From strong and steady to BAD (Last contact increasing since v0.21.1 >> Expected behavior)


As a newcomer to this community I have been trying to find a solution for my issue, however nothing have answered my question so far.

After updating my node to 0.21.1 from 0.20.1 I see that “Last Contact” happens to hit more than 2 minutes at time. Before update I was surprised if it came over 7s.

Running Windows 10, newest docker 19.03.2 with 300/300 connection.

examples of my timer.

Then for a periode of time it runs normally.

Please advice how to make it steady again as I dont want to loose reputation because of this.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

This is expected behavior. You can see more info here:


You should add --color to your dashboard command and thank me later :wink:


I did read that post but I don’t see it strictly connected to what I experience.
Another thing is that I wish there would be a much more clear answer to this.

It might be expected now that there is 2 posts about it, but I haven’t been able to read about it anywhere in the documentation or in the release notes.
So question is “Is it a bug ? and what effect does it have on my earnings”

Hi nerdatwork,

I’ll try that thanks.
The web dashboard is still missing some informations that the CLI gives

I agree web dashboard is missing many features but it’s first iteration so subsequent ones will make it awesome®.

You should try this too to fix your Last contact.

Run powershell as admin

New-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName “Storj v3” -Direction Inbound –Protocol TCP –LocalPort 28967 -Action allow

Thanks BrightSilence,

Seem like i missed that part.
Thanks for informing.
