Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

I want to thank Steve for his fantastic support. I've now got my data for the missing period thanks to WeatherLink and Steve. :D

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Lucky old me eh? :lol: Never mind. If you can make Cumulus even more robust and I can get that missing data then some good has come out of this.

Take your time with it. I'm in no great hurry. Thank goodness I kept WeatherLink running!

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

I suppose it could pop up an error message if the first write fails - which will be straight away if there is data downloaded from the logger, or within the log interval if not. The message wouldn't stop anything else working. It's a bit messy to force a write if one isn't needed. Am I the first pe...

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Could I have your July log as well, please? The conversion won't be perfect, due the differences in the things that WL and Cumulus logs, but most things will be correct and the rest not far off. July log attached. Beggars can't be choosers! ;) I'm just grateful you can give me most of what's I've l...

Yes, sadly the logs are full of: 2009-07-17 22:40:00 : 17/07/2009 22:40:00 Error writing to data file: C:\Program Files\Cumulus\data\Jul09log.txt.

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Hi again Steve, Here's the data from WeatherLink for the affected period - 7-26 July. I exported the whole of July and removed the data Cumulus already has. These records are every 15 mins compared to 5-min with Cumulus. That hardly matters if I can fill in that big gap. Thanks once again for brilli...

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Cumulus was stopped on the evening of the 7th (probably to upgrade to a new version) and again on 26th July probably for the same reason. It's run on a netbook 24/7 solely for wx use. The dayfile.txt has an entry for all the missing dates which is even odder. If Cumulus was running uninterrupted be...

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Interestingly, those dates are both a day after a new beta was released. Could you have installed the one from 6th July (831) to a different location? Good suggestion but the setup always suggests C:\Program Files\Cumulus and I just go with that. I suppose if anyone else reports a similar problem t...

Re: Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

It's hard to see how Cumulus could have been running all that time without logging anything. Presumably the data was there at some point, you would have noticed if it wasn't? What does you dayfile.txt look like? A corresponding gap? It's baffling. Cumulus was stopped on the evening of the 7th (prob...

Nearly 3 weeks of data lost in log file

Steve, I was going through some of the select-a-graphs for July and noticed a straight line joing two lots of data. On closer inspection of my log file for July the 5-minute entries end at 21:20 on 7 July and only start again at 23:36 on 26 July. It would appear I've lost nearly 3 weeks of data. :sh...

Re: All time records - an idea for extending it

When v2 cones along will I be able to import all my data from v1? Yes - in fact that's the bit I've just been writing. Seems to work OK, and is quite fast. My first attempt took several hours to import a year's worth of data. I have it down to 15 seconds now :) Excellent news! For my measly 3 month...

Re: All time records - an idea for extending it

No worries Steve. I appreciate you have a full-time job plus other demands on your time. And it's not as if I don't already have access to lots of records. I'll wait patiently. ;) When v2 cones along will I be able to import all my data from v1? You're having a decent summer are you? Or is that tong...

Re: All time records - an idea for extending it

Ah, that sounds very interesting. As someone who has worked with Access databases for many years I'm quite familiar with building queries. Probably a slightly different syntax though but I'm sure I can work it out.

Any idea when C2 will be available?

All time records - an idea for extending it

Hi Steve, I wonder if it might be possible to extend the all-time record feature but for a selected month. So by selecting July for instance, Cumulus would examine all the data for each July and display the results in a similar fashion to the all-time records. Clearly this only comes into use once a...

Re: What files to backup to avoid a catastrophe?

Hi Steve,

Backing up the whole Cumulus structure is probably easiest - thanks. Better to have too much than too little.

Hi Risiss,

I don't have a website at present but that's good advice for when I do.
