Description of Issue

About every 15 minutes I can a pause or stoppage of the playback

This happens until I restart the Roon Server using:
$ sudo systemctl restart roonserver.service
It is ok for a while then slowly starts to increase.

The attached graph shows the regular CPU blips ( I have more if you need)
I do a restart at 3:15ish and the blips stop, playback is fine again!
Also the memory usage drops after a restart…

Any ideas?

@Martin_Webster Tinkering? Really? This has been running for many months without any issues!

Using a VM to host Roon Server is not a supported platform, so I moved your post to #tinkering as this is where it belongs.

Yes, VMs and Dockers are considering tinkering.
