Have been noticing a lot of restarts. Figured it was due to my many config changes while trying to figure out the best way to setup the IotaWatt. I’ve finally come to a IotaWatt/Influx configuration I think works well that is based on Brett’s work (Best practices for influxdb?) (thanks @brettbeeson)
Today, the Iotawatt had the “Dull Red Glow” indicating something wrong with the wifi connection. Cycled power to the IotaWatt and it came up normally.
Went to check the log and saw a lot of “Incomplete HTTP request detected, id 7, restarting.” messages. I counted 77 restarts since 12/13. On average every ~45 minutes. (Attached the log)

From what I can see. “id 7” means this is related to Influx. I skimmed over this thread (InfluxDb issues) that discusses timeouts, post length & influx config with firmware 02_03_16. I’m running 02_03_18.
My config seems pretty basic. 14 CTs, sending mostly watts to Influx, plus a “Main1+Main2” in watts & kWh. (Also attached my config.txt)

I’m sending to a local Influx server at 192.168.1.1 (not a raspberryPi).
I’m guessing the WiFi issue (red glow) was a fluke (It’s only happened once), but pointed me to all the restarts in the log.
