As 02_03_07 gets burned in on ALPHA, I’ve been experiencing some WiFi dropout and exceptions on my home system. I narrowed it down to be aggravated by the Emoncms postings, but could not identify anything in particular about that. There was nothing unusual about the Emoncms transactions, but I had a MBTF of about 12 hours for a few days. The IoTaWatt did a restart after two hours, and it recovered flawlessly, so I never lost any data as a result of the problems,
In the process of working the issue, I got around to adding the start/stop, begin date, and status menu so the Emoncms is now just like influxDB. I also reduced the memory footprint by getting rid of a bunch or String class data and changing to char*.
I’m burning in this new code, and the problems appear to have gone away. Nobody reported the problem and all of the other test systems have been running without incident for nearly a week. As soon as I burn this new code for a few days I’ll put out another ALPHA.
