RE: fault tolerance
@mfalkvidd I will put up a write up on what i did. Including my health check script (which may address some of the other items on how I handle the failures ect)
Keepalived with the check script and health script is what I use to keep tabs and it also moves that virtual IP back and forth allowing for the same ip to stay in use and restart the binary when needed
So right now I have my mysensors gateway(s) setup on 2 raspberry pi's. They are both setup for mqtt gateway which is on a diff server.
I use keepalived to determine which pi should be running the mysgw binary.
This works pretty well. However I am considering changing over to 2 network gateway configurations and use a floating virtual IP.
Does anyone have any pro's/cons for one method over the other?
The pro that I can see is being able to use other programs that can communicate over the network gateways to do OTA updates. As well as being able to use bindings for things like discovery.
RE: Strange Error when pigw failed
so it seems that in short it's saying the message length didn't equal what it should.
i checked and this so far isn't a common message in my logs other than when things go bad.
I think the best thing I can do is to have a watchdog script monitor for entries like that and restart the gateway service.
Strange Error when pigw failed
So I had an issue yesterday where my pigw started acting up. The mysgw binary was running, but got dumped in to my logging DB TONS AND TONS of the following entries. Something to the tune of a few million records over the course of the day.
anyone know what this is? I am trying to determine the root cause or atleast something i can trigger a reset off of.
RE: Lots of Repeater nodes? (new info December 2017 requested)
saw those, some were pretty old (4 years ) so i figured i would ask.
