CWOP update rate
« on: November 10, 2017, 02:19:36 PM »
So we have a Vantage View and a Vantage Connect with a five minute update plan. I set up an upload to CWOP but seems like CWOP data is spaced at 20 minute intervals. Is there a way to increase the CWOP update rate to five minutes? I assume this is controlled by Weatherlink as they are doing the uploading. I don't see any setting for this in my account area. Here is the cwop link

so as to not overload the CWOP servers , data should only really be sent every 10 minutes, and a minute that corresponds to the last numbers of your CWOP number, so as to spread the load

Para 1 in http://wxqa.com/faq.html indicates that it can be as little as 5 minutes now.

yes, I do know about that, but just pointing out why weatherlink would be at the update rate it is , as likely it was adhering to the original guidelines
