WeatherCat General Discussion / WC FTP connection
« Last post by Blicj11 on May 04, 2019, 03:14:39 AM »
Today I tossed all of my old and dying Apple home networking hardware in the rubbish bin and installed a new router and wireless network. When I brought WeatherCat back up, I see that WC can only upload data to my website when my iMac is set to connect to the home network wirelessly. When I turn wireless off and connect the iMac with a wired ethernet connection to the router, WC cannot FTP data to the site. When wireless is off the error message I get in WC for testing the FTP connection is:
FTP ERROR (6) - Couldn't resolve host.

Is this the way it has always been or is there some arcane setting I have forgotten about? I am using a WeatherLink IP Data Looger if that makes any difference. The logger is successfully cabled via ethernet to the network. As soon as I turn off wireless on my iMac the WC Log shows that FTP (both Main and Aux) stop working. When I turn it back on, I am back in business.
Any ideas?

WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: Graph not beginning at Zero

My first thought was to check the "minimum" value for the "Scaling" settings. Alas, there aren't scale settings for graphs, only for gauges. [blush] It would be interesting to see what values are being 'seen' by WC. [WCSmall]

Dear WeatherCat faithful,

I have an auxillary hard drive that I use to store videos.  When I upgraded to my new 2018 Mac Mini I started having problems with this drive being spontaneously disconnected.  I sent it back under warranty and received a new power supply which appeared to solve the problem.  However, about 2 days ago the problem returned.  I decided to reboot my computer to see if that might solve the issue.

Alas, that required ending my endurance run for WeatherCat.  Here is the status window showing how far WeatherCat got:



As you can see, WeatherCat managed to get over 26 days running continuously.  Alas, my AppleScripts remain down for the count.  However, I was able to get WeatherCat's memory use from Activity Monitor:



As you can see, even after 26 days WeatherCat was using a misery 700+ MB of RAM.  Sadly, macOS wasn't being so efficient.  As you can see I had about 20 GB in use.  However, 30 GB was "unavailable" for use out of the 64 GB of RAM on the machine.  Even with completely new hardware and the latest version of macOS - a substantial memory leak continues.

Only time will tell if my problem with my auxillary drive will be solved by rebooting.  If so that suggests that we may need to reboot more frequently than memory needs along would require.

We shall see . . . . . .

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear Blick, Grand, and WeatherCat observers of all that can be seen on along the countryside,

Lovely to see that California colour coordinates the fire hydrants with the poppies.

And not just for beauty: https://www.fmsystems-inc.com/fire-hydrant-color-code-table/.

 [wink] . . . . . Just as I suspected!  I knew we couldn't trust California politicians to make anything match up - even California poppies! . . . .  lol(1)

Seriously, thanks Grand for the reference!  [tup]  I was not aware of the color coding scheme for fire hydrants.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

WeatherCat General Discussion / Is data okay? (Re: Graph not beginning at Zero)

Dear Reinhard and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Anyone an idea why this graph (Snowdepth) is not beginning at 0 ("Zero") as all the other parameters do? Why is it going down to -10 while the other parameters accept 0?

Snow isn't anything I know about, so I'll just have to make some guesses.  The first thing I would double-check is that the data is in fact 0.  Is there any chance that your automated snow measuring system is not working properly?

Let us know . . . .

Cheers, Edouard

Shouldn't it be 'drier' not 'dryer'?
Yes, but maybe the Welsh spell it differently than the rest of the UK. Perhaps post-Brexit that will all change. If there is a post-Brexit.
