My computer got shut off due to a power outage and when I rebooted my bitcoin core it was stuck on connecting to peers. I was told to do a -reindex-chainstate with dbcache set as high as possible. Even with these high settings of dbcache=7000 and 16 core cpu, why does reindexing take more than 24+ hours? Also I'm not using a SSD, but a regular HDD.

  • What does "suck on connecting to peers" mean? And what told you to do a reindex chainstate?

  • Mr. Pieter told me to. see: bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/79760/… Oct 5 '18 at 22:06
  • Nowhere in that are you told to reindex.

  • Your right. he just mentions dbcache. I must have gotten it from another related question where someone had the same issue of connecting to peers. This happened right after my VM box got shut off unexpectedly. Oct 6 '18 at 3:40
  • Do you have pruning turned on? Oct 7 '18 at 23:11
