reth node

Start the node

$ reth node --help
Usage: reth node [OPTIONS]

Options:
      --config <FILE>
          The path to the configuration file to use.

      --chain <CHAIN_OR_PATH>
          The chain this node is running.
          Possible values are either a built-in chain or the path to a chain specification file.

          Built-in chains:
              mainnet, sepolia, goerli, holesky, dev

          [default: mainnet]

      --instance <INSTANCE>
          Add a new instance of a node.

          Configures the ports of the node to avoid conflicts with the defaults. This is useful for running multiple nodes on the same machine.

          Max number of instances is 200. It is chosen in a way so that it's not possible to have port numbers that conflict with each other.

          Changes to the following port numbers: - `DISCOVERY_PORT`: default + `instance` - 1 - `AUTH_PORT`: default + `instance` * 100 - 100 - `HTTP_RPC_PORT`: default - `instance` + 1 - `WS_RPC_PORT`: default + `instance` * 2 - 2

          [default: 1]

      --with-unused-ports
          Sets all ports to unused, allowing the OS to choose random unused ports when sockets are bound.

          Mutually exclusive with `--instance`.

  -h, --help
          Print help (see a summary with '-h')

Metrics:
      --metrics <SOCKET>
          Enable Prometheus metrics.

          The metrics will be served at the given interface and port.

Datadir:
      --datadir <DATA_DIR>
          The path to the data dir for all reth files and subdirectories.

          Defaults to the OS-specific data directory:

          Since `RLPx` protocol version 68, the byte size of a transaction is shared as metadata in a
          transaction announcement (see `RLPx` specs). This allows a node to request a specific size
          response.

          By default, nodes request only 128 KiB worth of transactions, but should a peer request
          more, up to 2 MiB, a node will answer with more than 128 KiB.

          Default is 128 KiB.
