Survey v2 Released

Folks,

I am officially releasing Survey v2.

What is the Survey Plugin?

The Survey plugin is primarily used for helping diagnose or identifying issues with the Indigo device network. The plugin will send a “ping” out to each device on the network and track how long it takes the device to respond. These metrics can help identify devices that are slow to respond, or responding erratically.

Download Link - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/241 ... 0v2.00.zip

Basic Usage:

  • From the Plugin Menu, choose the Survey Plugin, and choose How many Passes to run.
  • Each Pass is a complete examination of all Insteon devices. So the more passes (and more devices you have) the longer it will take to process the report.
  • While the report is running Indigo maybe slower to respond to other Home Automation requests. While I have written the software to allow Indigo to process other requests, it is a good idea to run the survey’s when the system is reasonably idle.
  • Survey’s will be stored in ~/Documents/Surveys, and can be deleted, or preserved as required.
  • This plugin currently supports all Insteon devices that support the Insteon StatusRequest command. Generally that means that any battery powered Insteon device will not be tested with this plugin.

Once the report is done, Indigo will open a web browser that contains the results of the survey.
The Plugin does not have a Indigo Web Interface.

The search feature does allow you to filter the report, so you could restrict it to Keypadlincs, by simply typing "keypadlinc" into the search box.

The inspiration of this is from the iHealth application.

I hope to be able to extend this to support Zwave, X10, etc. At this time it is not possible, but I am hopeful that eventually we will be able to do so.

I welcome any feedback, comments, and concerns. I especially would like your feedback regarding the reports. Is there additional data that you think would be useful? Do you think there is a better way to present the data? etc.

- Benjamin

No, stupid mistake on my part. Somehow I bundled the wrong version up for release?...

I can't explain it, other than I wanted to get it out to the public.

Try this:

Okay, there was a typo in the heat map lookup table. Try this version.

Re: Survey v2 Released

works nicely the "hop heat map" coding is a bit unclear without any legend/key on the page - actually I don't know how it is coded.
and it is not necessarily correlated to response time -see screen shot.

otherwise perfect.

Once again, the heat map is hard for to summarize in a legend.

I'll take a stab at it though.

Image

The idea is that you can see the entire run of pings since each pass is represented (by an Asterick or a Dash). So for example,

Image

You can clearly see that out of these 5 runs, only the middle run had any issues.

For the middle run, the 4th run was pretty bad, but the last two were in the "middle" for delays (0.75?).

It would be relatively easy to tell that you may want to pull up the detailed report for that run.

Please note, none of those runs came up was a Time Out. A Timeout would be represented by a DASH, not an asterisk.

Re: Survey v2 Released

ok,

..there are some blue at the higher numbers and there is only 1 * --- if it would show 2 ** with one blue one red I would understand.

There shouldn't be. But something is funny there with the percentages. I'll take another look.

Part of the issue is that somehow there was a regression with the code for the final release. So I'll take another look and see if something else is happening.

Double check that your running v2.02, and let me know if you see anything different with v2.02.

Right now the percentages seem to be fine with the local testing here, and the hop heat meter seems to be showing fine.

If you want, zip up the report in question, and send it to me as a ZIP file to Benjamin AT schollnick DOT net, and I'll take a closer look at the figures.

Here's an optional quote from me, regarding this. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/241415/swear.jpg

That's a pain, and I'm not going to re-release it to just fix the freaking version number.
If you could bundle up the survey report, and send me a copy, and I'll take a closer look.

Okay, after looking at your report, I have run into this issue before.

First, try this:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/241 ... 0v2.03.zip

Let me know what message's it displays in your log.

But you should get a warning corresponding to these devices:

23.DE.94
14.F5.E0
22.54.80
23.0F.49

I believe you have duplicate device(s) accidentally defined in your Indigo database. It appears that check if you already have the address defined, so you can accidentally have multiple entries for the same Insteon device.

v2.03 adds code to check for this, and will warning you to check those two devices, and then ignores the 2nd+ devices that have duplicate IDs.

But this explains how you can have a ping count greater than 1 when you performed a single ping, and how your average is higher than 100%.
And why the heat map was goofed up, because the pings were less than the critical values, but the average calculation was wrong because of the excess data. So the heat map was correct, but the average was calculated wrong.
