A quick question about crontab
Every few hours - like once a day (very irregularly) - my mirror just goes black. The Magicmirror is still running and everything but it’s not displaying anything anymore. A
ctrl+rrefreshes the site and all modules show up again without restarting the process via pm2.
I would like to automatize that with crontab, if possible. Does anyone know how tell crontab to execute a key combination? For now I’ve put
pm2 reload mm. Still have to see if that works as intended but a simple refresh would be nicer.
Of course if anybody knows how to fix the “going blank” issue I’ll be more than happy go that route. I couldn’t figure out yet what causes it. All I can say is that the CPU load goes down to 0-1% and the available free memory is suspiciously high while the script is still running. This never happened before I updated to v2.4.1.
@madscientist others have mentioned commenting out the updater module
@sdetweil also, i don’t think u can send keystrokes
Thanks for your reply. I have already commented out the updater module (following the other thread quietly) but that hasn’t changed anything. It’s a pity you can’t send keystrokes but for now the
pm2 reload...seems to do the job. At least according to
pm show...it was successfully reloaded this morning.
