Cardano Stakepool Performance
Proven ability to mint blocks
Cardano is now fully decentralised as of March 31st 2021, this means more blocks will be minted by stakepools like ADA Farm
As we move along the Cardano roadmap more and more transactions will be performed on the blockchain eventually the rewards will be funded by the transaction fees.
There are now two brilliant sites which have been created and offer an in depth view of pool performance along with rewards and pool.pm awesome storyline, check them out:

Head on over to @ADAFarmio on twitter if you have any questions
Node Upgrade 1.31.0
Just to confirm FARM stakepool has been keeping up to date with the latest releases, I just haven’t updated this section but I’ll work on making the website more useful. Currently minting blocks so no issues across all 3 servers.
Node Upgrade 1.26.1
This update coincides with the addition of FARM’s new relay server based in the USA which will help with worldwide propagation and resilience
Server upgrades are schedule after the end of the forecasted epoch’s blocks
The Mary Hardfork event is soon
All of ADA Farm’s servers have been upgraded to version 1.25.1, there will be no interuption to rewards payments and delegators don’t need to take any action.
This upgrade was done a couple of weeks ago and server performance and block minting times are even faster than before
There is a Hardfork on the 16th of December.
All of ADA Farm’s servers have been upgraded to version 1.24.2, there will be no interuption to rewards payments and delegators don’t need to take any action.
Issue: 19/1/21 06:31am, alerted to missed block at 6am, worked out the issue was with recently rotated KES keys through CNTOOLs which was declared current KES period of 804 instead of 150 which led to the error:
New KES keys were issued manually by 10am which allowed the final assigned block of the epoch to be minted.
Issue: 8/12/20, missed one block due to a server time synchronisation issue caused by a “soft restart” of the server.
Resolution: Only use “Hard Restarts” on all servers, check Chrony sync status daily along with other checks. block minting resumed
