I have a Raspberry Shake that occasionally just stops working by itself. It’s on a UPS (uninterruptible power supply). My router is on a UPS. The switch between the router and Raspberry Shake is also on a UPS.
I know that one of the times of the last failure was around when the power went out in the neighborhood. I could still access the Raspberry Shake and use the Internet, but the software says that it went offline. It never came back automatically to report data.
Rebooting it made it to working again. It does make me wonder why there isn’t a cron job or watchdog process to check the health of the Raspberry Shake. If it’s not working correctly for a period of time, try to start the services back up. If the recording services refuse to come back, then reboot.
If there is a local large earthquake, the power is likely going to flicker. How can I ensure that it’s recording reliably throughout a shaking event? I thought a UPS was sufficient, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The other stuff on UPS seems to work fine, except the software on the Raspberry Shake.
