The getTrans tool retrieves transactions from the running Ethereum node (using the --raw option) or from QBlocks (the default). You may provide a transaction hash, a blockNumber.transactionID pair, or a blockHash.transactionID pair (or any combination) to specify the transaction(s).


Usage: getTrans [-r|-n|-v|-h] <transID> [transID...]
Purpose: Retrieve an Ethereum transaction from the local cache or a running node.

Short Cut Option Description
trans_list a space-separated list of one or more transaction identifiers (tx_hash, bn.txID, blk_hash.txID)
-r --raw retrieve raw transaction directly from the running node
-n --nTraces report on how many traces the transaction generated and deepest trace
-v --verbose set verbose level. Either -v, --verbose or -v:n where 'n' is level
-h --help display this help screen


  • trans_list is one or more space-separated identifiers which may be either a transaction hash, a blockNumber.transactionID pair, or a blockHash.transactionID pair, or any combination.
  • This tool checks for valid input syntax, but does not check that the transaction requested exists.
  • This tool retrieves information from the local node or the ${FALLBACK} node, if configured (see documentation).
  • If the queried node does not store historical state, the results may be undefined.

See Also: This command-line tool implements these RPC interfaces: eth_getTransactionByHash, eth_getTransactionByBlockNumberAndIndex, eth_getTransactionByBlockHashAndIndex.

Other Options

All QBlocks command-line tools support the following commands (although in some case, they have no meaning):

Command     |     Description
--version   |   display the current version of the tool
--nocolor   |   turn off colored display
--wei       |   specify value in wei (the default)
--ether     |   specify value in ether
--dollars   |   specify value in US dollars
--file:fn   |   specify multiple sets of command line options in a file.

For the --file:fn option, place a series of valid command lines in a file and use the above options. In some cases, this option may significantly improve performance. A semi-colon at the start of a line makes that line a comment.
