By default, the RiseVision client is setup to reboot the box each night at 03:00am.
For a ChromeOS based client, is it recommended to disable this reboot ?

Thierry, Wayne,

Nightly reboots are recommended, but not required.

Thank you Blake! So now that the random shutdown glitch has been fixed in the Chrome update, we should be OK to set a nightly reboot? Should the reboot be set through the Rise Vision platform or through CMC?

Wayne,

I like to schedule my reboots through Rise Vision. Keep in mind the update to Chrome OS fixes the Rise Player crashing issue.

Hey guys,

Everyone says reboot is recommended but not required. What are the implications of not rebooting? Are there memory issues on a box that runs continually? Specifically, this box is ChromeOS running the latest Rise Vision Chrome App (rebranded) on Device Management.

Wendi,

Based on the content playing in the Presentation, there is the possibility that there could be a memory leak in some content like Web Pages that could cause issues, that if not released can start causing issues on the Display. Also if you have a lot of videos, multiple Presentations, and memory or CPU heavy content, a regular reboot is good to clear out any system issues that could be interfering with the machine running optimally, like OS updates, management settings, etc.

However if you are not having any issues with your Displays as they are now, it is not a requirement by any stretch of the imagination, just a recommendation :)

Thanks!
