Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

Thanks all!!! I have now implemented SocketTimeout as per Eirikur's suggestion.

And thanks Hippy for the information about your experiences. I'm feeling much better. I hope we know the cause and fix. For a while it was a real puzzler....RDK

Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

Trevor....I moved the MySQL?MariaDB code and functions to a 16 GB USB memory stick. All locally saved data go there, as well as the program logs and error logs.. So far I'm only using a small fraction of that memory stick. And, yes, I do backup and e-mail the file once a week....RDK

Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

I may have found the answer. Checking the two web server databases (one local and the other remote), I discovered that the local database has one more record than the remote database and MySQL database. The program logic does local, remote and MySQL postings in that order. Thus it appears that the c...

Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

Folks....Thanks for all of your comments and suggestions. If this were a one-off situation then I would be considering them all very seriously. However, this is a situation where three independent Pi's (various models and OS's) which are simultaneously "Pausing" their data collection Python programs...

Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

In the sort term and not sure this will have any effect, I just did an sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade and restart on all three affected pi's.

If this was an issue on Windows PC's I would suspect a virus....RDK

Re: Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

Thanks, but I'm not sure I understand. Are you suggesting some sort of diagnostic I could be running? Regardless, this event seems to be happening simultaneously on three Pi's and not on several others?? The UPS boards have a restart count down timer which I could start using, but that is a bit dras...

Pi' Python programs "Pausing"

I have a puzzler! I have 6 Pi's running here. Over the past two weeks three of them have " paused " the Python program which is running. All three have done that at basically the same time, I log data every 5 minutes so all three stopped logging within that time span. Details: Two are Pi 2 model B a...

Re: DSN defaults and how can they be displayed?

I'm working with and testing a new DNS server and I don't want the name-servers to be picked up from the router for DHCP. When I'm done testing I will want things to revert to the router settings. I could do it all using static address settings, but would have preferred to use DHCP with name-servers...

Re: DSN defaults and how can they be displayed?

Yes,

Code: Select all

cat /etc/resolv.conf 
does show the DNS servers, but does not show the related network adapter info. In my case I have eth0, eth1 and wlan0 and thus I would like to see the DNS info for all three network adapters....RDK

DSN defaults and how can they be displayed?

When one does an IFCONFIG to see the current network devices, it displays everything except the assigned DNS servers. Is there an easy way to show that information? Also is there a way to change the default DNS server settings? Yes, I know that I can setup static addresses and there specify the DNS ...
