IotaWatt has taken a walk


#1

Apparently, about mid September, my Iotawatt stopped reporting in to EmonCMS. Just noticed this today, so I went out to power cycle it. Before I power cycled it, the activity on the LED suggested that it was still collecting data, even though it was no longer reporting to EmonCMS.

After power cycling it, it didn’t come back all the way. Apparently, it is connecting to my AP, getting an IP, responds to pings, but the LED is steady, suggesting it’s not collecting data.

I connected up to it via USB to see what serial data I could get, and I got the following using 115200 for a baud rate:

(an aside, the data pasted does NOT visually match what secureCRT showed me - there’s a lot of gibberish in what was displayed in SecureCRT)

Trying to browse to the IP Address it received just times out.

Not really sure where the issue is, but is there a way to get it ‘alive’ again without losing the data it logged?

The bad news is that the current log (5 sec intervals) is damaged. The good news is that the history file (60 sec intervals) is probably still fine. There have been a few occurrences of this lately, and the latest release has automatic recovery. Unfortunately you can’t get there from here.

The simplest way to recover is to power down the unit.
Open the unit and remove the SDcard.
Mount the SDcard in another computer.
Delete the file /iotawatt/iotalog.log
Insert the SDcard back into the Iotawatt
Power it back up.

Be careful not to remove or insert the SDcard while the device is powered up.

After you power up, it may take awhile to start working normally. Depending on when the file damage occured, it could take an hour or more. If it really was still logging up until today, it will come back in minutes. If you are in doubt about this, leave the serial connected and post the status. I will be able to tell if it restarted ok.


#3

Welp - that appears to have nuked everything since 9/14. Maybe there’s data it’s ‘reconstructing’ in the background and will send to EmonCMS when it’s done, but looking at the graphing on the IotaWatt, it stops on 9/14. After removing the ‘iotalog.log’ file (which was 1.3GB!) and powering it up, it came up pretty quick. There was another smaller file, which may have been the ‘less granular’ data, which I of course did not touch, so maybe that’s the ‘60 sec intervals’ data that’ll start trickling in. If not, well, shrug, it’s back working, so that’s what is most important. I don;t know for sure that it was still actually logging data, but the LED activity seemed to suggest that it was.

Based on the log file, it appears to be running v02_03_13 - is that the current major release (I assume it is)?


#4

It is. 02_03_16 will become the MINOR release tomorrow. I suggest you upgrade to that.

What you see is what you get. The recovery is complete, and that’s all there was in the history file.

If you look at your Emoncms, it should also stop on or about Sept 14. If you can look at the message log file, I’d be interested in seeing the log from before 9/12 until 9/14. Your system should have upgraded to 02_03_13 on Sept 12. It’s not yet clear if 02_03_13 is just more vulnerable to the damage or if it causes it. Either way, there is both more prevention and detection/recovery in 02_03_16.

Sorry about the data loss. That’s why I’m fast tracking 02_03_16, to minimize that. Most folks will never miss their current log. Even a daily graph is only 120 second resolution, so the history log services all of it.


#5

It is what it is. While it would have been great if at least some of the data from the last few weeks survived and was able to fill in, life on earth won’t end because I lost some energy usage data. Let me know what, if anything, I can send you that might help - I didn’t delete the 1.3GB log file, I just moved it off the SD card - so if that can help, I’d gladly send it to you. It compressed down to 506MB, so I might be able to get it in a dropbox, or if not that, I can most likely work something out.


#6

Thanks. If. You could hold onto it for a few weeks in case I need it that would be fine. I’ve not had much luck with copied and transmitted files. I know that shouldn’t be, but it is. There must be parts of the process that don’t verify.

I’m optimistic that the new release will solve this. Even if it doesn’t, it produces a good diagnostic file from the original file.


#7

Can do. I’ll try to keep an eye on this thread, or PM me if you decide you want it.


#8

Welp… It appears to have done it again. I noticed this AM that it hadn’t been reporting to EmonCMS, so I went and reset it -it’s responding to pings, but the WebUI isn’t working.

Oddly, I started getting a red-green-red led sequence after plugging it bck in, that went away when I plugged the USB into my PC and when I changed the USB cable that’s powering it…

Here’s the serial data from this time:

The red-green-red is an indication that a diagnostic file is being built from a damaged datalog (current or history). That can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or two depending on the file size. I had not updated the troubleshooting section of the wiki with that information, but I have done so now.

Could you look in the /iotawatt directory for a file called /iotawatt/logDiag.txt and post it along with your message log please?

Looking back at the history of your troubles, I would recommend that you get a new SDcard (8mb) or at a minimum reformat the one you have. Save the files in the root directory (not the directories) and place them in the root of the new or reformatted card then restart. The device should work OK.

The logdiag.txt only has:

The iotamsgs.txt is much longer, obviously - here is the portion of that from september until now

I copied the files in the root over to a fresh Sandisk 8GB microSD card and it appears to be back up.


#11

Looking at the most recent log that you posted, your unit never recovered the history file on 10/5. I don’t know what indications you had that it was working. There are messages in the log related to history file damage. The last entry was from 9/14.

I’d like to see your status screen now, with the datalog tab expanded. Both the history and current log should begin when you restarted with the new card, and both should be advancing at their respective rates with current time.


#12

It was reporting back to my EmonCMS server for just shy of one day after the reset on 10/5
Iotawatt1

Here is the Status page:


#13

It does look as if the logging stopped shortly after the upgrade to 02_03_16. The history log was corrupted, and it’s not possible to know if it was there before the upgrade and was detected by 02_03_16, or possibly caused by it. The diagnostic file creation was interrupted by the power cycle and is lost.

I do think everything looks OK now, and should remain so going forward.
