Routing view displays screenful of latest routing events. This information
is not persisted in LND so the view always starts empty and is lost once
The events are in one of four states:
active- HTLC pending
settled- preimage revealed, HTLC removed
failed- payment failed at a downstream node
linkfail- payment failed at this node
If you prefer to run
