From my understanding, if the IotaWatt losses the wi-fi signal it would continue monitoring power and saving it in the SD card.
I have some questions:
Will the unit upload data to influx once the wifi connection is restored? (Just trying to confirm)
If the backlog is large, how will data be uploaded? At what rate?
Why could the unit stop saving data when the wifi connection is lost?
Here’s the relevant info about this case:
Last data points are on November 20 at 17:27:30. From the CSV output:
2018-11-20 17:27:20, 1078.7
2018-11-20 17:27:25, 1086.8
2018-11-20 17:27:30, 1090.3
2018-11-20 17:27:35, null
2018-11-20 17:27:40, null
2018-11-20 17:27:45, null
Data started getting logged again on November 26, 16:30:10, once the wifi access point was restored and the IotaWatt reset.
2018-11-26 16:30:00, null
2018-11-26 16:30:05, null
2018-11-26 16:30:10, 1271.2
2018-11-26 16:30:15, 1284.8
2018-11-26 16:30:20, 1280.1
The message log shows the wifi disconnection on November 20 at 17:27:31 so it makes sense, but again, I would expect logging to continue with no wifi. The log also shows the unit reset a few minutes before:
11/20/18 22:04:54z Reset reason: Exception
(This is 17:04:54 local time.)
I’m adding a short version of the log file.

Thanks a lot!
