CumulusMX Freezes

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

CumulusMX Freezes

Post by ronwright418 »

Running CumulusMX 3050 on Pi2, Raspian 10 (Buster), Mono version: 5.18.0.240. At startup (sudo mono CumulusMX.exe) the program runs well and all features seem to be working properly. After a few hours the program stops sending data to all applications. Attempting to log in to the Pi show it offline. Restarting the system (the Pi) allows a login and CumulusMX restart either at the keyboard or remotely and all runs normally again (for a few hours). The attached MXdiags are from yesterday. The last update to index.htm at the Website was 03:03. Weather Cloud sent a notification that it stopped receiving data at 3:00 PM. Graphics on AWEKAS, CWOP and Weather Underground, etc. show similar stoppages. Attempting to log in from Team Viewer shows the system offline. There is no response from the keyboard, though the diagnostics seem to be continuing to run. This also happens on my Pi3 with a slightly different version of Raspian. Both systems continue to run properly until CumulusMX is run.

Any ideas how to correct this?
Thanks,
Ron

MXdiags seem to indicate a problem with
Error connecting ftp - Could not resolve host 'ftp.fatcow.com'
Sorry I can't help with that but you might consider updating to current CumulusMX version 3.0.2 build 3052
and others may have a more helpful suggestion.

Enjoy,
Paul

You have a few errors similar to this:

Code: Select all

2019-10-02 10:32:08.081 Error at line 109 of data/Oct19log.txt : Input string was not in a correct format.
You should address these.

For the other errors, it looks as if your system is experiencing resource problems - possibly disk space?

Thanks for the replies.
Paul, I don't understand why it resolved and connected so many times in several hours, but not "now"? Something not resetting? Maybe at the website end? I don't think I have enough traffic to cause an overload problem there.
I think I'll just replace 3050 with 3052 rather than just update as I did moving from 3043.
Freddie, I don't know which input string to investigate. df -h shows about 27G available on the 32G micro sd.

ronwright418: it's in the error message.

Code: Select all

2019-10-02 10:32:08.081 Error at line 109 of data/Oct19log.txt
So look at line 109 of that file - there's something wrong with it. Correct format of the data files is covered in the Wiki.

For the other errors: some members have mentioned problems with inadequate power supplies with Pi's - causing network drop-outs.

Looks like you've got bags of disk space, so that won't be a problem.
