Node not making challenges

Hello,

I made new node 12hrs ago and it doesn’t have any challenge (or have one, but after adding fw rules, pm2 and restart no challgenge).

https://securenodes2.eu.zensystem.io/nodes/19861/detail

There were peer count exception but now it has 8-9, so there is not any problem. Blocks are increasing slowly, but they are. Can I look to another log or somewhere to check where can be problem?

My pm2 logs:

Try click the Send a Challange button/link on your secure nodes details page on securenodes.zensystem.io. That should trigger a challenge and you should see the result of it shortly.

Best of luck,
Andreas

Thank you very much. I don’t even know what are challenges< This is only for checking node performance? Important is, that node is online and stable and sometimes have some performance peak?

The challenges are issued daily to ensure that all securenodes are consistently capable of dedicating the resources required to generate a shielded transaction.
