I have set the date on my emonpi about a dozen times using the SSH interface, after which it functions fine for a while. It’s when I leave it sit for a few months though that the date changes to some random date in the past. As an energy auditor, I move my equipment around a lot and have several different types of configurations for the inputs/feeds that vary depending on what I’m trying to monitor.
When I’ve let my equipment sit for a while and then temporarily install it a customer’s home that the server date changes. Often I miss this detail and then all of the data gets logged for sometime in the past. Luckily I can take the columnar data and paste it into a spreadsheet and apply a DateAdd() function to those columns and do my graphing accurately. But it sure is a bugger having to do this so frequently.
Attached are some screen grabs of the admin interface and graphing pages. The date when I grabbed these screen shots was January 7th, 2022:
Does anyone know why the date keeps changing to some arbitrary time in the past?
