Steps for 1.26.1 (non CNTOOLS , Coincashew users)


It can take up to 1h until the DB is re-syncing. So it is normal that glive Status is on “starting”.


I like the copy db/ledger to the other nodes, especially that in most cases, there are 2 relays and 1 BP .

i didn’t upgrade ghc and cabal. is it recommended with 1.26.1 ?

No It’s not.

Hello guys, I updated to 1.26.1 and already sync all to relays and BP node.
I followed the coincashew guide.
But what I noticed in my Grafana dashboard is that Code Tx’s Processed is not received any more.
I also updated:

  • ghc to 8.10.4
  • cabal to

Is it a problem that I am still not receiving Code Tx’s Processed. And how to verify that my pool is running properly and can it produce blocks?

Here is a screenshots of my pool’s BP node and Grafana dashboard:

Thanks for the great guide. For some reason, copying the compiled files to the right location doesn’t seem to work for me. I can see that both files in /usr/local/bin are updated. However, when I verify the version of the node it still returns 1.25.1.

Am I overlooking something? is there a method to check the location where the node is running from?

EDIT: I used command which cardano-cli to check the location of cardano-node and cardano-cli. Both ran from a different location. Fixed the issue by altering the cp command listed above.


How did you alter the command this is what I was trying to fix as well.

Had this exact same issue…

You need to change your PATH in .bashrc.

PATH works like PATH=first_look_here:then_look_here:and_so_on

If you punt the /usr/local/bin: in front it will look for the cardano-node in that location.

Change bash-file by sudo nano $HOME/.bashrc

Save with ctrl+o then ctrl+x

don’t forget to source ~/.bashrc and your good

@Alexd1985 Can you look and tell at my problem, looks like you have pretty good understanding of Cardano pools at all :slight_smile:

hmm try to see if the node is exporting the metric

curl localhost:12798/metrics | grep TX

compare with the output from another node

I am trying to update my pool.cert after i changed my public IP to a DNS record, but i am not able to complete the steps with 1.26.1 .
This command is failing with error saying when decoding the params.json , key “DECENTRALIZATION” not found.

(note that after i upgraded to 1.26.1 - all my nodes were online and connected as expected)

fee=(cardano-cli transaction calculate-min-fee \ --tx-body-file tx.tmp \ --tx-in-count {txcnt}
–tx-out-count 1
–witness-count 3
–byron-witness-count 0
–protocol-params-file params.json | awk ‘{ print $1 }’)
echo fee: $fee

Yeap, you are right. BP node don’t export cardano_node_metrics_txsProcessedNum_int. Any advice how to fix that?

Howbis the config file?

Did u set to true traceMempool?

I shared all info, little bit up in this topic… Steps for 1.26.1 (non CNTOOLS , Coincashew users) - #47 by toome123

traceMempool is set to true

Try to compare the config file from producer with one of your relay… I think something is different

There is no difference… But the files are old from 1.25.1. It is necessary to fetch new files for this build ?

I don’t think so… did u tried to restart the node?

Yes, many times, also prometheus.service. but nothing…
First i rebuild 1.26.1 by my self with old versions of ghc and cabal. And everything works fine, after that i saw coincashew guide and their suggest to update ghc to 8.10.4 and cabal to and did it again. And then i noticed this problem… i dont know if this info is helpful but…

Check for ur all nodes

ghc - -version
cabal - -version

Are same for all nodes?
