Strange problems with data update

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).

Strange problems with data update

Post by boky12 » Wed 01 Jan 2020 4:28 pm

Hi,

I have some strange problems with few last update Cumulus MX and weather station WS2300/2350 over USB serial port, after program start running or after some time cumulus stops receiving temperature [data just freeze but only temperature] sometimes works normal, and for while internet update some time stops.

I use Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 on mini pc. What to do with this problem?

Thanks on help

Switch on debug and data logging, let Cumulus run for a while, then zip up your MXdiags folder and attach it here. You can then switch the logging off again.

The Fine Offset code hasn't changed for some time though - I suspect your console is going to need a reset, but lets see...

At what time in that last log did it stop updating?

Did you find something in log data? What does mean precise this in data log "ReadSerial error The operation has timed out." - Seams strange, in cumulus 1 works ok, I will try with fresh install MX

[problem with out temp is still the same, only that dont work, even with fresh install MX)

I cannot see any problems, MX continues to recieve temp/hum packets - it appears you have two temperature sensors, ch0 and ch1

I've never looked at the Lacrosse code before, so I'm trying to get my head around how it works!....

Ah! Hang on, you say you have a Lacrosse 2300, but you have the station type set to Oregon Scientific WMR100?

No wonder the 2300 code wasn't tying up with the logged messages

OK, I cannot see anything going wrong - but the logs do not have a lot of information in them, I've added some more for the next build.

Everything seems to be running OK, the values coming in for the outdoor temperature all the way through the last log file are valid. So I'm at a bit of a loss now. I do not have a WS2300 to test the code against, but as far as I can see it is running OK.

The serial comms are unreliable, but from what I have read that is normal for these stations,

Its just strange, when I run Cumulus 1, incoming data no problem, in MX temp just stuck and don't move

I know that serial can be tricky, thank you on additional info in debug, in new log seams ok, just strange thing with temp

thanks on help
