Debug.log

From CumulusWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The debug.log file is extremely useful in troubleshooting problems with Cumulus and/or connectivity to your weather station.

By default this is not enabled, but can be turned on and off as required. Click on the Configuration menu within Cumulus and tick the 'Debug Log' menu option.

The file contains a wealth of data inlcuding the raw data received from your weather station, connectivity attempts, file uploads, etc.


Note: the file can grow very large very quickly so turn the Debug Log option off it not required. If the file grows too large it can cause Cumulus to crash.


File Format

The debug.log file is a simple text file containing the time and a description of each event.

It is located in the root of the Cumulus folder and can be deleted at any time as Cumuls does not read from it.
