I’m having some trouble getting a relay node I just created to process Transactions and I don’t know why.
I just set up a new Cardano Relay Node, fresh, with P2P enabled, and allowed it to sync up normally, and everything is fine.
But for some reason, it is just not processing TX’s, I enabled all of the tracing to true (TraceMempool, TraceTXInbound, TraceTxOutbound) but I still see no Tx’s being processed on gLiveView.
It synced up normally so I know it is connecting with other nodes and syncing up properly, but no matter what I have done it isn’t processing TX’s, does anyone have any idea why this could be? I created it yesterday so it’s fully updated with the latest versions of everything
I used IOHK’s installation guide and my Topology is geared towards P2P.
Can anyone try and help me out here? I have 1 incoming connection and 60 outgoing ones and my RAM is 32 GB so I know that isn’t the problem.
Are there some extra steps that must be done to enable Tx’s to come through and be processed on a P2P setting?
Here is a snapshot of my gLiveView
Here is my node topology file (with the block producer node ip omitted)
I’m trying everything I can to figure out why but nothing seems to work, does anyone have any idea why it might not be working?
Did you already check if your ports are open?
if above glive output is from your Relay then I see that you don’t have IN peers (others than your BP)
are u still using topology updater (just to announce the node presence)?
I checked if my port 6000 is open and it is, is there another port I should be checking?
Good point! And no, I was told that when using P2P you don’t use Topology Updater (nor the respective loop of it every hour)
Should I still be doing that? I believe you’ve definitely located the issue, what’s the solution for a P2P setup? And do you know where I can find the most recent version of Topology Updater if that is the case? (I have an old version of it but I need to assume it could potentially have been updated)
You must use topology updater but not all services… only push messages which are sent once/hour (if I remember well)
@Theoriginalchris1 I have this same issue, were you able to resolve it by chance? I don’t even know what the ‘topology updater’ is. What is this used for, what does it do? @Alexd1985
I did the same thing this week. Created new relay from scratch, enabling all P2P. Then realized I needed to use topology updater the old way. Then disable it and went back to P2P. Everything seemed to work well. I am concerned about my incoming. They seem to be pretty low. Anyone have any information on that? Full disclosure, i did not register this relay with my bp. Would that make a difference?
I am getting transactions, but my incoming peers are 1 to 2.
Im not seeing any duplex yet?
