[[ N.B. Original thread title “Roon Server suddenly stopped working reliably ~Wednesday December 16, 2018” ]]
Server is an Ubuntu 18.04 (was 17.04 till this morning), AMD Ryzen 1500X, with 32GB of 2667MHz memory, 512GB NVMe Samsung 960 root, 8TB Western Digital Red Pro.
Roon Bridge is an old Logitech Squeezebox Touch.
I’ve been using Roon successfully without any problems for a bit over a year and suddenly it’s completely flaking out. I first noticed an issue on Wednesday night when it refused to play a DSD64 DSF file. Obviously this needed to be downsampled to PCM 96kHz, but it had done that successfully for the last year. Things got progressively worse to the point where it wouldn’t even play normal CD FLAC files (44.1kHz/16bit). This morning nothing worked and I noticed that my old Ubuntu 17.04 was no longer supported. I upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 and the Roon Server started working again but rapidly jammed. I’ver rebooted my server a couple of times and each time the Roon Server works for a while (less than 20 minutes) before jamming up and becoming unreachable by the Roon Controllers.
Is there an easy way to restart the Roon Server without having to reboot my server?
Where can I find Error Logs for the Roon Server so I can provide more diagnostic information?
Where can I find Upgrade Logs so I can see if a new Roon Server was automatically installed sometime this week?
What more information is needed to help diagnose this problem?
