Once every couple of days I’m getting this error in the block producing node
cardano.node.Forge:Error:54] [2021-03-18 15:45:33.00 UTC] fromList [(“credentials”,String “Cardano”),(“val”,Object (fromList [(“kind”,String “TraceNoLedgerView”),(“slot”,Number 2.4516042e7)]))]

Previoulsy when I had this error, I deleted the ledger directory under db and restarted. It went away for some time and then came back again today.
What causes this issue and how to prevent this from happening again?

Im not sure but according to the IOHK documentation is seems to be related to chain forks:


Leadership check failed: we were unable to get the ledger view for the current slot number
This will only happen if there are many missing blocks between the tip of our chain and the current slot.

Maybe it can lead you somewhere :slight_smile:


I am seeing the same errors on my BP node. That’s only what I am seeing, repeating entries for cardano.node.ForgeTime:info followed by cardano.node.LeadershipCheck:Info and then error cardano.node.Forge:Error.

Were you able to resolve this issue?


Reading what @Freja wrote could it be that your node has not fully synced with the network?

What do you get if you run cardano-cli query tip --mainnet
