Farmer doesn't farm

Issue Report


  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04.6 LTS
  • CPU Architecture: x86_64-v3
  • RAM: 32GB
  • Storage:: 1TB
  • Plot Size: 50GB
  • Subspace Deployment Method: CLI


Farmer starts ok, I don’t see any error but nothing seems to happen. Node is in sync and seems to be fine.

I’m on subspace-farmer-ubuntu-x86_64-v3-gemini-3d-2023-apr-25.

Here’s how I’m starting the node / farmer:

./subspace-node \
  --chain gemini-3d \
  --execution wasm \
  --blocks-pruning archive \
  --state-pruning archive \
  --dsn-disable-private-ips \
  --no-private-ipv4 \
  --validator \
  --base-path "/home/subspace/data" \
  --name [NAME] 

./subspace-farmer --base-path "/home/subspace/data" farm \
  --disable-private-ips \
  --reward-address [ADDRESS] \
  --plot-size 50G

I’ve setup port forwarding for 30333, 30433, 30533 tcp and ports are open in the firewall.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Start farmer
  2. Check logs
  3. Go for a walk
  4. Check logs again

Expected result

  • Some farming activity showing up in the logs

What happens instead

  • Farmer is idle

This is all I see in the farmer’s logs:

it seems your farmer isnt facing any major obvious bugs just yet, how long has the node and farmer been running?

Are you seeing any errors on the node side?

Somehow it got unstuck. Now I see quite a lot of errors:

Meanwhile the node:

Hello do you know if farmer/node can be ran on Ubuntu 22-23?

Yes Ubuntu 22-23 should work just fine for this instance, I would suggest using our latest version v0.4.2 if you are facing any troubles
