Inputs and Feeds Lost

(pu43x) #1

It seems that at 1am this morning my emonPi stopped reporting any values from the 4 sensors that I’ve got setup.
When I go to feeds, they all say nothing received for X hours (x being the number of hours passed since 1am). I find it odd that all sensors went out at the exact same time. All the available inputs are also marked with n/a.

Unfortunately, I rebooted the pi after I did some research and found that would wipe any logs stored in RAM… I’ve also search on these forums to see if others have experienced this issue and I can’t find anything.

If it helps these are the logs from the webgui.

The things I’ve tried:

  1. Checked the time of the pi, all seems fine (people mentioned this in some forum posts being a problem).
  2. rebooted the pi and sensors around the house

Not sure what else I could check, it seems the receiver isn’t picking up any signals, could that have gone? How do I check thats working correctly?

(Trystan Lea) #2

Hello @pu43x, did your inputs list ‘unsupported’ tags prior to this happening? there was an issue with this effect recently following running emonpi update. Is there any chance that an update was somehow initiated?

Could you copy and paste the info in Administration > Server Administration here, using the copy to clip board feature.


(pu43x) #3

Hey, thanks for replying. The last time I checked which was only 19 days ago as I added 2 more temp sensors it all looked fine.
I’m not entirely sure what happened at 1am this morning but I didn’t upgrade prior to that I think. It just runs and has done pretty solid for nearly 2 years now.

Below is the dump of the system information.

Thanks for the server information. If you still see the ‘unsupported’ messages on your input list, could you try clearing your browsers cache?

It might also be worth running emonpi update again. Is it an emonpi or an emonbase, your nodes in the input list suggest an emonbase?


(pu43x) #5

Hey, Thanks. Cleared my cache and that removed the “unsupported” tag.

You’re correct, I do have the emonBase, I’ve just run the update and below is the latest System Information. Is there any way I can check if it’s able to receive anything. It’s just odd that all nodes have dropped out.

Great, Did you run the emonbase update rather than the emonpi one? I assume the inputs and feeds are still not updating?


(pu43x) #7

Hey, you, I ran the emonbase update and it completed correctly.

Inputs and feeds are still not updating.


(Trystan Lea) #8

Good to hear emonbase update completed correctly. Do you see any more activity than what you copied above in emonhub.log? (Setup > EmonHub > view log)


(pu43x) #9

So I checked this evening and 3 out of 4 sensors were correctly updating, I noticed that the emontx3 actually needed it’s batteries replacing, it had been going for 649 days! Unsure why this could have caused the others to stop reporting though…

Everything is back up and running, thanks for your help. I monitor the power for all the emonth’s but it doesn’t look like there is a feed for the battery power on the emontx. Bottom left of the screenshot below.

Turns out that the root cause could have just been the battery running out on the emontx… Still unsure why this would knock out the other sensors.

Thanks for your help. :slight_smile:


(Trystan Lea) #10

Great to hear you have it working again! At which point did the emonth’s start working again? was it after the update or prior to that? 649 days is a good run! :slight_smile:


(pu43x) #11

It was after the update. But I didn’t notice it immediately, only tonight.
