Recreated storagenode now showing offline. Logs don't seem to show any errors


I’ve been running a storagenode for a few months now and needed to update the wallet address so I could make use of ZkSync. It advises to update the config.yaml file which I have done. Upon restarting the container and browsing to the GUI I noticed the wallet address hadn’t changed so I removed the container and recreated it with the recommended command which passes email, wallet address etc.

Since doing this my node has been offline, I can’t even browse to the GUI anymore, it just refuses to connect.

Checking the logs it shows two warnings but it doesn’t seem to affect it running ;

After those lines it displays numerous lines of this;

is it just syncing all the data and will it come back up shortly? If that’s the case, it would be useful to get some sort of progression message or a simple message advising this.

Hi @hello,

Breaking down your post there are few points:

  1. You say the container start command has changed and since then the GUI (dashboard) isn’t working?
    This issue points to the start command not passing/opening the correct ports for the dashboard to be accessible.

  2. Warning about QUIC - failed to sufficiently increase receive buffer size
    UDP is still in testing but you can see this post about increasing the buffer size - Linux, "failed to sufficiently increase receive buffer size"

  3. Warning “piecestore:monitor Disk space is less than requested.”
    Normally this line is followed by an ERROR to say total size is less than minimum (500GB) so I’m not sure why this would be reporting a warning unless the usage db has a problem and needs to be checked.

  4. If there are no ERROR or FATAL entries in the log then you should be fine. The INFO entries just show normal usage.

I was thinking that too but I haven’t changed any of the default ports on the command and before I made the wallet address change, it was working fine for months. Here is the command for reference:

sudo docker run -d --restart unless-stopped --stop-timeout 300
-p 28967:28967/tcp
-p 28967:28967/udp
-e WALLET=“0x************”
-e EMAIL=“"."
–mount type=bind,source="/home/pi/.local/share/storj/identity/storagenode",destination=/app/identity
–mount type=bind,source="/mnt/storj",destination=/app/config
–name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:latest

When I was reading an article (I can’t seem to find it now) I saw that they suggested putting it 50GB lower than the actual disk size which I’ve not done.

running sudo docker ps -a shows the default ports are open:
3c5086963be6 storjlabs/storagenode:latest “/entrypoint” 5 hours ago Up 6 minutes>14002/tcp,>28967/tcp,>28967/udp storagenode

24ecc61ec5cd storjlabs/watchtower “/watchtower storage…” 6 months ago Up 6 minutes watchtower

I’ve seen some people suggest I need to change this line:
server address of the api gateway and frontend app

to: console.address: and then configure port forwarding.
I’m 100% certain I had no port forwarding setup locally before hand when it was working

Here are the firewall rules to confirm that is also setup correctly:
*****@RedBroker:~ $ sudo ufw status
Status: active

To Action From

22/tcp LIMIT Anywhere
1880 ALLOW Anywhere
1883 ALLOW Anywhere
3000 ALLOW Anywhere
28967 ALLOW Anywhere

3000 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)
28967 (v6) ALLOW Anywhere (v6)

In case of docker it has no effect. See storj/entrypoint at b97479e36b6cb30998522c21a5cc9c6cd6aeeb6f · storj/storj · GitHub

The dashboard will be available only on localhost if you still have -p
To have an access from other devices use this guide: How to remote access the web dashboard - Node Operator

Thank you! Removing has worked
