Always on repl randomly turning itself off for some hours.

I have a repl that is collecting data every half hour. At least once a day the repl seems to for no reason turn itself off for 1-4 hours. If I open the repl during that time I need to manually click start again. Is this a limitation of the Always on feature? This makes it hard for me to reliably collect this data every 30 minutes like i'm intending.

That sounds like always-on Repls aren't doing what they're supposed to, you should report that to Repl. Maybe https://repl.it/bugs?

They updated the site to reflect this too: https://repl.it/site/pricing

Yes, this is really annoying and I have yet to find a way around this. This also just happens randomly with non-always-on repls when you're running a long task that can't be interrupted - it'll just restart. It's not like it's using all of the resources.

Yes. That is the time that repl.it is restarting their machines to lower costs.

What you should do to combat this is

  • have more repls collecting data
  • collect data at a higher rate
