    Oblivian,
    Originally, I originally purchased an R-Pi, and followed the directions on here to get it up and running from scratch. For whatever reason, it seems to have worked great the first time I did it. It's worked flawlessly for a long time. Until recently.

    Reading your posts there must have been changed something.
    If it shows the behavior even with a fresh SD card, your device might have a technical problem.

    Before you start doing anything with your RasPi, if I was you, I will go and check CPU utilisation on your RasPi.
    Maybe you have a task which keeps crashing or freezing and using too much CPU and that's why it's going over tepm?
    Type in your console simple :
    Code:
    sudo top
    And that will show your CPU usage, focus on "load average" which is showing load on your CPU in last 15, 5, 1 minute.
    Mine looks like that
    @RasPi 2 v.B
    Code:
    load average: 0.56, 0.56, 0.52
    Top 4 tasks
    Code:
    10813 fr24      20   0   31980  13692   2164 R  25.2  1.4 700:23.76 dump1090-mutabi
    10889 piaware   20   0   12148   8796   5132 R  17.6  0.9 345:24.02 fa-mlat-client
    10790 fr24      20   0  114432   9016   4700 S   6.9  0.9 139:54.26 fr24feed
    10837 piaware   20   0   22800  11448   5980 S   2.9  1.2  57:18.47 piaware
    Which is a little above 50% of usage CPU.

    You have much stronger RasPi than me so it shouldn't struggle at all.
    Go and check your software if doesn't help then start digging in hardware.
