Hi, i have an ESP8266 thing that has been flawlessly logging data for months, one data point per minute.
However I recently realised that it is now skipping quite a lot of points, sometimes going for 8-10 minutes without logs.
I tried the following:
1) stripped down the code to the bare minimum, no difference
2) I eventually even tried the Arduino example on the thingspeak site, it behaves exactly the same
3) I recorded the traffic with tcpdump/wireshark. It appears that all is in order, flawless TCP conversation
My conclusion is that ThingSpeak MUST have changed something on the server side.
Anyone experiencing the same?
Thank you for reporting the issue. We are working to identify a fix and will post when it is resolved.
While we work to resolve this is it possible to switch your device to use the REST API?
Take a look at this example on how to use the REST API to do bulk updates. It has the added benefit that you may be able to send your device to sleep between sending data to the server, potentially extending the battery life for battery powered devices.
