Irregular updates ?
« on: October 08, 2019, 03:17:49 PM »
Over the last couple of day's Ive noticed WU has been updating at irregular update times . It's happening ever hour or so .  Yesterday it wasn't updating for 20 to 30 minutes and then would start updating at 10 seconds again . Today it's done this 3 times already and as of now my stations and all the ones around me havens updated for 10 minutes . Maybe a server problem or maybe a lack of server space .

  Has anyone else noticed this ? And yes I looked at all stations in my area not just mine .  Mine shows GREEN Online(updated 10 minutes ago) as of now . Station closest to me shows GREEN Online(updated 11 minutes ago) .

I'm using the same thing and I keep checking the Access splash page just to make sure it wasn't me . So far it's done it twice more since I posted this thread . Makes one wonder what the ( cuss word ) going on at WU !!!

Yes, it's happening right now as well. All stations around me, including mine, are a few minutes late and counting - all of which are rapid-fire. Wondering if it's actually a data ingest issue or a display issue (are the graphs populated later with the data anyway?)

We are suppose to have very high winds today along with really low humidity and WU is updating very irregular today again . Just had to wait  20 minute for the updates to start again .   Not cool WU not cool at all !!! Sure wish someone at WU would kick the server and reset the system so rapid fire  updates would work again .

Well this is interesting.

When I looked at the Weather.com weather map and clicked on "temperature" where the data from all our weather stations pop in, the temps were up to date, where at the same time the temps and other information on the Weather Underground map was still delayed by over half an hour.

My WU page has been acting strange all day. Sometimes it shows no info at all.

My page now says my information was updated 20 years ago.  I'm sure an update every twenty years would be acceptable.  I can't wait until 2039 when it updates again.

Mine has now come back online and immediately stopped updating . Now shows Online(updated 11 minutes ago) !!

Maybe we're watching the final, sputtering, death throws of WU. Who knows, other than the people running it?  After all the hype of "new start" stuff it's been nothing but a debacle.  Maybe it is time for it to be put out of our misery.

Who knows? One thing for sure, if I was to solely rely on WU to display my online data, I'd really be looking for something else. No telling when the proverbial other shoe may drop.

I am thinking that one of the temp "programmers" has a wheel of their chair on a network cord pinching off the flow.

Anyone noticing a pattern to these update slow downs?  It seems to me that it happens in the late morning and early afternoon, EDT.  Early morning, evening and night time seem to be "normal", but from around 11:00 to 15:00 or 16:00 it seems to get rather sporadic for no rhyme or reason.  Make me wonder if the "programmers" are working on things or if some maintenance process, or bottleneck, is involved.

Another anomaly I've noticed is sort of conflicting update times.  I just looked at my station and it said last update was 2 hours ago.  I did a refresh and it changed to 36 minutes ago.  This is really getting stupid and I ran out of popcorn back in July.

In my opinion it's gotten worst today .  Ive had the page open on one of my screens and it's gone to over a hour with no rapid fire updates . Then it will start and slowly update the page work it's way to updating ever 10 to 15 seconds for about a couple of minutes then boom doesn't update for 15 min  to 1 hour later . Plus when I refresh the page it's been signing me out . My unofficial opinion is WU is going down the crapper as we all look at it !!!   I just wish AcuRite would update there Access to send our info someplace else .

I'm really begining to wonder if WU (based in SFO) and the NWS Western Region headquarters (SLC) use the same sever, at least where this is concerned. The reason I say so is I've been going back and forth with the NWS SLC because the "local wx observations" have not been updating properly for several weeks, in this region only....but is now, at the moment. This is what the IT guru has told me just recent....

"We're dependent on this data from another source.  If the source is falling behind, then the data appears old on our page.

Another here....

"Also, something that may be important to you, we're working on transitioning these pages to a new data source that is not depended on our network connection.  I'll let you know when that transition happens."

May be complete coincidence, may not.

Not sure I'd thank WU, but my NWS page has continued to update properly as well. Perhaps they do have something in common.
