I’m the kind of person who needs to see that’s stuff is working. Preferably at a glance. Especially if it’s an unfamiliar piece of software.
One thing that I have struggled with is the zWave logs… There seems to be 2 settings.
tell me almost nothing (info)
Tell me in excruciating detail that makes it hard to eyeball all about ever messages and the parsing of the messages (debug)
There doesn’t seem to be a lot of difference between debug and trace. It’s more like trace and trace++
Is there a way (Besides bribing the kind person who develops it - although I’m not above buying them a pint if there ever in the same establishment as myself) to have the zWave log inbound and outbound values. e.g.
NODE 13 - SET switch_xyz ON
NODE 13 - switch_xyz RECV POWER 1.4kW
NODE 13 - switch_xyz RECV METER 2.9kWh
or similar… A half way house so I can see what’s being set and read for zWave devices. Without having 40 lines per update as in the current ‘debug’
What it seems you want to see is what is logged in the events log isn’t it?
At the end of the day, debug logging is there for, well, debugging the binding . You might call it trace logging, but there is certainly a lot more detail if you enable trace logging… I don’t want to cut it back so far that it becomes useless for its primary function.
Yeah. I’d wanted them as stats… but sadly it looks like I can’t filter selectively… I’ve removed them now. It looks like I’m seeing inbound packets (Reported in openhab.log) but not in events.log… I need to clean things up a bit to prove it though…
It’s weird. I’ve for devices I can switch on/off but don’t report to me (Watts, kWh etc). And a Fibaro multi-sensor that stopped talking to me today as well, after I managed to get my Qubino 2 relay to talk to be again (By reset and re-include).
Here’s one… A Qubino 2 relay flush switch… Originally it was my Node 3. After a recent power outage it disappeared. Several hours of exclude/include/reset/include & repeat I finally got it to include again. As node 52. I can switch it on & off, but none of the meters (Power) are working…
The lack of updates for the devices isn’t limited to just the QUbino though. It generally seems to be almost across the board. I can get stats for several of the 20+ devices I have… Restarting openhab changes the devices I do get stats for. The actual number varies between 0 - 5 or so that are actually working… It’s a bit weird.
Have you deleted all things and added them back again?
I can’t see anything immediately wrong here - the data is obviously being received, so associations are working. The channel is properly configured, and the data is being processed. I think we probably need to see a log from startup to see what is happening.
Yes, I deleted all my things. And rescanned and added them back from the inbox. The items didn’t get deleted. I re-attached them to the things from PaperUI. Initially things looked ok, but I noticed some devices didn’t update. Lots of messing around, but I just seem to get only a random selection of items ever actually being updated.
I can gather and upload debug logs. No problems. Where would you like them?
