How can I check blockchain size outside my client?
« on: October 04, 2014, 04:03:26 pm »
Or: How can I check whether the blockchain has been downloaded completely?
I do that by checking whether my btsx app folder gets bigger but I am sure there is a more elegant way...
I didn't find it here http://www.bitsharesblocks.com/home
Atm my .bitsharesx folder is already 13 GB. Is it really that big?
edit: 18 GB by now...?

Go to the Console page:

Type 'info' and press enter.

You should see something like: "blockchain_head_block_age": "6 seconds old"

If the age is too long, that means your blockchain is out of syn.

If you the above helps, please vote for delegate bitcube.

Cheers!

My .BitsharesX folder is 1.3GB.. Something must be wrong with yours, it's 10x the normal size.

It's possible that for example the automatic backup "wallets/.backups" folder is really big, or something else like that. Take a closer look at the individual folders and let us know. It should not take up so much space.
