To familiarize myself with the Losant platform, I took a cellular Imp and hooked it to up to various parts of my camper’s DC power system as well as a GPS for my latest road trip, a total of 2400 miles over 12 days. I’m delighted with the platform, but I’ve seen some performance issues with the map.
I was reporting location every 30s, and it seems like there isn’t any data decimation happening. Drawing the map seems to bog down the browser pretty significantly, to the point that I get the “a web page is slowing down your browser” warning out of Firefox. It also seems to stop plotting data at some point. If the map is set to show 14 days of data, I’m still in Washington, but if I set it to 3 days, it shows my drive home to California. Unlike the line graphs, the map block doesn’t seem to have a “resolution” interval to reduce the density of data.
Am I missing something that I could do to improve performance here? (other than report location less often, I guess)
