Pieces error: marshaled piece header too big!

I’m seeing new error that I couldn’t find within the forum. What is marshaled piece header too big! ?
on v1.18.1

readwrite.go shows this comment and sounds like it did happen for me.

	if len(headerBytes) > (V1PieceHeaderReservedArea - v1PieceHeaderFramingSize) {
		// This should never happen under normal circumstances, and it might deserve a panic(),
		// but I'm not *entirely* sure this case can't be triggered by a malicious uplink. Are
		// google.protobuf.Timestamp fields variable-width?
		return Error.New("marshaled piece header too big!")

v1.18.1 - docker - linux

Yes, I have this as well - didn’t report as though was me broken something again :slight_smile: - started on 6th Jan @21-00hrs for my first one, and had 31 so far.

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention.
The problem appears to be that piece headers store complete order limits, and some changes were made to order limits recently which has increased their size, causing them to sometimes go over the piece header size limit.
We have people working on this right now.
Until then, using a bucket with a shorter name may possibly help.


@cameron thanks for confirming :slight_smile: will stop worrying now


We had a point release today.
I believe the issue should be resolved.
Thanks again!


Thanks, That is a respectable fast response!
I also take it as no action needed for SNO. :slight_smile:
