Forum email problem - resolved

This problem has now been resolved. There are likely to be many instances of forum emails (notifications, new user requests) failing to be delivered during the next 24-48 hours. When I am confident that the problem has been resolved I will make another announcement. TL;DR During the early hours of t...

Re: Rain readings in exceptionally windy weather

Also, remember that rainfall totals can and do vary over short distances. You probably didn't lose a massive amount at 2m, compared to what you would lose if your station was mounted at roof level. FWIW I think that a mounting height around the optimum temperature height is the best compromise, as y...

Re: FTP Error Code 10060

The error logs states Cumulus is trying to connect when in fact its connected is the puzzling part. This is because the connection has been made, but files can't be sent/retrieved at that moment. The 10060 error is a timeout error not a connection error, so maybe the error message is a bit misleadi...

Re: FTP Error Code 10060

10060 is a timeout error code, so your PC is having difficulty passing data to the server via FTP. It must be intermittent, as I just looked at your site and it looks up-to-date. So it looks like an intermittent network problem. I doubt that the usb-to-serial converter is the culprit. Note that you ...

Re: Rain readings in exceptionally windy weather

You've come up against one of the shortcomings of PWS units such as the Vue. In meteorological measurements there are standard heights above ground for measuring the various weather elements: Wind: 10 metres (33 feet): This is to reduce the effect of turbulence and friction from obstacles such as bu...

Re: Meteotemplate

This could be achieved by setting your upload interval to 1 minute (Settings -> Internet settings -> Upload interval) and not having "Realtime.txt FTP" checked. Or you could set your Realtime interval to 60 seconds (Settings -> Internet settings -> Realtime interval) and have "Realtime.txt FTP" chec...

Re: Update time wrong

It looks as if your weather station time is set incorrectly, as both your local time and Cumulus time look to be okay. I don't know anything about the WH1080PC, so can't offer advice on how to correct the time on the weather station.

Re: Vantage Vue ISS Battery Choice

I've seen conversations on the forum referring to faulty capacitors, or perhaps the term used was "supercap". It sounds as if your symptoms are suggesting this. Don't take my word for it, though, have a search around the forum and you may find a solution.

Re: Cumulus MX Fail

It looks as if MX can't connect to your weather station. If you open a browser tab and go to http://127.0.0.1:8998/ this will bring up the web gui with the settings page for your weather station. If you and your browser are not on the computer that MX is running on then you will need to replace 127....

Re: Running MX for the first time

Sounds like it may have stopped running. Can you screenshot your terminal window? Also, if you could zip up the contents of the MXdiags folder and attach them to a post on here, that would be useful.

Re: SFTP on Linux

Haha - sorry about that! You can get Cumulus to call an external application (such as scp) to do the SFTP transfer on its behalf. The outline is on the Wiki , but will obviously need to be tweaked. You just need to create a bash script that will use scp and copy your files across. It'll be tricky - ...

Re: Install CumulusMX

Looking at the error message - it appears that Mono starts okay, but is unable to initialise the Cumulus application. That would point to a missing dependency - such as one of the distribution DLLs. If it isn't that then I would look at the privileges of the user you are starting the application wit...
