I wish miners evaluated the performance of implementations under high volume stress tests. Seems best way to know what works best and what can scale best.
There’s not enough real live empirical data evaluation of hardware and software with high volume of txns. Too much theoretical arguments on limitations

No, op_return increases the price of the transactions and doesn't prove anything IMO, anybody can send transactions with the same message, what does it prove?

Thank you! Yes, we are analysing everything, to improve the system.

Hitting the network from all over the world. Great work Esthon! Will TheWildCard be doing analysis of bottlenecks, comparison of implementations, how many nodes dropped out, etc?

What I know is that at this time I was sending almost 1.6 million transactions... Maybe I have some in these blocks!
Let's see what kind of "argument" they will come up with now, that 128 MB or bigger are not needed yet. I can remember those small blocker comments quite good from last year.

It was Faketoshi creating transactions and mining them in his
SV pool.
Is there a stress test happening or something?
No, the bottlenecks were mitigated to some degree, but not fixed. See the mempool divergences:,24h

Does this mean the bottlenecks have been fixed?

Way to go Tom!

Thanks! Still a few small issues after blocks are found, but that is mostly due to the node. How is the stress test next week going to be bigger than this?!

txstreet performed well this time.
Great work Tom...

looks like it'll be a very busy street next week :)

Remember to take screenshot next time!
32mb block just found! Saw all 32 buses leave on TxStreet :D
Congratulations on successfully breaking a new record, and doing so consistently.

We want to have dedicated connection to external nodes also, I will contact you in priv to get the information to connect to your node, this will be very good. Thank you very much!

This grid was composed of 36 geographically dispersed nodes exclusively to send the txs, that was sent by each one randomically. All interconnected with each other and externally.

As I could solve and fix the the bugs that caused the previous errors I gave up (at least for now) to work on this. But in the today stress test the tx was sent by a grid of nodes.

As I was having a lot of errors in sending tx in the before tests I was working in a way to send each tx twice trough two nodes. But unfortunately I couldn't finalize this.

Great job esthon. We made a 32 MB block. Incredible.
Indeed I sent it directly to txBlaster2, it will be executed at once!
Hey, sending 13,000,000 sats from txBlasterCollect to the txBlaster3 to be sent to the test right now!
Is this November 10st test at 12 UTC happening for sure?
