SBFspot historical data



I’ve just installed SBFspot and I am trying to get as much historical data as I can from my inverter and upload this to PVOutput.

I ran the following:
/usr/local/bin/sbfspot.3/SBFspot -v -finq -nocsv -startdate:20200422

hoping to get all data since 22 April this year, however when I look at the database, it seems it only has detailed data for today and the historical data for April seems to have been collated already (in vwMonthData) and there’s no data loaded for May.

Am I misunderstanding how this works? Is there any way to get SBFspot to retain all the minute-to-minute data for each day? I understand this data is available from my inverter (SunnyBoy 5000TL) for the past 62 days.


This should do the job:

/usr/local/bin/sbfspot.3/SBFspot -ad62 -am2 -ae2 -v -finq -nocsv
