The Solana network has been shut down again.
The last outage lasted about four and a half hours, later the validators were able to restart the main network.
“The instruction of the durable disposable number caused part of the network to consider the block invalid because of which there was no consensus,” explained Solana Labs co-founder Anatoly Yakovenko.
An error in this function caused nodes to generate different outputs, which led to a consensus failure and eventually shut down the network.
The network has now been restarted with this function disabled. Yakovenko added that bug fixes “will be released as soon as possible.”
