No blocks generated in last two epochs

The CENTUO Pool (ticker CENTU) has not generated any block in the last two epochs. I have attached the screenshot of status of the producer node. Is this normal with nearly 800k ADA in stake? Am I doing anything wrong in the pool configuration? I can see that the missed slot leader checks are minimal and acceptable, any suggestion what might be happening? Thank you ).


I’ve seen 4 consecutive epochs without blocks with more than 1M delegation, that’s very possible to happen in your case.
You should check if you have slots assigned to mint blocks every epoch, to be 100% sure it is just bad luck and not a real problem.


i have 700-800 K for SKULL pool you can see ive gone 3 epochs regularly with no block Rewards Pool [SKULL] | Cardano Explorer

It’s all just luck (or lack of) of the draw.

I had a similar problem and it turned out that the pool actually forged blocks but they were invalid because the opcert counter was wrong. See here for more info.

Do you find any useful information when you scan for “Forge:Error” in the log?

Thank you, I can see this might be normal provided I do not have more than a million ADA in stake.

Thank you @georgem1976, this might be the reason, I might have bad luck in the last two epochs. Hopefully it might be better in the following ones.

It is not my case, I checked the counter and it is ok. Thank you.

Look into installing CNCLI so you can check for assigned leader slots.

Hi @Centuo

If you may be interested in considering the issue that you are describing from a governance perspective (see Voltaire era), then please review a draft Cardano Improvement Proposal (CIP) that I am currently authoring titled I Gave at the Office Feel free to get involved and express any thoughts about the CIP idea in the comments at Cardano Governance #376 as well.

The idea for I Gave at the Office emerged from another pool, GNP1, describing a very similar experience to what you are describing 20 Epochs without a block averaging around 300,000 in stake

For a complete list of the discussions foundational to the CIP idea, see the Rationale section at the end of the CIP draft.



Got extremely bad luck from our pool, maybe that will make you feel better
