Node-red crashes Any suggestions on where to start

Sigh......I have a complex environment and complex flows. I have had 3 instances of node-red crashing in the last week. The only log message is

15 Sep 01:37:25 - [red] Uncaught Exception:
15 Sep 01:37:25 - [error] Error: connect ECONNREFUSED

at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (node:net:1187:16)

Can I change any settings/config that would provide me with more of a clue as to where to start looking?

That IP address is my router. I don't explicitly refer to that address or that port anywhere in my flows

It could be anyone of about 12 flows.....My only thought is to pull the network cable to see if that causes the issue.

Any suggestions gratefully received


You can definitely changes the logging level: Logging : Node-RED

Try turning on more detail and see if that helps in identifying the issue at all.

Do you recognise what may be trying to make that connection? Devices ending 1.1 are often your router.

No.......there are a lot of possibilities

just trying to think about them makes me feel quite nauseous

Of course, just to make things worse it is running in docker,


Ok ive made it I just have to wait for it to crash
