Missing log entries and clocksettinghour

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).

Missing log entries and clocksettinghour

Post by Adrian Hudson »

I occasionally get the odd missing log entry (main data log - eg. Jun21log.txt). Its only the odd line maybe once a month or fewer. Its just a bit of a pain if I need to line up extracted readings against data from other systems that don't lose data.

It seems to almost always be the 04:10 reading (I log every 10 minutes). I can't find anything else that might cause this other than the entry clocksettinghour=4 setting in the cumulus.ini file. I wonder if the system setting the clock perhaps forwards, perhaps backwards at 04:00 cause a missed data log?

Has anyone else ever noticed anything like this?

Setting the console time seems to be a very expensive operation on the console. It becomes unresponsive for quite a long time. That is why CMX only sets the time if it is more than 30 seconds out.
