Network Device Status

Network Status

With the exception of the regional National Weather Service information, all the information provided on this web site is from hardware and software installed at my home. The information is collected and processed by PCs on my local area network and then uploaded to my web server for presentation over the internet.

The Network device status image is generated using Nagios Enterprise Monitoring Server (NEMS) for Raspberry Pi. For weather data collection I use a Davis Vantage Pro 2 with Davis Data Link software. The rain gauge is heated to obtain the liquid content of frozen precipitation. The heater is capable of melting snow at a rate of 1/4 in. (6 mm) of liquid precipitation per hour. It may not be able to keep up with higher rates of snowfall. The lightning data are obtained from a Boltek StormTracker lightning detector installed at my home. The raw lightning strike data are processed for presentation using Astrogenic Systems NexStorm software. The weather data I collect are sent via the internet to the Citizen Weather Observer Program.

Here is a picture of a wireless web camera mounted above my deck. This outdoor camera is facing south and provides the image used on my home page.

Station Picture

This photo is of my Davis Integrated Sensor Suite mounted above my deck. This suite contains sensors for temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, solar radiation, and precipitation. The data are transmitted wirelessly to my Davis Vantage Pro 2 console. The information on the console is collected by Davis WeatherLink software which then uploads the information to my web server. The antenna sticking up above the Sensor Suite is my two meter ham radio antenna.
