log file irregular updating
« on: April 08, 2018, 01:55:10 AM »
I am using a Vantage Pro2 station. At regular intervals (several times a day) the Weather Display log file eg 42018lg.txt does not update. The data is still in the logger and I can rebuild the log file but it is a tedious process having to do it every time I open Weather Display. In the example below you will see the log file stopped recording at 11:20 and started again at 13:29.  I am also having a problem with the rain fall not resetting at the end of each month. Any help would be appreciated.

do you mean WD was not running during those times?
if so then make sure the switch is on under control panel, data logger
and the time and date on the weather station console matches the pc time and date and the data logger interval is set to 1 minute

Some times WD is running and sometimes not. Data logger switch is on and logger interval is set to one minute. Time on console does not match the pc time. I am not sure why but I will adjust it and see what happens. How close to the pc time does the console need to be. It is currently about 15 minutes out.

you can set WD to update the time on the console to the pc time auto
set that setting in the data logger setup
