PVOutput Logging seems to have stopped

Not sure why but PVoutput logging has been stopped and won’t restart after soft reset or power cycle.

Any ideas ? Log below.

Thanks

Anything unusual happen 8/7/19 at 12:35? Can you post the log from that time?

There is a new release in the works that has more robust error reporting and retry. In the meantime you can set the historyupload date to the next day and restart. You will have a half-day hole that can be backfilled up until 8/21 or November if you become a donator.

Looks like there were some internet drop outs a few days earlier but at that time it just stopped.

I set the history upload date to the next day and restarted and now have all my data up to date in PVoutput.

All good now and will wait for new version but still a mystery why it stopped.

Hopefully that should shed some light on it. There are some additional error responses now documented in the PVoutput help. There were three scheduled restarts about a month ago and I suspect there have may have been some changes, so I need to figure out if anything changed that could cause this and if the new error retry will handle it.

Had another stop on PVoutput today. We did have an internet outage at the same time and it looks like it did not recover when the internet came back u. Its still stopped, only just noticed as I was getting my Influxdb working again on the Raspberry.
