On the bright side, only ~160 reachable nodes have been stuck at the same height past 24 hours, half @ genesis block. lopp.net/projects/nodeh…

@fnxTX Yeah, I’ve had nodes get stuck in weird orphan block loops on several occasions and the only fix was to restart bitcoind.

@fnxTX We know 16% are well behind the tip; the question is how many are stuck. The next step will be to measure velocity.

Oddly enough, this is not due to a ton of nodes being stuck at the genesis block; the block heights are fairly evenly distributed.

16% of reachable bitcoin nodes are more than an hour behind the tip of the blockchain. Average node block height is 320,052 (2014-09-10)
