    LMS 7.9.2 on Synology looses clients, lms stops working after 10-20h

    Dear forum,

    I have major issues with my multiroom setup with the latest LMS 7.9.2 on my synology 1513+. The precise software versions and setup is at the end of this post. All software has been updated to the latest available version. The problem:

    The overall multiroom setup has been working for ca. 1,5 years now with only occasional problems, usually a disconnected client once in a while which always was a nuisance but it never got to a state where I felt to fix it for good (although the WAF was impacted a lot). A reboot of the client usually solved it. Now, after some recent updates to both the synology NAS OS (DSM), the most recent LMS version provided by user pinkdot, and also the max2play version (2.48) the overall setup is as good as unusable and the debugging is a headache. Here are the problems:

    1. LMS seems to just stop working roughly after a few hours of operation (ca. 20h). The web interface is not reachable anymore. There is now error, the browser just seems to load forever without showing the LMS interface. Only solution: Killing the server and restarting it. The log shows many entries concerning the sharetunes plugin but I am not sure what it means (please see below).

    2. Clients disconnect arbitrarily after 1-2h. There are two different types of disconnet. Most often, they can not be seen anymore in LMS (after LMS has been restarted) but they still are accessible in the network (both per ssh and the max2play web interface). Sometimes they disappear completely from the network. There logs do not show any information, the just disconnect.

    3. If the system works (usually after rebooting all clients and the server and then for a few minutes) playing music first works but then the music suddenly stops playing for some time (seconds to minutes) and then sometimes the restart playing again.

    Usually, bringing all up-to-date to the latest versions is a good fix but not this time. Any ideas what is going on?

    best

    Thanks, good idea. The symptoms seem very similar still I doubt it. All clients and the server have a stable and running internet connection. I verified this by

    a) running software updates at clients and server from sources at the internet without any problems several times.
    b) using ping from clients and servers to hosts outside my local netowork which also worked flawless.
