My Raspberry Pi 3 Model B freezes randomly. This as been going on since I got it, about 4 months ago. It sometimes freezes on reboot causing reboot loops. It freezes on Chromium when all that's open is 1 Chromium tab. The CPU has 100% usage, when only a single Chromium tab is open in the foreground. Every time it freezes I only have one apparent option — To pull the plug. However based on This post, pulling the plug can corrupt the SD card. I have tried so far:
- Check the system log — Nothing out of line.
Re flash the image — Didn't work.
Check for background processes — the only way I know is CTRL+ALT+DEL like in Windows's Task manager system — I didn't find anything that seemed off to me though.
Look for known errors on GitHub and search through the Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange — found nothing pertaining to the actions of my error.
If this helps anyone help me solve this issue:
- I am running an Apache 2 server on port 80
- Lighttpd on port 8888
- Nginx on port 8976
Any other ideas or possibilities? Is it at all possible to fix this? I can not just force stop something because it froze.
Updated and additional information:
- The Pi freezes sometimes on other operating systems. I have OSMC and Raspbian, they are more common on Raspbian but still happen on OSMC.
- The CPU seems to overheat as well for some reason, it does say 100% CPU full, but from what? Only one Chromium tab is running in the foreground. The PI is hot to the touch. I do have 2 heat sinks on it as well.
Update: Example when it is frozen: 1 termanal window, thats not even running code right now:
