Abnormal Mempool Spikes

Hi guys, I’ve recently noticed some odd mempool spikes on my nodes. Any idea what could be causing them? What should I be looking for in my logs, and why do the mempool bytes seem to cap at 125kb? This behaviour is shown by all my nodes but the pool is minting blocks and processing transactions as expected. My nodes also have ~16gb of Ram.
Appreciate any help, Thanks.


the volume of transactions on blockchain increased and that’s a good sign :wink:

it looks like is limited by the protocol

AFAIK the current blocksize is 64k. Guess: The node seems to stop to accept of new transactions at twice the maximum block size…?
