I'm after some advice. I've been an avid user of Raspberry Pi's for some time and just love how good they are for tinkering around with without breaking my larger main system, helps me learn all the time.
I've recently started using my Raspberry Pi (3b+) to automate several task. I have three mono and two python services running, well I say running......
Essentially if any more than two of these need to process data together the pi can't cope. Top command tells me RAM usage is often 90-100% and the CPU running at between 115-130% before system starts to error out and SSH becomes inaccessible.
I feel like I need a device with more grunt and more memory but the plethora of devices out these to chose from makes it really hard to decide.
So far I can't make up my mind between:
Banana Pi M3
Asus Tinkerboard S
Can anybody help me with some advice?
Ideally I want something stable....around the £40-£80 mark. Can run a familiar is such as raspbian, Debian, Ubuntu, armbian.......
