Sometimes slow/not working VD/LUA





A few months ago my virtual device for my engine heater became very slow and sometimes it doesn't work at all.

Sometimes it gets better if i reboot the HC2 but it´s not funny when it´s -30 C and I get late to work because the car wont start and there is no way to be sure if it will work or not the next morning. 


Is this a known problem and is there a way to read the logfiles on the HC2? The diagnostics panel doesn't say much.


The VD has been working great for several months before it became slow/not working. It might have happened after an upgrade. The controlled device works if i manually set i to active.


Several other LUA scripts also became non working after an upgrade (cant remember if it happened at the same time) but I got them working just by changing something, save, change back and save again.

I also get "to many instances" on other LUA scripts but not on the engine heater. Maybe they overload the HC2 and make it slow? I attached the VD and the scripts.


LightsTimerToManyInstancesNotWorking.txt -- a timer that will turn off the lights if any of the two devices is on for more than xx minutes

EngineHeaterLUA.txt -- the script for the VD
