Following an outage on Friday night brought on by a misconfigured node that prevented the blockchain from completing transactions, Solana is back online.
A validator looked to be running two instances of the validator, resulting in two blocks being produced by the validator as opposed to only one.
“Not an issue in itself and something the network should handle,” said software and blockchain company Stakewiz, which operates a validator node on Solana, in a Twitter thread.
Because validators couldn’t agree on which version was accurate, the blockchain forked as a result. Validators were unable to return to the main fork as a result of this fork’s convoluted code path. Stakewiz hypothesized that the Solana network’s inability to resolve the issue may be related to a flawed node failover setup.
The choice was taken to restart the network at the most recent confirmed time slot, 153139220. Upon completion, the restart took place at 7 UTC. Services are being restored by dapps.
Solana bills itself as a high-performance blockchain
It has experienced numerous outages over the past year. It fell unavailable for almost 18 hours in September 2021.
It also experienced a seven-hour period of freezing in the beginning of May before validators began, as well as a four-hour outage in June. Performance on the network declined in January, March, April, and May.
