Hello guys. I am new to stake pools so I have started with testnet to get the feeling.

I am using gLiveView but something seems odd.

Could someone please take a look at the below screenshots and advise if I have configured something wrong?

Thank you very much in advance.


I couldn’t upload more than 1 photo because I am new to this group.

Please be advised that I have created the stake pool 5 days now. It showed syncing completed but now again it shows syncing and it stayed like that 2 days now.

Logs look good though.

It seems the BP can’t connect to the IOHK nodes

Dear Alex,thanks for your message.
Please take a look in my testnet-topology.json

Is this causing the issue?


Try to add more testnet relays from here, save the file and restart the node

I have added more, now gLiveView is not starting at all and logs are as below.

type top
do you see the CPU ~ 100%? if yes, then have patience, the node will start

Unfortunately nothing yet. Now gLiveView is not connecting at all.


journalctl -e -f -u cardano-node

Same as before.

and if u press top
do you see the CPU ~100% for cardano-node process?

If i press top it doesnt show anything.

not here, close this window by pressing Ctrl+C and then type top

Sorry about that.
I have checked with mpstat the cpu is not 100%


ok, can u show me the topology file?


ok, do not add dns relays, add only IP,

delete all and add this one:

  "Producers": [
      "addr": "",
      "port": 6000,
      "valency": 1
      "addr": "",
      "port": 6005,
      "valency": 1
      "addr": "",
      "port": 3001,
      "valency": 1
      "addr": "",
      "port": 6600,
      "valency": 1

and of course restart the node

Dear Alex, Now once again we are at the starting issue. gLiveView is syncing but stacked at the same percentage. Logs look good.


sould be fine, have patience now, let the node to sync…

Okay I will give it time. Also i do not if it matters, when i start gLiveView i get this notification and I always press no and gLiveView starts normally.
