Re: WH1080 not communicating with CumulusMX on Linux Mint

I'm not really the man for this - maybe @freddie?

But a quick search shows pages like - https://ramonh.dev/2020/09/22/usb-device-linux-startup/

Re: WH1080 not communicating with CumulusMX on Linux Mint

There is no debug logging in that file?

But is does show that CMX is not able to open the file stream to the USB device.

Have you tried running CMX with sudo to minimise any permissions issues?

Re: FTP issues

I just use... Protocol = 2 - Use SSH for FTP Port = 22 plus username & password. But my point is, if it works for me I can't "fix it" as it isn't broke on my dev platform. If you are prepared to share your SFTP login details and default folder, then I can try connecting to your server ...

Re: Low Dew Point / Humidity since latest release

The humidity readings just come from your station, or are you saying the values in CMX are different from your station console?

Re: CumulusMX doesn't run

I'd have a look at your Cumulus.ini file. Is it corrupt? Try restoring it from a back-up.

Re: FTP issues

Active mode is possibly worth a try. There appears to be something blocking the connection somewhere, every upload gets the error... Timed out trying to connect!

The connection logs in OK, but the transfers all fail.

Re: WeatherLink Live stability

If you can only run for two days then something does seem to be wrong, so yes post your logs and I'll take a look.

Re: WeatherLink Live stability

If it is a memory issue then the logs may not show anything as the process just gets terminated by the OS. The console log should show an "out of memory" error.

Re: WeatherLink Live stability

Loads of memory then, is it a pi 4?


I just restarted my CMX instance, the network stats from the WLL were still 100% - 0 dropped of 633,790 data messages.

Re: CMX 3183 crashes

Around 90 - 110 MB is normal depending on what processes you have configured.

My "live" install I just restarted, it was up to 630 MB after 18 and a half days.
