Random profiles not working

Post by otronics »

Hello.

I have various profiles that capture an image and upload it to FTP.

How this works:

* Profiles run every 30 minutes.

* Each profile runs a batch file code to download the image and store it locally. Example code for 6am:

Code: Select all

copy /Y "C:\Program Files\Webcams\Images From During The Day\WeatherCam.jpg" "C:\Program Files\Webcams\Images From During The Day\Upload\0600.jpg"
* Syncback then uploads the file to an FTP destination.

As you can see here, some profiles don't appear to work:
Capture.JPG
Capture.JPG (142.74 KiB) Viewed 2979 times
This happens daily and could be any profile (it isn't just 6am etc).

However, the log file says it has run successfully:
Capture2.JPG
Capture2.JPG (23.28 KiB) Viewed 2979 times
Is this a bug or something else?

I have checked, and the batch file always downloads the image file correctly - I can see them all locally.

Thanks.

Could be display-lag of a copy of SBF that you have open already/throughout and which I assume I assume you are viewing (more background here). So try pressing F5 and see if the missing values appear.

No, I have no idea why some values display anyway, some not, and if F5 doesn't help, I have no further ideas right now

PS I'm assuming the profiles run on Schedules? Also that the JPGs are successfully uploaded to FTP regardless of the Result column value. The log file showing Success is a big clue but the correct file arriving at the Destination is kinda important too...

Sadly, this is not the issue.

These do run on schedules.

I should have been more clear - the JPEG's DO NOT upload, despite the log file saying they have.

This is why 'Success' does not appear in the appropriate column.
