Pioreactor slow and low responsiveness

Hi everyone,

i have an issue with my pioreactor connectivity. A bit of info:

-raspberry pi zero2 w
-5v 3amp PSU
-sandisk ultra 128 GB micro SD
-connected to a 2.4 ghz local router setup as a wifi AP with static IP address
-pi has also a static IP
-distance between pio and router is hardly 50 cm
-i can access the web interface via the IP address only with no delay
-i can SSH into the pi using both name.local and ip address (no delay either)

Issue is the pio show as offline most of the time. Moreover, when it is online, starting any task is very slow and delayed. It takes about 40 s to, for example, start the stirring.

Any ideas what might be happening?
Thanks! :slight_smile:

Hi @arwain,

Try the following:

  1. In the Config page in the UI, find the section [cluster.topology]
  2. Change the leader_address= to the static IP you’ve been using.
  3. Save, and reboot the Pioreactor after it successfully saves.

Does that help the performance?
