    Homeseer SEL Pro crashing

    This is a brand new out-of-the-box never used installation. Following Plugins installed: ZWave, Lutron Caseta, Nest, WeatherWU (all enabled), and disabled Yamaha, MyQ.

    Nest and WeatherWU are configured, Lutron has one Pico test event, and one Pro bridge configured, that works nicely. Nest has two thermostats, besides a single too-many-call API event on Nest side, works. WeatherWU pulls in some test data of temp and rain.

    Symptom is that with nobody logged in, Mono crashes after a couple of hours to two days. All Mono threats are gone. "go" does not restart HS, need to reboot. Mono crashes typically sometimes during the night with nobody using the Lutron Pico.

    On a freshly booted system, with nobody logged into WebUI, I am seeing both cores hovering around 35-40% on HSConsole.exe. I am seeing sometimes six of these HSConsole threads running, with one at 80% and the second at 40% CPU. Memory around 350MB.

    My console is the only inbound connection (sshd). There are three outbound connections to WU, Nest, and HS. HS on flat network on Juniper switch with DHCP from SonicWALL perimeter firewall. Lutron and Nest in same bcast domain.

    Essentially just got the box, and did a little lab setup on the weekend.

    HS3 version is 368. Box is licensed and registered.

    Within the first few minutes after reboot, CPU hovers between 1 - 3 %.

      Try disabling Auto Discover of Foscams. The Console process CPU usage was high until I did this on my SEL.

      Tools > Setup > Cameras

      Also recommend installing Webmin. Makes administering the SEL much easier.


        I did not make a difference. What I am observing is that HSConsole races up consuming more and more CPU. It went from 2% to 134% on htop, consuming 60% on both cores, and almost 500MB, starting out with 130MB of memory use.


          Do you have any recurring events enabled?

            We have a couple of other users SEL crashing when using the Nest plugin. Can you disable this plugin and see the results.


              My SEL was crashing like that. By process of elimination turning plug-ins on and off I found it was the Nest plug-in. Mine works great when Nest is turned off. I hate that because I have a lot of Nest products and I haven't found a way to get any help to fix it. HS won't help because its not their product. No other way to get support except posting in forums. I think I lost $40 lol.
