    Hi,

    I have a data point export (JSON) of a single data point from one mango environment and would like to load it into another mango environment.

    I've found documentation on how to bulk data point import/export from a CSV but mine is JSON formatted.

    EDIT: The only way I found is to use the API but was wondering if there is an alternative.

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    @mattfox Yes, that is a good idea. I will work on thinking of a safe way to exit. My exact use case is that the script will detect people in real time and the only reason why I would want to stop this detection is if a bit flips to zero in the PLC. I was thinking that a safe way to exit could be to continuously poll the data point I want to trigger on to see if it is zero, and if it is zero I exit. However, I would have to make an API call every second. If you have any ideas, please let me know.

    @phildunlap Ok, I see what you mean. So if my source point has not changed for 15 seconds, I can treat it as unchanged and do something off of that.
    For now, I just created another data point event detector for the source point to detect a state of 0. And when the state is 0, I run a process command that kills the python script. It seems to get the job done, and now when I run "top" I can see the python process going away and back as I toggle the source point.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    @phildunlap What is lastSet in this case? It says lastSet is undeclared.

    @phildunlap It was the melting from the multiple runs of the script which made it appear that the script was not working. Right now everything is working. The command in the 'set command' of my ssh datapoint is firing when the state changes to true for my source whereas it the same command was giving errors in the process event handler so the lesson learned for me is to use a set point event handler when my script uses relative paths and environmental variables.

    Only problem now is I need to be careful because each time the source goes to 1, it starts up another run of my script and with 3 of those, my system crashes. Now I just need a way to kill the process when the state changes to false.

    Yes, here is the JSON of the event handler:

    @phildunlap You said that the script could get retriggered if I restarted the data source and data point, which is what I was doing. So maybe that was the cause. I was restarting the source and point because I was unable to set the ssh data point in the watch list.

    EDIT: I think I see what the problem might have been (with the lagging). When I restart the SSH data source/point, the event handler fires again and launches my script in another session and it does for each time I restart the source/point. And eventually it hoses up my entire system.

    Yes, that is correct.

    Here is a screenshot of my virtual datapoint which serves as the source for firing the event handler:
    0_1548963338669_dea875b5-146f-44cd-9d00-459443c1d2ff-image.png
    I manually set the virtual datapoint so it only goes from 0 to 1 or 1 to 0, and not 0 to 0 or 1 to 1.

    This is my SSH datapoint which gets set by the event handler. I have it get scripted to return true because I don't care what the value of this data point is but just that the set command gets fired:

    Currently for the event detector I have it as "when the state is one". So I guess "when the state is one" means 0 to 1 and 1 to 1?

    What if I created another event detector for "when the state is zero" and kill the process that way?

    @mattfox said in Process Event handler to fire external script:

    if ( point.last(1,0)[0].value == 0 && point.value == 1 )
    {
    return true; //fire handler
    }

    The logic that I am after is that it fires my script but I do not want the scripts to continuously fire.
    Right now there are two problems:

    1. the set point handler is triggering all the time (the reason why I believe it is triggering all the time is because my set point cannot be set back to 0) and setting my ssh data point to true all the time. It should execute once and be done. Right now the data point is stuck at 1, and I am unable to change it back to 0.
      0_1548955502126_a1d055e5-28bb-4245-9505-450794c2c4d2-image.png
    2. my script which is in the set command of the ssh data point still is not executing, which is the purpose behind me pursuing ssh datasources and data points

    EDIT: I recreated the SSH datapoint, and set point handler and I got the set command to fire but at a 6 second delay. It also looks like the entire MangoES box is lagging at the same rate.

    EDIT2: After restarting the MangoES box and deactivating several other data sources that have various polling and triggers associated with it, the CPU reduced to 360% (8 cores). Before the CPU was being hit too hard so the script was not running correctly.
