Indigo Web Server stopped responding (version 2022.1)

My trusty Mac Mini 2012 died a few weeks ago, and after a new Indigo re-install onto my Mac Pro, I have had the latest version of Indigo (2022.1) running fine for a few weeks ... until just now....

Suddenly today I noticed that Indigo Touch failed to connect to the server. Not even the direct connection on the internal network to the correct IP number... it would just time out.

Running the Indigo client on a different Mac, I could connect fine to the server, even the log seemed to receive zwave commands...
Connecting from a web browser to the Server would time-out though...

I then vnc'ed to the server, opened Indigo client on the server and then opened a control page, and clicking the button to open the controlpage inside the browser would also time out.

I then went into the "start local server" dialog, stopped the server and re-launched and all is well again.

I am now looking through the logfile for today, and at first glance I can't see much wrong... There are very few "Web Server" lines though, but only from this morning when everything was still working fine.

What could be causing this, and what (and where) should I look for the cause... so I can find out how to prevent this ?
My previous mac (with an older version of Indigo) had been running 24/7 for years withouth any restart... so I'm eager to find the cause of this...

Are there any errors in the event log that happened after it was working but before you restarted the server?

None that I can find.

If I search for the term 'Web Server' I can see a few entries in the morning which are fine... and then in the evening when I restarted the server. Nothing in between.

If I search for the term 'Warning' the only warning that comes up (apart from some plugins that need updating) was when I was quitting the server:
Code: Select all
2022-06-23 21:32:39.259   Application   Stopping plugin "HomeKitLink Siri 0.3.3" (pid 23810)
2022-06-23 21:33:03.944   Warning   process (pid 23810) failed to quit after polite request -- forcing it to quit now


I did find a few crash reports in macos console, about ffmpeg, also pointing to HomeKitLink Siri, but those where from the days before.

Could it be that a plugin takes down the web server ? Surely not ?

Each plugin runs in it's own sandboxed process, so there isn't a direct way that a plugin can take down another. But, given that both the web server and the HomeKitLinc plugin use the network, it might be indicative of some kind of network issue on the Mac.
