Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder Weekly Update - 4 August 2018
This is the first Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder weekly update. The intention is to provide full transparency into the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder’s operation.
This week Livepeer decided to increase the number of active transcoders from 10 to 15. The Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder went live when the number increase!
I feel excited about this. My gratitude to those who’ve staked with me so far. Today our collective stake is 4578.4. This puts the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder at spot 12 on the list of 15 active transcoders.
This week, the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder also went down for the first time. I think this happened yesterday. I’ve been working last evening and this morning to bring it back online. I’m also using this downtime to upgrade the server. It’s now a 4GB Linode VPS.
I’m still working to bring it back online. This forum post shows you how I’m doing that.
This experience turned my attention from learning -
-How to get a transcoder running
-Keep a transcoder running and recover from downtime, planned and unplanned
The latter is my focus for the upcoming week. I plan to continue upgrading the Chainflow Livepeer Transcoder soon too. It feels important to understand how to restart a transcoder, without missing a reward round, to upgrade it on regular basis.
