I'm seeing consistent dips in my Obelisk's performance. Why is this happening?

This is resolved with the v1.1.0 or alter firmware. Upgrade now.

Seeing dips in your monitoring activity is currently expected. There is code that exits the cgminer app every 30 minutes to maintain stability. Mining is automatically restarted, but it takes a bit of time to ramp up again.

This looks worse in the Obelisk Dashboard than it actually is. The hashrate drop in the graph is deceptive, since each data point is a five minute average, and resetting cgminer resets that average. Your actual hashrate does not drop much, since cgminer restarts full mining in just a few seconds.
