As with any system there are often considerations that need to (or at least should) be made after a crash.
Recently I have been experiencing crashes on my pi4/ssd setup. (Samsung SSD/the recommended dongle to the SSD and a 3.5A power supply)
I reviewed my automations and have found some orphaned references that I believe could have been part of the problem. (We’ll see)
My setup is <1 year old and I only have around 60 Insteon devices and around 50 automations. (not a big install I am guessing).
I have not yet opted for things like an alternative to the standard DB, etc. (IOW - it is currently a plain vanilla setup)
This post is NOT an ask for help debugging my setup - but rather an ask that when HA crashes, what should one look at from the SYSTEM aspect???
That is, can the DB become corrupted? (And is there a fix for this?)
Can the file system become corrupted?
Should I revert to a previous snapshot that wasn’t crashing? (Is that actually a NEED as in being able to restore non-corrupted objects?)
Any thoughts around this aspect of system maintenance are appreciated.
Thanks anyone who responds here…
