Is it just me who is finding that the new rapid fire option seems to be somewhat intermittent?
I’m finding it stops working after a few hours (actually might be less since I don’t sit and watch it)
Everything else in WD seems to carry on as normal, ie normal Wunderground updates, FTP updates etc, but when I close WD it crashes and I get an error message. Restarting WD makes rapid fire work again for a time. I’m currently running the 10.32k debug version to capture more information when it crashes.
check under view, program error log,when it stops
and you most likely will have lots of errors with the connection to wunderground
which points to a intermitant internet connection problem that you have
i have not had it stop myself
i will check on how i have some flags set, and i might just have to reset a flag every now and then
i know kojack reports it stops for him too, and a restart of wd is needed
but that is the only other report i know of, so i would say its a internet connection thing and it just gets out of sunc too many times and a flag to try again never gets set again
Thanks for the reply, I just looked in the program error log and see no errors at all, Rapid fire had stopped. The internet connection here is very reliable in my experience. On attempting to shut down WD this time, it wouldn’t, and I had to terminate it which means I didn’t get the debug error log, but what usually happens is that it crashes on shut down. These events only started when I updated to try the rapid fire option.
I have noticed that lately WD fails to close when I save&exit the program and I have to use task manager to kill it.
But everytime I check RF it seems to be working so not sure if this is related or not. How are you able to tell RF has stopped updating? I find nothing in my programerrorlog.txt or ftp log. How do you find out if RF stopped updating and what time it went down?
Stopped again last night at 0400 GMT. Checked data on my WU page and by keeping the main WU upload at 15 min intervals you can see when the RF stops.
Tabular data shows this: http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=ILAURENC1
Closed down WD and rebooted. All OK again.
When I exit WD (save and exit) get a screen message indicating WD not closed and settings may be lost, but not showing in task manager and I click the message to close.
Have upgraded to 10.32p from your zip. Many thanks.
Got this again when I exited WD for the new upload. The only thing that may have been running in the background was RFire which didn’t show in taskmanager.
i have no idea why the WU is stopping for you, it must be something to do with your internet connection or firewall or something like that
the exit error points to the davis request data still trying to get data as the program is closing…but i have supposed to have shut down all the timers…
10.32p i have a delay added to the shut down so that things can finish
I checked my RF for yesterday and today and do not see any gaps in the data, always at 2 or 3 minute updates versus the 15 minute normal updates, so no breaks in the updates for me. However, while updating to 32p WD still failed to exit cleanly. Not sure if that rules out RF as a cause or not…
I have mine set at 5 seconds, realtime seems to refresh more frequently than that but my records are being recorded at every 5 mins as well… Maybe they decided that recording every 2 mins hard data was a bit much?
