Soft WDT restart while waiting for client to connect

PostPosted: Sat May 11, 2019 8:17 am

Hi guys! I'm having a strange issue while trying to build a client-server GPS tracking device. The project consists of: 1 ESP8266 client paired with a GPS module and 1 ESP8266 server.

The client listens for connections from the server. When the server polls the client for information (consisting of a connection on port 8081), the client fetches the data from the GPS module and sends a JSON to the server, for further processing.

From time to time, not on a regular basis, the client restarts with error:
Code: Select allets Jan  8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(3,6)

load 0x4010f000, len 1384, room 16
tail 8
chksum 0x2d
csum 0x2d
v951aeffa
~ld



The first attempt in resolving this issue was introducing some delay(0)s in the loops, instead of yield()s, action that made the frequency of the restarts dim. But they still occur.

I'm posting both the client's and the server's codes below:

Furthermore, I managed to decode the stack trace from the error code, and it led me to this:

I, frankly, was not able to track down the issue based on this output. If you can give me a few suggestions about how my code influenced this behavior I'll be very grateful. I understood that the first line of code from the Exception Decoder represents the cause of the error, but I don't understand why run_scheduled_functions() method failed.

Thank you very much and if I missed something, please tell and I'll provide any information I can obtain:)

hi, did you find the problem?.
I too was having problems with the Nodemcu ESP8266 resetting, but a day ago they released Board update for the ESP8266 in Arduino IDE and now when I upload the sketch all works as it should.

Regards,
Melissa

I am getting "Soft WDT reset" when I used both HX711.h and pubsubclient.h
My code is working when I use these libraries separately. That is I can measure weight using HX711 and connect to MQTT broker using two different sketches.
But getting following error when I use them both.

Connecting to TP-LINK_FFAA
