@karlruhl you can remove your /root/src/oref0/ directory and re-clone the repository
rm -rf /root/src/oref0/ to remove it, and then cd /root/src/ && git clone https://github.com/openaps/oref0.git to re-clone
it would also be good if you could identify where in the docs that information should be (probably on the troubleshooting page?) and make a PR to add it if it's missing

@juanjuanmejias_twitter there’s a file in the autotune directory called myopenaps/autotune/autotune_recommendations.log that’s the easiest way to see what the basal rates are. The other way would be to look in myopenaps/settings/autotune.json

@danamlewis No problem
@zgohr And those values are the ones that are currently being used (since the last 4am iteration)? For example, if I look at the recommended autotune value for 10am and it's 1.222, does it mean my basal at 10am was 1.222? (Assuming for this example that no autosense is being applied. And then a second question is whether autosense is applied to that amount).

If it says 1.222, it’s going to use that number as your baseline basal for 10am for all the calculations about how much more or less insulin you need for the time frame. It’s not a daily dose report; it’s a tuned profile that’s then used until the next run when it tunes further.

yes, the autosens ratio is applied to your autotune profile

@danamlewis OK, that's clear, thanks!

@danamlewis And what does the Days Missing column indicate?
In the autotune_recommendations.log file

Hi guys,

the APS - system is perfect for my sister. But now, before we start to build a rig, i got a question to the group.

She use the Medtronic Enlite Glucose CGM's with a Medtronic minimed Paradigm 712 insulin pump.

Is it okay for the rig - system or could we get some trouble with this combination ?
I think, it will be okay.

Thanks a lot..

André

@juanjuanmejias_twitter how many days didn’t have data to tune that hour, out of the run. (So you may have more or less data to tune particular segments)
@Stargazer32584 hi - 712 works, but isn’t capable to read the cgm. So you may need to feed BGs from a more modern pump (eg 640G to the cloud), which makes your setup work only when you’re online and it can get the BGs from the cloud, or decide to use a non-Medtronic cgm.

Hi all :)

I am really impressed with 0.7.0 - thank you for everyone's effort.

I am finding that it is a little aggresive with its insulin amount. For example, over 3 - 4 hours my blood will go from 8.9 down to 3.3 and my pump for example right now is giving 1.9 units per hour as a basal, and my blood is 5.9. To me that is too high, it should be a lot less, because if it continues to give me that, im definitely going to be taken low.

What shall I adjust to fix this? I can go ahead and change my base basal rates...is that the best idea?

Yes, look at autotune and evaluate your settings

https://openaps.readthedocs.io/en/latest/docs/Customize-Iterate/understanding-autotune.html?highlight=autotune -- so , if i want to look at that output for me......I check out the contents of myopenaps/autotune/autotune_recommendations.log?
That page doesn't really state that!

Cat-autotune . It’s emphasized in the shortcuts sections in the setup page. please PR other pages if you feel like it should be elsewhere!

@danamlewis
Thanks a lot for the information.
For a newbie is it not so easy to find the right combination.
But in our case, we prefer an offline system, if it is possible.
My sister have two pumps. The first one is the 712. And the second one is really a 640G.
But...for a test, we could take the hotspot funktion of the smartphone to send the data to the cloud.
For my own appreciation: The CGM sends the BG to the pump and then, in our case, the RPi Zero with Adafruit-Shield load it from the pump ?
Sorry for these unusual question, but i try to understand the system.

Thanks a lot

André

I think you also need a CNL meter to take the data from 640 to the cloud - but yes, otherwise that is correct
To have an offline system, you can 1) switch CGm ; 2) get a different model Medtronic pump (can’t remember if 22 uses cgm or just 23’s) that’s still loopable and an older enlite transmitter so the pump can be the cgm receiver

@danamlewis
Ah...okay.
So, if we want to use the 640G pump with the Enlite's, what is a CNL meter ?
Thank you...you make our day !!

(Heading offline so will let someone using a 640 uploader fill in the rest of the details :+1: )
Jan Schenk
@jansche

@Stargazer32584 The CNL is the meter that comes
with the 640 pump. You need to plug it into an uploader (E.g. Android Phone with 600 series uploader app).
The 640 communicates directly with the pump, but you need the Contour Next Link (hence CNL) to get access to this closed system.
Sorry should be "the 640 communicates directly with the Enlite CGM"
