I am running a GETH instance on my machine

geth --testnet --syncmode "fast" --ipcpath /home/ubuntu/.ethereum/geth.ipc --rpc --rpcapi db,eth,net,web3,personal --cache=2048 --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr 127.0.0.1 --rpccorsdomain "*" --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3,personal" --bootnodes "enode://20c9ad97c081d63397d7b685a412227a40e23c8bdc6688c6f37e97cfbc22d2b4d1db1510d8f61e6a8866ad7f0e17c02b14182d37ea7c3c8b9c2683aeb6b733a1@52.169.14.227:30303,enode://6ce05930c72abc632c58e2e4324f7c7ea478cec0ed4fa2528982cf34483094e9cbc9216e7aa349691242576d552a2a56aaeae426c5303ded677ce455ba1acd9d@13.84.180.240:30303,enode://94c15d1b9e2fe7ce56e458b9a3b672ef11894ddedd0c6f247e0f1d3487f52b66208fb4aeb8179fce6e3a749ea93ed147c37976d67af557508d199d9594c35f09@192.81.208.223:30303" --verbosity=6 --port "30303" --networkid 3

The Block height on Ropsten currently is Block 3454032

When I call eth.syncing from my console I get

currentBlock: 2848357, highestBlock: 3093429, knownStates: 6039183, pulledStates: 6039183, startingBlock: 2847921

highestBlock on mine reads lower than what Ropsten is displaying. Is the going to be a problem when the sync is completed at 3093429 and Ropsten is at 3454032?

Am I about to find out after 2 days of syncing it was all for nothing?

As far as eth.syncing doesn't show false your geth node is under syncing process, you need to wait.

  • I understand that it must wait to sync, are you saying the height displayed on my view locally is incorrect? and that it just needs to sync no matter what that numbers says? If that is a true that seems like a bug to me where block height is displayed incorrectly. – JJacquet Jun 17 '18 at 9:18
  • The info from eth.syncing not supose to be true, it's changed while your node does sync, you need to wait, there is no ETA, it can be an hour or a day. – Зелёный Jun 17 '18 at 9:19
