    Nothing has changed . It stuck like this … It has been 1 week now 🙂 It is working 24/7 also i can share the debuglog file if you want

    and to be honest I check those hash numbers by one by not all of them I dont know why it says Orphan

    Hi @Anema

    this is the expected behaviour. You just need to leave your machine on and set it to not go onto standby or sleep mode.

    Leaving it on for 1 week 24/7 - and you can guarantee it’s been online that whole time… then something else might be wrong with your setup.

    The orphan blocks are blocks that have to be processed - in the past Feathercoin had attacks on it’s blockchain and this caused orphan chains to happen.

    I think from now on the best thing to do just leave the computer open . About my setting I have no idea I just downloaded the setup and then Install it . I dont think I have a problem with my firewall or anything else. Ty for the info btw

    I did a try from fresh, for the sake of benchmarking and potential useful info.
    So far, 36 weeks behind @2days 19hours, will report in upon completion.

    Whats the spec / memory CPU speed of the PC?


  • | Tip Moonman

    @wrapper
    will do a complete spec and times post when its complete, but its an hp tm2 touch laptop with core2duo cpu ~1.5sth ghz, 8gb ram (ddr3 800 if i remember well)

    I really dont think this is about Computer speed


  • newbies | Tip MRCRPTO

    DOES ANYONE HAVE A BOOTSTRAP LINK WHICH IS FREE TO DOWNLOAD?

    Hi, can you lay out all you research and evidence for your conclusion?

    Could do with a recent one being created.

    Ok, reporting in.
    Tested fresh download, install and sync.
    The sync ended last night (i was sleeping at the time), time now is +4d10h, so the sync stopped at about ~ +4d5h

    The sync was done on an HP TM2-2190,
    gpu is Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD (it has a switchable ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550 gpu but i wanted it to run cooler if it was about to stay on for a long time).
    Energy cpu profile was min5% max 100%.
    Resource monitoring showed an average cpu usage of
    core1: ~20% and core2: ~70%

    Internet connection is an ADSL2+ synced at 19mbps down/1mpbs up
    Internet interruption occured once a day - based on my router scheduling
    Internet outages - only Isp and God knows, forgot not to auto flush router log, sorry

    It is the CPU that matters, HP TM2-2190 is quite a “slow” (1.2GHz) notebook laptop. The 50% average CPU usage shows why it took 4 1/2 days…

    so my computer is like this

    i7 7700k 4.2 overclock 4.6
    2 ssd drives
    16 gb Rams 3200mhz
    Motherboar Asus hero maximus 8 alpha
    and GTX 1070

    and still waiting for the sync man It has been almost a week i think


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    I have a similar PC with 32 GB RAM, it took 25 hours with bootstrap < 48 hrs online. Over numerous tests.

    We know you can still be “unlucky” and it be longer, but that was a compromise increasing a temprorary memory allocation (without denigrating normal operation). Future updates to the blockchain code base will address the main speed issues.

    Version 0.11.2 does the a bootstrap.dat sync in 2.5 hours.


  • | Tip Moonman

    Could an automated update server be implemented, whre the application could pull the bootstrap file automaticaly?

    So what exactly I must do here , wait for the next version or keep running my computer until sync


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    I suggest the same as loads of other post, you need to have your PC on till sync. Stopping and starting the PC can delay further (picking up peers). If you are under 2 years to go, and it appears to stall, you can restart the program.

    This is only an issue during initial sync, which will take a lot shorter than that in the next version.
