Bitcoin commandline options
Chad Michael Libby 6 2. What is the command line syntax? I want to dump private key but no matter what I try, it continues to say incorrect I have tried the following options both lower and upper case -d -di Check status of daemon?
I have started bitcoind on my linux box. How can I ask it what its status is? I assume it is downloading the blockchain and will continue to do so for hours or days. How can I find out where it is in Tyler Durden 2 How to enable replace-by-fee via command-line in bitcoin-core? Alright, so I'm convinced replace-by-fee is a good thing.
I've read it's opt-in, so how can I enable it in my bitcoin-core wallet? I don't find any flag to pass it when launching it. I want all my Bitcoin-qt console on cmd Is there a way to interact with Bitcoin-qt from Windows cmd and run commands like if I'm running them from Bitcoin-qt console?
In this release, transaction selection is unaffected by this distinction as BIP activation is not supported on mainnet in this release, see above , but in future releases and after BIP activation, these calculations would be expected to differ. For optimal runtime performance, miners using this release should specify -blockmaxweight on the command line, and not specify -blockmaxsize. Additionally or only specifying -blockmaxsize , or relying on default settings for both, may result in performance degradation, as the logic to support -blockmaxsize performs additional computation to ensure that constraint is met.
Note that for mainnet, in this release, the equivalent parameter for -blockmaxweight would be four times the desired -blockmaxsize. See [BIP ] https: In the future, the -blockmaxsize option may be removed, as block creation is no longer optimized for this metric.
Feedback is requested on whether to deprecate or keep this command line option in future releases. In earlier versions, reindexing did validation while reading through the block files on disk.
These two have now been split up, so that all blocks are known before validation starts. This was necessary to make certain optimizations that are available during normal synchronizations also available during reindexing. It is possible to only redo validation now, without rebuilding the block index, using the command line option -reindex-chainstate in addition to -reindex which does both.
This new option is useful when the blocks on disk are assumed to be fine, but the chainstate is still corrupted. It is also useful for benchmarks. As CPU mining has been useless for a long time, the internal miner has been removed in this release, and replaced with a simpler implementation for the test framework. The overall result of this is that setgenerate RPC call has been removed, as well as the -gen and -genproclimit command-line options.
For testing, the generate call can still be used to mine a block, and a new RPC call generatetoaddress has been added to mine to a specific address. This works with wallet disabled. The former implementation of the bytespersigop filter accidentally broke bare multisig which is meant to be controlled by the permitbaremultisig option , since the consensus protocol always counts these older transaction forms as 20 sigops for backwards compatibility.
Simply fixing this bug by counting more accurately would have reintroduced a vulnerability. It has therefore been replaced with a new implementation that rather than filter such transactions, instead treats them for fee purposes only as if they were in fact the size of a transaction actually using all 20 sigops. Upon receiving a feefilter message from a peer, a node will not send invs for any transactions which do not meet the filter feerate. The transaction relay mechanism used to relay one quarter of all transactions instantly, while queueing up the rest and sending them out in batch.
As this resulted in chains of dependent transactions being reordered, it systematically hurt transaction relay. This significantly reduces orphan transactions. To compensate for the removal of instant relay, the frequency of batch sending was doubled for outgoing peers.
The maximum size of orphan transactions that are kept in memory until their ancestors arrive has been raised in PR from to bytes. They are now also removed from memory when they are included in a block, conflict with a block, and time out after 20 minutes.
We respond at most once to a getaddr request during the lifetime of a connection since PR Connections to peers who have recently been the first one to give us a valid new block or transaction are protected from disconnections since PR RPC calls have been added to output detailed statistics for individual mempool entries, as well as to calculate the in-mempool ancestors or descendants of a transaction: There was a divergence between bit and bit platforms, and the txids were missing in the hashed data.
This has been fixed, but this means that the output will be different than from previous versions. This is no longer the case. This also affects the GUI debug console. The sorting of the output of the getrawmempool output has changed. New options were added to fundrawtransaction: Detailed release notes follow. This overview includes changes that affect behavior, not code moves, refactors and string updates. For convenience in locating the code changes and accompanying discussion, both the pull request and git merge commit are mentioned.
As well as everyone that helped translating on Transifex.
