Thin client downtime

Thin client downtime

UPDATE: 2017-08-15 the server has been restored

The server hosting geth for the “thin client” mode has ran out of disk space causing Etherwall to fall behind for people using the thin client.

I have restarted the server to re-sync from scratch pruning the db to keep the size down. This means a downtime of up to one day when using the thin client.

Don’t panic if you’re using the thin client mode and see zeroes in your accounts. Until the synchronization is done on the server your account balances will be zero or may contain old data.

I’ll add a better way to inform about the server status from within Etherwall itself in the next release.

  1. What’s the current size of the blockchain? I’m trying to run my own node to help the network along but I’m at 37GB and still over 200k blocks downloading. If only I could grab a torrent of the blockchain…

  2. So the size question is a bit hard to describe. Are you running Etherwall/geth or parity?
    Do you do fast sync? A pruned (fast sync mode) fresh download of the blockchain right now is roughly 40-50GB. You should be able to download and verify it in roughly 1 day if you have a decent network connection and performant machine.
