After I finished my single node PoA setup, I wanted to test how many TPS it can handle.

During the load testing, I noticed that the transactions have stopped mining.

Instead, I am getting "Transaction culled...." logs.

Any idea what's happening?

Culled transactions log

Transaction didn't get into any block, but some other tx with the same nonce got.


  • But it has stopped mining further transactions also

  • The solution was to kill and rerun the node, but i don’t want this to happen on production

There seem to be a bug in local transactions in parity,

To overcome it I have added this flag when running my node --tx-queue-per-sender 100000
