Core / Relay Network Topology

Hi, when you have multiple relay nodes, what does the topology look like? Does everyone go for a star network, whereby all relays are connected to the block producer?

hello mate,

BP needs communication with all your relays.
all relays needs communication with the BP and the rest of the Cardano Network.
your relays dont need peer connection with each other.

i will try to find a graphic to send it to you.
please let me know if that helps you.

Best regards,

if you notice on this graphic, there is few BP with 2 Relays,
those 2 Relays are not connected together, but only with the rest of the Network.

that works with the topology.json file on your relays.
for better performance and results, you need to run every hour the
ONLY on relays.
