automatic update not enabled?

Dec 17, 2012 at 3:40 PM

Hi, I'm running your code for three days now, and it connects to PVoutput nicely. The only thing is is that it doesn't connect automaticcaly the next day. I need to unplug it first, then it start sending data every five minutes. How come, any idea?

Where are you located? My first reaction is a timezone issue...

Thanks for speedy reply. Just around the corner, in The Netherlands. Where do I set timezone?

Output does state correct time:

Timezone is fixed at GMT+1. PvOutput only logs values >0. So if your system is not producing, you will see no updates.

Dec 17, 2012 at 6:13 PM

Sure, but if it is producing, like in day time, it doesn't send until I unplug and reboot the Arduino.

Does the logging stop exactly at midnight?

Does the webpage still load when there is no upload?

If so, can you show a dump here?

Dec 17, 2012 at 7:13 PM

Can I send you private message with link to pvoutput? then you see how nicely your prog works, once started...

Your data is public anyway so you can put your systemname here.

I see... makes sense. System is called Sterrenbank 

On Saturday the S0 count configured, utp connection established. Late in the day a reboot after finalizing wiring, with a jump from 15:10 to 17:35.
Sunday waiting for it to pop-up but didn't till after messing with the network. 
Today the very same, no data until I force a reboot at 16:30.

What do you make of that?

See what it does tomorrow, I haven't touched anything. Arduino is locally accessible through private network, as is the power invertor. The 0.446 kWh that got reported in at 16:30 after the power off/on of the Arduino seems to be today's total. So logging (on the SD(?)) seems to work fine, how about the networking..?

Networking is fine. At this moment your system is logging zero's. This can be seen if you compare your system with another one (mine in this case):

Strange thing here is that the arduino did a reset of the day counter at 16:35.

Well, won't touch it today again, seems to work nicely.
