Stale History  [Go SDK]

A frontier server may be configured to reject historical requests when the history is known to be further out of date than the configured threshold. In such cases, this error is returned. To resolve this error (provided you are the frontier instance’s operator) please ensure that the ingestion system is running correctly and importing new ledgers. This error returns a HTTP 503 Error.


As with all errors Frontier returns, stale_history follows the Problem Details for HTTP APIs draft specification guide and thus has the following attributes:

Attribute Type Description
type URL The identifier for the error. This is a URL that can be visited in the browser.
title String A short title describing the error.
status Number An HTTP status code that maps to the error.
detail String A more detailed description of the error.
