Maintaining a Validator Node

A validator node is composed of hardware, an operating system kernel to manage resources, and dockerized services that are constantly syncing your node's state with the rest of the network. Keeping this complex system running requires regular monitoring, periodic maintenance, and occasional repair/troubleshooting.

The following articles provide a practical guide for maintaining your node, though you may face new and unknown issues that aren't covered in this guide. If you encounter an unknown issue or identify a best practice that is missing from this guide, please share it with the community on Slack!
