Hi! I wrote myself a little cheatsheet to calculate everything that has to to with the key evolving signature. Can someone please review this and tell me if everything is correct?
Current KES Period = Current Tip / slotsPerKESPeriod (=129600)
Current Tip: cardano-cli shelley query tip –mainnet = e.g. 6710594
slotsPerKESPeriod: cat mainnet-shelley-genesis.json | grep KESPeriod
(=129600sec = 2160min = 36h = one KES Period)
maxKESEvolutions: cat mainnet-shelley-genesis.json | grep maxKESEvolutions (= 62)
(means KES valid for 62 x 36h = 93 days)
Days left til node.cert renew:
- Current KES Period = Current Tip / slotsPerKESPeriod = e.g. 6710594 / 129600 = 51
- KES Periods left = 62 – Current KES Period = 62 – 51 = 11 KES Periods left till renew
- 11 KES Periods equals 11 x 36h = 396h = 16,5 days
When these 16,5 days are over, does the KES Period start from 0 again? If i renew my node.cert today, what does this mean?
