WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: Graph not beginning at Zero
« Last post by xairbusdriver on May 03, 2019, 11:56:49 PM »
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.

Dear Blick and WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

Happy May Day Weather Catters! Here is the view out my window this morning.

Belated thank you for your picture! [tup]  The first of the month is always a bit overwhelming for me with all the various graphics I need to collect for the predictions posting.

Rain isn't completely out of our forecast but all that is left is more nuisance than benefit.  It is definitely starting the turn from Spring to Summer here in Orinda.  This morning I captured these California Poppies next to a fire plug:



It is a cute natural bouquet, but the pedals are already starting to get a bit ragged around the edges and the nearby grass is already brown.  Yesterday I took this photo of a nearby hillside:



The greens are definitely disappearing and the browns of summer are emerging.  We'll see just how harsh this summer turns out to be.

Cheers, Edouard
