[VD] Scene & VD Debug Watchdog 1.1


AutoFrank

Question

Hi 

 

UPDATED 1.1

 

UPDATED THIS VD FROM A SCENE WATCHDOG TO A SCENE & VIRTUAL DEVICE WATCHDOG

Hopefully this will be a useful little VD to some users

It was inspired by a comment made by @tinman (I think) 

 

This VD Enables a user to scan all scene and virtual device DEBUG MESSAGES and trigger on predefined key words in the debug messages.

This may be useful to see if a scene develops an error or perhaps you are just looking for a keyword for a different reason

  • All scenes and virtual devices are included by default
  • Specific scenes and virtual device id's can be flagged to exclusion
  • Separate watch lists for scenes and virtual devices
  • A watchdog report is sent for all matches identified.
  • Can be sent via email or smart message hub
  • You get one email or message per id flagged ( not per watch word)
  • It will send message if no match in either vd or scene is found (added in v 1.1)
  • Suggested icon included below
  •

Note: If you use the Smart Message Hub please add that scene ID into the exclusion list as that scene will be 
flagged by the watchdog after the first use.
  
This can be run on demand or on a schedule using Main Scene by @Sankotronic or similar.
I run it on a schedule once per day

 

Installation 

  • Import the VD
  • Configure the following as required

Please login or register to see this code.

  • Place on a scheduler if required

 

The VD has a status label and when it was last run

and this is what the report looks like on pushover

    A very useful VD :-)

    But how do I get mail or message if I do not use Smart message hub?

     

    Thanks :-) @RH_Dreambox

     

    if you set SMsgH = false in the configuration section this will send to hc2 email by default

  • very slight change (1.0b)  to show it running as it is checking the scenes in the status label

    Hi @AutoFrank,

     

    Thanks for this nice VD. I already use watchdog from @Lazer on French forum:

     

    Please login or register to see this link.

     

    and new version is working good on latest firmware versions. It can restart scene or VD if stop running and that is what I needed most. Here is also icon that I use for it:

    Thanks @Sankotronic

    I didn't know about that solution. it's a pity as I probably would have written this if I had seen that one. :-(

    It looks comprehensive alright. I notice that he also scans the VD debug (I searched the api documents and couldn't find it - It's really frustrating that they don't keep the documentation up to date) :=(

    The fact that it restarts is nice  ;)   perhaps my one may have a use if some is trying to troubleshoot an particular scene issue that is triggered by a specific word ..... good learning experience for me either way...

    Hi @AutoFrank,

     

    I didn't post link to that Watchdog scene to tell that your VD is not needed! On the contrary, your VD is nice help with troubleshooting. I will use your VD to troubleshoot my new system that I'm working on, so please don't remove it! I already see it's potential to assist me so that I don't have to stare at the screen all day long when I come back home!

     

    Keep up the good work Frank! Your contribution to this community is very valuable and appreciated!

    No, send mail does not work for me :-(

    Is mail sent to Superusers mail address? I always login local as Superuser.

    Let me take a look this evening 

    I have a 1.0c version that also scans Virtaul devices with two different watch lists. I'll confirm that the email is working before sending that version this evening

    I think your VD code is OK. It must be something wrong with my HC2 config!

    I have tested this but got no mail. :-(

    Please login or register to see this code.

    Edit

    My HC2 needed a reboot. Now sendEmail works :-)

    I think it's better to look for ERROR-messages. I use this for WUWeather.

    Hi @jompa68,

     

    I don't since Netatmo scene is run by Main scene every two minutes. Main scene is running every minute with possible longer pause at 2 o'clock in the morning to adjust timing and this is setting that I have in Watchdog scene for main scene and some VD's:

    Please login or register to see this code.

    I had to extend intervalle to 90 otherwise was getting notification that main scene is restarted due to that longer pause for timing adjustment that can take more than 60 seconds.

    {type = "VD", id = 336, match = {text="VD updated", interval=30}, no_match = {text="", type="ERROR"}, restart=true, notification = {"push", "email"}},

     

    Hi @Sankotronic

    Is the type you are trying to match against above (type = "ERROR")  for a DEBUG message  of a (red) ERROR message (see below)

    Hi @AutoFrank,

     

    coul'd you please make your debug picture a bit greater, because they are hardly readable.
