Config_error


(Bobby) #1

Does anyone know what is the significance of CONFIG_ERROR in the ‘health’ of an app and how it might affect the system? I had a failed device, which I replaced but now all of the apps associated with the old device are listed with config error. I really don’t want to delete everything. I tried update, click done but no luck. @Aaron , @slagle any ideas? It affects stock apps and custom apps.


Rule machine - as per the app developer, this app is no longer available for new installs, distribution, or support
Why is there not a remove from all smart apps option?

I’ll look into this for you.

When I found this “health” page about two months ago, I had 5 CONFIG_ERRORs. Three of them were SHM Custom Rules, two Pistons. I watched them for a while and they were still working OK. About a week ago, after the meltdown, I removed them and recreated the same and are now showing HEALTHY and I can sleep better :slight_smile:

I have a couple guesses, state, updates, but they are just guesses…

I’ve been doing the same thing for a long time just to sleep better, but I still wonder what other good does it do for healing these.

So most of these are part of the upcoming health check system. For now, they can be largely ignored.

(Don’t ask for a timeline for this, we don’t have one right now.)

Hey Tim, what’s the timeline on that?

:grin:

It must be doing something… I had 5 CONFIG_ERRORS, I rebuilt them and now they are HEALTHY. Sooo… it does see a change or is it a random result? Hard to ignore :confused:

Nice, no time line asked, but would this be dynamic or a static health check that runs in the background and discover things without any user interaction?
