My Umbrel is FORCE CLOSING channels at an unpredictable rate and for no obvious reason. 1-2 per week… This week alone cost me 5 well established channels.
the channels were force closed, initiator is Local(me)
My node is always on, UPS, Fiber optics and me F5ing like every hour to gaze routing)
Some channels occasionally do go Inactive for up to several hours and come back on no problem, which
might be due to current TOR DDoS attack,(thout its said to have been addressed in the newest Umbrel update)
Still if it’s some channels/nodes being offline that triggered the automatic force closing. I would like to shut this MF automatic thing down and have full control over force closures.
This is a too important thing to have on autopilot IMHO. It cost sweep fees, takes days of time to get the funds back and is overall 150 of 100 on the scale of being annoying both for me and my partners.
I would like to have manual control on force closing.
If there absolutely has to be some automatic closing mechanism somewhere in Umbrel(not sure whybut OK), but make it cooperative ffs
Anyone can explain why this happens please and how to stop this behaviour? There might be some .conf of any script I can mess with?
