Velica GL-B2200 Memory Issue

I have two Velicas that are meshed together wired. I also have WireGuard VPN and AdGuard enabled. What I notice is that after about 6-7 days the memory usage goes to 100% which then the Velicas become unresponsive. Then I have to do a factory reset by holding the button, which is a pain since I have to reconfigure everything again. I also tried to do a power-cycle after reaching 100% of memory usage, but it is still unresponsive.

In the meantime, when I see that the memory usage gets above 70%, I just do a reboot to avoid having to do a factory reset. I have done this about 7 times already having these Velicas.

Has anyone had this issue? If so, what did you do to resolve it?

BTW: Both Velicas have v3.107 installed.

I don’t have the Velica but I have experienced similar things on other routers.
Here is what I did:

  1. Log in to Luci, systems, scheduled tasks
  2. Paste: 30 4 * * 0,4 sleep 70 && touch /etc/banner && reboot
  3. ssh into the router
  4. run: /etc/init.d/cron enable
  5. run: /etc/init.d/cron start
  6. run: crontab -l
  7. check whether you can see ‘30 4…’

Essentially, this restarts your router at 4:30 am every Sunday and Thursday.

We found a problem in wireguard which may cause memory problems. But not sure if this is your case.

We will fix in 3.211 firmware.

I suspect AdGuard also have memory leaks.

When would that firmware be released? I’ll give it a try and see if it is much better.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will try first the new firmware and if that does not work, I’ll have to try your suggestion.

Any update on the new firmware release?
