๐Ÿš€ Cardano-Node Topology generator

The building of the network topology will be automated in 2-4 weeks after the launch of the main-net.
Till that time, there is a handy way how to build the topology:

https://a.adapools.org/topology
https://a.adapools.org/topology?geo=us&limit=20

GEO is an optional parameter. GEOIP is used for searching among neighbors.
LIMIT determines the number of results.

OR you can get topology by continent with:
https://a.adapools.org/topology?continent=eu (eu,as,na,oc,sa)

To configure the output please change parameters in the URL.

The tool searches functional relay nodes that are present in the blockchain.

The point is, that all nodes with the relay nodes that are present in the blockchain, will be connected sooner or later when the topology is used. It is not necessary to send anything to somewhere, fill in a form, or set up anything.

Nice work!
However only talking to nodes in your own country or continent isnโ€™t ideal. We want new blocks to disperse across the globe asap.
It would be better you specify your continent and most peers where from that continent (say 75%) , but there rest where randomly picked from the rest of the world.

The generated format is wrong, port is an Int not a string.
{
โ€œpoolโ€: โ€œ[BFSA] BFSAโ€,
โ€œaddrโ€: โ€œ176.58.113.142โ€,
โ€œportโ€: โ€œ7881โ€,
โ€œvalencyโ€: 1
},
Should be
{
โ€œpoolโ€: โ€œ[BFSA] BFSAโ€,
โ€œaddrโ€: โ€œ176.58.113.142โ€,
โ€œportโ€: 7881,
โ€œvalencyโ€: 1
},

Thank you! F5 please :slight_smile:

If user filter by geo/continent, is marked type=regular + there is random 5 relays from another places as type=additional-world-relay.
Ofc all relays are shuffled
