Monthly Rainfall Record at March rollover

Post by mcrossley »

Steve,

I just noticed that a new rainfall record for March was recorded on the 1st during the midnight rollover. MX had been running since the 27th Feb, but at the end of month rollover this happened...

2016-03-01 00:00:00.552 New monthly record, month = 3: 2016-03-01 00:00 87.800 "Highest monthly rainfall" 2015-03-31 00:00 75.200

Most odd, I have removed it from monthlyalltime.ini, but is there an explanation?

Running build 3037

Re: Monthly Rainfall Record at March rollover

Post by steve »

Mine's the same. I don't know whether this a new bug in 3037, or whether it's always been there and it depends on the previous month's total and the existing record (i.e. the February total beat the existing March record - that's what happened in my case). It looks like a timing issue where a new reading arrives just after midnight but before it's reset the rain counters. I'll investigate.

I think there was a similar problem to this reported a while ago, and I was working on changes to fix the problem, but I think I hadn't finished the changes (and had forgotten about them) when I decided to release build 3037.

I think it may have been me. See https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=14798

I was just about to reset my March record from the entry in the diags file, but the old record was from last year, and was clearly also a result of the same bug! I guess at some point I should put my data into Cumulus 1 and get it to re-calculate the correct figure, but I'm not sure I can be bothered given that I have quite a lot of errors in my data logs anyway due to sensor failures, amongst other things.

I do have a working anemometer again, for the time being at least.
