  1. Hi all, I see that some users have downloaded Z-wave monitor script and I think it could be a good idea to share our data and know-how to optimize our Z-wave performance. In my case I have manage to reduce Z-wave traffic from average of event per 1.7 sec. to 4.8 sec (24 hours monitoring, 78 physical devices, 382 IDs), but I don't know if this is a good number. It will be interesting if anyone could share an average of his system. That way we can compare and might be to achieve the right number and stable performance which may be could prevent Z-wave freeze in the future. I think average of Z-wave traffic somehow depends on number of the devices in the system and again I believe we need team work to find correct formula for that. Few users have shared with me that they have found devices, which "bombarding" the traffic with unnecessary reports and they fixed the issue. It could be very helpful to all of us to share our solutions and fixes... we all can learn from others If you think it could violate your privacy, please ignore this message... Thank you

    Z-wave monitor

    Version 3.0


    This scene monitors and catches Z-wave commands traffic between controller and devices. The data displayed to user as a table which includes total commands and their properties per device, in addition same data displayed at graphical chart and shows system activities over the time. Since Z-wave protocol is not a fastest one (in many case it's just freeze) this code helps to analyze the data and to take necessary actions to reduce overall Z-wave traffic and system load. Scene functionality 1. This is not an auto started scene. You need to start it manually. While the scene is running, you can switch views between table/chart and monitor (follow instructions on screen). 2. User configurable parameters are: gVar = true-- Create and use global predefined variable. The scene could work with local table as well, but by using global parameter you can keep history of the traffic. It very helpful when you're updating the system to new release, to compare Z-wave performance. In case you have decided to use global variable, copy the data to other variable to keep the history. To view data of saved variable please download and use Z-wave Viewer scene. Z-wave Viewer could be executed in parallel to Z-wave Monitor as well (when using global variable only) logRate = 5 -- Time rate in minutes to log Z-wave activity. Used as axis X scale in charts view. Reasonable value 5 to15 minutes for 24 hours of monitoring. In case to achieve better resolution the value could be decreased down to 1 minute. time2monitor = 6 -- Time-slot in hours to monitor z-wave traffic, after that time, table and chart will be displayed on debug window and scene will stopped. Value of 0 hours disables auto ending. User needs to stop the monitoring. If less than hour monitoring required please use decimal fraction. For example to set monitor time to 15 minutes set, time2monitor = .25 markId = "|0|0|", " Cyan" -- Devices (IDs) list and text color to display specific devices in defined color at monitor view for follow up purpose. In few cases you need to monitor specific device, so fill-in the device ID and it will be highlighted by different color from other devices. deadOnTop = {true, "maroon"} -- Display DEAD devices on top of the monitor view list in defined text color. Since we're not always looking on the screen, so in case the system will identify dead device it will continuously display the device (in red) on debug window. All variables below are the same for Z-wave Monitor and Z-wave Viewer chartHeight = 100 -- Chart height in percents (%). Chart's default height fits debug window. The variable changes height of all charts (devices.scenes and events) chartWidth = 100 -- Chart width in percents (%). Chart's default width expands according to number of samples. User could expand the width to get better detail view or to stretch to visualize the load on time axis or to take snap shot of entire time line. The variable changes width of all charts (devices.scenes and events) topDev2disp = 6 -- Number of most active devices to display on devices chart. If set to zero chart won't be displayed. topScene2disp= 10 -- Number of most active scenes to display on scenes chart. If set to zero chart won't be displayed. darkSkinMode = true -- Charts display skin mode. Set false for light (white) skin. dev2review={false,"|470|804"} -- Generate chart for every device in list of actual device readings over the monitoring time. For devices with two results (like power and energy) both reading will be displayed. On left and right sides of the chart applicable scale displayed. Please note, no chart is generated for devices like motion, door and any other sensors, which provide values of true/false. userDev={false,"|504|_531|"} -- User defined devices and scenes IDs to generate specific combined chart. Please write underscore before scene ID |_531| stackedChart=true -- A stacked line chart is an line chart in which lines do not overlap because they are cumulative at each point. Set to false to view standard line char. All charts except ZKG chart (events,CPU and RAM) will be displayed according to this variable. Brief explanation what is displayed: 1. Monitor view This snap shot includes top and dead devices marked in different color from other devices. Two main sections in this view: Header 1:08:07/ 6:00:00 1824 events/77 devices event/2.3s (Click Start for ) Elapsed Time/Monitoring time Number of Z-wave events/devices Z-wave traffic rate Click to switch to table/chart view Devices list Every device displayed at follow format - #2/34TV509@Salon(216.7 power) #2/34 -First number is number of events during logRate slot. Second number is total number for events so far. TV509@Salon - device name, ID and room name (216.7 power) - actual reading and reading property 2. Table view total # - number of total Z-wave events on device total % - Percentage of device's events of total system Z-wave events. All yellow marked headers are received Z-wave properties, except two properties, dead and deadReason which are marked in red. For each device displayed the total number of this specific properties. Red marked ID, means that device was or is "dead" By hovering mouse over device IDs, device and room names will be display (tool-tip) at popup box. At the end displayed few extra summaries Elapsed time and Start-End timestamps Sample log rate as defined by user. Total samples during monitoring time Total Z-wave events and total number of active devices Average Z-wave traffic rate Z-traffic range. Shows the highest and lowest z-wave activities during monitoring time. If dead devices have found, list of them is displayed 3. Most active devices chart This chart shows events number of most active devices ( up to number of all active devices allowed by setting topDevNum variable ) on monitoring time-line. On the right-upper corner displayed ID, name and room of the device. By hovering mouse on diagrams or legend, selected item will emphasized in bold to make the item more visible. 4. Most active scenes chart This chart shows triggers number of most active scenes ( up to number of all triggered scenes allowed by setting topDevNum variable ) on monitoring time-line. On the right-upper corner displayed ID, name and room of the scenes. By hovering mouse on diagrams or legend, selected item will emphasized in bold to make the item more visible. 5. Review device's actual readings - (dev2review) For devices with two results (like power and energy) both reading will be displayed. On left and right sides of the chart applicable scale displayed. This chart most useful to identify if device configured to send reports interval at high rate and " differ in readings to send report" set to very low value. By hovering mouse over the chart, will scale down the diagram to make visible entire range. In case the horizontal scrollbar is not in the middle of the chart , the diagram will flicker. 6. User defined combined chart In some cases we need to inspect behavior of some devices and scene that triggered by the device. This chart shows user defined devices and scenes on monitoring time-line. On the right-upper corner displayed ID, name and room of the scenes and/or device. By hovering mouse on diagrams or legend, selected item will emphasized in bold to make the item more visible. 7. ZKG Chart View Chart view shows Z-wave traffic and system load on time line (based on logRate value). You actually could see your smart home beating heart (like EKG). I have named as ZKG (Z-wave cardiogram). Now it's possible to see the "rush" and "quiet" hours of the system. Chart view includes 5 diagrams displayed over time-line of monitoring period. The diagrams are: Z-wave events Triggered scenes CPU1 percentage CPU2 percentage RAM percentage At top-right corner of the screen, displayed legend of the diagrams and colors. Events total number in same color as a diagram line. CPU1 min > avg < max in same color as a diagram line. CPU2 min > avg < max in same color as a diagram line. RAM min > avg < max in same color as a diagram line. Triggered scenes total in same color as a diagram line. Most triggered scene ID and scene's name in same color as a triggered scenes In case dead devices have found during the monitoring period, the time stamp where it happened will colored red and at the top of the screen, directly above the time stamp, dead device(s) ID displayed. Axis Y has two scales. Left scale represents occurrence numbers of Z-wave events and triggered scenes. Right scale is a percentage and it related to CPU1, CPU2 and RAM measured values. By hovering mouse on diagrams or legend, selected item will emphasized in bold to make the item more visible. I'm strongly advising to use global variable and to view the data using Z-wave Viewer in parallel to Z-wave Monitor The idea behind, that you can change parameters to view different devices/scenes on the fly. By changing user configurable parameters in Z-wave Monitor you'll need to start the scene all over again. Note: The debug text of these scenes is very big, so If you're using Clear Debug scene, please remove these scenes from the list. Please let me know if extra info is required. Please report if any bug occurred.
  3. I have an VD to gather real time values for monitoring battery bank. I can see these values in HC2 but not in Fibaro App (android). Is there an Fibaro App bug? Could be fixed somehow? Thank a lot for any feedback, Tomas
  4. Hello everyone ! I'm looking for forum's help on below subject: Sometimes scenes, virtual devices unexpectedly stop running due to bugs or other problems, physical devices stuck (motion sensors, power readings and etc.) and there is no ability to identify it. The only way to realize that something went wrong is when you notify that the system behaves differently. In many cases it takes a while to understand what the problem is. I'm wondering if there is any builtin solution to monitor proper execution of scenes, virtual devices and to identify that physical devices aren't stuck. Something like "watchdog" for all parts and codes. I've wrote scene that uses refreshStates API, but it looks more like workaround. Although the scene works perfectly and sends emails (TTS as well) in case of problems in any part of the system , I prefer to use standard solution if exists. Thank you I believe, I'm not the only one that struggling with this problem. (If anyone is interested to have my solution, I could post it despite my opinion that it is "ugly workaround")
  5. Hi I was looking through the messages from my lan monitor and came across a few interesting anomalies. My Humax Sat receiver connects each night at 3 to update the EPG but I know this is normal as I'm running custom firmware. I also spotted that my sat box is not part of my shutdown routine and that's easy to rectify. I'm also not picking up on the internet coming back online so I'll need to look at why. I recently connected an Echo Dot and that seems to sleep at no real definable pattern so I must watch that more closely. The real mystery are two Sony TV's of different vintages seem to go online and then offline during the night but I'm not sure why. I have another TV (samsung) , bluray player, etc that seem to stay offline until I next use them Does anybody else have any similar activity to this on their networks ?
  6. Hi all, I have a HCL with 4.057 Software Running. I have an Aeon DSB28 that is giving me some real problems. The Aeon has been added successfully to the HCL and the template loaded. However there are several slaves that are giving out data that I don't want. If I delete them, they just come back. I only have Clamp No.1 installed (230VAC, UK Single Phase), so Clamp 2 and Clamp 3 are non-existent. The data found on the Meter Total updates regularly and seems to keep track of usage. However, the Clamp No.1 actual reading is static, never updates and just gets added to the Meter Total meaning the power usage shown on the top of the screen is way out from what I'm actually using. The problems started on upgrading to 4.057 so I'm guessing its probably a software bug that I'm stuck with? Anybody else had issues?
