Confirmation time for assets

+1 vote

I'm running a single-node multichain server with block generation set to 5 seconds.
What we're trying to do is make a sendAssetFrom call so we need to wait to the asset to be confirmed, but sometimes it may take several "blocks" for this, maybe 25/28 seconds.
Is that correct? Having more than one node can help?

An issued asset should be confirmed immediately in the next block (especially in a single node blockchain which cannot fork) - if this is not the case, we would like to understand why by seeing your blockchain directory. Please confirm?

Sure, we can compress the blockchain dir and send you the file. If that will be ok, let me know where can i send it
I'll send you a private message with the address.

We looked at the files you sent and it appears that the issue is that there are sometimes longer delays before block confirmations, not that the issuance has to wait more than one block to be confirmed. This could be caused by very highly variable CPU load on this system - does that make sense? We will look into approving MultiChain's behavior in this situation but for now a workaround might be to not run very heavy processes on the same system, or increase MultiChain's scheduling priority.
