I have node red installed on my Pi and I have been working with it all day, no errors whatsoever. I left it on for a couple of hours and for some reason it shut down. I didn't notice and thought nothing of it. However, now when I start my Pi it works all fine, but starting node red will shut down the Pi entirely. Is there any way I can check whats going wrong? I suspect there might be an error with the flows that i have created, because the command terminal does reach the "Flows Started" stage. Also, I can find the directory where my flows are saved for the life of me so I can't delete those and try again.
Yes, periodically node-red will freeze if you include certain code within a given flow, and I occasionally find myself manually editing the flow of the recently added code to relieve the issue. I will then need to look at the console logs and try to get an idea of what is causing the issue. Node-red is fairly stable when things are running right, but I do know sometimes nodes are not programmed properly and using them can muck up the flow stability. This I seen happen on nodes that I import from the install palette, I would test out, such as the Arduino nodes, that I can't ever seem to get working properly and just ends up glitching and freezing my Node-red runtime. Not much I can do when I try to use these nodes via normal and these issues occur. I unfortunately end up just deleting that particular node for mean time, and hope a update comes along to fix it.
I think you are having trouble reading data slower than it should be for the application timeouts try sd cards with high data rates or free up the ram
