Mesonet UK Map not showing Meteobridge Date
« on: June 19, 2018, 04:29:25 AM »

Hi,
I noticed that my stations data was showing N/A on the UK Mesonet map, I also saw a few other stations showing the same so I'm assuming they are also using Meteobridge to forward data.

I completed the latest update but mine and others aren't displaying a reading, any idea what I need to do to resolve this.

You can check the status of the conditions collector for UKWN at https://www.ukwx.net/UKWN-cache.html

Currently, it shows your conditions are being collected OK .. if there's an issue, just click on the + to expand and see the detailed status of the current collection for your station. 

Hope this helps...

Hi Ken,

Good tip about the +, my station is sending out data which is ok, so that's good to know, the problem is that this is not being displayed on the map, ( no white data window under station pin on map).

Any idea what could cause this.

@KEN
The station is correctly showing on the global map not on the UKWN map, probably with european data
The cache https://www.ukwx.net/UKWN-cache.html is from March 30, not from today
The current conditions https://www.ukwx.net/UKWN-conditions.txt do not show that station

@IAN

Are you sure the file you upload is filled with data.
Sometimes after a restart of the Meteobridge the template file can not be read.
The MB accepts the empty response and a completely empty file is uploaded until a correct template file is loaded again..

When I check your file MB_stickertags.txt it contains zero characters.

Try in your Meteobridge: Tab "Services"  click "Reload Template"  for this FTP
Probably it starts uploading data again.

If not your website is https so you must check if your version of the MB is able to access https site for the template-file.

Thanks for taking a look. I've restarted the Meteobridge and will resend the template and see what happens.

I've been in contact with both Wim and Martin (admin for ukwx.net) -- the problem was that Martin had to use a batch schedule process on a PC to run the mesonet collector (and had since March when his hoster was subsumed by another and cron became an extra price option).  That process died, so the collector wasn't being run.

I've temporarily added a remote execution of the collector to the cron process on my site, so now conditions are flowing again on the UKWN.  Status can be checked at https://saratoga-weather.org/UKWN-cache.html

When Martin returns from a trip next week, we'll work out a more permanent solution to running the collector.

Thanks for your patience, and thanks to Wim for stepping in for the diagnostics!

Best regards,
Ken
