Latest client release will not completely sync
« on: May 11, 2015, 04:48:19 PM »

I am running mac os 10.10.3  I had to reinstall the bitshares client.  After opening the latest version 0.9.1 it took about an hour to make it to 68% sync.  The client cycles between no connection and limited connection to the network.  When it switches between being connected and not connected the 68% flashes to 100% for a fraction of a second.  What should I do?

wait until it catches up .. you may also delete the "peers_leveldb" folder in
~/Library/Application Support/BitShares
so that the client polls the seed nodes for new network nodes to download the chain from.

more advanced users may also try to download the chain from a chainserver

The release 0.9.1 will also not sync for me on mac os x 10.9.4, it's stuck at block 1902795
I also enabled download from a chainserver too, and also reset the blockchain twice already, always stuck at about 75%

It says it has 10 network connections.

how long are you waiting? This is odd :(

do you get any other useful information from the CLI?

The cli is actually not even responding once it's stuck, I type get_info but I get no return. It looks like the server component has crashed. Very weird.

Need assistance :)

Ah .. ok .. I guess you can see heavy hard drive activity .. don't you?
The syncing progress is a computational expensive task that produces plenty of disk operations .. so you may just need more patients.
The CLI actually is the server component and when it is heavily syincing it may not respond to your commands quickly. Once the client is synced, you should restart it so that residual syncing data in the memory is wiped.

I left it running over night and it had no hard disk activity in the morning, but it was still stuck at about 73%

and you are still having connections?

could you run "about" and "info" and paste the results here?

I deleted the entire blockchain and let it resync from scratch. Stuck at block 1990812 for about an hour now. I tried restarting too, still stuck.

It's doing SOMETHING since the cpu usage is 100-180%, but there's no hdd or network traffic to be seen.

Seems ok to me. You are definitely on the right fork. Try this to connect to other nodes directly:
Code: [Select]
network_add_node "107.170.211.129:1700" add
network_add_node "80.240.133.79:1776" add
network_add_node "188.226.195.137:60696" add
network_add_node "76.74.170.79:54200" add
network_add_node "176.9.234.166:1700" add
network_add_node "180.153.142.120:1777" add
network_add_node "162.243.220.142:1777" add
network_add_node "84.238.140.192:42577" add
network_add_node "5.101.106.138:1778" add
network_add_node "69.164.192.144:1700" add
network_add_node "192.168.0.14:1776" add
network_add_node "78.46.32.25:1776" add
network_add_node "192.168.0.12:44327" add
network_add_node "70.114.143.108:1776" add
network_add_node "106.187.91.24:38581" add
network_add_node "106.185.26.162:1981" add
network_add_node "188.138.107.159:1776" add
network_add_node "104.131.136.190:1776" add
network_add_node "95.85.33.16:8764" add
network_add_node "198.199.103.79:1776" add
network_add_node "104.131.234.136:8801" add

Maybe you are just connected to too many old nodes that have not been upgraded and have been disconnected from the rest of the network ..

that is a good sign .. if you run "getinfo" again, did "blockchain_head_block_num" increase?

Negative. I added the nodes in the console.

Still stuck at the very same block. I had 0.4-0.6 running just fine on this machine, this is very strange.

Had another idea... could you please remove the checkpoints.json from the BitShares data directory in %APPDATA% and restart the client?

At least, its my network monitor is showing that its downloading data now.. but info shows that no block is being added.

Even after a restart, the block count did not changed.

I'll let it run for an hour and let you know

Thanks
