Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

After adding a 2.5 to my network, I'm seeing the following in Indigo's log:

Code: Select all
Apr 12, 2021 at 3:50:30 PM
   MQTT Connector Warning          Queue for message type 'shelly' has 11 messages pending
   MQTT Connector Warning          Queue for message type 'shelly' has 12 messages pending


Any idea how to clear and prevent those messages from showing up? It's logging them as often as every 30 seconds.

Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

First try to upgrade to the latest MQTT Connector plugin, that will probably solve the problem.

Already running the latest from github, 0.4.10

I thought restarting the MQTT Connector solved it, but that was wishful thinking.

Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

Go into the plugin config dialog and change the queue size to 30 or so.

Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

Queue size is already 30. Not sure if that was default or if I'd previously changed it as per another suggestion.

    I would bump the queue size up to a higher number (I think 30 is the new default). I personally run with a queue size of 50 with 2 Shelly Bulbs and 2 Shelly PlugUS's. Due to how fast the messages come in and the speed at which they can be processed, I would not be surprised to see a spike of 100+ messages on an active setup during a busy period. And that would be perfectly normal behavior due to the speeds at which these things are actually happening. My post here describes what is actually happening and how amazingly fast this all occurs.

    @FlyingDiver I think there could become confusion around these queue messages. I believe they are necessary as they indicate when something in the pipeline is not working or setup correctly. BUT, there is no "everything is ok now" message. So users are left with a log message saying there are 32 messages pending. Do you think a message could be logged when a queue exceeds the threshold and the queue is subsequently emptied? I think that might make these messages less intimidating.

    Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

    50 and 100 still produced the messages with the plugin set to Warning Level. Should I keep increasing that to find the point at which the warnings stop or change the logging threshold to a higher level? Changing the event logging level to Critical still seems to have produced the two warning messages after reloading the plugin, but so far only once in over 10 minutes.

    I have the following Shelly devices currently on my network:

    2x Shelly1
    2x Shelly Uni
    1x Shelly 2.5
    1x Shelly Plug

    I also have another 3 plugs and a couple (each) of Shelly1s and Shelly RGBW2 to add soon.

    Just to confirm, you updated your queue warning size to 50 and you eventually received a message saying there were more than 50 messages queued?

    Have you changed the frequency at which the devices report information over MQTT? The default is 30 seconds, but it sounds like you have multiple devices (maybe 3) that are reporting at almost the same time. Are there any devices that share the same power source and could have been powered on at the same time?

    Not as simple as it might sound. Right now I just check the queue size when adding something to it. I could report when the queue is empty, but I don't want to do that on every fetch. So I'd have to keep track of the fact that the queue had gone over the warning level at one time. Makes it a lot more complicated.


    Right now I want to know if the OP is getting messages that say it's over the original 10 limit or over his new 50 or 100 limit. If it's still reporting at 11 or 12 there's some other bug.

    Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

    Actually I did just find a bug in how the queue warning limit was set after plugin restart.

    Try 0.4.11: https://github.com/FlyingDiver/Indigo-M ... tag/0.4.11

    Updated to 50, but messages remained the same, always 11 and 12 together or 11 and 11 together.

    Have you changed the frequency at which the devices report information over MQTT?


    No, not touched any configuration params to do with MQTT besides turning ON MQTT and setting the server address in the Shelly web UI.

    The default is 30 seconds, but it sounds like you have multiple devices (maybe 3) that are reporting at almost the same time. Are there any devices that share the same power source and could have been powered on at the same time?


    No, none can be (and have not been) powered up at precisely the same time unless there's a power failure at the house.

    I'll give that a shot.

    Re: Shelly 2.5 - pending messages in log

    Just about to try the new Connector, but in the meantime thought I'd put things back to original settings "just to check"

    First set Event logging back to Warning - no messages appearing
    Next set queue back to 30 from 100 - no messages appearing (only left it for 5 minutes or so)

    Next updated to ShellyMQTT 0.7.1 from 0.6.0 and this output to the log

    But nothing since then, about 7 minutes ago. So messages seem to be gone now.
