I am connected to two nodes, mine and external. The external one emits pending transactions mine does not.

I started geth full node (after downloading a snapshot of the network). After 24h using eth.syncing I see.


currentBlock: 8024425,

highestBlock: 8024537,

knownStates: 102117366,

pulledStates: 102026296,

startingBlock: 1698957


Run command:

./geth --config ./config.toml --datadir /root/node --cache 18000 --rpc.allow-unprotected-txs --txlookuplimit 0 --ws

Can this be a synchronisation issue? Any thoughts? Thanks!


Yes, until the node has completed the synchronization it will not be able to validate transactions.


The command eth.syncing should return false. If you see anything else, you are still syncing.
