Rain rate impossible

Post by mimo57 » Mon 11 Mar 2019 8:28 pm

Hello,
I regularly have a bug in my weather reports, for X reasons, the rain rate mm/h rises to 999.
I fix this bug in the datas, but it comes back regularly.
Is this a problem with my WMR200 console or is it CumulusMX? How to know?
When this product, in general it does not fall more than 3mm of rain in the day, so impossible to have a rainfall rate of 999 mm/h

Switch on debug logging and data logging and when it next rains, if you get the issue post your zipped up MXdiags folder.

Ok,
I activated the Debug, and I'll come back to post the results once the problem is back.
I also found this, if it can already give a track, but of course, it misses the data received from the console, so it will not help much I think.

It may be worth zipping the folder as it is anyway with some data captured, I'll take a quick look.
