Re: Battery Low Alarm

Have you zipped up the log file? If you have and it is still too big, then maybe prune it to only include the time span when you have had problems.

Re: Cumulus not reading data after last run

I've moved this to the Cumulus 1 forum, as I put it in the MX forum by mistake! Looking at the diags file, Cumulus notes that the last data received is from 19:30 0n 24/09/2020. It then asks the logger for archive data since that date, and the logger is reporting that it doesn't have any archive dat...

Re: Server side graphics

Right this was a feature request not a criticism. I was taking about the popup graphs I should have made it clearer. Yep I got that, so I explained the reason that this is more difficult these days is because the client is expected to render the data into graphs rather than having them created serv...

Re: Server side graphics

I would argue that to run CMX out of the box on a platform that you are used to is pretty straightforward. Extending its functionality (i.e. with server-side hover graphs) is maybe not so. The idea of an image is a good one, but can soon get to be a bigger task to support and cater for everyone's ne...

Re: Wind Chill value not the same as station value..

Possibly CMX is ignoring the station's value as the temperature is above 10 Celsius?

Re: Wind Chill value not the same as station value..

Yes, it is expected as wind chill is calculated only when the temperature is 10 Celsius or less. This is because the formula used to calculate wind chill is only valid for temperatures of 10 Celsius or less.

Re: Server side graphics

Design philosophy these days is for the client to do the work so that the data is displayed in the way that best suits the client. This is true of many many web-based services. Facebook, Netflix, iPlayer all work this way, as does the met office web site. Gone are the days when display artefacts wer...

Re: CumuulusMX dashboard empty

The first error (the one about parameter 51) I don't know about. It may have something to do with some of the earlier entries in your dayfile (the ones from 2009) having less data per line than more recent ones - but you will have to wait for @mcrossley to return for confirmation of that. The lines ...

Re: CumuulusMX dashboard empty

Remove lines 4020 to 4031 from your dayfile.txt and all will be well. You need to do this with a decent text editor (NOT notepad, but notepad++ is okay), and you need to do it while MX is not running. The dates of these lines are duplicated in your dayfile.txt, and it looks as if it is the lines bet...

Re: CumuulusMX dashboard empty

There's something wrong with your dayfile.txt. If you like, zip it up and post on here. Or look at it yourself in a good text editor (Notepad++ etc.) - but make sure MX isn't running when you do this.

Re: CumuulusMX dashboard empty

The weird graph is due to duplicate entries in dayfile.txt. It looks as if you may find the following: 28/08/20 29/08/20 09/09/20 29/08/20 30/08/20 31/08/20 01/09/20 02/09/20 etc. That is nothing to do with the lack of data on your interface screen, though. Could you please zip up the contents of yo...

Re: CumuulusMX dashboard empty

You look like you're on the same computer that MX is running on. So why don't you try accessing the interface on http://localhost:8998/

Also, are you sure that your IP address is still 192.168.1.21?

Re: CumulusMX Start|Stop - Management Script (CumulusMX 2.5.5.7)

If the script uses init.d and doesn't try to do anything clever (like removing lock/pid files) then it should be okay, as under the covers calls to init.d are passed to systemd. I wouldn't want to assume anything, though, and would thoroughly test it first. It should be apparent from looking at MXdi...

Re: Cumulus and WeatherLink

Nice one :-) I can't think of an advantage to using serial - but I can with TCP/IP in that you can have Cumulus running on a separate computer to VirtualVP.

Re: Cumulus and WeatherLink

You should read the help pages that come with VirtualVP. VirtualVP is basically a proxy to your weather station. VirtualVP is connected via serial to your weather station. Your software (weatherlink, cumulus) then connects to VirtualVP which will pass on the station's data to your software. You can ...
