I started a private network by issuing the command:

geth --datadir="~/datastore/ethereum" --port 30303 --rpc --rpcport 8545 --rpcaddr localhost --networkid 554433 --rpccorsdomain="*" --minerthreads "4" --mine --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3" --maxpeers 0 --nodiscover --unlock=0 --verbosity 4 --gasprice 100 --gpomin 0 --gpomax 0

Then I called a smartcontract. I saw that smartcontract never does anything.

I looked at log information, I always get the message.

) from pool: low tx nonce or out of funds

Could you please give me any advice?

According to my understanding of your error log Your issue is either

  • too low transaction nonce
  • or the sender account has insufficient funds

I see you are setting the gas price to 0, however, I think the geth client still checks if there are funds available.

So you can try two things :

  • check if 0xaf8f853382b3b6db6ab7fa4f7df6f5329976988d has some funds on it, if not put like 1 testnet Ether on it and try again.
  • check the transaction count on that account with web3.eth.getTransactionCount(accountAddress), if the nonce is too low, try to increment it by 1 until it works.
