My Wi-Fi is down. What is the buffer for data storage?
What happens if your wifi is down?
If your wifi is down, you will obviously observe that the counting is interrupted. However, the Telraam has a buffer. The buffer is an area in a hard drive or in the RAM of a computer to store data for a while for use. This means that some data from your Telraam will be kept and some count data will be transferred to the server when your wifi is restored.
Warning: If you often experience such outages of your Wi-Fi, there may be a problem with the strength of your home Wi-Fi and its accessibility to your Telraam. There are several options to fix this problem:
- Move your Wi-Fi router closer to the window where your Telraam is placed.
- Place your Telraam on another window, closer to your Wi-Fi router.
- Acquire a Wi-Fi range extender (Telraam does not offer this service, so you will have to do it by yourself).
What is the buffer of the Telraam?
The Telraam has a one-day buffer. If the wifi goes down, the count data will be kept up to the same day. So that means that if the same day the wifi connection is restored (or there is connection in some other way), the count data will still be transmitted.
However, during a Wi-Fi outage, there is a risk that some data will be lost during the time of the outage. Indeed, the Telraam data is normally transmitted at very regular intervals to the server, and depending on the moment of the outage, some data may be lost during the time of the outage.
