1st time audit error but file exists

Good day everyone, I have had a node working since Dec 2020 and today for the fist time I noticed by Audit Score went down from 100%. I check the log files and found it was caused by a failed download of


I quickly went to check the health of the hard drive but it seemed fine. No IO errors. I also check if the file exists and it does, it is a 1.5K file.

root@miner: ls -lh | grep ‘y7q’
-rw------- 1 root root 1.5K Dec 7 2021 y7qpn7oyi4nrkavshyr4426ut3uglbqph4tjye3xnfirhn4nuq.sj1

The log file contains

cat /mnt/node2/node.log | grep ‘Y7QPN’

means there was a problem with connection, not file system. Your Internet connection probably just had a small hiccup at the time of the audit. This should not matter, as audits are repeated a few times exactly because of this kind of transient problems.

So, don’t worry and keep operating your node as usual. If this problem happens often, it’s a sign that something might be wrong with your connection. A single occurence though is nothing scary though.


thank you for the info, good to know nothing serious.
