I’ve been feeding since February 10th 2014 and about once a month the FlightFeeder seems to mysteriously stop sending data to FlightAware. The receiver still seems to be operational as the network lights are still active however even by LAN the box is unresponsive. The only way to recover is to reboot the power supply. Since it happens just about every month the cause must be the same thing like a buffer or system log that fills up.
Since I pride myself at having a station that never goes down by way of having an UPS and a Deisel generator at the station location. The network is also fail-safe with dual redundant up-links and fail-over routing.
My questions are:
Is this a known problem?
Is there a fix?
Should I just reboot the radio once a month to keep the issue from occurring in the first place?
Why does is take a minimum 6 hours before an off-line notice is sent? Since someone is here all of the time a faster sent notice would allow us to reboot the receiver more quickly and not be down for over 6 hours.
The last 2 outages seem to be exactly a month apart…
