peer network with different startingheight value

+1 vote

Dear Team,

I have a network composed by 4 nodes, one seed node and other 3 nodes connected to it. I checked they are in sync with the <getblockchaininfo> command. All of them show the same values for the following parameters:
"blocks" : 477,
"headers" : 477,
"bestblockhash" : "00110f363f98ff344e93d5491b79644783abd2f58a7b257540be7c416596a562"

However, if I log in in the seed node and I send the command <getpeerinfo>, I get the list of the 3 peers with a different value for one of them:
[
    {
        "id" : 1,
        "startingheight" : 462,
        "banscore" : 0,
        "synced_headers" : 476,
        "synced_blocks" : 476,

    },
    {
        "id" : 3,
        "startingheight" : 477,
        "banscore" : 0,
        "synced_headers" : 477,
        "synced_blocks" : 477,
    },
    {
        "id" : 4,
        "startingheight" : 477,
        "banscore" : 0,
        "synced_headers" : 477,
        "synced_blocks" : 477,
    }
]

 

Could you kindly help me in understanding? Thanks, Fabio

The startingheight is just a number given by each node when it is first connected to, reporting how many blocks it currently has in its chain. So there's no reason to worry about different values.
