Wallet slow to sync


  • newbies | Tip 5v3nla

    Hi,

    the link to https://ufile.io/8ysgb is not longer valid (unless you subscribe to their premium contract). Can someone republish it please?

    I’m on 0.9.6.2, but sync is still only half way through (block 1023813) after 24hrs…

    You are past any problems in the sync. Even if you download blockdat, it still has to be checked by the system, which is the thing that takes time.

    It’s been running for a week now… block 1770805… this is ridiculuous…

    I have dozens of wallets in other altcoins… none of them took longer than a day.


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    Are you ate your PC now, is the wallet open? can you click on, settings, debug window, console tab,

    then type

    getinfo
    

    then :

    getpeerinfo 
    

    May help diagnose why you are slow.

    I posted earlier in this thread. one of the main reasons why the sync is so slow is that Feathercoin was attacked a lot in the early days in 2013/2014 that caused a few orphan chains on the network that have to be processed.

    Your wallet currently -or at the time you got the list of peers- syncronizes with this node : “46.127.12.33:9336”

    Try to close the wallet and start again.

    This has been reported to get hanging synchronizations to move again.

    After starting the wallet again, you can check that the wallet uses a different node to download data.

    This is reflected in the ‘syncnode’ flag of the peers.

    @wellenreiter
    Thanks for the info , i closed and opened it many times and it still hangs there , on information tab i number of connections see 10 ( in = 0 / out = 10 )

    When i restart , i always get a different address showing True but it stays hanging .

    What do i do now ?


  • Regular Member | Tip Phlosen

    Hi @engetsu,

    I had the same issue on Ubuntu and Win. I went here http://cryptochainer.com/dir/?page_id=881
    and downloaded the .zip
    Close your wallet, copy the files into the Data Folder (maybe backup the old ones, just in case…). Start your Wallet and you should only be come days behind. Wallet quickly syncs and you are good…

    Hope this helps!!

    @phlosen

    thanks for the link but the idea of me getting the core is to havea safe wallet . Downloading something from a site for my wallet does not really seem secure .

    Also why can’t this core wallet work like it’s suppose to ? why so many bugs and so much time to sync.

    i deleted everything and re installed the program and it’s been 3 days now on continuous connection on a 30 MB internet speed .

    I’m at 1 year and 17 weeks behind , is it suppose to take this much time ?


  • Regular Member | Tip gonnaforget

    @engetsu I thought the thing that took time is not the download, but the processing.


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    @engetsu

    My tests showed the sync with 0.9.6.2 took consistently ~25 hours, using the blockdata.dat - a fast PC with > 16 GB RAM.

    Can I ask what PC you are using? memory / clock speed?


  • Regular Member | Tip engetsu

    @wrapper

    im doing it from my laptop , i3 with 8gig of ram , ssd .

    So woke up today and i think it finished syncing , fire up feathercoin app and now i get an error message saying "connect a new block to chainactive , failed to read block " .and then shutsdown

    Tha hell is wrong with this wallet why is it only problems , what are the devs going to do if it ever becomes mainstream and everyone wants to buy themselves some FTC .

    i uninstalled and re installed but i still get the message . Do i have to delete everything again and download restart the whole process again ?


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    @engetsu - I deleted the swearing as this is a highjack of someone else welcome thread.

    You can try : Start the client with the -reindex command-line option.

    Otherwise yes, the bitcoin programmers have included error checking in the code that you sometimes have to do something about , sorry.

  • Moderators | Tip AcidD

    @engetsu - I appreciate your frustration. We are working to sort out all of these sync issues in our next release.

    if you’re on windows…

    • make a shortcut to feathercoin-qt on your desktop
    • right click and click properties
    • add the following to the end of the Target path

    "C:\Program Files\Feathercoin\feathercoin-qt.exe" -maxorphantx=5000 -maxblockorphans=12000 -dbcache=4096 -rescan

    let us know how you get on.


  • Regular Member | Tip Anema

    For your information guys this command line doesnt work

    “C:\Program Files\Feathercoin\feathercoin-qt.exe” -maxorphantx=5000 -maxblockorphans=12000 -dbcache=4096 -rescan


  • Moderators | Tip AcidD

    Could you please go into more detail?

    “Doesn’t work” makes it hard for us to provide support.


  • newbies | Tip Michu

    I have been downloading the Feathercoin blockchain for 2 weeks, I have 1 year and 27 weeks left. I have a very good connection. It’s sloooow.
