Watchdog used to work great, but having difficulties

I am sorry I am unsure which update caused problems for me. I disabled the reliance on Pushover (and no longer use prowl). When I enable it, my log fills with this repeatedly:

Watchdog Starting Watchdog monitoring thread

Watchdog Error Error in plugin execution runConcurrentThread:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "plugin.py", line 103, in runConcurrentThread
File "plugin.py", line 259, in checkDevices
KeyError: u'D1144855710'

Watchdog Error plugin runConcurrentThread function returned or failed (will attempt again in 10 seconds)



I deleted all the items it was watching. I re-installed. I disabled, deleted, and re-installed. Still the same. Thoughts?

Re: Watchdog used to work great, but having difficulties

It seems the plugin is trying to process device ID 1144855710. Is this a valid device ID? The plugin should cope with deleted devices, so I don't know what's happened here.

If all else fails, disable the plugin and then delete the preference file com.racarter.indigoplugin.watchdog.indiPref in the /Preferences/Plugins folder and re-enable the plugin.

A-ha! The preference file- that’s what I kept missing in my re-install.

Re: Watchdog used to work great, but having difficulties

I am having similar problems. Getting these errors:

Watchdog Starting Watchdog monitoring thread

Watchdog Error Error in plugin execution runConcurrentThread:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "plugin.py", line 103, in runConcurrentThread
File "plugin.py", line 259, in checkDevices
KeyError: u'D1587412639'

Watchdog Error plugin runConcurrentThread function returned or failed (will attempt again in 10 seconds)

Had to disable the plugin.

Re: Watchdog used to work great, but having difficulties

I suggest you follow the advice I gave in my previous post, which should resolve the issue.

I still can’t figure out how the situation arises; any clues you can provide would be useful.

Re: Watchdog used to work great, but having difficulties

This issue is caused by two dictionaries getting out of sync somehow. I've just released version 1.7.4 which should stop the error from occurring.
