Common connectivity errors

ErrorWhat it meansHow to fix
N/AIf you see “N/A” for deal success rate, this may be why. Once your miner seals its first sector, the dealbot will start attempting storage deals. From the moment a miner seals its first sector, you should have a storage deal result in max 48 hours (current timeout value for storage deals). For retrieval deals you should see a result in maxim 12 hours after the storage deal is reported successful (current timeout for retrieval deals ). The dashboard currently logs deal results only. If you have a storage or retrieval deal in progress you’ll still see “N/A” until it propagates to the chain.No miner action needed.
ClientQueryAsk failed : failed to open stream to miner: dial backoffThe connection to the remote host was attempted, but failed.This may be due to issues with porting, IPs set within the config file, or simply no internet connectivity. To fix, establish a public IP address.
ClientQueryAsk failed : failed to open stream to miner: failed to dialThe deal-bot was unable to open a network socket to the miner.This is likely because the miner’s IP is not publicly dialable, or a port issue. To fix, establish a public IP address.
ClientQueryAsk failed : failed to open stream to miner: routing: not foundThe deal-bot was unable to locate the miners IP and/or port.Made sure you published your miner’s multiaddresses on the chain
ClientQueryAsk failed : failed to read ask response: stream resetConnectivity loss, either due to a high packet loss rate or libp2p too aggressively dropping/failing connections.[Fix underway.] Lotus team is currently working on a change to use libp2p’s connection tagging feature, which will retry connections if dropped. (go-fil-markets/#361). No action needed from miners.
StorageDealError PublishStorageDeals: found message with equal nonce as the one we are looking for[Under investigation.] We suspect a chain validation errorNo action needed from miners.
ClientMinerQueryOffer - Retrieval query offer errored: get cid info: No state for /bafk2bz…[Under investigation.]No action needed from miners.
