"create missing" in dayfile.txt is not working

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

"create missing" in dayfile.txt is not working

Post by vpokroglo » Sat 27 Oct 2018 11:33 am

...as subject says. I am on Cumulus MX, but i have used Cumulus 1.9 for creating missing entries in dayfile.txt sometimes. Now i have updated from win 7 to win 10 and the coolest feature doesn't work anymore. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your answer, but this is not a problem
List separator is OK, and also we use 24 hour format in our country.

When i click on "create missing", I get window "Processing log files...", which disappears after apx. 30 sec. and nothing happens.


In bottom I can only read "Number of entries inserted: 0"
-No error
-dayfileeditlog.txt file is empty - 0 bytes

Any errors in the diags file at that time? Or near the beginning, when Cumulus starts up?

Presumably it is not the simple answer that the day (or days) missing in your dayfile is (are) also missing in the detailed log file?
Even Cumulus cannot work the miracle of adding a day when there is nothing in log files.

(Also I presume when you moved from Cumulus 1 to Cumulus MX, you copied across past detailed log files, not just latest month).

I suspect that the problem is as first suggested in this thread - your date format is now different (or at least one of the formats is different). Hence Cumulus cannot find the monthly log files as they do not have the names that it is now expecting.

I have lost too many hours with that problem, I have also tried different date/time formats, but no effect. Nevermind, I will go back to win7 today, because there are other problems with win10 too.
Thanks for all your help!
