Dear Cardano Community,
My BP is currently missing slots at an average rate of 2.5 slots per hour since I upgraded to 1.27.0.
I already went through several threads on the Cardano forum but I couldn’t find any conclusive solution to this issue. As suggested in many related topics, I moved my BP from a VPS to a bare metal server and increased the RAM of the hardware from 8GB to 16GB. However, I’m still missing slots at a similar rate like before.
My current setup is:
BP → dedicated server at home: 4 cores, 16GB RAM, 15GB swap and 256GB SSD (Zurich, Switzerland)
Relay 1 → dedicated server at home: 4 cores, 8GB RAM, 7GB swap and 256GB SSD (Zurich, Switzerland)
Relay 2 (Backup) → VPS on data center: 4 cores, 8GB RAM, 7GB swap and 80GB SSD (Western Germany)
Internet connection: 1GB up/down
If I run the command
I journalctl -e -f -u cnode.service on my BP and relays, I don’t see any issues related to insufficient CPU like cnode.service being terminated with signal SIGKILL, for instance.
I’m a SPO and my pool is extremely small (85k live stake). So I want to lower the chances of missing any of the few blocks that will be assigned to my pool as much as I can.
Is this a known issue? Am I missing something in my setup? Do I need to change any ENV parameters to improve my BP’s performance?
Many thanks in advance for the help!
