Summary

Various automatic device reboot scenarios can be configured in the Auto Reboot section. Automatic reboots can be used as a prophylactic or precautionary measure that ensures the device will self-correct some unexpected issues, especially related to connection downtime. This chapter is an overview of the Auto Reboot section of {{{name}}} devices. If you're having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device's WebUI, you should turn on "Advanced WebUI" mode. You can do that by clicking the "Basic" button under "Mode", which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.

Ping Reboot

The Ping Reboot function periodically sends ICMP or Wget requests to a specified IP address or host and waits for a response. If no response is received, the device will attempt the same action a defined number of times at a defined frequency. If there is still no response, the device will execute the specified action (reboot, by default).

The Ping Reboot section contains one preconfigured rule by default:

To enable the default rule, use the off/on slider next to it. You can add more rules with the 'Add' button or delete them using the "Delete" button. If you wish to customize a rule, click the button that looks like a pencil next to it. Refer to the figure and table below for information Ping Reboot configuration.

Periodic Reboot

Periodic Reboot is a function that reboots the device at a specified time interval regardless of other circumstances. It can be used as a prophylactic measure, for example, to reboot the device once at the end of every day. Reboot time is chosen by selecting time interval boxes in the scheduler table to indicate on which days/hours reboot will occur.
