So I’ve registered my test pool a couple days back (ticker: ADAKT), it can be seen here:
I’ve built it following the official stake pool course and some bits from SafeStak, CoinCashew and this very forum. I’m not using CNTools.
I’ve got several concerns which I hope someone could help me with:
#1 : My pool is not listed on the testnet topology:
This command returns nothing:
curl -s https://explorer.cardano-testnet.iohkdev.io/relays/topology.json | grep 126.96.36.199
Is this to be expected?
#2 : Processed TX / Mempool TX are not increasing as they should:
Actually, when checking prometheus metrics on the BP node, I see that txsProcessedNum, txsInMempool and mempoolBytes are not even available!
Checking on the Relay node shows those metrics do exist but txsProcessedNum equals 1, txsInMempool and mempoolBytes are 0.
#3 : Peering:
Even on the testnet, I see people having large relay peering (10s of connections to other relays on the network).
Could this be the issue for issues #1 & #2?
Is this achieved with the famous topologyUpdater script? guild-operators/topologyUpdater.sh at alpha · cardano-community/guild-operators · GitHub
I thought this script was only relevant for mainnet.
My relay topology:
I would really appreciate some help on this as I’m running in circles for a while now
