Re: raspberry pi 3

Hey Cumulus MX users, I've had a raspberry pi 3, running Jessie the latest build and I've just been installing LAMP and running sudo apt-get update also a few other commands I did have the stop start script running however I thought that the problem may be because of this script which I'm keen to g...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

OK, I just took a look at the console - it is a "niceScale thing". Change line 137 of gauges.js to... niceScale : false, fixes it. I have changed the main gauges code base to apply a permanent fix. I am assuming that it is in the /home/pi/CumulusMX/interface/steelseries/scripts/gauges.js file? I ch...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

Cumulus 1 cannot have the same problem, as the gauges in Cumulus MX dashboard are a slightly modified version of the Steel Series gauges created by Mark Crossley, and didn't exist in the Cumulus 1 dashboard only on the website if you installed them yourself as a replacement of the standard web site...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

Ah, OK, do you have a web page and see the same behaviour on that? No webpage at this time. I have been thinking about setting one up, but haven't had the time lately. It is a rare enough happening that it is not a huge deal. Not sure if the old Cumulus version had the problem, and I am usually awa...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

I would need to see the page to take this diagnosis any further. It is the page that you get when you log into MX via the internal ip address, mine is http://192.168.0.106:8998/gauges.html so I am not sure how you would get to it. :) I use Teamviewer to get into another machine in the house and the...

Predicted high for this weekend is 119F so I will keep an eye out for the rolling guage over the weekend. That is if I can keep from melting. :)

Re: Interesting MX observation.

I think it will be the gauge code, a quick way to check if it is what I think it is would be to change the following parameter in gauges.js... niceScale : true, //to niceScale : false, This may have other effects, so it is not a solution to the problem if it does fix the cloud base scale. I just no...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

Which gauge - the one in the UI or on a web site, or both? If one on a web site is doing it, please give a link. You'll need to look at the actual data being supplied to the gauge to determine whether the value in the data is flipping between zero and the actual value, or whether the data is OK and...

Re: Interesting MX observation.

Same day, the temp is now below 90 (10:15PM) and the dew point is 45.5 and Humidity is at 22% with the Cloud Base sitting at a steady 10,000 feet. I'll have to check again tomorrow afternoon and see what the cloud base readings are since we are expected to be set to broil again tomorrow. Gotta love ...

Interesting MX observation.

Right now in Chandler Arizona it is HOT. 114.0 with a Dew Point of 21.4 Humidity of 4%.

My cloud base gauge is rolling from 0 to just over 21,000 and back starting at 0 and back up over and over again. I've never noticed that behavior before, but then again it is HOT!!!

Re: Cumulus 'locking up' W10 64bit

Automatic updates can be a real killer. I would turn them off if Windoze 10 allows it and do them manually when needed. Better still, I would seriously consider moving everything off your Windoze box and onto a Raspberry Pi or Banana Pi. For the small cost of a Pi you get your computer back for your...
