Recommended Number of Relay nodes on server with main node

Hi All, I am still learning but really buzzed gaining knowledge (all be it SLOWLY).

I have completed my initial install of Cardano-node on a Cloud Server per the tutorials, would like guidance on how many relays to set up along with the main node on that server.

Much appreciate any guidance.

Hi @RShad876,

this is the place for your questions :slight_smile:
2 relays are recommended however 1 relay also works. You should note that when you have 1 relay and it gets offline your BP will not get any data and won’t be able to operate.
You can start with 1 relay and add another one later too.

Good luck!


Most appreciated, thanks much for reply and guidance and good wish’s.
