I just installed and started up the daemon on windows and im getting the error:

19192   INFO    global  contrib/epee/src/mlog.cpp:145   New log categories: *:WARNING,net:FATAL,net.p2p:FATAL,net.cn:FATAL,global:INFO,verify:FATAL,stacktrace:INFO

  • What makes you think it is an error ? Many people somehow think it is, but the wording is clear it isn't. Is is just seeing a word without reading the context ? Something else ?

  • Says warning and fatal, but yes thats correct as we don't know what its referring to which is why I thought it was an error. Aug 31, 2017 at 12:06

That's not an error. Looks normal to me :) The first line is starting with INFO, and it's just telling you which kind of events will get logged.

Also, I suggest creating a shortcut to monerod.exe, and adding --block-sync-size 10 to it, as below. Seems to be a cure-all for slow sync.

  • Makes you download the blockchain in smaller chunks (of 10 blocks) instead of default 200.
