@rogerthn:
So, MAP is OK then. Weird though why it did not work first time. I'll keep an eye on it.

And could you send me the log for a normal run? You say there is still 'index out of range messages.
Not sure I 'll change it but I might, depending on the complexity and consequences.
Just curious.
Log file as PM?

And for other CumulusUtils starters: YES, you need at least 32 days in dayfile.txt to use the modules of CumulusUtils which use the data.

If Hans includes the 32 day fix viewtopic.php?p=144436#p144436
You will NOT get any meaningful output with few input days but you can try some modules with less than 32 days in dayfile.txt
SysInfo can be used.
MapsOn can be used but Website needs to be specified
Yadr can be used
Records can be used
NOAA can be used
DayRecords can be used
Forecast can be used but ForecastSystem etc needs to be specified
WindRose can be used
pwsFWI, Graphs and Top10 will say Exception Unknown : Index was out of range

Fair enough, that seems a bug to me. But I assume that will be over tomorrow - sorry for that, one more day :( - as I am not behind my computer at the moment and can't do an instant fix. I will repair it so that others who start from scratch won't run into the same problem.

Hmm... I guess you are right.

And I now remember the point which definitely should have been handled correctly: when using 30 days pwsFWI requires 5 more days to do the process 'smoothing'.
You can read about it on the blog when you search on 'Smoothing' (and 'quenching').

When I introduced / modified smoothing, I forgot to adjust the starting conditions for the required added 5 days. That's sloppy programming, right :mrgreen:
As said, I will correct it, but hope you can handle the wait because it won't be ready before your wait is over. Sorry for that. 8-)

What you might try btw - as workaround - is set analysis to 90 (anyway larger than 35 or so).
The algorithm seems to work then.

Getting there 8-)
I did start with an empty folder cumulusutils, UploadDir=/cumulusutils
Since the FTP user isn't allowed to create folders I had to create folder css and lib
Then I did create some symbolic links as below to the CumulusMX folder.

Code: Select all

dailyrain.json -> ../weather3/dailyrain.json
dailytemp.json -> ../weather3/dailytemp.json
graphconfig.json -> ../weather3/graphconfig.json
humdata.json -> ../weather3/humdata.json
pressdata.json -> ../weather3/pressdata.json
raindata.json -> ../weather3/raindata.json
realtime.txt -> ../weather3/realtime.txt
realtimegauges.txt -> ../weather3/realtimegauges.txt
solardata.json -> ../weather3/solardata.json
sunhours.json -> ../weather3/sunhours.json
tempdata.json -> ../weather3/tempdata.json
wdirdata.json -> ../weather3/wdirdata.json
winddata.json -> ../weather3/winddata.json
I guess that I can use CumulusMX directly but I "needed" to do it my way ;)

There are a couple of ?
System Info have Nr of processors: <#CpuCount>?
Reports: NOAA seems to need some TLS?
Reports: Rain Graphs, Daily Rain do show Wind Rose other Rain Reports might need more data?
Reports: Temp Graphs need more data to make any sense.
Reports: Misc Graphs need more data to make any sense.
??? Now the Rain Graphs, Daily Rain show Monthly Average Temperature ???

PS
I had to rename "root" index.html to index.htm or it was "picked up" by cumulusutils

Finally

Nice, on Unix indeed you can use sumbolic links iso CumulusRealTimeLocation parameter. Windows does not know those.
You're the first to do so :idea: :!:
Others may thank you for this ;)

Your report directory in Cumulus is not the same as in CumulusUtils. It is a free to choose directory. Note that the report files MUST be in default format.

Now that really is weird. When debugging the console (F12) I see many errors. When checking the raingraph file I can see that it is the moving average which misses data.
That is a bug (again, you're the first working with so little data ;)
But It is surprising it then comes up with the WindRose. :groan:
Javascript remains working wonders especially when with Highcharts.

Anyway, I'll look into a fix, but a workaround probably is to set the Moving Average period to less than half the amount of data you have. So in your case, set PeriodMovingAverage to 10 or so.

Yes, most of those require more data. Preferably more than a year. Patience is a virtue ;)

No.

EVT by the way is not supported by your weather station so that graph better be swithced off., The fact that you see that graph on the EVT position is just as strange as the WindRose in the Daily Rain graph position. First set your moving average to 15 and then we'll see how it goes.

And you must fill in the normal values in CumulusMX for both rain and temperature. (Settings->NOAA settings->Normal Mean Temperatures & Normal Precipitation

NOAA might be fixed at some time :o

PeriodMovingAverage (temporary) set to 10

DailyEVT=false
MonthlyEVT=false
Is it possible to hide menu Reports: Misc Graphs
temp.png

Index file in "root" back to index.html and now it seems to be OK.
The "abnormality" happens if CUsermenu.txt is missing
With missing NOAA configuration ../index.html is shown in Reports NOAA :lol:

Minor issue but I did find GET /cumulusutils/lib/steelseries.min.js.map in nginx error log?
Not seen in the log file from today, yet?

Has to do with debugging steelseries. Not required if well configured.
Don't pay attention.
