I live in Northern Finland, and since the sky here is not full of planes all the time I get this a lot:
11/10/2014 00:01:15 495 msgs recv'd from dump1090 via faup1090 (0 in last 5m); 634 msgs sent to FlightAware 11/10/2014 00:05:43 no new messages received in 6431 seconds, it might just be that there haven't been any aircraft nearby but I'm going to try to restart dump1090, possibly restart faup1090 and definitely reconnect, just in case... 11/10/2014 00:05:43 attempting to restart dump1090 using '/etc/init.d/fadump1090.sh restart'...

The longest pause last night was almost 20000 secs.
How can I increase this threshold value?
The proper value for my receiver should be in the order of 8-10 hours to prevent re-start attempts
just because there are no flights going on in the vicinity of my receiver.
Secondly, I’m running dump1090 from MR git, i.e. I’m not using fadump1090.
Luckily, ‘/etc/init.d/fadump1090.sh restart’ does not harm the running dump1090 process,
but piaware re-starting an underlying component sounds a bit odd to me, but I have to say
I’m a newcomer in this ADS-B arena. Maybe this is needed because of unreliable el-cheapo
DVB-T sticks or something, but I’s like to habe control of how often the re-start is attempted,
and also would be nice if piaware was not so completely bind to fadump1090.
