when I told restart testnet I mean restart project because I thought that did not work for some time.
For me still doesn't work as a web page.
but today I added new  API connection  wss://testnet.bitshares.eu/ws to my wallet and now works fine i that way.

@all witness nodes on the *TESTNET*: please add the following checkpoint to your config.ini:

Code: [Select]
checkpoint = [6188623,005e6e4f7f47ace64ff6f5c83ebddb68ae14f235]

I messed with the testnet too much and kicked out all the other witnesses. My fault, shouldn't happen again.
Regards!

@everyone: Please note that there was a hard fork on the testnet recently as we updated the code base to be closer to bitshares code base (thanks [member=94]pc[/member] for the assistance).
If you want to be a block producer, please update from master branch (including submodules) and rebuild your node, thanks!

Please send some TEST to "crn", I'll set up a witness. Already got some from the faucet.

Witness "crn" is set up (currently syncing).

Please help with setup of active witness on testnet.bitshares.eu
I created a witness, upgraded it, but it does not generate new blocks and is not listed in active witnesses of testnet.

I followed instructions from this article: https://github.com/cryptonomex/graphene/wiki/How-To-become-an-active-witness-in-BitShares-2.0

and managed to pass all steps with upgrading account, creating a witness and voting for it.

import_key dev4bc ...
upgrade_account dev4bc true
create_witness dev4bc "http://izx.io" true
vote_for_witness dev4bc dev4bc true true
get_witness dev4bc

The final result is the following witness data:

locked >>> get_witness dev4bc
get_witness dev4bc
{
  "id": "1.6.47",
  "witness_account": "1.2.3340",
  "last_aslot": 0,
  "signing_key": "TEST7hJfPdJV3mgjnBwnbsGHbC9zWL5rDUUyqSkVQXeK4pZkRhaggB",
  "vote_id": "1:78",
  "total_votes": 465091782,
  "url": "http://izx.io",
  "total_missed": 0,
  "last_confirmed_block_num": 0
}



after that i started a witness node with the configured pub/private key and got

2497960ms th_a       witness.cpp:88                plugin_initialize    ] witness plugin:  plugin_initialize() begin
2497961ms th_a       witness.cpp:99                plugin_initialize    ] Public Key: TEST652WPZ6hm3n8X8xseUcQscDnnin8UUsHCxNHMgbgT28V18tYp2
2497961ms th_a       witness.cpp:117               plugin_initialize    ] witness plugin:  plugin_initialize() end
2497961ms th_a       application.cpp:426           startup              ] Replaying blockchain due to: unclean shutdown detected
2497961ms th_a       application.cpp:315           operator()           ] Initializing database...

All looks correctly setup, but

However, i do not see my witness dev4bc in the list of active witnesses.

Any help i will greatly appreciate!

You must get voted in before you can sign blocks.

You voted for yourself with your stake which is correct but you simply don't have enough votes. I started voting for your witness.

Thank you! Now i got some more votes:

unlocked >>> get_witness dev4bc
get_witness dev4bc
{
  "id": "1.6.47",
  "witness_account": "1.2.3340",
  "last_aslot": 0,
  "signing_key": "TEST7hJfPdJV3mgjnBwnbsGHbC9zWL5rDUUyqSkVQXeK4pZkRhaggB",
  "vote_id": "1:78",
  "total_votes": "97996139400",
  "url": "http://izx.io",
  "total_missed": 0,
  "last_confirmed_block_num": 0
}

Will wait till somebody else will vote.

I have one other question related to test node setup:
when i tried started it, it failed due to out-of-memory before i set up by recommendations:

# Account ID to track history for (may specify multiple times)
track-account = "1.2.3340"

# Keep only those operations in memory that are related to account history tracking
partial-operations = true

# Maximum number of operations per account will be kept in memory
max-ops-per-account = 1

Only after that changes the node finally synced ad started.

I did not find any explanation how the settings related to account history affect the functionality of the node.
Does it affect witness? block generation? API operations?

Why in the hell the node should keep so much data _in memory_ by default?

These settings don't affect block generation. But you only query the account history for those accounts that you track, so some API operations are affected.

Why in the hell the node should keep so much data _in memory_ by default?

For speed, mostly.
