Didn't recover from network outage

This is maybe more of an FYI for the engineering team (@ivor ?) than anything else.

I had a prolonged Internet outage yesterday (08:35 to ~21:30). I checked the 'shake this morning, via Dataview, and saw no data. Checked the 'shake and saw it was not connected.

There was a power outage of ~1hr at the same time (08:35), which should not have affected anything because all the networking components, as well as the 'shake are on UPS. I checked anyway, the connection to the 'shake was up, and had not been interrupted, the 'shake itself had not been interrupted:

myshake@raspberryshake:/opt $ uptime
 17:11:21 up 400 days,  3:51,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.45

I checked connectivity to DNS, NTP and raspberryshake server:

myshake@raspberryshake:/opt $ nc -zvw5 53
Connection to 53 port [tcp/domain] succeeded!
myshake@raspberryshake:/opt $ nc -uzvw5 123
Connection to 123 port [udp/ntp] succeeded!
myshake@raspberryshake:/opt $ nc -zvw5 55555
Connection to 55555 port [tcp/*] succeeded!

Seemed a pity to have to reboot, after it being up without problem for 400 days … but I didn’t see any other option. Took a log dump just in case it is of any use in determining why it didn’t reconnect when the Internet connectivity was restored.

Rebooted, and it shows as connected.
Radio link to the 'shake shows normal looking data flow:

Nothing on Dataview yes, but I suppose that will take a while …
