Hi, I have the following problem with teb local planner. Sometimes when a robot is driving the planner stops working for a while, Freuency drops then from 25hz to one loop for 5-50s, yes 50 seconds! Then it never turns back to normal but it oscillates around 5hz.

In the log message, I can only see that control loop missed desired rate, the issue occurs in simulation and real robot, I'm using static global map and small 2,5x2,5 local costmap.

I have enough computer power because it's running at a server.

Is there any useful information I can provide to you?

Issue seems to be independent of teb version (tested on 0.6.14,0.6.13,0.6.0) and from move_base (using deb pkg and build from source the same situation)

ROS Kinetic

Here is my teb config file, but the issue also happens when using default config :

Link to video showing how this affect navigation . At 25s you can see that teb stopped working.
