Missing events from scheduler running each hour

Marius shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

I have a scheduler that calls a rule each hour. The rule is used to set state variables to make programming other rules easier.


Currently, I use it to just control two virtual sensors: IsWeekend and TVAllowedToBeOn


The scheduler triggers the rule each hour, exatly on the hour.


But in the event log, I notice that the often an hour is missed. I don't know if it is the calling of the rule (the scheduler) or the setting of the virtual switch that fails.


I created a third virtual device (Switch) which I set to ON each time the rule is called. This has been running for a couple of days now and I see the same thing happen; some hours are just missing... See attached image. Does anybody else experience similar problems?

The problem is still there. This far today, 7 out of 17 calls are missing in the event list

Remove the scheduler and insert a new one from the rule creator.

It might be that if your existing scheduler became somehow corrupt, it will be corrupt even if u use in in another rule.

I've noticed the same scheduler problems. But I also get the impression that the log doesn't always record the changes that happen. So I'm left wondering whether it's just a log problem sometimes.


In the end I made a "master scheduler" rule that runs every minute, and used that to run my other rules. It's much more reliable.

Hello David,


Can you please elaborate a little around your "master scheduler", I'm having a few problems with rules not running randomly and I would appreciate to get some good advices...


Thanks in advance

Still missing about 1/3 of events in the event list.
