What I Wanted to Do

I want to listen to the stream.

What Happened Instead

A few days ago, the sequence ID went from ~9m to ~900k.

Reproduction Steps

View the latest sequence ID from the stream (e.g. 994045).


There have been several npm status updates about the replicate stream, but the issues have been marked resolved multiple times without any change to the sequence IDs. Could someone from npm please confirm if the sequence ID being reset is permanent or if it will be restored to its original ~9m value prior to when the issues started?

I am asking the same question. As a consumer of (from, what should I do? Reset my ‘update_seq’ to the current value or wait until you restore the original value?
