My Geth server in light mode was running without any issue up to yesterday. But after that, I only receive these messages continuously!

And this does not finish!

May you help me to solve this issue please?

  • Are you behind a NAT (router)? Do you port forward? What system do you run this on (Windows / Linux / Mac)? How do you start the geth client? – Daniel Luca CleanUnicorn Apr 19 at 9:06
  • I'm using a Linux server (Ubuntu 18.04). This was my initial code: geth --syncmode light --rpc --rpcport 8545 --rpcapi personal,eth,web3,txpool – Mohammad Saberi Apr 19 at 9:08

It's Geth's peer discovery mechanism. You can use --nodiscover to disable it, which prevents your node from finding peers to connect, but it doesn't prevent other node in the network to connect to your node.
