TurtleCoind High-Availability Daemon Wrapper

This project is designed to wrap the TurtleCoind daemon on a *nix system and monitor it for hangups, locks, fork, or other events that cause the daemon to stop responding to requests in an accurate manner.

The sample service.js includes how to automatically restart the daemon if it hangs, locks, or otherwise stops responding.

Dependencies

Easy Start

You must copy TurtleCoind into the turtlecoind-ha folder for the easy start process to occur.

git clone https://github.com/turtlecoin/turtlecoind-ha.git
cd turtlecoind-ha
cp <TurtleCoind> .
sudo npm install & node service.js

It is highly recommended that you use checkpoints when starting fresh or you'll need to wait a while for the sync to occur.

Keep it Running

I'm a big fan of PM2 so if you don't have it installed, the setup is quite simple.

npm install -g pm2

pm2 startup
pm2 install pm2-logrotate

pm2 start service.js --name turtlecoind
pm2 save

Initialization

Practically all TurtleCoind command line arguments are exposed in the constructor method. Simply include them in your list of options to get activate or use them. Default values are defined below.

var daemon = new TurtleCoind({
  // These are our TurtleCoind-ha options
  pollingInterval: 10000, // How often to check the daemon in milliseconds
  maxPollingFailures: 3, // How many polling intervals can fail before we emit a down event?
  checkHeight: true, // Check the daemon block height against known trusted nodes
  maxDeviance: 5, // What is the maximum difference between our block height and the network height that we're willing to accept?
  clearP2pOnStart: true, // Will automatically delete the p2pstate.bin file on start if set to true
  clearDBLockFile: true, // Will automatically delete the DB LOCK file on start if set to true
  timeout: 2000, // How long to wait for RPC responses in milliseconds
  enableWebSocket: true, // Enables a socket.io websocket server on the rpcBindPort + 1
  webSocketPassword: false, // Set this to a password to use for the privileged socket events.

  // These are the standard TurtleCoind options
  path: './TurtleCoind', // Where can I find TurtleCoind?
  dataDir: '~/.TurtleCoin', // Where do you store your blockchain?
  testnet: false, // Use the testnet?
  enableCors: false, // Enable CORS support for the domain in this value
  enableBlockExplorer: true, // Enable the block explorer
  loadCheckpoints: false, // If set to a path to a file, will supply that file to the daemon if it exists.
  rpcBindIp: '0.0.0.0', // What IP to bind the RPC server to
  rpcBindPort: 11898, // What Port to bind the RPC server to
  p2pBindIp: '0.0.0.0', // What IP to bind the P2P network to

Event - data

Feeds back the stdout of the daemon process on a line by line basis. You can use this to monitor the progress of the application or hook and do your own development.

daemon.on('data', (data) => {
  // do something
})

Event - desync

This event is emitted when the daemon has lost synchronization with the TurtleCoin network

daemon.on('descync', (daemonHeight, networkHeight, deviance) => {
  // do something
})

Event - down

This event is emitted when the daemon is not responding to RPC requests or local console checks. We believe at that point that the daemon is hung.

daemon.on('down', () => {
  // do something
})

Event - error

This event is emitted when the daemon or our service encounters an error.

daemon.on('error', (err) => {
  // do something
})

Event - info

This event is emitted when the daemon or our service has something to tell you but its not that important.

daemon.on('info', (info) => {
  // do something
})

Event - ready

This event is emitted when the daemon is synchronized with the TurtleCoin network and is passing all the checks we have for it. It returns the equivalent of a /getinfo call to the RPC server with a few minor additions.

daemon.on('ready', (info) => {
  // do something
})

  "tx_pool_size": 0,
  "version": "0.5.0",
  "white_peerlist_size": 602
}

Event - start

This event is emitted when the daemon starts. The callback contains the command line arguments supplied to TurtleCoind.

daemon.on('start', (executablePath, args) => {
  // do something
})

Event - started

This event is emitted when the daemon is now accepting P2P connections.

daemon.on('started', () => {
  // do something
})

Event - stopped

This event is emitted when the daemon is stopped for whatever reason.

daemon.on('stopped', () => {
  // do something
})

Event - synced

This event is emitted when the daemon has synchronized with the TurtleCoin network.

daemon.on('synced', () => {
  // do something
})

Event - syncing

This event is emitted when the daemon is syncing. It gives the current status of the sync.

daemon.on('syncing', (height, networkHeight, percent) => {
  // do something
})

Event - topblock

This event is emitted when the daemon detects a new top block on the network. It will be the next block found.

daemon.on('topblock', (height) => {
  // do something
})

TurtleCoind RPC API Interface

As we can actually run this wrapper inside another nodeJS project, we expose all of the TurtleCoind RPC API commands via the daemon.api property. Each of the below methods are Javascript Promises. For safety sake, always handle your promise catches as we do use them properly.

Methods noted having options have parameters that may be optional or required as documented.

daemon.api.getBlocks(options)

Returns information on the last 30 blocks before height (inclusive).

options.height The height of the blockchain to start at - required

WebSocket Connections

A WebSocket socket.io server is initialized if enableWebSocket is true in the initialization of the module. The server is created on the rpcBindPort specified + 1.

Some events require that the socket is authenticated via a auth event.

If the nonce column is Yes you may send a nonce in the payload in addition to the options defined.
