Getting Historical Data with WeatherFlow
« on: September 25, 2017, 10:53:20 PM »
Brain,

Just talked to the guys at WeatherFlow and they say you can request past data from the WeatherFlow servers via the REST interface. Could this be implemented?

I've had WD flatline a couple of times and it would be nice to be able to fill in the data that was missed.

Thanks!

should be possible
they are sending me a unit, so that will make it much easier to work on that
was there a lost internet connection or similar re the flat line , or?

I am currently getting data over UDP and it will flatline maybe every 2 weeks or so. Not sure what is causing it, doesn't appear that that there was any power loss. Restarting WD fixes it. I have a second WD running getting data from a Davis unit and it doesn't flatline. Once you get a chance to get the historical data thing figured out let me know and I'll test it.

what I need to do then maybe is force a reset/re connection of the UDP connection when  flat line is detected?

That might help, wouldn't know unless it is tried. Don't know much about how this stuff works :)

when the data flow next stops, see if there is any error under view, program event log
and see if going into the weather station type and resetting the station type gets the data flowing again
as a test
