Re: MiniUnifi intermittently failing on new (to me) iMac

I have no idea why this is happening. I've tweaked the code a bit to try to keep the plugin from crashing when it happens:

I appreciate you trying. Installed. I'll let you know how it goes.

Re: MiniUnifi intermittently failing on new (to me) iMac

Didn't take long this time. Interesting that the first failure seemed to resolve (I'm assuming) with the retry in 10 seconds, and no other plugins were affected. But then two minutes later the whole usual string of plugins all experienced failures in the usual order.

Also it's interesting that my remote Indigo console disconnected when this happened. I've seen that fairly often when this happens.

I think, despite the fact that it's always the miniUnifi plugin that's affected first, there may be something wrong with the OS and/or networking setup on this iMac. Everything was 100% fine on my old iMac. I'm not sure what to look for though. I think I'll start with disconnecting ethernet and turning on WiFi. That could rule out a couple of things on the network side.

Any other ideas?

Re: MiniUnifi intermittently failing on new (to me) iMac

The error was in a different part of the code this time, but it's still at a point where the plugin has to communicate wit the main server process, and it's failing. It's inter-process communication, so unlikely to be networking, unless there's something really weird going on. Which there might be.

Do you have both ethernet and Wifi enabled on this machine at the same time? That's usually not a good idea. If only one, then switching to the other might provide useful info.

Also, check Console.app to see if there's any significant errors being reported. There might be something at the OS level at the time this is happening.

No, I'm careful to only use one or the other at a time for that very reason.

At first glance, the only suspicious thing I see in the Console app is a constant and unending stream of these messages in launchd.log:

I've mentioned this before on another thread having to do with Indigo on Monterey, but never got any sort of diagnosis. Do you see these messages on your system?

OK, I'll start a new thread on it and see if I can get any attention.

Re: MiniUnifi intermittently failing on new (to me) iMac

This issue has me stumped. I've noticed that every time the string of failures occurs in Indigo, the remote Indigo console I have connected on another computer also disconnects. And if I'm using the other computer at the time, I also see Finder warnings about mounted iMac volumes becoming unavailable.

So this seems to obviously be a networking issue. It happens with both WiFi and Ethernet (one at a time), so it's not a bad switch or port or something. But strangely, if I leave a continuous ping running on the iMac, it doesn't show any interruption. So that points to a software thing on the iMac. And I've wiped and reloaded Mac OS, so it's not something corrupted there.

I'll keep looking at it.
