Temporary Freezing
« on: September 07, 2022, 12:36:07 PM »
Lately I have noted that my RPi loaded with piCore 13 and running headless  via a wifi connection, freezes temporarily but then continues with executing whatever is currently running without errors. I have noted this during the connection when the system takes an abnormal time to accept the password. It sometimes slows down whilst using nano and also slows down whilst running my own scripts.

Temporary freezing is also happening when I run my own startup script on the pi when there is no wifi access in the area. I have not noted any pattern of when this is occurring.

This is probably my own fault since I have been recently experimenting with various configurations.

How does one go about diagnosing such issues?

Hi xuraax
All the slowdowns you mention rely on a network connection. Maybe your wireless connection
is a bit spotty. Do you have a wired connection you can try to see if it makes a difference?

My thoughts on this are exactly as @Rich says it's probably a network problem. I know for sure that it takes a long time to log in via ssh when the linux systems can't do dns lookups against dns to check the ip address. Think it even checks the reverse zone. in-addr.arpa, to see if it finds any hostname. So make sure your pi has fast responses from a dns server.
