From 7 to 119 blocks on the mempool in a matter of few minutes

I thought my umbrel was hanging, Mempool showed a suden drop of transactions when it went back up the mempool had a backlog of 119 blocks.

Anyone know what could be going on?

I dont know what is your issue, but I see now mempool is overflown ( 22-may, 330MB to machine limit 300MB). Transaction fee more than 20sat/VByte
This a question to smart people:
This can mean lots of user small transactions waiting forever to reach miners mempool.
If users here complaint much of long wait to close channels, this can make closing time much worst?

Another question, raising local umbrel mempool to 400 MB is a good idea? Help keeping people’s Tx alive?

It seems there is some exchange consolidating UTXOs, i.e. into bc1qm34lsc65zpw79lxes69zkqmk6ee3ewf0j77s3h


Not sure if anything can be done. My umbrel is at 92% CPU culprit seems to be the electrs process

I did that once, and is messing up. I also raise it to 500MB and didn’t help at all.
I just remove it from my node.I use BTC RPC app. Much better.
