Hi,

I am running a python server and node client using GRPC.

On my Node end I am getting an error

Error: 14 UNAVAILABLE: Connection dropped at Object.callErrorFromStatus (/home/node/app/node_modules/@grpc/grpc-js/src/call.ts:81:24) at Object.onReceiveStatus (/home/node/app/node_modules/@grpc/grpc-js/src/client.ts:334:36) at Object.onReceiveStatus (/home/node/app/node_modules/@grpc/grpc-js/src/client-interceptors.ts:426:34) at Object.onReceiveStatus (/home/node/app/node_modules/@grpc/grpc-js/src/client-interceptors.ts:389:48) at /home/node/app/node_modules/@grpc/grpc-js/src/call-stream.ts:276:24 at processTicksAndRejections (internal/process/task_queues.js:79:11)

How can I figure out what is dropping the connection? Is it client or server side that is dropping the connection?

I see the source of this error message here. But not sure what in fact is triggering it?

My node client is @grpc/grp...@1.3.0.

Regards,
- Octavio

I think your server is running with certificates and client is not supplying the cert chain of server.

From node client, you may need to do like below.


let credentials = grpc.credentials.createSsl(
fs.readFileSync(
'cert-chain-path'),
);

grpcClient = new YourService(`IP:PORT`, credentials);

Mahendra, thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately I am already doing what you are suggesting :/

One thing I did neglect to mention is that the majority of GRPC calls go through! This error, however, occurs sporadically and during higher loads. It occurs once per every ~1000 calls.
