What you can expect this week

We will work with the dining philosopher's and deadlock example from the Rholang tutorial.  We are attempting to reproduce 

Jira Legacy
serverSystem JIRA

Steps for testing

  • Someone will deploy this code as a contract and propose a block
    • If this reproduces the bug, testers are to capture the log output
      • To capture logs from Docker 

        Code Block
        docker logs <container name>

      • To capture logs from Linux copy the output from STD out
    • Either add logs to pastebin or save as a file
    • Add logs (pastebin link or file attachment) to RHOL-525

We will do this multiple times to attempt to reproduce the bug.

Configure your network

See RNode supported network configuration for information on how to configure your network to connect to other nodes.

Installation packages

Please install RNode prior to the start of the testing session. We will be using a special version of RNode for this test.

Note - At this time RNode does not run successfully in Docker on MacOSX. This is because you must run Docker with the host networking option.  By default, Docker runs in network bridge mode.  To use the host networking option, you must include the 'network=host' option  in your Docker run command. This flag does not work on MacOSX.

Code Block
docker pull rchain/rnode:testing

Installation and running instructions

Please see User guide for running RNode for installation and running instructions.
