As of today, I’ve noticed that the data shown in the ‘Hourly Received Reports’ box is working on UTC time, where the data in the ‘Hourly Collection’ box above it is still shown as local time. Per the notice given at the top of the stats page (“NOTE: Hourly data is reported in the site’s local time. Daily data is reported in UTC time.”), it would seem that they should both be shown in my local time - and both of them were up until sometime early today or last night.
This seems to be affecting all sites that I run or friends run in the central time zone, but doesn’t seem to be affecting sites in the Eastern or Pacific time zones when I check the stats for some friends’ sites.
Image linking isn’t working (again) for whatever reason… Here’s a screenshot:
Is this what caused the data to apparently not be taken for an hour at about 04:00 BST (03:00 UTC) too?
Will this affect longest streaks?
Which logs should I examine at my end to find out more info?
I’m using PiAware; just saying in case that matters.
Your maths is wrong. The hourly reports count unique aircraft in the hour. The daily reports count unique aircraft in the day. The same aircraft might be seen in several different hourly buckets across the course of a day, so it’s normal for the sum of hourly aircraft to be greater than the daily number.
(This is also why recalculating the daily numbers is not a trivial exercise - we actually have to reprocess all the data, not just add up the hourly numbers)
Sorry for the confusion. Whatever was the cause appears to be resolved. I’m running a total of six devices. At the time I posted, the graph showing all site showed the line for ‘all sites’ was lower than each of three sites. I posted as it may have been a clue to other issues.
Seems fine now.
Thanks. All your work is much appreciated.
