317s storage and temperature acting strange

Sat Sep 21, 2019 12:09 pm

Hi,

I have a couple of 317s behaving in the same strange way for 2 things I have seen. They are in different locations and run 6.45.6.

Important is that I have at least 4 units with the same symptoms as below so I think they might be related and caused by software or some issue in hw batch.

1) Free space is low but no files on flash.

free-hdd-space: 2500.0KiB
total-hdd-space: 16.0MiB
bad-blocks: 0%

I have tried the fix space npk but no change.

2) High temperature reported but ambient temperature is ok.

CPU load is 0%

temperature: 58C
cpu-temperature: 41C
fan1-speed: 4140RPM
fan2-speed: 3975RPM

We have been on site and its not too hot in the rooms.

That's normal. Built-in flash holds runing ROS, it's just not exposed to you. Only part of flash storage is exposed, but it's highly advisable not to use it fir anything write-intensive ... if flash fails (e.g. due to write-wear), your CRS will become paper-weight.
