WeatherCat Integration / Re: Custom graphs anomaly

Well it does not look like another station on the same channel as that would not affect the internal readings, and the fact that it jumps to a constant value.

I can't think what could be the cause at the moment.... Over to the WC'ers!

There is another Vantage Pro station about 400 meters away, but I doubt the RF signal is strong enough to interfere. There certainly could be interference on the WIFI network as there are a number of devices connected. I extend the network via a combination of Apple Airport Express and Tenda P200 PowerLine Mini Adapters. The ethernet physical layer coexists with the house 120VAC wiring. I've attached a screen shot of a graph with the anomaly.

Thanks for your responses.

Your screen shot shows several actual windows open, so they should be in that list. I think the ones that you have marked as "not visible" can be eliminated from the list by simply clicking them and then clicking the red close button or using command-W. I think you will see the list shorten each time you go through the 'window closing' procedure. I think they will remain closed until WC is restarted.

I was not aware of these opened but invisible windows and have no idea why they should be around, but there may be some reason the Dev is handling them in this manner. Just another task to remember when WC is started, at least if you are running short of RAM or they are causing memory leaks.

Dear WeatherCat shutterbugs,

We have been having so much rain in Northern California that the sun has been unusually scarce.  It felt more like living in Seattle than the San Francisco Bay area!  Today we finally had a sunrise that wasn't either completely cloudless or completely clouded over.  As a result, I managed to capture this shot:



We are expecting more rain tomorrow and Tuesday though.  I can't complain, but there are plenty of Californians who getting fed up with all the soggy weather. 

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Dear rnbryan, Mark, Blick, and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

Let me also welcome you to the WeatherCat forum!

. .  .
There has been, however, an interesting anomaly in the temperature graphs. I'm graphing both interior and exterior temperature at the console as well as a remote temperature sensor in my greenhouse. After being in operation for 42 days, all three temperature graphs showed four square pulses superimposed on the curve. There were three pulses each lasting 2 hr and one pulse lasting a little over 1 hr, each pulse following the other with a 30 minute interval. It looked like a square wave was superimposed on the graphs. The amplitude of the pulse varied with the channel. After the last pulse, the graph reverts to normal. This episode has occurred three times since installation January 1, 2019. The pulse does not coincide with the temperature reported in the WeatherCat Controller. So this anomaly is a signal superimposed on the data channel at the graph.

If Mark's suggestion doesn't solve your problem, could you please take a screen-shot of the graph and post it for us to take a look at it?  There are details in the graph that might allow us to zero-in on possible causes which cannot be imagined simply from your description.

Once more welcome,

Cheers, Edouard

As this is your first post, welcome to the forum, rnbryan.

I like Mark's suggestion as a place to start. I also use the Davis WeatherLinkIP™ Data Logger here. And although I am in a fairly remote mountainous area with very few neighbours, when I first installed the data logger I had to play with transmitter IDs in order to maintain a good connection. And then it worked fine for a couple of years. Then I had to experiment with moving my console to a different location on my home network. Eventually it liked whatever I did and has worked fine ever since.

You are correct Reinhard. And I can't remember if it was on this forum or the development forum, but this windows behaviour was reported to Stu last year, so I know he is aware of it.

Wild guess, you have a neighbour with a station on the same channel and you are flipping between your sensors and theirs? Changing your ISS channel would eliminate this possibility.

WeatherCat Integration / Custom graphs anomaly
« Last post by rnbryan on March 08, 2019, 08:39:26 PM »
When I installed a new 21.5" iMac, Davis Instruments WeatherLInk for Mac OS no longer ran. I had been using the standard data logger to periodically upload the Vantage Pro 2 to my old iMac. So I invested in a WeatherLinkIP data logger and connected the output with an ethernet cable to an Apple Airport Express on my local network. After installing WeatherCat 3.0.4 I was pleased to see it running flawlessly. I am not uploading to a web page but using it to monitor my local weather and remote agricultural sensors. The data logger interval is set to 1 minute, so the curves are smooth. There has been, however, an interesting anomaly in the temperature graphs. I'm graphing both interior and exterior temperature at the console as well as a remote temperature sensor in my greenhouse. After being in operation for 42 days, all three temperature graphs showed four square pulses superimposed on the curve. There were three pulses each lasting 2 hr and one pulse lasting a little over 1 hr, each pulse following the other with a 30 minute interval. It looked like a square wave was superimposed on the graphs. The amplitude of the pulse varied with the channel. After the last pulse, the graph reverts to normal. This episode has occurred three times since installation January 1, 2019. The pulse does not coincide with the temperature reported in the WeatherCat Controller. So this anomaly is a signal superimposed on the data channel at the graph. Does anyone have ideas how this happens?

Just did a few tests and I am surprised: If they are visible or not, some windows are open or at least 'in action'. Take a look at the Windows menu of WeatherCat and you will see some windows open but not visible - at least for me. And if you close them or not - after a restart of WeatherCat they are present again in the Windows Menu. And I can confirm that the memory stress is lower when some of this windows are closed.
Update: The 'not visible' marked windows are not visible but still active until I check them within this menu and close them by the red button... and after restart they are back again.
