When will Stefan Benten satellite be removed?

Lol, would @peem be one of the “lucky” ones who has their mother tongue that has this incredible feature of putting a gender on objects? :smiley:

It’s true that logs get a lot of errors, but right now (in my case) we’re talking about a few hundreds of MB per month, so it’s not really a big deal as long as logrotate is configured to get rid of older logs… And for those using the default logging system (via docker), they get deleted quite regularly when nodes get updated anyway.

So it’s not a huge problem IMHO ^^


I am planning on removing the ID tomorrow from the list. The majority of nodes should have updated by then (cadence time for docker nodes to update to v1.14.7).
If afterwards node operators start to complain about an non functional dashboard, then we (and by this i mean everyone active in this forum) first need to help them update :slight_smile:

When the ID is removed from the trusted-satellites list, the error is gone!


i can report that the stefanbenten satellite has vanished from my dashboard, nor is it any longer present in the logs… and everything seems to work fine …

didn’t need to update anything… but i was at 1.14.7


I can confirm, we removed the satellite from the list a little earlier today, as the majority is updated as mentioned above. :muscle:


It’s disappeared from the payout history too


I just noticed a minor thing. Whenever I refresh the dashboard in the browser I see this line in the logs.

2020-10-16T13:36:48.438Z WARN console:service unable to get Satellite URL {“Satellite ID”: “118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW”, “error”: “storage node dashboard service error: trust: satellite “118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW” is untrusted”, “errorVerbose”: “storage node dashboard service error: trust: satellite “118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW” is untrusted\n\tstorj.io/storj/storagenode/trust.(*Pool).getInfo:228\n\tstorj.io/storj/storagenode/trust.(*Pool).GetNodeURL:167\n\tstorj.io/storj/storagenode/console.(*Service).GetDashboardData:160\n\tstorj.io/storj/storagenode/console/consoleapi.(*StorageNode).StorageNode:44\n\tnet/http.HandlerFunc.ServeHTTP:2042\n\tgithub.com/gorilla/mux.(*Router).ServeHTTP:210\n\tnet/http.serverHandler.ServeHTTP:2843\n\tnet/http.(*conn).serve:1925”}

Looks like something is still looking for the satellite. Not a big deal of course, but I figured I’d mention it.

Thats how we fixed the intermediate error for now. We are still looking for a good solution how to show untrusted satellites going forward.
This will be especially important for community satellites in the future :slight_smile:


just caught that one scrolling over my color logs, red lines on a small screen, fullscreen and freeze frame
xD so going to expand on this monitoring concept

seems like the same warning, so i won’t post it… was a bit disappointed i wasn’t first…

I just noted. But I don’t think it’s wise to handle it this way.

Now even older payout history has no more data from that satellite. i can’t check if the held amount was paid. I cannot even verify any payment.

I think a satellite should not disappear completely like this. Any previous payments/transactions should remain traceable. Or maybe I missed a way to check?


You still can check your history, but only with a Earnings Calculator:

It’s disappeared only from the dashboard.
I hope this would be fixed.

well it is the first satellite being removed from the network, i guess it’s to be expected that there will be a few loose connections here and there…

on the other hand considering how much whine and wasted time it missing from the payout history is going to cause, getting it fixed might be a efficient idea.

It is definitely not the first.

so first one in V3 which after all it was a complete rebuild… i duno about the first versions was only there briefly for v2 and not very engaged.

Again not first in V3. It was a satellite run by SNO that operates a website which aggregates all node information. It was removed quite early in V3.

V1 & V2 didn’t have the concept of satellite.

must have missed that then, think i joined up again when the public v3 beta or whatever was announced back in February or something like that… can’t remember having seen any other satellites… but most likely just me just having joined back then or that it was a little bit earlier

my bad, so the 2nd one… i’m sure they will get the hang of it eventually, will just take a few tries…

This is not correct. That mentioned satellite was never trusted and it was only able to get information via the kademlia network.
My satellite is the first satellite,that was officially trusted by all nodes in the network, that got removed.

Pretty sure those are just uplinks run by Stefan for testing purposes. Note that it doesn’t mention the actual satellite subdomain, but rather other subdomains.

fair enough. I got excited for a minute.

Can confirm, these are just regular servers that i am using for storing stuff in our network :slight_smile:
