    Re: Option to Change # of Recent Wind Samples?

    You can set the wind speed averaging period by setting "AvgSpeedMinutes=N" in the [Station] section in cumulus.ini, and similarly, you can get Cumulus to send the average speed to Wunderground by setting "SendAverage=1" in the [Wunderground] section. You'll need to install 1.8.9 to use these, thoug...

    Option to Change # of Recent Wind Samples?

    Is there currently any way in Cumulus to change the number of recent wind samples saved by the software in order to generate averages/gusts? I'm wondering because I am thinking about tinkering with the averaging interval. I do like the Cumulus default of 10 minutes for wind speed/direction averages ...

    Re: Realtime gauges v1.0.0.3 available for download

    Further investigation suggests that both the font problem and the date/time axis problem are a result of changing the extension of the Silverlight application to '.txt'. I noticed the font and graph axis problems, but I wasn't sure if it was worth it to ask about it or not. The functionality isn't ...

    Thanks to the new realtime.html page Steve made available that makes it easier for us html novices to make a page around the Cumulus realtime graphic, I've come up with this: http://www.nctelecom.net/oaknjwx/realtime.html The gradient in the background of the realtime graphic reflects colors used on...

    Re: Realtime gauges v1.0.0.3 available for download

    I wonder if perhaps my host doesn't have support for the Silverlight .xap file, in which case it would make sense that I could upload the .xml and .html files, but not the .xap. When I try to upload the .xap file on WxSolution, it says the upload was a success, even though no file actually made it ...

    Re: Realtime gauges v1.0.0.3 available for download

    The .xap file isn't there; http://www.nctelecom.net/oaknjwx/CumulusRealtime.xap gives a '404 not found'. The xml file is there, so I don't know what's happend to the .xap. It definitely needs uploading in binary mode, the other two probably would be OK either way. Well I'm glad we know what the pro...

    You just upload, once only, three files: the .xap, the .xml, and the .html. Thanks - I just went through and uploaded the three files into my main directory/took the files out of the Cumulus upload lineup under internet settings...still no dice; I just have a gray background. I'm using WxSolution's...

    Re: Realtime gauges v1.0.0.3 available for download

    You're not supposed to extract the files from the xap, I'd have provided them separately if that was the case. Upload the xap file as is. By the way, what do you mean by 'set the xml file to upload'? I uploaded the xap file on its own and then tried to upload each component of it separately. Should...

    Re: Realtime gauges v1.0.0.3 available for download

    Sorry if this is a simple process for most, but I have no idea how to get the CumulusRealtime page to work. I downloaded the zip, uploaded all of the files to my site except the readme file (including all of those dll files in the "xap" thing), set the xml file to upload and to refer to my realtime....

    Re: Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    That probably explains it. 200 reads is going to be much less than 10 minutes with VirtualVP. The sleep interval is configurable via cumulus.ini - edit the file, and in the [Station] section, add a line: VP2SleepInterval=2000 The value is in milliseconds, 2 seconds is probably a good place to start...

    Re: Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    One thing does occur to me - are you using VirtualVP? I have no idea how quickly the data comes back from that. Basically, Cumulus sits in a loop reading the data then sleeping for 100ms. Reading directly from the hardware, this results in an interval of just under 3 seconds. VirtualVP probably ret...

    Re: Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    I think I may have an explanation. Cumulus works out the peak gust in the last ten minutes by saving the most recent readings and checking the ones which are from the last 10 minutes to find the highest. It saves the 200 most recent readings. The reading interval for the VP2 used to be just over 3 ...

    Re: Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    While using Cumulus to send to WU, I noticed it was "missing" some of the 10-min peak gusts, as in the actual highest gust from the 10-min period wasn't always sent to WU, but a lesser number was sent instead (I know this from comparing the Cumulus 10-min data to my WeatherLink 10-min data from the ...

    Re: Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    Thanks a lot for the quick reply. Since average wind speed/direction and peak gust data is important to me, it's great to hear that Cumulus does indeed use these parameters for the WU upload.

    Wunderground Upload Wind Specs?

    I've been extremely impressed with Cumulus since I started running it several days ago, and I'm thinking of possibly using it to upload to Wunderground (for normal, non-rapidfire updates). Before I do so, though, I was wondering about the specifications of the wind data that Cumulus sends to WU. Her...
