Data Yours - Configuration Page Problem

I have DataYours up and running and I am tracking a few variables. One lingering issue is on the Configuration page upper left, the icons do not display and the links do not work. The reason is the IP address in the image and link URLs is which is not correct. For example: On the dashboard page all the links are fine. Again for example:

I’m running openLuup on Linux w/ ALTUI and bridging to a single VeraPlus

I’ve been poking around in the lua files for DataYours but I’m not finding anything yet. I did have to manually copy the icon files from github. If I tunnel port 3480 from my PC (localhost) to the server the icons and links work fine. But without the tunnel of course they don’t.

Any insights will be appreciated. Some additional info below. Thanks!!!

One additional bit of info. The URLs for the icons are also missing the port number. For example:

I actually had to tunnel both port 80 and 3480 to the sever to get the icons to display. I think I read in a post yesterday that prepending :3480 to the ICON_PATH value helps with this. But still with the loopback IP it won’t work.

OK, thanks for all the diagnostics.

TBH it is ages since I have run DataYours in all its glory, in particular the use of DataDash. My recommendation would certainly to be to use the Data Historian in openLuup instead. No plugin needed. All built-in. No configuration needed. It works independently of DataYours, so you could try it out in parallel.

To address some of your issues, though. The IP address should certainly work, since it refers to the host machine on which the server is running.

As missing port number is clearly an issue, though. I’ll try to take a look.


OK, taken a look…

Once upon a time, the URL for the icons worked on Vera. They may still work. Under openLuup, they definitely won’t, and this really reflects the fact that DataDash was never updated to run under openLuup. For me, though, although the icons are missing, the links still work. Must be something in your virtual environment which is different?

The other DataYours daemons (Watcher, Cache, Graph) should work fine, because I used to use them extensively, but relied on DataYours as a Data Storage Provider under AltUI and used the AltUI variable plot functionality.

I can fix this if absolutely necessary, but I’d strongly recommend installing Grafana for plotting data and using Data Historian.

No worries. I’ll figure it out eventually. I have a simple workaround with the ssh tunnels.

But I have to disagree that should certainly work, at least in my case. If my browser was running on the same machine as the server yes it would work. But when the browser is on my PC, refers to my own machine, not the server.

I’ll look at Data Historian. I was playing with DataYours only because it was there among the initial plugins.

I will venture a guess that your browser is on the same machine as your DataDash. In that case the URLs will work fine.

As I mentioned in my other comments, my browser is on a separate machine. That’s what’s different. And no, fixing is not absolutely necessary. I’ll sort it out if I need to. But thanks for looking.

Ah, good point. That’s because I was running on my development machine.

Data Historian

Wish I had seen this before I started messing w/ Data Yours. LOL

The underlying technology is the same, but the interface is so, so much different.

The openLuup console has fairly extensive Historian reporting, including a very basic plotting function, but Grafana is the way to go.

Indeed. I got the free hosted Grafana instance and was up with a chart of my 2 variables in a few minutes. Simply amazing.

So I can drop the DataYours plugin entirely? Cool.

I have another question for you but I’ll post it on the openLuup topic.

Thanks!! -dk

Yes, that’s what I’ve done, although I use the historian to plot some legacy DataYours files. I removed DataYours from the predefined plugins list for new installations a while ago, but you can delete it manually from the Plugins page.

Glad you like it.
