This is related to Geth's Freezer functionality, which "moves ancient chain segments out of the active database into immutable append-only flat files."

The message you're seeing is informational, so it's nothing to worry about.

Geth's freeze() function (in freezer.go), where that message is output, does the following:

"freeze is a background thread that periodically checks the blockchain for any import progress and moves ancient data from the fast database into the freezer."

Freezer was implemented in PR #17814, and is described in detail in the PR.

  • Hmm, not sure. Can't immediately see where that is in the code. So the actual message is "message loop"? Aug 9 '20 at 17:20
  • Yes keep repeating itself on a mesage loop
