We are attempting to do a trivial proof of concept where the RUT955 serves as a modbus master and reads from a slave. We have configured the modbus master correctly and are able to use the modbus_tcp_test feature to query values.

We have configured the data to server functionality to send these values to a local http server on the same subnet. There is no data being send from the RUT to the server.

We have done the following things:

Confirmed the target http server is accessible via curl from the CLI

Confirmed that the modbus_tcp_master service is running and appears to be storing the modbus data in some database (we cant find the database)

Noticed that modbus_data_sender service does not appear to be running via ps

Attempted to start the modbus_data_sender directly and got the following messages: "skipping: not enabled ... skipping: empty json spec"

Noticed in the troubleshooting log that the modbus_data_sender exited and is not running

Downgraded to factory, 0.07.00 and other firmware versions.

What are we missing here?

You have not entered the JSON string in the Data to server configuration. The value seen is just a placeholder.

Try adding this JSON format to the configuration:

{"TS" : "%t", "S name" : "%n", "R name" : "%r", "data" : %a}

That did it.

Some feedback:

1) The interface makes that look like the value in the field is an actual default value and not a empty value

2) The interface rejects a blank "connection url" but does not reject a blank format so it suggests its not required

3) There are no error logs that showed the failure of the modus_data_sender was due to misconfiguration
