  • Enhanced Maximum Uptime Discussion

    The ZIP containing the script is located here:

    Real courage is not securing your Wi-Fi network.

    I've completely re-written this script from scratch.
    The resulting file is one third the size of the previous version and runs much more quickly. Recurring triggers down to 5 seconds have been successfully tested.

    Includes all of the options and functions of previous versions as well as adds a few more.
    - Tracks Current Uptime in real time
    - Optionally tracks Previous run Uptime per session
    - Optionally tracks Overall maximum uptime in real time
    - Optionally tracks Maximum no fault uptime in real time
    - Optionally tracks Maximum faulted uptime per session
    - Optionally tracks Average Homeseer runtime (Real time or per session)
    - Optionally records session logs for analysis (perhaps with Excel)
    - Current time device status can be used to delay triggering of events after Homeseer startup for a predefined period of time

      For the benefit of anyone using this, I've just realized there may be a small error in my calculations when using the Running Average (dynamic) option.
      I've either got to simulate a few sessions or wait until HS crashes on me to be sure. If history repeats itself, HS won't last much longer before I need to restart anyway.
      If I prove to be right about this I'll fix the problem in the next day or so.
      Session averaging (the original method) is not affected.
      Also, I didn't like the "(running average)" text in the string so I'll be removing that.

        Couldn't sleep last night knowing the problem existed, so I stayed up and fixed my faux pas. I found a possibility of writing to non existent devices when certain combinations of devices were selected as well.
        It's all fixed.
        If you downloaded this script in the last couple of days, all you need do is replace the Maximum Uptime.vb file in your scripts directory. This can be done while HS is running without interruption.

        The dynamic average uptime will now be accurate.

          Will it never end?
          A forced shutdown revealed a problem with Maximum No Fault time.
          Fixed as of now. Simply replace the .vb file and you're good.

              The script currently updates the Max NoFault time when the current time manages to exceed it. I realized today this might not actually be desirable, as, when HS subsequently crashes, this max no fault time will not actually be accurate any longer. In effect Faulted and NoFault times would end up being the same value on restart. I've fixed this and will likely post tomorrow. Other than that, I think it's a done deal.

                Yes; I had a reboot at 3 AM this morning and the up time was not recorded. Not an issue.

                Today disabling HSTouch server on a lark to see what my run time will be with V.60.

                Side note:

                We had temps here down to around 33F over night. That said though we moved the two larger plants (in > 100lb pots) indoors around midnight last night.

                I still have one ladder endeavor that I want to complete before we start to get snow here. This is moving the Davis weather station up to roof level.

                  Which time wasn't recorded? The previous or the max faulted? I've had many restarts lately and haven't noticed that type of problem.
                  The more info the better because I want to be sure this is working properly before I move on to other projects.
                  Do you have the required lines in startup.txt and shutdown.txt?

                    It looks like the current up time and previous up time didn't update when HS rebooted at 3 AM.

                    Sorry Greg; just noticed everything is configured in the INI now. Will update. I didn't read the readme and had all of about 3 minutes to install yesterday (WAF thing).
                    Updated the two machines just now. I also just disabled HSTouch on machine #1 and restarted it to test out V.60 without HS Touch server running.

                    Yes I left everything the same just dropping the new script in place. (per your instructions earlier and I was in a rush yesterday?)

                    Attached is a snapshot of the variables, INI file and start/shutdown scripts.

                    Maxuptime ini file shows: (BTW current is correct but not reflected in variable).

                    Faulted=True
                    Edited INI file such that it shows:

                      I think perhaps something is missing. Perhaps you updated from an earlier version than intended. My config looks like:
                      Code:
                      [Configuration]
                      CurrentDC = S1 
                      PreviousDC = S2
                      MaxOverallDC = 
                      MaxNoFaultDC = S3
                      MaxFaultDC = S4
                      MeanTimeDC = S5
                      EnableHSLog = False
                      EnableHistLog = True 
                      RunsToAverage = 10
                      MinSaveTime = 180
                      EnableTime = 10
                      RunningMean = True
                      [Data]
                      HSVersion=2.5.0.60
                      CurrentTime=10/6/2012 10:11:29 AM
                      Faulted =True
                      Current =0 Days 18 Hours 12 Minutes 54 Seconds
                      MaxOverall =5 Days 13 Hours 34 Minutes 21 Seconds
                      MaxFAULT =5 Days 13 Hours 34 Minutes 21 Seconds
                      MaxNoFault=0 Days 17 Hours 23 Minutes 24 Seconds

                      NumRuns =5
                      The original file from the zip:

                      Code:
                      [Configuration]
                      CurrentDC = S1 
                      PreviousDC = S2
                      MaxOverallDC = 
                      MaxNoFaultDC = S3
                      MaxFaultDC = S4

                      MeanUpTime =
                      NumRuns =1
                      You also need in startup.txt:
                      Code:
                        ' Max Uptime
                        hs.Transmit "System Performance Current UpTime","Off"  
                        hs.RunScriptEX "Maximum Uptime.vb","FirstRun",""
                      and in shutdown.txt

                      Code:
                        'MaxUptime
                        hs.RunScriptEX "Maximum Uptime.vb","LastRun",""
                      .
                      .
                      EDIT:
                      AND I've just noticed another problem. In startup, use the device code, not the device name. In my case, this will be hs.Transmit("S1","Off)
                      I'll update the docs on that. Sorry.
                      .

                          OK. Look at the config while HS is running. The "Faulted" key should be reading "True"

                          Note, the MinSaveTime key will prevent the Max and average devices being updated until HS has been running for at least, in this case, 180 minutes.

                          Re: The error. That's a bad habit of mine too. I seldom if ever use VB. I'm strictly vb dot net.

                            Need to update HS box #2. Think I will add the rest of the maxuptime variables to the status page.

                              Just noticed that I also had an uptime.ini file in config directory. I want to save my old max uptime numbers.

                              BTW I have kept the old script name of: MaximumUptime.vb instead of using the newer script name of: Maximum Uptime.vb (non issue eh?)

                              Copied over the data from that INI file to the new ini file first; then removed it.

                              [Configuration]
                              CurrentDC = Y40
                              PreviousDC = Y41
                              MaxOverallDC = Y42
                              MaxNoFaultDC = Y43
                              MaxFaultDC = Y44
                              MeanTimeDC = Y45
                              EnableHSLog = False
                              EnableHistLog = True
                              RunsToAverage = 5
                              MinSaveTime = 180
                              EnableTime = 5
                              RunningMean = True

                              Going back to HSPro box and doing the same; IE: copying the data from uptime.ini file over to maxuptimeini file.

                              Shut down HSPro box and edited INI file and restarted.
