E258 Slottery results coming soon & stats a wee while after that.

I've got some personal stuff to deal with at the moment so will be keeping a low profile around here for a wee while.

The Pools are all receiving their usual dose of diligence & TLC and the Minting Presses will continue to run FSA.

If y'all are happy to welcome in any new arrivals that'd be awesome.

πŸ“’ Tech Announcement - cardano-node Update - 8 Apr 21 πŸ“’

Last night all your pool nodes were updated to cardano-node 1.26.1.

This update has been patiently anticipated by SPO's for a few weeks now as it resolves the '48 Hour Reward Calc' network grind issue.

Prior to 1.26.1, rewards calculation for the previous epoch would start at the 48 hour mark of each epoch. This calculation would cause a huge 'grind' on the network for the duration of the calculation. If a pool had a slot allocated at the time of the calculation it was likely that the minted block would not propagate correctly across the network, resulting in the block not being chained and therefore no reward for minting the block!

In 1.26.1 the calculation is now staggered across a wider time period rather than all at once at the 48 hour mark. This morning's Reward Calc was seamless and caused no deleterious effect on your pool nodes. In fact, CPU and Memory resource usage has significantly dropped since this update πŸ₯³. So a huge shoutout to the IOG devs for solving this for us all!

There is still a known issue with Epoch Transition network grind and, although previous testing has suggested this issue is not yet resolved, I'm hopeful that with enough nodes in the network updated to 1.26.1 we will see significant improvement.

πŸ“’ Tech Announcement - cardano-node Update - 19 Apr 21 πŸ“’

Last night all your pool nodes were updated to cardano-node 1.26.2.

The last epoch transition was, quite frankly, brutal and the network ground to a halt for 20 minutes or more whilst we all transitioned from E259 into E260.

[Stakepool Operators were gossiping amongst themselves for the entire long and painful epoch transition. It was worse than a bad book review at a Monthly Book Club! πŸ˜‰]

The good thing is that we are all invested in a rockstar #Cryptocurrency in Cardano! The IOG Dev Team got straight on it. Meanwhile the IOG Comms was excellent keeping us up-to-date with no less than four eloquent and concise technical updates in the days following the transition culminating in the release of cardano-node 1.26.2 πŸ’ͺ.

We're still anticipating Epoch Transition issues as these haven't yet been fully resolved. However, we should be in much better shape than the last disastrous transition!

Matticus πŸ€“

ps. The swiftness of the investigation, resolution and communications from IOG were so awesome that I must share them here (see below). Really a great moment seeing such awesome comms! πŸ“’

Earlier today, you will likely have noticed a pause in block production of c.25m mins after the recent epoch boundary.

Some spike in CPU usage and network pause is to be expected, and this delay was well within modeled bounds. However, this pause was significantly longer than usual.

The network is functioning normally. However, over the next 24 hours, our engineers will profile the performance of the node to determine the cause, along with additional testing so we can mitigate and optimize as needed.

We’ll be sure to share our findings with you once we have determined next steps.

QUICK UPDATE: Last night we reported on the unexpectedly long pause at the epoch boundary.

After investigation today, the node team has now identified the likely root cause. This was due to the node repeating a computation that should have been done just once at the epoch boundary, due to the way the leaders slots are computed in the consensus rules.

We’ve seen positive results from initial tests on the node, and the team has now determined an update that should alleviate the issue at the next epoch boundary.

We’re continuing to test and will next move the update into QA for final testing. We’ll bring you a further update as soon as we have determined a timeframe for release. Thanks for your cooperation.

UPDATE: On Thursday, we reported on the unexpectedly long pause at the epoch boundary.

After further investigation, we concluded this was due to the node repeating a computation that should have been done just once at the epoch boundary. 

Yesterday, our engineers identified a fix to alleviate the issue. We’ve been doing extensive testing and QA today, and subject to final checks, we will be finalizing a point release (1.26.2) which we aim to release later today.

We’ll alert you as soon as this is available.

This will ensure that block producing nodes do not unnecessarily re-evaluate the stake distribution at the epoch boundary. We’ll also continue to optimize this through future releases.

We are asking that once the release is available, all stake pool operators install this update prior to the next epoch boundary, which take place on Tuesday 20th at 21:44:51 UTC. 

Thanks very much for your support.

NEW RELEASE COMING SOON: We have now fully QAd and tagged release 1.26.2 and will soon push it to our own pools before releasing it publicly. Please expect to see this new release drop within the next few hours.
Forwarded from πŸ₯ IO SPO announcements (Tim Harrison (IOHK Comms))
PLEASE UPDATE YOUR NODES: Last night, after completing QA testing, we successfully released a new node version (1.26.2).

This will address the block production issues we encountered earlier this week, by ensuring that block producing nodes do not unnecessarily re-evaluate the stake distribution at the epoch boundary. We’ll also continue to optimize this through future releases.

We are asking all stake pool operators install this update prior to the next epoch boundary, which takes place on Tuesday 20th at 21:44:51 UTC. 

Full release notes can be accessed here: https://github.com/input-output-hk/cardano-node/releases/tag/1.26.2

Please note: This point release is a recommended upgrade for all stake pool operators. It is not required for relays or other passive nodes, but feel free to update these too if you wish.

Thanks very much for your support and patience during this process, and see you all in the next epoch.
