Hi,

I’ve recently purchased two FLIR/Point Grey GigE Flea3 cameras. I’ve not seen them freeze, but I’ve only run them for hours or a few days, using the ADPointGrey driver (flycapture library) on RHEL7. I hope to get more experience with them over the coming months. 

We do have a couple of AVT Manta G-125 cameras that we have ran for months with no issues (using ADProsilica on RHEL6 and RHEL7).

Cheers,
Matt

They become unresponsive and an IOC reboot is required in some cases even power cycle of the camera.  We're running them at toughly 1 Hz so they should get overworked.
