Block producer always at least one block behind the relays

Looking at gLiveView, I see that my block producer node is always at least one block behind the relays. It is never the same. As such, the tip and slots seen for the block producer are also behind.

Has anyone run into this before? On it results in the “All Propagation Delays Receiver” metric exceeding 5000ms.

The pool name[ticker] is Radiant[RAD]

Not ok, what is the rtt for the relays? Press P in glive

Also, do u use chrony?

Here are the IN and OUT RTTS on the BP:

I don’t use chrony as I ran into some issues (with my security setup I think):

Setting up chrony (3.5-6ubuntu6.2) ...

Creating '_chrony' system user/group for the chronyd daemon…

useradd: cannot open /etc/passwd

adduser: `/sbin/useradd -d /var/lib/chrony -g _chrony -s /usr/sbin/nologin -u 107 _chrony' returned error code 1. Exiting.

I’ll revisit installing chrony and see if it helps. Thank you for the insight.

Your instinct was exactly right. After Installing chrony the BP now stays synced with the relays as unexpected.

Thank you again.
