I have an issue where EMONCMS resets the daily totals to zero at 17:00 MST. This means that daily totals are out of sync. How do I fix this? I’ve set the time zone in my account but that has not changed anything. Any Idea’s? What governs the EMONCMS daily logging?


Welcome, Kirk, to the OEM forum.

The immediate problem is, which EmonCMS? - the one at emoncms.org or the one on your emonPi / your local server / your ISP / your hosting provider?

When we know which, somebody who knows emonCMS will be able to answer you.

Hello @kirkdwilson the power_to_kwhd process on emoncms.org does not align to user timezones but if you use the power_to_kwh process instead to produce a cumulative kWh feed you can then use the method documented here to get timezone aligned daily, weekly and monthly totals Calculating Daily kWh - Guide | OpenEnergyMonitor

I’m using emoncms.org as my service.

Thanks @kirkdwilson are you able to setup your feeds using the power_to_kwh process as I mentioned? That should fix the issue for you.

Dear @TrystanLea here is what I have both on the setup of the line feeds as well as what I see on the graph. Is this what I should expect?

You dont need the wh_accumulator input processor, the kwh process is enough by itself.
The graph looks like its showing power data rather than cumulative kWh data…
I cant quite see which inputs link to each feed in the screenshots above to help much further really and there’s a lot going on there…

This guide 2. Log Locally - Guide | OpenEnergyMonitor and Calculating Daily kWh - Guide | OpenEnergyMonitor cover what I think you need, but I may not be fully following what your trying to do?
