Hello All, and Happy New Year! To understand why there is a steady stream of channel updates, even when fee parameters don't seem to actually change, I made hourly backups of the routing table of one of our nodes, and compared these routing tables to see what exactly was being modified.
It turns out that: - there are a lot of disable/enable/disable etc…. updates which are just sent when a channel is disabled then enabled again (when nodes go offline for example ?). This can happen there are also a lot of updates that don’t change anything (just a new timestamp and signatures but otherwise same info), up to several times a day for the same channel id In both cases we end up syncing info that we already have. I don’t know yet how best to use this when syncing routing tables, but I thought it was worth sharing anyway. A basic checksum that does not cover all fields, but only fees and HTLC min/max values could probably be used to improve routing table sync ?
