Process more than 10 files ?(Internet Settings/files)

Post by uncle_bob »

Hi, I thought you can manually add files to the cumulus.ini for processing?
I'm using 1.9.4 :1079 but this doesn't seem to be working:

Code: Select all

ExtraLocal11=C:\Cumulus\web\realtimegaugesT.txt
ExtraRemote11=/weather/realtimegauges.txt
ExtraProcess11=1
ExtraBinary11=0
ExtraRealtime11=1
ExtraFTP11=1
Any ideas?
Thanks Bob

It works for me but I am using v.1.9.3

Numbers 0 to 9 are used through the 10 internet configuration settings available in your console. Your post shows number 11 and is number 10 also used? If 10 is not used not sure if that could cause it not working.

The code hasn't changed in 1.9.4, so it should still work. It doesn't matter which slots in the sequence are used. Note that cumulus.ini only gets read at start up - have you restarted Cumulus (or, better, done the edit with Cumulus stopped)? If so, is the file C:\Cumulus\web\realtimegaugesT.txttmp being created?

Hi Steve and Paul,
Thanks for the replies. Yes I've restarted Cumulus, though I did the edit while it was running. The temp file is being generated.
I've now moved it to one of the 10 slots (freed one up) and it still isn't uploading so I'd say the problem isn't with Cumulus.

Just as a matter of interest (and I couldn't find the answer anywhere), what is the maxi um amount of ExtraProcess files in the ini?

From the help 'Replace XX with a number from 10 to 99 (the existing files are 0 to 9). Look at your existing files in cumulus.ini if you're unsure what to put. '

Likely to be an ftp issue, then. Do you definitely have the path correct? You could turn on ftp logging for a short time and look at the realtimeftplog.txt file for errors

Hmm looks like some thing is broken. No sign of the realtimegauges.txt file.
Steve can see see what the problem may be?

Cheers Bob

The upload of realtime.txt is timing out because the server isn't responding. This results in the connection being disconnected, so it can't go on and upload your extra file. The only thing I would normally suggest to try is to reverse the active ftp mode setting, but presumably you have lots of other files being uploaded successfully? I suppose it could be the file path that's wrong, and the ftp server doesn't respond sensibly. Have you definitely configured the ftp directory correctly? The ftplog.txt file might have some clues.

Thanks again Steve.
I'll have a poke and a prod and see if I can find cause.

Just reporting back that's it's now working OK.

I'm not sure exactly what the problem was but it may've been that I was (unwittingly) trying to upload realtime.txt twice.
Once with the "Sites/Options" - "Web Settings" Realtime.txt FTP button and another with a line in the "Files" slot.

Thanks again Steve, I probably wouldn't have been able to fix it without your help.
