The core developers have tagged a new 2022.10.28.0 miner release. This release adds exponential back-off for Hotspots when requesting ledger information from Validators. This also ensures timely back-off when block times are too high and avoids too many Hotspots attempting to connect to a Validator. The pull request specifically addresses the blockchain outages over the past week from a Hotspot’s perspective.
