Where are we now?

Well, it’s been a couple weeks since I started this adventure. How has it gone?

It has not yet been a success.

Progress has been slower than I expected. I didn't think I’d be routing significant payments by now but I thought I’d be further along. I am routing a few payments but I’m only taking about 2sats per day in fees. Things have just been slow. But there has been progress - since starting, I’ve forwarded payments of ㋛12,861,573sats.

I thought balancing channels would be easier. I have two tools at my disposal here - move-balance and Loop Out. But after those first two weeks over half of my channels were still unbalanced. Fundamentally, I couldn’t balance those channels because there didn't seem to be enough outbound capacity on their side. If I try to build a circular route for 500,000sats from one channel out through other nodes and back through a different channel (which is what move-balance tries to do), all those nodes must be able to route 500,000sats. And it looks like the nodes on the other end of these channels couldn’t.

Similarly if I tried to Loop Out 500,000sats, the node on the other end of my channel must be able to route 500,000sats to the Loop swap server. And they often couldn’t do that either.

This can be a sporadic problem though, so I thought it would be worth waiting and retrying.

After a couple of weeks, I’ve succeeded in bringing a modicum of balance to most of my channels, and I’ve closed the ones where I just couldn’t. If it never forwarded any payments and I couldn’t move-balance to it or Loop Out of it, I closed it.

A couple of nodes did open channels with me, and I’ve tried to balance them. One was yalls.org, which was interesting to balance. I thought I’d try a different approach here. Since it was a large channel (at ㋛5,000,000) I thought I’d:

  1. Open another (full) channel with it,
  2. Use move-balance to move ㋛2,500,000 from the new channel to the empty channel,
  3. Close the channel I opened.

That would have two on-chain transactions (opening and closing the channel) instead of purely Lightning routing fees, but it would be roughly comparable to Loop Out and I was curious if I’d run into any new problems.

So I opened the channel:

$ lncli openchannel --local_amt 4200000 --node_key 03d06758583bb5154774a6eb221b1276c9e82d65bbaceca806d90e20c108f4b1c7

}

(Yalls currently has a restriction that channels must be at least 4,200,000sats.)

After waiting for it to open, I could then use move-balance to move 2,500,000sats:

$ lntoolkit move-balance --from 635724429132103681 --to 635427561057812481 --amount 2500000 --max-fees-msat 30000000 --max-routes 1 --verbose

Which, in case you’re interested in such things, generated this route:

{

"payment_hash": "7+YeqKsob0TT3JIM6wquR3glEuaA4wfi6LY0HPNFnQI=",

"payment_hash_string": "efe61ea8ab286f44d3dc920ceb0aae47782512e680e307e2e8b6341cf3459d02",

}

],

"total_fees_msat": "6251000",

"total_amt_msat": "2506251000"

}

]

}

(Yalls charges a lot for routing!)

Then I closed that channel:

$ lncli closechannel f17adbc9ff8fd66d44b57f04c87d0f3328364b9184a09ffcd9a32659ae6245ea 1

}

And there we go - a balanced channel with Yalls!

Review of channel strategy

I opened channels with a few strategies:

  • ‘Destination’ nodes, where payments are likely to go
  • Moneni’s NodeMatch
  • A random smattering of non-central nodes with more than 20 channels but fewer than 50.

How are they doing?

‘Destination’ nodes: BitRefill, CoinGate, Lightning-Roulette, Loop’s swap server.

Not bad. All of these channels have been the source or destination for payments.

Moneni’s NodeMatch: powernode.io, rompert, LightningPowerUsers, satoshilabs.com, BitMEXResearch.

Again, not bad. Most haven’t forwarded as many payments as the destination nodes, but others like rompert are forwarding more.

Moneni’s NodeMatch, round 2: Sagittarius A, ACINQ, 1ML.com node ALPHA, LightningTo.Me, ln.BitSoapBox.com

Not well. The last three were culled because I found it impossible to balance those channels. ACINQ too was quite hard to balance but it succeeded in the end. There’s a few payments routed from the two remaining - Sagittarius A and ACINQ - but not much activity.

Random smattering: blackgold, VIX8, SLL, NSCasa, ln.taborsky.cz

Poorly. Only the first two survived the cull, and there’s been very little activity. I may close these.

Others: BonsaiSoftware, LN-Zone.com

Variable. BonsaiSoftware opened a channel with me and has routed a bunch of payments through it. LN-Zone.com opened a channel with me and... nothing. I’m not sure if this is my fault or not, or what I can do to help here.

In any case, my most popular inbound channel was rompert.com🔵 [631590265456623616], and my most popular outbound channel was Loop Out’s swap server [632366520641650689].

I’m considering closing any channels that have had zero activity and opening a bigger channel with rompert. Does that sound like a good idea?

‘Nice Enough Near-Future’

Score: 4/5

This was OK-to-good. I enjoy technology-based near-future stories, but this didn’t seem particularly credible. Not the tech, for once! Just the general approach, the ‘it wouldn’t happen like that...’, or the ‘well if that happened then why didn’t...’ of it all. Maybe that’s just me though.

‘Nope, Just Didn’t Care’

Didn’t like the characters or the story. Just didn’t care. I don’t usually like the How We Got Here trope in TV and apparently I don’t like it any better in book form.

‘New Detective On Cases’

Score: 5/5

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Yeah, it’s a crime novel with a flawed detective with a history and a cast of dodgy characters, but so are many other books. I enjoyed the writing here though, more than I usually do, as well as the nice characterisation.

I don’t know how well it’ll last, but I guess this is going to be the first novel in a series. Hmm.

‘Interesting, Hard To Explain’

Score: 4/5

I deliberately don’t read previews, book reviews, or even the blurb on the back of books if I can avoid it. I enjoy reading a book the way the author intended, rather than take on someone else’s opinions on what’s important in the book before I’ve even read it.

So I didn’t have a clue what I was getting into when I started this book!

I’m glad. It certainly didn’t go the way I thought it would, even after the first couple of chapters, but if I’d known what others thought would make a good summary I think it would have made reading the path it was going to take clearer, and the book would have been less for that.

So I’m not going to tell you anything about it, other than I enjoyed it.

Series: Let’s create a routing LND node

Supporting this series

If you want to support this series, you can:

  • Use tippin.me to send me a tip.
  • Use Tootmoney to ask for a Lightning invoice. On Mastodon, just send a toot like ‘@OpinionatedGeek #TootMoney #send 10000’ to have it reply with an invoice QR code.
  • Send bitcoin to this address: bc1qsaampnjm5ykcpd40pstcewt75xrtfy5cxpnpdf

Not much to report. Waited for Loop to sort itself out and the forced-close channels to close and I think both have resolved themselves.

No new routing, but there are no pending channel closes and none of the channels seem to have any huge pending payments like yesterday.

I’m wondering about separating out popular channels in the report. I could maybe summarise activity at the top the same way I separate out Pending. I like the idea of the report being prioritised with the more important information at the start.

Loop problems

Some Loop Outs were still sitting at ‘INITIATED’ this morning, and I was seeing some odd behaviour in some channels:

A local balance of 489,395 sats and a remote balance of 0 sats, but with a capacity of 1,000,000 sats? Hmm. The logs showed the outgoing prepayment had failed (with an UnknownPaymentHash error...) but the main transfer seemed to be stuck in limbo.

I restarted the Loop server, and when I next ran loop monitor some of the INITIATEDs had changed to FAILED. I’d hoped this would unfreeze things and allow the main payment to roll back too but no - now the channel was force-closing!

I really don’t know what’s going on there.

If it was just this channel I’d think it might just be the other party forcing the channel closed, but I have two channels force-closing now and another one with the frozen balance like the above.

So I raised an issue about this on Github. There’s lots of log details there if you’re interested. I’d love to know what was going on.

Part of the problem is it’s hard to trace what has happened. I just don’t have enough experience tracing such things yet, but also it is awkward for the uninitiated. For instance, when you loop out you specify a channel ID like 632050960802447360. The logs don’t show this though. Logs show the hex ID like 0xc00050b4d0 (or sometimes the channel point) so searching for the channel ID you used is useless.

The logs show the full payments that were sent, so you can decode them. But they don’t appear in the list of payments (at least as far as I can tell). Should they be there? Well, one has failed, so maybe not. The other has not yet succeeded or failed (I think), so maybe not. But I don’t know for sure that they shouldn’t appear here, and if they don’t appear here I’m not sure where else I can look for them.

I need more practice at this.

So I did spend some of today trying, and I learned where more things were. But not enough to help me figure out what’s going on.

I’m reluctant to do too much else with my channels right now. I’m not sure what’s happening with some of the Loop Outs and I don’t want to confuse things further.

I did update the lntoolkit report command to retrieve and show the forwards each channel has done that month/week/day. I like the idea of this but I don’t think I’ve got the formatting right yet.

Here’s the latest report:

Series: Let’s create a routing LND node

Supporting this series

If you want to support this series, you can:

  • Use tippin.me to send me a tip.
  • Use Tootmoney to ask for a Lightning invoice. On Mastodon, just send a toot like ‘@OpinionatedGeek #TootMoney #send 10000’ to have it reply with an invoice QR code.
  • Send bitcoin to this address: bc1qsaampnjm5ykcpd40pstcewt75xrtfy5cxpnpdf

Just a short update today. Some more routing happened - 11 payments routed, but they all used the same in and out channels. Interesting to watch.

I still have too many unbalanced channels, and they tend to have cascading problems. Because they’re unbalanced in my channel, this increases the likelihood they’re unbalanced with their other channels, which means rebalancing or loop payments are more likely to fail too. So they’re unbalanced and they tend to remain unbalanced.

On one hand, I’m minded to close channels that consistently fail like this.

On the other hand, these nodes may be the ones most in need of the inbound liquidity my unbalanced channel provides.

On the gripping hand, if there’s no evidence they’re using that inbound liquidity it might be better applied elsewhere.

I still haven’t closed any channels, and Loop Out did succeed with a couple of channels today where it failed yesterday. But I am actively considering closing some channels.

Here’s the latest report:

More failures

Talking about docker and attack surfaces yesterday spurred me to remove python from some of my servers. It did not go well.

I thought removing python would remove python. I did not think it would remove the entire networking subsystem, leaving the server disconnected - and with no way to reinstall networking without access to the network. Oh well.

I had my channel backup safely stored on a different machine so it wasn’t catastrophic, but fixing it all required a bit of work. Copying the data off the (un-networked) server was the hard bit. Once I got that done - thanks Vultr! - setting up a new instance was straightforward because nearly everything was using docker. I’m glad docker made it easy to recover, but I’m still surprised that some important networking stuff has a dependency on python (somehow).

Looping

Many of my channels are still unbalanced and refuse to route anything to rebalance them. So I figured I’d try Loop Out on them.

None worked. I tried 12 Loop Outs, and all 12 failed.

Well, it’s instructive! I’m doing this experiment (in public) to try to find out what works and what doesn’t, and it certainly seems that some channels aren’t worth the effort. I’m not going to close any channels today, but I do want to think about what kind of tests I can do to determine whether channels are worthwhile or not.

Probing

One of the things I want to try is probing routes more. I’ve mentioned probing before, but it allows me to use a fake invoice to see where payments would fail if they were real.

Here’s the result of a probe to Yalls.org:

$ lntoolkit probe-routes --amount 10000 --max-routes 1 --from 632050960761552897 --to 626559999681888257 --to-pub-key 03d06758583bb5154774a6eb221b1276c9e82d65bbaceca806d90e20c108f4b1c7 --probe-all-hops

Probe failed at hop 3 with Final Incorrect CLTV Expiry

2019/05/11 14:38:23 📄 No tip to send. That's OK, I still love you! 🥰

So the payment got as far as Solidus but then failed with the error ‘Final Incorrect CLTV Expiry’. That could be a bug in my code or it could just be my graph hasn’t received an update. In any case, it shows that my channel with ACINQ works as expected, and also that ACINQ can, in turn, forward that fairly small payment.

Trying to route through a bigger payment through a different channel shows a more common problem:

Probe failed at hop 2 with Temporary Channel Failure

2019/05/11 15:55:58 📄 No tip to send. That's OK, I still love you! 🥰

‘Temporary Channel Failure’ can mean anything, but one common cause is that there isn’t enough balance at the right end of the channel to allow forwarding of funds. It looks like the channel between ‘ln.taborsky.cz’ and ‘blue 🐘’ has a capacity of 1600000 but it doesn’t have at least 100000 on the ‘ln.taborsky.cz’ side.

Or it could just be a transient error.

I’m wondering how useful it would be to use probes to various destination sites, and to do it methodically. Every night try routing a fake payment to a bunch of ‘destination’ nodes, and see which consistently succeed, which consistently fail. And try different payment sizes to get a better feel for the actual routable capacity of a channel.

Or would sending that many probes be a problem for other sites? It’s not just that I might get blacklisted (there are no blacklisting mechanisms in LND yet, but I can see the need) - I also want to be a ‘good citizen’ of the Lightning network. I don’t want to put undue stress on other nodes. But I do want to use tools to get a better idea of the actual topology of the network from my node’s perspective.

If you’ve any thoughts on this, please do let me know.

Here’s the current report - not much change from before, apart from a complete reinstall of the OS...

Docker

I mentioned docker on the LND Slack earlier today and figured I should expand on it here. Some hilarious(?) server issues mean I can’t do much else.

I use docker to run things on my ‘real’ servers - servers that are on testnet or mainnet 24 hours a day. I like the idea of it. It does take a bit of knowledge to get up and running with it, and it takes a bit more to see the point and think it’s worth doing, but it does help.

For me it makes a bunch of things easier:

  • Encapsulation of services.
  • Build-time versus run-time requirements.
  • Server maintenance and ease of migration

I’ll try to explain each of these.

Encapsulation of services

When you run your program inside a docker ‘container’, what it can do is quite limited. It looks to the program like it has the whole machine to itself - it has the OS kernel, the whole filesystem, all the network ports and so on, all to itself. It doesn’t really though - it’s all just contained in a special ‘box’. It looks like it has a filesystem, and it can read and write however it likes - but those changes don’t make it to your actual machine unless they’re in an area you have specifically mapped for that container. And it can listen on any port it likes, but they’re not your machine’s ports - if you want to actually expose one of the container’s ports to the world, you have to explicitly choose to do that.

You limit how your program can read, save and listen by running it in a container. By limiting it this way, you make it more predictable and easier to manage. (It doesn’t matter if your program accidentally or maliciously decides to listen on port 12345 - if you haven’t declared your container is to listen on that port, no traffic will get to your program.)

By looking at how the container is configured you can easily see which files or directories it can access, and which ports is uses.

Build-time versus run-time requirements

There are a lot of great tools out there for LND. But if I’m running a ‘production’ server, I want to limit its attach surface by having as little on it as possible. I don’t want to install dev tools like the ‘go’ compiler if I don’t have to. I can reduce my exposure to problems here by using containers, either ones I build myself or - better - ones validated by the projects who own the containers.

It goes beyond just dev tools like the ‘go’ compiler though. If you’ve used ‘node’, you’ll know you can sometimes get into weird versioning issues with files in your node_modules. (It’s better now than it used to be.) But if a project supplies its own docker image, you can be assured that they’ve addressed any versioning issues and supplied the versions that work - all embedded in the container so you don’t need to npm install anything. If you’ve used ‘python’ you’ll know how you have different virtual environments for different situations, but if the project supplies its own docker image it already comes with the right version of python installed and ready to run in its own container. Versioning problems are addressed by those most capable of handling them - the project team - rather than every single person that wants to deploy that project.

And since you’re running the same container as everyone else, you don’t have to worry about particular issues with a particular compiler - you are running the exact same binaries as everyone else running that container, and in exactly the same OS image and environment. The only differences between your setup and someone else’s are due to the docker configuration - usually either the networking or filesystem mappings.

Server maintenance and ease of migration

To use containers, you need to install docker. (Or something else - other container options are available.) But once you have that installed and set up, you don’t have to worry about much else.

If you want to move everything to another server, you just need to get that new server running docker and then copy across any mapped data. You don’t need to go through a litany of dependencies to install every time you want to create a new server.

In practice

How does all this work in practice with LND? Well, Lightning Labs don’t currently provide their own docker images, so you’ll have to build them yourself or use ones others have built (if you trust them). I just build them myself.

It’s pretty easy. Once you’ve got the lnd repo, you just:

cd docker

docker-compose build

Note: if you intend to run Loop with your LND server, you need to update your local file docker/lnd/Dockerfile with the changes in my pull request: Build LND subservers when building docker image.

One really neat thing here - the build itself happens inside the docker image building process, so you don’t have to have ‘go’ installed - a docker image with the right version of go is used to build the binaries, and then discarded once they’re successfully built.

Then you - somehow - push that lnd image to your server. There are a bunch of ways to do this, and the one you choose is up to you. I push to a private docker repository but you might prefer to use docker’s own free hub.

On the server, you can use the normal docker commands to run and manage the container. I usually don’t bother. These days I prefer putting things into a docker-compose.yml file, describing the containers and all their dependencies in one place.

Here’s (most of) my docker-compose.yml file:

version: '2'

services:

lnd:

command: >-

volumes:

- ./rpc:/rpc

loop:

restart: always

command: >-

loopd

--network=mainnet

--rpclisten=0.0.0.0:11010

--lnd.host lnd.opinionatedgeek.com:10009

--lnd.tlspath=/root/.lnd/tls.cert

--lnd.macaroondir=/root/.lnd/data/chain/bitcoin/mainnet

depends_on:

- lnd

links:

- lnd:lnd.opinionatedgeek.com

logging:

options:

max-size: '10m'

max-file: '5'

volumes:

- ./home:/root

From this you can see all the command-line parameters I’m specifying, which saves me having to remember them every time.

And you can see that the only network port I’m allowing it to use is 9735. No public incoming connections to 8080 or 10009 will make it to LND.

And you can see that the only mapped filesystems are the home and rpc directories - anything in those directories is persisted to the real filesystem, anything outside those directories is discarded when the container terminates. If I want to copy this LND server to new hardware, I just need to copy the home and rpc directories.

I use Loop as well, and it requires a way to talk to LND. Launching both from the same docker-compose.yml file means they ‘share’ a network, so Loop can happily talk to LND on port 10009 with none of that traffic ever leaving the machine.

The ‘restart’ settings mean the services will run when I log off, and will restart automatically if the machine reboots. (I’ll still have the problem of unlocking the wallet though.)

Upgrading LND is then a straightforward process of:

  • Building the new docker image.
  • Pushing that docker image to some shared repository.
  • Pulling that image down to every server you want to run it on.
  • Running docker-compose down followed by docker-compose up -d

And finally here’s the latest report:
