FA stopped receiving data from my device

This morning i have realized that FA stopped receiving data from my device, statistics are not updated any longer:

In the log there’s no transfer documented between 06:08 and 06:50, later transfer of data is documented after 07:00, but no data were shown until i rebooted the whole device at 07:30

Since this time it seem to be working again:


But the hourly distribution is not updating:

Any ideas what caused this?
Dump1090-fa and all the other feeders were running fine all the time.

Well if you wouldn’t have rebooted, you could have checked the system log.

I checked the previous logs and found this for a certain amount of time:

Currently it’s working again

Oh they had server issues for around an hour, times in UTC:

Nov 08 05:09:06 pi piaware[555]: timed out waiting for alive message from FlightAware, reconnecting...
Nov 08 05:10:48 pi piaware[555]: Connection attempt with adept server at piaware.flightaware.com/1200 timed out
Nov 08 05:56:24 pi piaware[555]: encrypted session established with FlightAware

Roughly 0500Z to 0600Z.

Ok, that fits to what i have seen.
Maybe my reboot wasn’t necessary, but it did not hurt :slight_smile:

This was due to a problem during planned network maintenance that caused everything to lose connectivity for a short time; then the adept servers rate-limited new connections to protect themselves from 25k clients all reconnecting at once, so it took a while for everything to reconnect fully. Sorry for the hassle.
