2024.5: Just a little bit smaller

I got dreame vacuum and Huawei solar (that I read on the fly when checking this thread)

ha os update

Does not work, says its blocked.

Yes, because you have the dreame vacuum custom integraiton, please read the issues with that custom integration. Update it to 1.0.4 before updating HA.

Can I do this via CLI ?

ha store smth smth?

Maybe you can link to instructions. Maybe I have to stop the core first?

I noticed the same problem, all the speed gains from previous versions are gone, 2024.5.x is very slow to start now.
I looked at the integrations startup times and nothing changed there, so it’s something else, but I don’t know where to investigate.

If you’re having issues like this, it’s likely caused by a custom integration doing bad things. My startup times reduced by 4 seconds this release. I went from 14 seconds to 10 seconds. Largely because of fixes in a few specific integrations (MQTT mostly). I still have 2 integrations that are slow to start up.

I suggest looking in your logs for slowdowns, even going as far as running the troubleshooting guide that bdraco posted earlier.

Of course, it needs to be dynamic. :smile:
So, an automation can change those startup values during the day. Eg:
In the morning very bright and white, during the night, low brightness, maybe yellow color, when just turning on light

If you want something like that, use adaptive lighting custom integration or something similiar.


That’s not what start up values are for. That’s circadian lighting. You can do it with automation or there’s even a 3rd party integration.

Start up values are defaults.

They don’t change.


I know, but even in safe mode, it doesn’t change anything.
The slowdown (in my case) seems to have appeared between the loss of frontend and when it connects again, after that, timing seems the same than previous versions, I have a few slow integrations like Synology DSM, Axis, Reolink that can take up to 25s to initialize, but that is usual, nothing changed there.
Here, the anomaly is that it now takes 30s or so between the loss of connection and when the browser connects again with the startup popups where it was a few seconds with 2024.4.x.
Anyway, thanks for the link to bdraco’s post, I will look into it.

Here also 2024.5.1 very slow and CPU load definitely significantly higher than in 2024.4 so I get many Timing Warnings and Errors in the log. I do not find the root cause if it realy any custom intergration (I do not have Dreame Vacuum).

New are these warnings and errors in 2024.5:

  • homeassistant.helpers.translation] Failed to load integration for translation: Invalid domain xxx
  • [homeassistant.components.recorder.db_schema] State attributes for sensor.watchman_missing_entities exceed maximum size of 16384 bytes. This can cause database performance issues; Attributes will not be stored
  • [homeassistant.components.sensor] Updating snmp sensor took longer than the scheduled update interval 0:00:10

I’m using these custom integrations:

  • hacs
  • powercalc
  • dwd_pollenflug
  • daikin_onecta
  • edge_tts
  • temperature_feels_like
  • miele
  • pirateweather
  • auto_backup
  • spook
  • custom_templates
  • watchmann
  • ipmi
  • places
  • browser_mod
  • scheduler
  • daikin_residential_altherma

Anybody find one of these causing a slow HA?


which are those? we cant help guessing about your unposted errors.
also, turn on debug: true and asyncio debug (profiler service) for startup Loggins that have beter info than the default HA log
see 2024.5: Just a little bit smaller - #89 by bdraco for instructions

Have enabled debug mode and there a many lines after restart.

On of the last and coming again ist that about IPMI Intergration:

and this:

That pretty much sums it up.



Anybody else having strange effects in the energy dashboard since 2024.5?

I have a shelly 3EM and have a helper for it to sum up the three “energy” entities for the dashboard. Additionally I have those three entities separately in the “detailed usage of specific devices” section.

That worked flawlessly from the start some months ago.

But since two days (likely since ugrading to 2024.5(.1)) the general view doesn’t show any hourly values anymore, but only one entry at 2-3 o’clock with the total amount of the counter (a few thousand kwh), instead of just the amount of the increase of the counter within that hour. The detailed view on the other hand still shows hourly values for the three counters over the whole day, just with the change for each hour.

Anybody else with that behaviour? Or any clue what’s happening?

added a screenshot to maybe better show what I described above:

Somewhere I saw info that beta version of this integration is free of this issue. But might be mixing different issues.

1.0.4 and the beta are free of the issue.

Some theme-related changes were added in 2024.5 - and using variables in a custom theme may break Z-index.
No idea how using a “filter” var may affect this.

type: vertical-stack
  - type: entities
      - input_select.test_value
  - type: entity
    entity: sun.sun

ecobee update is inconsistent. The default preset_modes follow the new consistent lower case format but custom modes still require capital letters if that is how they are named. Updating to lower case results in API errors.
