Yes, it's on windows. Though I have a personal node on windows as well
and I havent had problems before and for a long time. Lately I
installed a personal node on my new PC and I experienced RAT crashing.
What I appreciated is that a perl proccess was consuming a lot of CPU
on the server that acts as Venue Server and Bridge Server. I think
that process affected the bridge and maybe RAT had lost some mbus
I eliminated the process that was causing the bridge/venue server
unstability and the system has been stable since then.
I think the problem other nodes have might be related to network
conditions that affect this mbus connection and that RAT doesnt like
I will try to check that.
