STORAGENODE, a storageupdater problems on gui Windows

Helo im tired of disabling my nodes by STORJ.

I have few nodes, and from few months its constant .
I didnt bother to write about it, but its more than a year that always some node is just being turned off by itself. When i go to logs there is nothing there, just cut off in the middle of packet sending, without any message of error, nothing.

I suspect its because of new versions,
You push new versions, and it completly resets the Auto Delay settings in under Task manager>storagenode>Open Services> again find “Storj v3 Storage Node” > Properties > and here the new version ALWAYS restarts me settings under “Log On” tab, the box:
“Allow service to interact with desktop” - it should be checked, after new ver its unchecked
and most important under “General” tab:
Startu type: “Automatic (Delayed Start)” , after new version it restart to just “Automatic” and thats very very bad, internet has to get chance to load, thats why should be delayed.

Okay thats one thing, but nevertheless, new versions just stops the node, and it wont start itself, thats why i have to come and start it manually, after discovering few hours its being offline. Thats why my nodes are always around 90-95% uptime and not 100%, its angers me.

Also theres some problems with updater:

Storj V3 Storage Node Updater, this sh*t hungs too often, or cannot udate to new version and it stuck, do more testing with this a-hole.

in its logs its says it downloading new version every 15 minutes, im not sure if thats true, or is it just the writings, if it realy downloads new 50MB version of storagenode every 15min to compare if i have the newest, thats quite some bandwith over the month for You, and i dont know if anyone getting paid for this…

Sounds like a very specific to your setup.
I have Windows node too and such problems never happen to me, it just works.
But I login to UI very rarely and mostly via RDP.

@Alexey Do you also see “downloading new version” every 15 minutes? I’m not familiar with the updater code that we use with Windows, but that seems wrong.

The last time I saw this occur in a forum post the update was failing due to permissions. The previous ‘update’ to the storagenode.exe meant the file couldn’t be deleted without manual intervention. So it was indeed downloading the update every 15 minutes.

@Ruskiem - please provide a copy of the recent updater logs.

Yes, I see

However, it just downloads a new versions file, not the binary. But maybe it’s too often anyway. We have a much more longer release process than every 15 minutes.

lol so was i right? lol 1 storj reward for me pls then! from bug bounty.

Here’s the problem for example:

node 1ze1NRqX95bzZSNPBpVG5z6gwz5nnJuTRW89gFagRwgALRkZLd

just stoped in the middle of a night and i dont know why, logs says nothing.

The log is cut after line with :
2022-02-08T02:07:03.051+0100 INFO piecestore upload started {“Piece ID”: “27T7Q43LMXRWD64OBGCPGGB2IPCCH7D54SK3QD6OVUGNG4BMPC4Q”, “Satellite ID”: “12EayRS2V1kEsWESU9QMRseFhdxYxKicsiFmxrsLZHeLUtdps3S”, “Action”: “PUT”, “Available Space”: 2790581376}

mayby You can investigate what happened please?

on updater log nothing significant, “version is up to date” from few days still the same 1.47.3, Windows Gui ofc.

No, it is still doesn’t stop for me :slight_smile:
It just got update as usual without any attention from my side.

Could you please search for events in the Windows events journal on this time?
Or maybe do you have excerpts from the storagenode-updater.log on this time too?

Updates to what? storagenode?

Yes to my Windows node. Windows updates are applied too automatically.

The storagenode updates for Windows were two weeks ago… Your “It just got update”… ?

Hm, good point! I still need a practice in English :slight_smile:
I meant “it just works”, not the time it happened.
The actual update is happened 2022-01-29

i will see that windows event journal next time it happend, coz dont have time for this. And i meant the update is it true it downloads 50mb every 15 minutes just to comapre the versions

This is weird.
In my setup it downloads only json from https://version.storj.io and compares version from json with the version of the installed binaries.

How do you check that it downloads a binary?

When updater downloads a binary, it looks like this:
