The developers have fixed the timeout bug that caused the last crash of the Solana network on June 1st.
According to a report by Solana Labs on June 5, Solana’s fifth crash in 2022 was caused by a bug in the “non – viable transaction feature” that caused the network to stop block production for about four and a half hours.
“The persistent non – transaction feature is disabled in v1.9.28 / v1.10.23 to prevent network crashes in the event of a recurrence.”
“Non-viable transactions will not be processed until the derogations are implemented and the feature is re-enabled in a future release,” they said.
The term “non-durable transactions” refers to a type of transaction on Solana that is designed to expire, unlike a normal network transaction that typically has a short lifespan of about 2 minutes before a blockchain occurs. to validate.
It is typically used to support transactions involving channels such as custody services that require longer than usual to “produce a signature for the transaction” according to Solana documentation.
Solana Labs noted that “durable nonce transactions require a unique mechanism to prevent duplicate processing, and are serially processed,” but indicated a timeout error after processing a nonce durable transaction as a regular transaction and failed, but it was re – installed, causing the network to shut down.
“After the failed transaction was processed, but before the nonce was reused, the user resubmitted the same transaction for processing. This new submission implemented the bug in the past, ”the report reads.
