Long Term Data Collection
I had an interesting failure yesterday. Something somewhere stopped working and my data stopped being recorded. I have no idea if my devices stopped sending or Pachube stopped receiving but something stopped working. This chart illustrates it:
The ... part is where data was not being saved. So, there was a period of several hours where data just disappeared into a black hole. My little devices don't have enough storage to hold something like that so I don't have a clue what went wrong. Oh well, it's not like I can't interpolate the actual usage from experience, but it really is annoying.
