We were able to fix the wundermap tonight. Somehow we broke it when we pushed a fix for the subscribed users who were still seeing ads. We’ll continue with the webcams tomorrow. Just to let you know what impact you had, webcams was not even a priority before today and now it is our top priority.

I think the Priority needs to be in the loss of Weather data rather than the Webcam. Weather Data is more important than Webcams.

Posted this on the Trello page too...

Data upload reliability and efficiency are the most important and pressing issues because without data input, you have no site. Sure, webcams are important, but the whole gist of the WU site is wx data.

Davis Vantage Vue ISS running weeWX 3.8.0 only 30%-70% data upload reliability.

From my wunderfixer utility in weeWX:
Date to check: 2018-01-14
Number of weeWX archive records: 288
Number of existing WU records: 191
Number of missing records from WU: 97
(33.7% missing)

Date to check: 2018-01-15 as of 2225 hrs CST
Number of weeWX archive records: 270
Number of existing WU records: 85
Number of missing records from WU: 189
(70% missing)

It could be that other members don't realize this is occurring because they're more interested in their webcams.


This my exact issue.  I am running same version of weewx. And is was working fine before the server issues.

Somebody really fluffed the snowfall forecast a couple of days back.  They were calling for 1-2, maybe 3" in a small region primarily yesterday afternoon into evening.  This morning, I'm seeing totals in excess of 8" reported in a fairly wide area and still falling in some areas.

With Tom Whittaker's generous help (he's the author of HAniS) the problem with some of my HAniS scripts hanging and crashing browsers has been solved.  It turns out that at some point last year he changed a HAniS parameter, 'skip_missing' from 'skip_missing = t \n\' to 'skip_missing = 0 \n\' in order to accommodate the need to skip layers other than the base layer.

The modification of 'wxGOES16-HAniSLoops-iframe.php' required only that simple change in order to allow it to work properly.

I've modified all of my other HAniS iframe scripts that contain 'skip_missing', and they all now work again.

My apologies for not keeping fully abreast of the nuances of HAniS scripting. :oops:

I created an account here today to share my thoughts and experiences.

As with many others my PWS data and weather history graph is only receiving every 5-15 minutes although I can see the "last reported" refresh every 3-10 seconds.

The default temperature keeps reverting back to Fahrenheit on the 10 day forecast, very annoying..
Strangely enough this isn't an issue when using my Samsung S8 w/ chrome but I've noticed it does not save my customise settings when using my phone.

Something I'd like to see in the future is humidity on the history graph data, option to use m/s for wind and the wunderstation for Android.

I really hope the team at WU can address the problems at hand at the moment and I can appreciate the effort so far.

One thought is limiting webcam image uploads to 10 minute intervals.
Also force a disconnect after an upload to prevent users from sitting on a connection. Three servers with 10000 connections, that is 30000 total. Even if it takes 1 minute per upload (should be much less), at 10 minute intervals, that allows 300000 connections. Are there that many web cams?

We had rain overnight (.23). Currently we have sleet with 32.2F and dropping. Winds average 2.2mph with gusts over 6mph.
Tonight it is going to be even colder and the big concern is ice on the roads because of the rain.
People are urged to work from home.

Sean, Thanks for the post. You give me hope the service will be continued.  The webcams seem to go down more when users are checking for snow. I am guessing you don't have the server resources you need for the demand. One thought is limiting webcam image uploads to 10 minute intervals.

My webcam is now showing (via FTP)

I still have a lot of PWS data going missing though - a rough estimate shows 50% of data uploads missing on the graphs.
