Which factors impact the transaction accepted timing?

if run a fullnode to accept the tx via http, what should i do to improve the transaction accepted speed? config setting, server location, etc.


Hello @crazybit
To improve transaction acceptance speed for your full node accepting transactions via HTTP, you can consider the following strategies:

1: Hardware and NetworkOptimization:

  • Ensure your server hardware is robust, especially in terms of CPU, RAM, and storage speed.
    *Use a high-speed internet connection to reduce latency.

2 :Optimize Configuration Settings:

  • Increase the maxmempool setting in your Bitcoin node configuration to allow for more unconfirmed transactions to be stored in memory.
  • Adjust the rpcworkqueue setting to allow more threads for transaction processing.
  • Increase the maxuploadtarget setting if you have a high upload bandwidth available.

3 Server Location:

  • Choose a server location close to the geographical area where most of your transactions are originating. This reduces network latency.

4 Use a Load Balancer:

  • Implement a load balancer to distribute incoming HTTP requests across multiple instances of your full node. This can significantly improve transaction processing speed, especially during high traffic periods.

5 Optimize Database Performance:

  • If your node is using a database backend like LevelDB, consider tuning database-related configurations.
  • Use SSD storage instead of HDD for faster read/write operations.

6 Connection Management:
*Adjust the maxconnections setting to allow for more incoming connections, which can help in processing transactions concurrently.

  • Implement connection management strategies to handle and drop idle or misbehaving connections effectively.

7 Regularly Update Software:

  • Keep your Bitcoin node software up-to-date. New versions often come with performance improvements and optimizations.

8 Security Measures:

  • Ensure that your server’s security configurations are robust to prevent DDoS attacks and other security threats that might slow down your node.

9 Monitoring and Diagnostics:

  • Implement monitoring tools to keep an eye on your server’s performance. This can help you identify bottlenecks and optimize configurations accordingly.

Remember that the effectiveness of these strategies can vary based on your specific setup and network conditions. It’s often a good practice to experiment with different configurations and monitor the impact on your node’s performance to find the best settings for your situation.


Good response


bitcoin? i am asking the aptos, is it AI generated answer?


That is Answering you bro, I think you should email the Aptos lab


Crazybit you are welcome to the community APTOS


Hello @crazybit
I know you’re here for the first time so I’d like to say welcome to Aptos community,
You are in level 1 (basic user) you can interact more and post more about Aptos to trust your next level (member).
Regarding your question, you did not specify exactly whether it is general or related to Aptos only.
If it is general, you have received the answer sir .:point_up_2:
