Cardano recovers from outages at 50% relay and block generating nodes.

Cardano has been Stake Pool Operators (SPO) and users. Reporting At least half of the nodes for the network went offline briefly over the weekend.

As of January 22nd Post Shared on Telegram SPO for Input Output Global, the engineering and research in fintech behind the Cardano blockchain, an anomaly caused 50% of Cardano nodes to disconnect and restart.

“It appears to have been triggered by a temporary anomaly that caused two reactions in a node, some to disconnect from a peer, others to throw an exception and restart,” The post read explaining the sudden interruption.

Despite a momentary outage, the Cardano network recovered without outside interference. As explained in the post, “such transient issues” were considered in the node design and consensus and “the system behaved as expected.”

During the anomaly, which occurred between blocks 8300569 and 8300570, the block reportedly continued to produce but slowed down for a few minutes and had “less impact, due to delays during normal operations.” was synonymous.”

“Most nodes heal automatically, depending on the SPO of choice.”

At the time of writing, the root cause of the anomaly and the resulting node disconnection and restart is still under investigation.

“We are now investigating the root cause of this unusual behavior and implementing further logging measures alongside our regular monitoring procedures,” the official announcement said.

Tom Stokes, co-founder of NodeShark and a Cardano SPO, reported in a post on January 22 that more than half of the listed nodes were affected.

He also shared a chart showing where network synchronization has dropped from 100% to just above 40% for more than 300 reporting nodes.

According to the Stokes chart, the network’s synchronization recovered to about 87% after the collapse but did not immediately return to its previous level of 100%.

Another SPO Reported A Jan. 22 post similar issues to Stoke, but declared that “some SPOs saw no impact.”

“Others have relays and BP restarts. SPOs, Devs, and IOG are in Discord debugging atm. No root cause yet,” he said.
