Tip(diff), changed the parameter TraceMempool

Hello other pool operators!

I have a question regarding the Tip(diff), on the relay node it is kind off lagging behind I guess. BP node is almost 24/7 in green, but relay is going down even to a point that the tip (diff) switches to: status: “syncing (100.0%)”

Now I have read something about changing the parameter: TraceMempool to false.

In guild liveview the relay node stopped viewing processed TX and mempool TX/bytes.
But at the BP node, both are working and updating.

This seems the solution for now, but what did I actually changed? And does it affect something else?
Can someone explain this to me?

All these will be fixed in next node release.



Thank you Alex,

What do you recommend for now? Are you also having the same problem?


I have this issue only with my relay for tests which has 8g; the nodes with 16 and 32g I haven’t

Set traceMempool to false and wait for the next release

You need to open mainnet-config.json, for example with a texteditor is a possibility.
Then search for the parameter TraceMempool, and set it to false (by default it is True).

Had this issue as well, CPU was running at 50%, disabled TraceMempool, reboot and back down to 3% and looking much healthier.

It doesn’t look great not seeing TXs on the relay but the BP is increasing nicely so I guess that is what matters.

Thank you to the community for the help as always.

Hello Alex:
This is not regarding tracemempool, I am having and issue with BP, I guess it is an issue, certainly it does not feel like a normal behavior, but every time there is and epoch change, the gLview disconnects from the node and I need to restart gLview, any toughs?

Did u check if also the node is restarting?


no, it is not, the uptime remains, and the tip diff goes over 100

Then should be the epoch transition…

What should I do, issue has been closed, is it still pending a fix?

It will be fixed in 1.26.1 release
