I am struggling with failing geth with my Dapp. I got an error like this:


UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: Error: Returned error: missing trie node 3b78b9f0a935d03af6f70ac4173f718e46b62573d4363ff5839f41a6df4f2429 (path 020f06020608)

It happens randomly at least once a month, and i have to do resync every time.

What may cause this problem?

I need a stable solution, should i migrate to Parity?

I use Geth 1.8.22.

  • This issue happened to me when geth goes out of memory, I think it's a bug. I advise you to open an issue on geth's github – Badr Bellaj Jul 7 at 18:29
