########## BAD BLOCK ######### Chain config: %v Number: %v Hash: 0x%x %v Error: %v ##############################
A bad block occurs when the received receipt and the execution result do not match. If a node stops with bad block log, it could be due to two reasons. - Case 1. The configuration of the node is wrong such, as the binary version. - Case 2. There’s a problem with the code. It is very likely that other nodes will also experience the same problem.
This error is critical, so if you see any bad block, please make an issue or report it to the Klaytn GitHub repository.

Drop an empty message from timeout channel
It means that the round change timer will expire. This error is printed if the timer closes accidentally.
The error may occur when the downloader is started. check next log is also printed: Block synchronisation started.

This log can be printed when the other node is disconnected. It is usually followed byDisconnected a P2P Peer log.
Check if the disconnected peer is reconnected again. If it is not reconnected, check the network status or peer connection admin_peers

Transaction aborted due to time limit hash=
The block execution time when mining should not exceed 250ms, so the last transaction can be aborted due to this time limit.
Confirm that the transaction enters the block.

Transaction failed, account skipped hash=b1b26c...6b220a err="insufficient balance for transfer" Error(before v1.6.2) Warn(after v1.6.2)
When a transaction cannot be executed during mining due to an insufficient balance in the from account (Theoretically, it occurs when the balance was sufficient at the time when the transaction was created and entered the txpool, but not at the actual execution time.)
Check if the from account is really out of balance.

Regenerated local transaction journal transactions=0 accounts=0
When node is shut down, local txs are journaled to a file (default file name is transactions.rlp). When node is restarted with the journaled file, the local transactions can be regenerated based on the file. - transactions: number of the regenerated local transaction. - accounts: number of the regenerated accounts(==from)

If the node is not a proposer at that block, and the consensus is successful, the node have executed(==validates) the block. In other words, a block is inserted. - gas: total gas spent during tx execution. This field is commonly used when testing the network to find the used gas per block.

A new P2P peer is connected, and it is a static node. A node added manually by using static-nodes.json or addpeer api is called static node. If it is a multichannel, it uses two ports. ex. [32323, 32324]. - id: dst peer id - NodeType: dst node type(cn,pn,en,bn) - ip: dst ip - mainPort: dst TCP listening port number - port: dst TCP listening port number including both the main port and sub port.

A new peer is connected as a multichannel peer. - id/peerID: my node’s peer id - conn: type of connection - inbound: somebody connects me - staticdial: static connection, such as static-nodes.json or addPeer - trusteddial: trusted connection, such as trust-nodes.json. it can be always reconnected and established even the number of connections exceeds max limit.

This log is printed to inform you that trie db has been committed. Here, commit means flushing db change to the actual db. A commit is made periodically. - Case 1. If the node is a full node, trie commit is made for every 128 block. - Case 2. If the node is an archive node, trie commit is made for every block. Commit is made at next circumstances, too. - , A commit is made when a node is shut down. - A commit is made when memory size exceeds the cap. Tip. - gc stands for garbage collection. Here, garbage collection means flushing db writes of trie node change. - A full node stores the information of every 128 cycle and the latest 128 blocks. - Archive node stores the information of every block.
