Misc Configuration


Below are some best practices that should be followed while implementing your Nano Node.

Node Configuration


To enable GPU acceleration for PoW, set "opencl_enable" to "true". It is unnecessary to modify any other OpenCL parameters (see Node Configuration).

Multiple Node Setups

Never use the same seed on multiple running rai_node instances at the same time.

  • Multiple rai_nodes using the same seed can result in network race conditions that degrade performance for your personal accounts.
  • In addition, Publishing transactions from two nodes with the same account at the same time may cause an account fork which requires a slower representative voting process.
  • Similarly, if you are running a representative account on multiple nodes, they may publish conflicting votes, causing your representative to be ignored by the network.
  • Performance degradation in enterprise environments may be significant.
