I will make a note here when I am further along in the process. This is all very unfamiliar to me and I am taking extra precautions. If you have any guidance on sentry nodes it would help me out greatly.

ok. it isnt very difficult once you get the hang of it. but managing it and ensuring your validator nodes are secure is another thing. just holler if you need any help. I’d be more than happy to help and the community too.

@cop4200 @kenorb well noted.

@ClaudioxBarros ping here or the technical support thread if you need anything.

Hey @Richard

Is it normal for a validator to be missing blocks?

tendermint_consensus_validator_missed_blocks seems to be going up slowly. It’s not too many but I am just wondering if this is of concern or normal?

Can a full validator be in seed mode at the same time (seed_mode)? is that’s fine to enable, or better to create a separate node for it.

To answer your question about falling below the min self-delegation: your validator will become inactive and all your delegators will unbond from your validator. Once a validator becomes inactive, it will stop accruing revenue and not be subjected to any forms of penalty. Please refer to the Validator FAQ document under “min-self delegation” and “validator states”

still confused about sentry nodes :sweat_smile:

Q: What’s the difference between sentry and relay node? Or is it the same thing?

Q: Can validators change their IP address without any issues (and the network will update their information quickly enough)?

Q: How to do a snapshot from another synced node, which commands? Do you need to shut it down first?

I set up the monitoring bot today, is online.
But I changed the passwords to mines, but is not opening, I double checked passwords.
What could it be?
