- Engineers continue to monitor the situation
On February 25, throughput on the Solana network slowed down. A day later, developers decided all problems. Currently, engineers continue to monitor network performance.
After Saturday’s fork, transaction throughput plummeted. Because of this, all activity in Solana has practically stopped. And after a while, the network was only able to process 93 transactions per second.
The validators decided that the best way to fix the halt would be to synchronize the restart and the fork. The first attempt was unsuccessful, they realized that they had chosen the wrong point to restart, and this increased the delay even more.
After that, the validators, working together with the developers of Solana Labs, again tried to restart. To do this, they needed to obtain the consent of 80% of the total number of participants. Subsequently, the required number of votes was collected and the Solana network was restored.
In the past, the blockchain has repeatedly faced freezes. This is because it is focused on supporting high transaction throughput, which can put a lot of pressure on nodes to stay in sync.
