Testnet has stopped producing block since 2020/08/17

Should we expect some thing BIG or Bad?
Hope everything goes well.
Cheers

Hi @trans! We are performing a release update to v0.6.0 (stay tuned on github for the next release), so we disabled our testnet client which continuously sends transactions. We will update once the release is fully deployed and live.

The release is complete and the test client has been turned back on. Thanks!

Quick note from Germany on 0.6

  1. Update rate now 100 blocks per increment.
  2. Each 100 block increment takes 5-7 seconds to update.
  3. Estimate or remaining time from command line still wildly off as it is estimating 42 minutes
    Syncing account… ⠄ [00:08:15] [###>----------------] 21801/135395 (42m)

It should actually take (Check my math)
(135395 - 21801) around 113600 blocks remaining
About 6 seconds for every 100 blocks = 6816 seconds remaining
== 113 minutes remaining

  1. You may want to consider calling ProgressBar::reset_eta periodically (every 5 minutes) or simply remove the display of eta from here:
    https://github.com/mobilecoinofficial/mobilecoin/blob/c34e6cfe78e7e9451e7c900f2ba35512d61d60b7/testnet-client/src/main.rs#L732

It is better not to set expectations, then to make them and miss them. And most people using the technology at this revision of the software can do the estimation on their own. :slight_smile:
