You will get nerpa sync logs.
Let's send an API call to
nerpa-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 nerpa-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.
