Using Parity, sometimes I see something like:

2017-09-25 00:19:21     1/25 peers

and sometimes it's

2017-09-24 16:19:13     0/ 2/25 peers

What is that first number?

Why does it only appear sometimes?

Why does it mean that it's zero?

Thank you.

  • The one showing you three numbers is outdated by at least 3 months, please upgrade :) – Afr Sep 26 '17 at 12:39
  • @5chdn Okay thank you. Also which question is the duplicate? Is it possible to include that when marking a duplicate? Sometimes because of the SE interface I do not realize that my question was accepted. I get a blank page and have to retype it. But now I can't find my other question to actually get an answer. – stone.212 Sep 27 '17 at 21:28
  • @5chdn I checked and the version with three number is Parity/v1.7.0-unstable from July 28. So only two months old. I will upgrade to 1.7.2 but also want to make sure you know I was not running some ancient version. Is it really important to upgrade every two months to a minor -.-.2 version? – stone.212 Sep 29 '17 at 5:44
  • No, if you run a stable or beta version, you are fine for a couple of weeks, but if you run a nightly version, you should upgrade daily. – Afr Sep 29 '17 at 8:22
  • @5chdn if you make your first comment (re: upgrade) into an answer, I will mark it complete. But it would be nice to know what the legacy answer was regarding that first number. – stone.212 Sep 30 '17 at 2:24
