Yep thought that was the case, thanks for the reply
@rts58 I stand corrected the latest version of MMM-System-Stats locks up after 13hours of the Pi being on, I’ve left a message on his github so hopefully it will be fixed as it’s the Pi’s only true stat reading for everything that you need to know the Pi is doing. Oh if your not using video modules you can get 16Mb more ram by taking it from the graphics if your on a Pi 3B+ You can use the desktop
Start Menu, Preferences, Raspberry Pi configuration, Performance, then change GPU memory
or use Terminal
Then it will ask you to reboot
I’ve got a issue with the latest MMM-SystemStats locking up every 13hours all other modules work fine and this was working fine prior to the latest update 2/3days ago. I’ve raised it on the devs github page, I know @Mykle1 did Something like this but on another level so think it would kill my Pi if I used it?
EDIT @Mykle1 module doesn’t kill it, it just doesn’t load on the Pi
@bhepler wow never knew about the overheating symbol good to know, Everyone with a Pi should get a good heatsink and a fan fan not essential but helps loads.
@lamachine you may find youll need to setup a Cron Job as Legacy taxes the Pi memory a little more and causes the temps to be higher a heatsink is a good addition all is still well within spec so nothing to worry about.
I’ve got a fan on mine as well so when I have my monitor on which basically means I’m using the Pi and with that drops the Pi temp about 13c, when the Pi is just having the modules run in the background temps in a 20c room are about 46/47c, with the monitor powered up and playing with the Pi temps can go up another 10c so 56c still well within spec and 56c isn’t with the fan going.
@rts58 get MMM-SystemStats works well for the Pi and you can see memory,cpu and temp readings very handy when your running a Pi, if it ever happens that it goes black screen from days of use you will need to set a Cron job that refreshes the MM so memory starts over again hope that helps
@rts58 as mentioned GL causes all sorts of other issues for the Pi really not advisable
@anthony yeah found GL caused black screen and running out of ram that’s why I have a Cron Job running every 12hours as after 24hours it would go dark, hence Cron job every 12hours
@anthony mines been running for 5days because I was trying to get GL running to see what it was like but so many problems with that on the Pi, anyway yep that’s the readings I just took them today, I have MMM-SystemStats you may want to look at it for the Pi
