Multi Node

Pre-requisite Readings

Automated Localnet with Ignite CLI

Once you have installed ignite, just run the localnet by using

ignite chain serve 

Detailed instructions can be found in the Ignite CLI documentation

Automated Localnet with Docker

Build & Start

To build start a 4 node testnet run:

make localnet-start

This command creates a 4-node network using the kynnodnode Docker image. The ports for each node are found in this table:

| Node ID | P2P Port | Tendermint RPC Port | REST/ Ethereum JSON-RPC Port | WebSocket Port | |------------------|----------|---------------------|------------------------------|----------------| | kynnonode0 | 26656 | 26657 | 8545 | 8546 | | kynnonode1 | 26659 | 26660 | 8547 | 8548 | | kynnonode2 | 26661 | 26662 | 8549 | 8550 | | kynnonode3 | 26663 | 26664 | 8551 | 8552 |

To update the binary, just rebuild it and restart the nodes

make localnet-start

The command above command will run containers in the background using Docker compose. You will see the network being created:

...
Creating network "kynno_localnet" with driver "bridge"
Creating kynnodnode0 ... done
Creating kynnodnode2 ... done
Creating kynnodnode1 ... done
Creating kynnodnode3 ... done

Stop Localnet

Once you are done, execute:

make localnet-stop

Configuration

The make localnet-start creates files for a 4-node testnet in ./build by calling the kynnod testnet command. This outputs a handful of files in the ./build directory:

tree -L 3 build/

    └── kynnod
        ├── config
        ├── data
        └── kynnod.log

Each ./build/nodeN directory is mounted to the /kynnod directory in each container.

Logging

In order to see the logs of a particular node you can use the following command:

# node 0: daemon logs
docker exec kynnodnode0 tail kynnod.log

# node 0: REST & RPC logs
docker exec kynnodnode0 tail kynnod.log

The logs for the daemon will look like:

::: tip You can disregard the Can't add peer's address to addrbook warning. As long as the blocks are being produced and the app hashes are the same for each node, there should not be any issues. :::

Whereas the logs for the REST & RPC server would look like:

I[2020-07-30|09:39:17.488] Starting application REST service (chain-id: "7305661614933169792")... module=rest-server
I[2020-07-30|09:39:17.488] Starting RPC HTTP server on 127.0.0.1:8545   module=rest-server
...

Follow Logs

You can also watch logs as they are produced via Docker with the --follow (-f) flag, for example:

docker logs -f kynnodnode0

Interact with the Localnet

Ethereum JSON-RPC & Websocket Ports

To interact with the testnet via WebSockets or RPC/API, you will send your request to the corresponding ports:

| EVM JSON-RPC | Eth Websocket | |--------------|---------------| | 8545 | 8546 |

You can send a curl command such as:

curl -X POST --data '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"eth_accounts","params":[],"id":1}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" 192.162.10.1:8545

::: tip The IP address will be the public IP of the docker container. :::

Additional instructions on how to interact with the WebSocket can be found on the events documentation.

Keys & Accounts

To interact with kynnod and start querying state or creating txs, you use the kynnod directory of any given node as your home, for example:

kynnod keys list --home ./build/node0/kynnod

Now that accounts exists, you may create new accounts and send those accounts funds!

::: tip Note: Each node's seed is located at ./build/nodeN/kynnod/key_seed.json and can be restored to the CLI using the kynnod keys add --restore command :::

Special Binaries

If you have multiple binaries with different names, you can specify which one to run with the BINARY environment variable. The path of the binary is relative to the attached volume. For example:

# Run with custom binary
BINARY=kynno make localnet-start
