I am doing a load-test (a compiling) as an ordinary user over ssh (b233).
There is ample disk space as /overlay(/dev/sda1). Disk subsystem appears to be fine (repeated trials).
The info is taken from the console:
root@Omega-745F:/# time dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/admin1/dd.out bs=1024 count=1M
1048576+0 records in
1048576+0 records out

12:50:17 up 9 days, 17:05, load average: 3.79, 3.77, 3.33
The power draw went to 0.2A from the usual (wifi ON, CPU idle) 0.12/0.13A. The metal shield's temperature appeared to be normal.
In fact, I have run the process few times after resetting the power.
Omega2+ goes dead all of a sudden while in the middle, every itme. The amber LED goes OFF. No specific log on the console. SSH connection drops.
I guess this is because the load was too high ? Is it because of a thermal shutdown mechanism that gets activated ?
