WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: Weather Cat 3.0.4 using + 7 GB memory
« Last post by Blicj11 on February 22, 2019, 03:58:29 PM »
WeatherCat gradually uses more memory during a month. After it processes month-end, it releases some memory it no longer needs but until another program actually requires that RAM, it may show as being used by WC but it is, in fact, available for another program to use.

WeatherCat is not using the memory according to Activity. With only weather cat open, WC is using 244MB and applications is 2.2Gb but total memory is 7.31Gb. This thread probably need mover form WeatherCat bug

WeatherCat General Discussion / Weather Cat 3.0.4 using + 7 GB memory
« Last post by N4KHQ on February 22, 2019, 03:03:25 PM »
I had been having problems for several months around the time WU was having server issues with FTP data not being uploaded after a couple of days and having to restart WeatherCat.  Around the first of the year, I started rebooting the Mac running Mojave 10.14 every night. WeatherCat has function flawless for over 2 months except for one time.However the mac is used occasionally by my wife gets very slow and the spinning beach ball for several seconds. When this happens I noticed WeatherCat is using 7+ Gb of my 8 Mb of memory. I just realized this was a memory issue with WeatherCat, CUP % was all I had checked. It probably is caused another application running. CleanMyMac 3 and now CleanMyMac X has been running in the background but the application was not open. Safari, Mail, Photos, Word 2011 and Excel 2011 is about the only thing that every get open on the mac. I will monitor it today, it is ok after restart but the computer had been restarted 5 hours earlier. Any thoughts on what I should check.

I love it when a WeatherCatter sorts out a puzzle. Good work, Staze.

Thanks for this info Edouard; I didn't know about this security feature on the new Macs as I don't have one. Yet.

okay, fixed data.

This reminded me of how much my old WS-2316 sucked. I remember bugging stu a lot asking for LWC to have sanity checks for data coming in (occasionally temps would be out of bounds, etc).

Here's an example of the data: https://pastebin.com/XrK7wWpE

Export was generated just via "All Data" file WC Data export. Did 5 minute intervals.

The data looks "valid" except for the rain data being weird. With some help from some Excel friends, I was able to fix the data I think...

WeatherCat Integration / Export details? (Re: Weird rain data from old station)
« Last post by elagache on February 22, 2019, 12:31:09 AM »
Dear Staze and WeatherCat troubleshooters,

I did a 5 minute export from WC for all time, and for all the data from my previous weatherstation (LaCrosse 2316), the "precipitation total" number seems to be a climbing total that resets every so often (I can't figure out any pattern). Is there any way to re-normalize the data in WC (so it's all just daily totals) (@WCDev)?

Could you provide us with a few more details of how you did this?  Did you create a tab delimited file?  Could you give us a sample of what the data looks like when you were using your LaCrosse station and what it looks like with the Davis station?  Also, could you take a quick look at the data files themselves?  You'll find them in your Library folder.  Here is the UNIX path:

~/Library/WeatherCatData/Location1/2011

The ~ refers to the path to your home directory.  I picked 2011 as a sample year it is the last directory of the path - change for other years..  If you look in those folders there are text files with the data collected by WeatherCat.  I'm wondering if the data is somehow corrupted.  There are comments at the top of the files to tell you what to look for.  By all means don't edit these files, you just want to view them!  If you want to be extra cautious, you could make copies of the files and look only at the copies.  They will open with TextEdit or your favorite text editor.

Let us know if you spot anything unusual.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

I found the issue... but I don't know how to fix it. =/

WeatherCat Integration / Weird rain data from old station (crosspost from Meteotemplate)
« Last post by staze on February 21, 2019, 05:26:37 PM »
I'm not sure if this is going to get an answer here, or somewhere else, but I'm confused by this.

I had exported my data out of weathercat and imported into Meteotemplate. I THOUGHT everything was good, but looking at my rain analysis, something is clearly wrong. I previously had a LaCrosse 2316 station, and it worked great with Weathercat and before that Lightsoft Weather Center. I got my Davis Vantage Vue in Sept of 2013, after which point, my data looks solid.

Anyone have any thoughts about what the heck is going on? I don't think it's some mm->inches thing since even with that, there's no way I got nearly 840" of rain in 2011/2012.
