Hard-Fork Assessment

We found and dealt with three issues during the hard-fork process.

Insufficient Specifications

When the fork process has begun, Gluwa unrolled a cluster of nodes to support the process of 1.1 update. Unfortunately, the specs selected for the nodes were not sufficient, which has caused connectivity problems in the cluster, and as a result, block production has slowed significantly.

Validator Defect

At that point, an external miner has started creating SendFund transactions (probably trying to speed up the block creation process); this, however, had an opposite effect because a defect in the validator code has surfaced — internal queries to the blockchain have started to be a performance problem. To fix the issue, the validators have to be updated to version 1.2. At this point, the fork has completed.

Sawtooth

A few issues with Sawtooth have been found; they will be dealt with as we move to Sawtooth 1.2.
