Several Flat Lines in a Week
« on: May 20, 2017, 01:18:36 PM »
In the last week I have had 3 instances of flat lines at totally different times.

Just seems odd to have so many in a week.

I checked program event log, nothing.

I'm on build 284 and see there is a new 285 which I will grab.

Just thought ide ask if anyone else has seen this.

Thanks

do you think it is the software?   I would check the datalogger to be sure that the data is there , just in case the datalogger is failing.

Data is there...

When I reconnect, I get all missing data back

Just odd that I have seen 3 of these within a week.

Hey Brian

WD has been the most stable I have seen for a while.   I was on B284 for a long time. Then I started getting flat lines.

I went up to B285 and am still getting them.  All at random times.  Nothing in program event log.

Any thoughts?

what station do you have?  and what data logger do  you have?

I have a davis and I am able to sort of scroll through the console as well as I use weathercat on occasion.   I essentially use both programs to generate weather data for me then I put it on a spreadsheet.
By scrolling on the date and time on the console, there is a graph of sorts it shows and I can see some of the information.   Using other software I can see if it is the logger or software.

That being said,   if you exit weatherdisplay and restart it, does it reload your data logger the same

Is there a time trend there , that is so many days or at certain times of the day.   I am guessing that Weatherdisplay is reading the data in the logger.    I am guessing it is in the logger reading the same data try purging the logger archive and see if it gets better. (kind of like take a tall glass of prune juice, three capfuls of Miralax in it and seeing how the day goes, not that I have done that, I did 2 caps)

Hey there

thanks for the reply...

As stated earlier using a Davis VP2. When I reconnect I get all the data back. So its not a logger issue.

Its either WD or something in my environment (i.e. on my mac).

Happens at random days and times.

I generally close and restart WD throughout the week to keep it fresh and memory low etc

I had yet another flat line.

This and the last 2 or 3 I THINK were around 9pm - not sure if that means anything.

On some of them (including last night) I checked program event log and saw some kind of access violation. I will post that when I get home.  I didn't think too much of that on the others because I think they happened after the flat line. I think they happened after the 6am where it resets the coldest night. Thus I assumed not related. Plus I think I have gotten those before.

Is there any troubleshooting that I can do on my end?

Btw once again hook up to davis VP and all the data is restored !!!

Hello,

It would seem perhaps there is a pattern after all.

The last several have all occurred approx. 21:05.

Program event log has shown some access violations, but i'm not sure if they were there before or not.

FYI...
