GRPC on Balena Docker, Balena OS restarts itself after a certain progress. Here is what GRPC part looks like when compiling:
# Install GRPC RUN echo "Installing GRPC" ENV GRPC_VERSION=v1.32.0 # https://github.com/grpc/grpc/blob/master/test/distrib/cpp/run_distrib_test_raspberry_pi.sh RUN GRPC_DIR=/grpc && \ git clone --depth 1 --branch $GRPC_VERSION --recurse-submodules https://github.com/grpc/grpc.git $GRPC_DIR && \ # gRPC on the host GRPC_BUILD_DIR=$GRPC_DIR/cmake/build && \ mkdir -p $GRPC_BUILD_DIR && \ cd $GRPC_BUILD_DIR && \ cmake \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DgRPC_INSTALL=ON \ -DgRPC_BUILD_TESTS=OFF \ -DgRPC_SSL_PROVIDER=package \ ../.. && \ make install && \ cd ../../.. && rm -rf $GRPC_DIR
The base image used was
For overcoming the issue, I had to make sure that CPU freq is always at highest by specifying
/boot/config.txt. This prevented Balena OS from restarting in the middle of the compilation. I thought that restarting can be because of very much high processing required during GRPC compilation.
Not sure if it is a bug or I was missing something.
