MQTT connection status

#1

Hi everyone!


I have some problem with my solution. I have an esp8266 witch communicate with my node-red server. It sends a sensor's value and publish an "ALIVE" text if callback happens(if a msg arrive in a specified topic) . So I want to observe it ,if it's working or not . But in not specified regularity it sends me an "DEAD "sign , when it is plugged . Please watch the code , cause it is hard to explain .Thanks for your help.

You have the trigger set to 40 milliseconds, so 40 milliseconds after receiving an input it will send DEAD. Is that what you meant?

I dont know that the time beween 2 "DEAD" sign is 40msec or more ... but it shouldn't send any , if my esp is communicating . am i wrong ? image

How often are you expecting messages in? In the flow you posted the trigger is set to 40ms so if there is a gap of 40ms between messages it will send DEAD.

i changed the value to 2sec , and now it works great . I expected the temperature values in 1000msec, and i wanted to check the communication at every pubish at the (topic/stop) from the server side, but i realized that it was to high expecting from the esp side . Thnaks for your help
