont match. Yes, but what were the actual gust figures? timestamps are not likely to match exactly but I wold expect them to be within a minute for both averages and gusts since all the data stream ...

Re: Understanding wind measurements

Now we have the ablility to adjust calibration in Cumulus presumably there is a factor that one uses todo with Height Above ground. Mine is 10foot up...... in clear, I think they should be up higher for accurate readings so should I add a bit (a calibration factor) The formula for correcting wind s...

Re: Rain

Yes, the 0.6 is supposed to be yesterday's total. The 0.3 is the highest rate today, which it thinks occurred at midnight (so may well be for yesterday's rain). All of this should be reflected on the main screen.

Re: Understanding wind measurements

Yes, the 'high wind' is the maximum value of the 10-minute average wind speeds. During the processing of the data from the logger, the 10-minute wind calculation probably doesn't have enough data points to work with. I suspect this is why you see the discrepancy between the two Cumulus values. I do ...

Re: 1.8.1

Phew.

The total rainfall count must not have been cleared by whatever you did. The 112.2 must be in there somewhere, or Cumulus would be showing wrong rainfall figures.

I'm pleased it's working OK now, anyway. Sorry about that.

Problem in 1.8.1

There was a problem with the initial upload of Cumulus 1.8.1 which affects users of Fine Offset stations. Could anyone who downloaded before approx 17:50 BST (16:50 UTC) today (Oct 4th) please re-download.

Many apologies.

Re: 1.8.1

Ok, I think I know what's happened, I think I uploaded the wrong version! I have now uploaded the correct version, please could you download again and try it? You'll need to edit that 6732 out of your files. The 112 figure is correct, it's the total rainfall figure from the station. It's what Cumulu...

Are you sure it's not the rainfall RATE that's showing this huge value?

Re: 1.8.1

What sort of weather station do you have, by the way? (It would help if everyone updated their profile).

Anyone else running 1.8.1 and having problems/not having problems?
