CoinEx|Does Solana’s 18-hour Network Outage Raise Doubts about Its Decentralization?

“Solana mainnet-beta is experiencing intermittent instability. This began approximately 45 minutes ago, and engineers are investigating the issue.”

“Resource exhaustion in the network is causing a denial of service, engineers are working towards a resolution.”

“Sonala Mainnet Beta encountered a large increase in transaction load which peaked at 400,000 TPS. These transactions flooded the transaction processing queue, and lack of prioritization of network-critical messaging caused the network to start forking. This forking led to excessive memory consumption, causing some nodes to go offline. Engineers across the ecosystem attempted to stabilize the network, but were unsuccessful.”
