Agate Blockchain Build Status

In the master branch there is a code with functions that is under development. The latest release for each network can be found in the Releases section, you can switch to the corresponding tag and build the application.

How to configure Agate node


Please read repo wiki article.

Compiling Packages from source

It is only possible to create deb and fat jar packages.

Install SBT (Scala Build Tool)

For Ubuntu/Debian:

echo "deb /" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sbt.list
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv 2EE0EA64E40A89B84B2DF73499E82A75642AC823
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sbt

You can install sbt on Mac OS X using Homebrew.

Create Package

Clone this repo and execute

sbt packageAll

.deb and .jar packages will be in /package folder. To build testnet packages use

sbt -Dnetwork=testnet packageAll

Running Tests

sbt test


If you prefer to work with SBT in the interactive mode, open it with settings:

SBT_OPTS="${SBT_OPTS} -Xms512M -Xmx1536M -Xss1M -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled" sbt

For Java9 it should be:

SBT_OPTS="${SBT_OPTS} -Xms512M -Xmx1536M -Xss1M -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled --add-modules=java.xml.bind --add-exports java.base/jdk.internal.ref=ALL-UNNAMED" sbt

to solve the Metaspace error problem.

Running Integration Tests


  • Make sure you have Docker and SBT.
  • sbt it/test

Customizing Tests

By default, it/test will do the following:

  • Build a container image with the fat jar and a template.conf. The newly-built image will be registered with the local Docker daemon. This image is built with sbt-docker plugin.
  • Run the test suites from src/it/scala, passing docker image ID via docker.imageId system property.


By default all logs are written to the STDOUT. If you want to write logs, for example, to JSON files, you should define your own logging configuration and specify a path to it in conf/application.ini:



Integration tests run in a forked JVM. To debug test suite code launched by SBT, you will need to add remote debug options to javaOptions in IntegrationTest configuration:

javaOptions in IntegrationTest += "-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=5005"

Debugging a node inside a container is a little more complicated: you will need to modify the Agate_OPTS environment variable before starting a container.

Running Tests from IDE

You can run integration test suites from your preferred IDE. The only requirement is to have Docker image pre-built and have docker.imageId system property defined for the run configuration. The easiest way to build an image is to issue sbt docker command. You'll find the image ID in the SBT output:

[info] Step 5/5 : ENTRYPOINT /opt/Agate/
[info]  ---> Using cache
[info]  ---> e243fa08d496
[info] Successfully built e243fa08d496
[info] Tagging image e243fa08d496 with name: com.wavesplatform/root
[success] Total time: 4 s, completed Mar 22, 2017 12:36:34 PM

In this example, e243fa08d496 is the image ID you need. Make sure to re-build the image whenever the node code (not the tests) is changed. If you run the tests from SBT, there's no need to manually rebuild the image, SBT will handle this automatically.

Collecting performance metrics

Note: all required tools will be installed though Docker for simplicity.

  1. Install Graphite, a service for collecting metrics.

  2. Install Grafana for beautiful graphs.

  3. By default all metrics are disabled. So specify Kamon settings through Java Properties and run the node with a desired config. For example, we ran Graphite locally and it accepts StatsD information on the 9999 port:

    SBT_OPTS="${SBT_OPTS} -Xms512M -Xmx1536M -Xss1M -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled \ \ \
    -Dkamon.statsd.hostname=localhost \
    -Dkamon.statsd.port=9999" sbt Agate-testnet.conf


    • enables custom metrics;
    • enables metrics of CPU, Memory and others;
    • See application.conf for more options.
