Auto Snapshots Timing with DSLstats 5.0
« on: July 17, 2014, 09:05:53 AM »

I have the graphs set to display a 24 hour period and snapshots to be taken every hour. However when I look at the snapshots it seems that they are being taken every 65 minutes. Are other users seeing this?

PS RaspberryPi version in case it matters.

I can explain this, and it's probably something I need to change. At present, DSLstats checks to see if auto snapshots are due, immediately after each sample. So, if the sample period is 5 minutes, then the check will be made each 5 minutes. In your case the timings are such that you end up with the full 5 minutes added to the time between snapshots.

I've made a note to improve this before the next release.

Thanks for this.

It makes sense to me if snapshots are linked independently to the time rather than through another timed operation. My desired mode of operation is to have graphical snapshots covering a 24 hour period captured at midnight. Other users may differ. I might look at the hourly captures if there are issues but they are eventually discarded. DSLstats is replacing my previous system of a daily text file containing one line of stats every 5 minutes.

Perhaps a system that offers captures per hour (1, 2, 4, 6 or 12) and similarly per day, might be a good option.

Thanks, I'll take those ideas into account.
