Please excuse the noob-ic question:

My block producer node shows 0 Total Tx and 0 Pending Tx on gLiveView:

Core Node

However, my two relay nodes have non-zero total and pending tx values, and seem to only be going up. Here is a screenshot of one:

Relay Node

The BP is connected to the two relays, and the two relays are connected to each other as well as other relays. Is this going to be a problem for block production or is this expected/normal?

Thanks in advance!!

Possible solutions:

First: In your mainnet-config.json file, set "TraceMemPool": true

Then restart the node.

Block Producer mainnet-config.json

Second: Another issue is that there are no peers in. You need to add your block producer to the topology of the relay node(s).

Incoming/Outgoing Peer Topology

Update: OP mentioned the issue being with the UFW configuration. For reference, here is an image of how I have my UFW setup on my stake pool. This is 4 Relay nodes, 1 Block Producer node and 1 Stand-By Block Producer node setup.

  • Thank you so much for the quick reply! it made me realize this whole time I was just being a dingus and my UFW rules were a wee bit off. Just fixed it and it works fine.
