My validator node shows the issue "low connectivity, authority lookup failed for too many validators", what does this mean? And is it dangerous for the safety of the chain?

enter image description here

  • This is a warning letting you know that connectivity to validators is below the desired threshold. The PR for this is here.

  • I see, thanks, and I think the connected=2 means my validator was only connected with 2 other validators, right? But I also see the idle(5 peers) in the below. I used to think that means my validator was connected with 5 other validators, but now here is a connected=2. I was confused, so could you tell me what's the differences between them?

  • connected=2 refers to connected peers who we know are authorities (according to the DHT records they've published). So there may be 5 peers but we do not necessarily know that they are authorities that is why you see Idle (5 peers)
