I have a device outputting at approx. 5 second intervals but Thingspeak updates at 15 second intervals. What is happening to the lost messages please? Geoff

What is the status code you get from ThingSpeak when you update your channel? If you are using the Write Data API and get a HTTP 200 response code with a number representing an entry_id, then your data was accepted by ThingSpeak.
With a free license of ThingSpeak you can only update the channel every 15s. Any more frequent updates are rejected with a HTTP 200 status code and "0" response.
If you want to update your channel every 5s, consider purchasing a ThingSpeak license.
