Testing a connection with PingPong protocol
To check if two nodes are connected and to see the round trip time for message exchange between them, get the overlay address from one node, for example local node 2:
Make sure that Debug API is enabled and address configured as in examples above.
And use that address in the Debug API call on another node, for example, local node 1:
To process protocol buffer files and generate the Go code from it two tools are needed:
protobuf can be used to automate
protoc-gen-gogofaster installation and code generation:
Developers can gain an additional level of insight into the node by enabling
tracing. To make use of Tracing, we advice to make use of jaeger.
Set up tracing by:
docker run -p 6831:6831/udp -p 16686:16686 jaegertracing/all-in-one:latest
start locally two bee nodes (different data dirs and ports) and connect them (see "Start a test network" in the advanced section) with
--tracingflag provided for both nodes
Make a call to the PingPong API on one of the two nodes (
curl -XPOST localhost:1735/pingpong/<overlay address other node>).
Validate tracing in the web interface (
