For KYVE Protocol Validators
This section includes all commands used by KYVE Protocol Validators to participate in state-sync data pools.
This command is essential for running as a protocol node in a state-sync pool since this will serve the snapshots to the protocol node. Basically, KSYNC will sync the blocks with block-sync and waits for the ABCI app to create the snapshots, once created they are exposed over a REST API server which the protocol node can then query.
To start with default settings serve the snapshots with:
ksync serve-snapshots --binary="/path/to/<binaryd>" --home="/path/to/.<home>" --snapshot-pool-id=<pool-id> --block-pool-id=<pool-id>
Once you see that KSYNC is syncing blocks you can open
https://localhost:7878/list_snapshots. In the beginning it should
return an empty array, but after the first snapshot height is reached (check the interval in the data pool settings) you
should see a first snapshot object in the response.
Changing snapshot api server port
You can change the snapshot api server port with the flag
Enabling metrics server and manage port
You can enable a metrics server running by default on
http://localhost:8080/metrics by add the flag
Furthermore, can you change the port of the metrics server by adding the flag
By default, pruning is enabled. That means that all blocks, states and snapshots prior to the snapshot pool height
are automatically, deleted, saving a lot of disk space. If you want to disable it add the flag
