First off, allow me extend a huge appreciation towards Dekay and his
blog at http://www.google.com/url?sa=D&q=http://
. I am a senior meteorology student at Texas A&M
University, and absolutely love my Vantage Vue, but there was no way I
could justify to myself spending another $150 for a piece of silly
hardware. With his directions and guidance, I was successfully able to
build an interface that is working fantastically! Big round of
applause. Secondly, thank you Mark Teel for developing such a solid
software to do all the grunt work, and for free. I can not appreciate
it enough. Once again, software was gonna be another big hit in the
pocket book, and building open source software to do this for me was a
huge help. Ok so enough with the sucking up (No seriously though,
Wview is doing a superb job of reading the current conditions and
building html/images, FTPing and all that good stuff. You can view the
site at http://www.tantonweather.com
. However, it is not building the
charts, or as far as I can tell, anything that would rely on the
archive. After playing with sqlite3 and digging further, I cannot see
where the archive is working at all. They syslog is also giving me the
classy "vproRunState: retrying archive record..." error. Now, it
should be noted, that the interface I use is a home built interface,
NOT the davis datalogger. It communicates great with the device, but
does not have an archive buffer between the console and my computer. I
understand the reasoning for having it etc. But my main goal is have
my home server just digest the data 24/7 and build that archive.
Is there anyway to tell wview to stop looking for the archive, and
simply build its own from scratch using just the current conditions?
From what I've read, this is what wview does with some of the other
stations that lack a logger. That would be ideal for my application.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
