This guide is meant to explain how to enable the appropriate debug commands for logging during random reboot situations, and which logging to collect for troubleshooting, as in general there are multiple triggers that can cause a device to reboot.
The information gathered will help to analyze the root cause.
Please make sure that all of the logs collected cover the same time period.
Enabling debug printouts at devices starting Firmware version 6.40 and newer.
If possible, use a separate syslog server to capture the data over a longer period of time and provide the output to technical support. Please ensure that the camera time and the syslog server time are synchronized, and that the time stamping is enabled, including milliseconds. More information on the syslog server available at this link How to activate and collect Syslog from Bosch IP cameras.
Should using a separate syslog server not be possible, download the syslog debug logging from the camera web interface:
Remember to click the Reload button.
In addition to the syslog debug logging, include every time also the device maintenance logging of the cameras. The option to download the maintenance logging is located under Configuration -> Service -> Maintenance.
Note: While the collection of the maintenance logging is in progress it is important not to navigate away from the page for the file not to get corrupted.
Also include diagnostics logging on every occasion. Click the Refresh button and then Save the file.
The diagnostics logging is located under Configuration -> Service -> Diagnostics.
Provide, as well, a screenshot of the System Overview information of the devices. The menu location is Configuration -> Service -> System overview.
Provide configuration file of the devices, and the password set on the configuration files. The configuration can be downloaded under Configuration -> Service -> Maintenance.

Please provide an export of that, as well.
If you are using the Bosch Video Management System (BVMS), an excerpt from the BVMS Logbook would be useful, as well. Filter only for the specific cameras you are interested in, and only for the following events:
