Writing software which ensures short term gusts are not missed
« on: February 20, 2021, 12:37:07 PM »
In extreme wind conditions, the duration of gusts can be very short, typically much less than 1 second.  How can software be designed to avoid missing gusts?  For example, if my software is designed to continuously monitor wind speed but also periodically do some mean and max calculations and append a record to a database, how can I write my software to be sure that during the time it's doing the calculations and database append, no short duration gusts are missed?  By the way, I'm writing my code in Python and running it on a Raspberry Pi.
