RPI3 running out of memory
I think you’re missing the point.
If you have two modules, X and Y, and you disable one and the problem persists? What’s your diagnosis?
How long do you allow the system to run with one module disabled and no fault before you are able to actually, definitively, able to declare that the problem is the sole result of that module?
Even if you can declare the issue gone, how do you know that it wasn’t an issue related to the combination of modules?
Without explicit logging and debug information to actually see a stack trace of the fault, there is no way to declare “anything” by disabling a module.
@ember1205 taking a step back from modules, are you sure MM is the problem?
Have you had it run “idle” so with desktop open only for some time?
Is there a way to monitor ram usage and to monitor which app eventually fills the memory?
Which version of electron do you use?
Which Raspberry Pi? I assume 3b?
Which Raspbian version?
Have you tried running in serveronly and keeping it open on another laptop? If that works, I would assume the modules themselves are not the problem…
@lavolp3 he’s been fighting this for some time now… we’ve both experienced the same problems…
but mine not recently…
I run the same modules and also another one of mine that does additional images, and my systems run on and on… without problems… Pi4 (buster) , jetson Nano(ubuntu) , Pi 3(stretch) , odroid (ubuntu).
we have increased swap space
turned on and off disable cache in electron
he has tried current 3.1.13, and 6.0.12 (as I recall)
I am running electron 3.1.13 on all
What size SD card do you have?
Have you ran
selected the expand memory the second screen?
I had that problem when first starting MM. No problems any more with 32 GB of space.
@johntech Huh? This is referring to RAM memory, not hard drive space. I was writing to explain how you can extend the swap by using filesystem space to prevent the system crashing from running out of RAM.
Sorry if there was any confusion - I actually manage a Raspberry Pi operating system, so am very familiar with the tools and techniques available.
@Vizulize Sorry noob here just learning!
@johntech no worries! “Memory” is often confused in this context. Hope you learned something
