    Reliably detecting the problem isn't simple.
    Especially if you don't even know what the problem is.

    The reboot shouldn't hurt anything, so that's a reliable solution.

    Often such problem are caused by an insufficient power supply, the Raspberry Pi Official Power Supply is recommended.

    You could also just reboot the RPi every night automatically.
    This should take care of it:
    Code:
    echo '0 3 * * * root /sbin/reboot' | sudo tee /etc/cron.d/nightly-reboot
    Thanks for your suggestions. I think rebooting every night is a bit extreme - I'd rather only reboot when necessary, hence trying to find out an automated way to do that.

    I'm trying another power supply to see if it's any better. I have quite a few Pis running and have never had power supply issues but I gather from other threads, that the ADS-B USB sticks are a bit more finicky about power than the Pi. I've now got it on one where I can see the voltage and current output and it's getting about 5.3V now. Let's see how long it lasts...

    Is anybody but me having trouble with this? My feeder stops periodically (not sure why) and the first I hear of it is when I see my membership has been downgraded and that I stopped feeding data a few days before.
    Also can anybody suggest something that I could monitor on my system (RasPi running the FR24 image) to see when I'm stopping feeding? Obvious places to look, etc?
    Thanks,
    Mark
