Event History During Internet Outage

Post by Zip92 » Sun Dec 01, 2019 6:31 am

My internet was down a few days this week at my remote cabin due to heavy wet snow accumulating on the satellite dish. I went in to check the event history for the week after connection was restored, and there was a gap in the events during the time the internet was down.

Does this make sense? Or should OpticsRE still be able to fetch and read event history while internet is down?

IIRC, if the Mate has an SD card, the history will be uploaded after reconnection, without, it won't.

Thanks Raysun. I’ll put a card in and see if that works.
It would be nice if the graph fetched data from the Mate after an outage as well.
Cheers.

I think the gap will persist, as the card needs to be in place during the outage. It will help for next time.

That is correct, the SD card must be in place with data logging enabled. The OutBack term is "replay files".
