Hi @Sengolda,

It’s possible your Droplet gets too much worked up and kills your bot automatically in order to avoid any issues. What I’ll suggest is checking your /var/log/messages file for any KILL signals.

You’ll most probably need to upgrade if you notice these signals. This means your Droplet was not able to co-op with the load your bot was creating.
