I’m running hassio on a pi 3b+ and I tried to update to 0.118 this morning and left the thing running for a half hour. When I come back, the webpage is still down. I ping it and it’s somewhat alive 50% success. I ssh into it (which takes abundantly too long) and eventually see that the load looks like this:
Load average: 153.92 142.68 106.58 2/892 545
Sweet geebus! I tried waiting another half hour and the thing is still unresponsive and the ssh terminal dies by itself (Connection reset). I wait a little longer and try to ssh in again. Eventually, the ssh connects and seems more responsive but the load is still over 100. I decide to issue a
reboot in hopes that it’ll come back around but the thing seems to be in the process of an update so I’m hoping this doesn’t break stuff.
What’s the proper way to handle this situation? I have had this happen a few times in the past and there doesn’t seem to be a good way to get into the system to restart it or stop the processes from grinding the whole thing to a halt.
TBH, I’m getting really tired of trying to use this under powered hardware to run Home Assistant because it seems to be happening more now than it used to. I’m running a few addons and I think those cause more churn: esphome, file editor, duckdns, mosquitto, unifi controller, etc. I’m thinking of just pulling the trigger on a nuc and calling it a day.
