8.0.0 nodes won't start

I upgraded my nodes to 8.0.0 two weeks ago. The nodes ran fine for a week and half with no issues. The only trouble I had was that the nodes took hours to start, due to the 8.0.0 replay.

My nodes started having connection issues a few days ago. Online/Offline.
I rebooted all the nodes yesterday, but now my relays and BPs will not start. They remain in the “starting” status. It’s been that way for over 24 hours.

must be related with db…

check this WA

sudo systemctl restart cnode
sudo journalctl -e -f -u cnode
and check for errors. If everything is fine (no errors)

sometimes, when you stop/start/restart the node often you will hit this issue and you will need to perform the steps

  • stop the node
sudo systemctl stop cnode
  • rename ledger, immutable and volatile folders
ls -l
mv immutable imm
mv ledger led
mv volatile vol
ls -l
  • start/stop the node
sudo systemctl start cnode
stop the node after 10 sec
sudo systemctl stop cnode
  • you should also see now the new folders ledger, immutable and volatile
    delete the new folders created (not the old one renamed)
ls -l
rm -R ledger
rm -R immutable
rm -R volatile
ls -l
  • rename back the original folders
mv imm immutable
mv led ledger
mv vol volatile
ls -l
  • start the node and check glive (you should see now Mem RSS slowly increasing)

if still not working try on relay to delete the db then download it again from

Thank you.
I figured it out, I was running low on hard drive space. It was all the previous node repositories.
