Lost connection between WeeWX and VP2
« on: May 05, 2021, 02:35:23 PM »
WeeWx ver 4.3
Davis Pro2 connecting via Meteobridge (TP Link 3020)
Last Saturday & Sunday was a period of network and power outages. The RPi running WeeWx lost network connection Saturday & was not corrected until Sunday. Meteobridge was stopped & restated Sunday, but it had maintained power & network during my other problems.

After all the hardware was back on line, I restarted WeeWX and watched the log until it reached the
"Starting backfill of daily summaries .."

I though all was back to normal but it reached :

May  3 07:47:58 mcgee weewx[1497] INFO weewx.manager: Added record 2021-05-02 08:15:00 EDT (1619957700) to database 'weewx'
May  3 07:47:59 mcgee weewx[1497] INFO weewx.manager: Added record 2021-05-02 08:15:00 EDT (1619957700) to daily summary in 'weewx'

May  3 07:48:13 mcgee weewx[1497] ERROR weewx.drivers.vantage: LOOP try #3; error: timed out

I cannot get WeeWX to retrieve any more data from the console. I know the console is still collecting data because I have loaded records into Weatherlink 6.0.3 -- including data before and after 2021/05/02 08:15 where WeeWX stops reading. When I restart WeeWX now I get the normal initializing messages and then :

May  5 14:18:36 mcgee weewx[8086] INFO weewx.engine: Using binding 'wx_binding' to database 'weewx'
May  5 14:18:36 mcgee weewx[8086] INFO weewx.manager: Starting backfill of daily summaries
May  5 14:18:39 mcgee weewx[8086] INFO weewx.engine: Starting main packet loop.


It then starts generating the normal reports but it never backfills any missing data and does not get current records.

Where do I look now? I have powered done the VP2 console & restarted that and also the Meteobridge.

Thanks.
