Gossip service panics when a message exceeds BLOB_SIZE #5430
@aeyakovenko current theory on this is infact the bloom filter but there's a reason it only happened on some nodes.
Here's what I think is happening.
When a bunch of nodes are catching up, they are seeing tons of slots in a very short amount of time. That causes them to update their EpochSlots (for repairman protocol) and Vote on every new slot they see.
These new CrdsValues are being pushed to gossip at such a high rate that the keep replacing the older ones. The older ones are now residing in
So looks like we need a limit on the bloom size or introduce a new blob type that bumps the limit back up. Thoughts ?
