Starting around Feb 15, started seeing huge spike in tx_bad_seq on my kelp server. I was using the public Horizon. You can see from the lines below the massive increase.

Presumably this is due to the fully ledgers and/or timeouts on response? On a timed out response from Horizon, kelp probably assumes that the sequence number is unchanged, when presumably that's unknown since you never got a response and this is just a bug in kelp to not get the sequence number after a gateway timeout (cloudflare in front of Horizon). It doesn't recognize the > in the cloudflare response... probably should re-load txn number at that point.

Seq number issues can come from a node that's lagging behind, horizon lagging behind core. I was connected to the public horizon server.

Perhaps it was the cloudflare timeout messages.

here are the seq errors:
