CumulusMX: how to correct wrong rainfall data ?

Postby vr34 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 2:00 pm

Hi,
My fine offset 3083 blocked (USB problem) during a big rain. Thus my current rainfall data are wrong.
I did manualy correct dayfile.txt with the data given by the graduated rain gauge of my neighbour.
But how to correct <#rmonth>, <#ryear> data ?
Regards,
Vincent

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.

After suffering a power failure last night, my CumulusMX (on RasPi) discarded the January 2018 rainfall figures.
I managed to edit the DAYFILE to add yesterdays 7mm.
However, on the dashboard it shows me:

Code: Select all

     RAINFALL
     7.0 mm


BUT ... still some editing is needed to adjust:

Code: Select all

     This month: 0.0 mm
     This year: 0.0 mm      <<-- Which file gives these totals?


Now also, on 18-01-2018 we had 42.2mm, this shows up in Records - January:

Code: Select all

     High daily rain   42.2 mm   18 January 2018     <<-- Correct data!


But is not calculated in the Dashboard accumulated figures for the year.

If you can just give me a pointer which file I must edit? My logfile "Jan18log" is rather messy and seems to have structural errors in it, as it repeats a lot of entries and then has some unformatted data in it as well.

PS: do we need to keep the old log files from years ago, or are they safe to delete?

Thanks sfws! ;)
I have edited both the dayfile and month file - will see if it did the trick. But I have to wait for the end of the day to see if the data is accumulated.
