Hello person, how are you? Could you help me ? I use LEDE 17.01 and would like to know the exact command to make the router restart every day. Thankful.
And maybe you should consider upgrade to 18.06.02 if supported by your device.
A situation where periodic rebooting is required to stay operational means there is a bug. You should help to identify it for the developers.
Does the router work well, so it is not necessary to reboot the router? Is it 100% forever?
There is no such thing as forever, but routers are supposed to work for weeks without needing to restart.
Why do you think you have to reboot the router everyday?
I believe it does not have to be every day, but once a week. It is to maintain 100% stability.
- Are you noticing anything that makes you believe the router is becoming unstable with uptime, or is this proactive behavior?
- Like @rj-45 why do you think you need to reboot everyday?
The longest uptime on a OpenWrt router I recall recording was ~124 days. I've never experienced a crash or loss of stability.
Virtual routers, have even longer uptime.
In more professional-commercial settings, I have routers that have 5+ years uptime...so I agree with @Hegabo, this constant rebooting - if warranted, should probably be inspected for a bug.
I really did not know it could work for so long .. well, so apparently I will not need this command to reboot. Thank you for your help.
Yeah, just keep it running. If you observe frequent problems, please report them so that the developers can look into them.
I use "luci-app-watchcat". Periodic reboot (every 3 days)
on the other hand, rebooting every night handles a hole lot of things nicely: reconnect pppoe-session, clear dnscache, reset counters... and it "protects" against the occasional memory leak.
