Calibration is the primary live testing network. It is used to evaluate Filecoin at meaningful scale via testing, benchmarking, and optimizations. It is recommended for most prospective miners and app developers.
Filecoin nodes can be deployed to sync Filecoin calibration test network simply by deploying a Filecoin node manifest:
Apply this manifest using kubectl:
Kotal will create a single filecoin node that syncs calibration Filecoin network, you can verify by getting pods in the default namepsace by:
you will get output similar to this
Check the logs of
You will get calibration sync logs.
Let's send an API call to
calibration-node, but first lets forward
hocalhost:1234 calls to
In another terminal window, send
Filecoin.ChainHead API call
lotus node token can be found inside calibration-node pod in
Can be retrieved by
You'll get a result similar to this
Finally you can delete the filecoin node and all its resources by
and kubernetes garbage collector will delete all resources created by the node controller.
