Hi Scott,

I just upgraded to version 2.8.1 (from 2.7.8). I noticed one piece of functionality that I liked is no longer in 2.8.1. When selecting 'Export Results', 2.8.1 does not open a webpage to the Mersenne site to submit the results as was done in previous versions. Can I get this back by changing a setting? In any event, I'd appreciate getting this functionality back.

Thanks,

-- Rich

Please grab MISFIT_2.8.2_TEST.zip and see if that works for you.

Default Improvements to the Event Scheduler

There are some significant changes coming to the Event Scheduler.

1. Events can now contain wildcards for both the DAY and the HOUR component. This dramatically cuts down on the number of entries required in the scheduler. In the past uploading results six times a day was 42 entries. Now it can be done with just six entries. Uploading every day/hour at 15 minutes past the hour can now be done with one line.

2. Additional schedules (override schedules) can be stored in files and can be loaded on demand. This allows you to have a special schedules without changing the default schedule configuration. An override schedules just replaces the in-memory schedule and is immediately active. You can unload a schedule to put back the default scheduler or simply load a different schedule file to implement anything you want. File based schedules can use minute values from 0 to 59 whereas the UI shows 15 minute interval.

3. There is no longer an option to "Upload Results" using the hourly timer which was built long before the scheduler was. Now the scheduler is in charge of UPLOAD_RESULTS. The default values for UPLOAD_RESULTS will be every six hours.
*,00:50,UPLOAD_RESULTS
*,06:50,UPLOAD_RESULTS
*,12:50,UPLOAD_RESULTS
*,18:50,UPLOAD_RESULTS

4. The old schedule section from your existing MISFITconfig.txt is not compatible with the new vision and you will have re-define your schedules. However uploads will default to what is specified in item 3 so that the new version won't leave schedule-less.

5. It is up to you to ensure scheduled events and do not collide. (no running more than one event within the same minute)


Why am I doing this? I am resolving my desire to have Duty Cycles (On/Off) as a feature right in MISFIT. So if I want to run my space heater HOT I'll have zero scheduled STARTS/STOPS. If want to run WARM I'll schedule STARTS at the :00 minute of each hour and the STOPS at the :30 minute of each hour. For those who remember last year's discussion of using my PCs as space heaters in the bedrooms and knowing the overnight temps will determine which Duty Cycle I load.

Please comment if you have other ideas regarding the scheduler.

Beta version activated; first scheduled upload is in five minutes.

...and now the first upload has successfully completed. Working as expected.

There appears to be some sort of problem; after the first automatic upload, no more uploads took place. After three hours the results continued to accumulate and there was no attempt to send any more results. I did a manual export and everything was uploaded. I will continue to watch.

In the attached image you can see I have an hourly schedule for UPLOADING_RESULTS and the logs showing it works. However I have not tried where the entire schedule exists of one single entry. Which I am testing now. We'll see what happens.

My schedule says "default" if that makes any difference.
