Update interval of internal variables

Post by sebi » Sat Aug 29, 2015 12:34 am

Hello,

it would be nice if the update interval for internal variables (e.g. month1, year1) could be set to times near 00:00 (e.g. 23:30). At the moment month1 is updated at (00:13/06:13/12:13/18:13) and year1 is updated at (4:47) (http://www.weerstation-leuven.be/weathe ... &wp=MH#seq)

or

to let the user choose the preferred update interval of these variables.

Explanation of my wish:

I'am creating a kind of weather data archive with the strftime function. I use a html template to create a table with min/max/mean values of a single month and save it as %m_%G.html (e.g. 08_2015.html). This looks like this:

With the beginning of the next month (here 01.09.2015) a new month-html named 09_2015.html will be created. The old one stays on my FTP and i can use it as an archive file. But the problem is, that the newest min/max/mean values in the 08_2015.html file are from 31.08.2015 18:13. Therefore i will miss the min/max/mean values of the last 6 hours of the month august. Compare the following table (created with the actual variable!) with the table above. You can see that the newest max value for the sealevel pressure is 1024,3 hPa at 20.08.2015 21:48. In the month template this value does not appear because of the "low" resolution of the update interval for month1 (it's still 1023,6 hPa at 20.08.2015 13:32). If it would have been the last day of the month, the max value of 1023,6 hPa would have been lost in the month archive file.

I hope you can change this in your great metehub software, or fix the above mentioned problem otherwise.

Please reply!
