Issue: Intermittent Connectivity
I’m relatively new to the Cayenne community, and I’m enjoying it so far! I have plans to throw together a weather station for my mother (she’s a data junky, and after she saw the dashboard and the graphical displays, this found its way onto my to-do list ). I’ve just found time to get into this, so I’ve had my board up and running with no attachments for a few days to see how reliable the dash is on Android. Up until about an hour ago it was running extremely well, but I rebooted my Pi (I have a habit of cycling power on things that run continuously, and I’ve got it in my head that that’s a good thing. Don’t know if it helps, but it doesn’t seem to hurt! ). Since then the Pi has been exhibiting a strange issue. It will “check in” extremely briefly roughly once a minute, throw some data to the widgets, and go offline again. The “Last known status” of the device is never more than a minute old. Also, I can’t use reboot commands or a simple LED actuator during the short time it is online without getting “Unreachable” in response.
Looking through past issues, the closest I’ve found to my problem was a Bug filed in early February which was resolved by a software update. There the issue seemed to be that the pi would be “bounced” between a couple of Cayenne servers. Seeing as the bug appears to have been fixed, I don’t know that this is the issue.
I DO know the pi isn’t locked up, because I’ve been ssh-ing into it to poke around for any problems, and it has been very responsive. That being said, I’m still a newbie to linux, so any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!
