Hello,
I have a ThingSpeak account where I upload data from a DHT22 into my channels via an HTTP GET url and without looking at my specific case....I was wondering if others have any trouble?

It seems very sporadic.   I have updates set programmatically for once update every 60 seconds but what I actually get is FAR from that.

There is very little rhyme or reason.    Sometimes the data points are 1 minute apart, sometimes 2 minutes apart, sometimes 5 minutes apart, sometimes 10-15 minutes apart and so on....the variations are wild and ANYTHING but what I want them to be.

Is this a common issue with ThingSpeak or should I post some code and some URL's to try to isolate the problem?

Thanks for any assistance / advice

I do not think it is a common issue. I DO think you should post some code.
The art of getting good answers lies in asking good questions.

The problem turned out to be collision of updates.

I was running two processes that connected to ThingSpeak at the same time.
I had forgotten that they would likely try to update at the same time.
