Do I need to re-whitelist my peering node IP?#
No, you do not need to re-whitelist the IP address.
I want to have greater redundancy and would like to whitelist multiple nodes, can I do that?#
Yes, you can whitelist multiple IPs per single provider.
Can an unhealthy node cause my transactions to revert?#
Yes, at times, not enough connected peers can cause your transactions to revert. Make sure your node state is healthy and that it has enough connected peers.
How do I check the number of connected peers?#
curl http://127.0.0.1:9650/ext/health | jq
And look for the line containing
If you want to automate the process you can use:
curl -s http://127.0.0.1:9650/ext/health | \ jq -r ".checks.network.message.connectedPeers"
What is the required number of connected peers?#
If the number of peers falls below 16, chances are your node will not work correctly.
While the network is being decentralized, any number below 20 is indication of a problem.
In any case, try restarting the node.
The node does not sync after a long time and dies abruptly, what should I do?#
Make sure, that the database location has sufficient disk space (database size might change a lot during bootstrapping).
I am getting strange errors on submission and revert messages are cryptic#
This might be a symptom of a node connection error. Try to restart the node and make sure you have enough disk space.
I am getting a strange error related to
GetAcceptedFrontier during bootstrapping#
failed to send GetAcceptedFrontier(MtF8bVH241hetCQJgsKEdKyJBs8vhp1BC, 11111111111111111111111111111111LpoYY, NUMBER)
It looks like your node got disconnected during bootstrapping. Try restarting the node.
I have synced the node but it does not become healthy. What can I do?#
It often happens that a new node gets synced but stays unhealthy for no apparent reason. A restart usually helps.
