I'm using Ropsten (revival) testnet with geth. I can see that all blocks are the same as https://ropsten.etherscan.io/ But I cannot see the pending transactions.

From https://ropsten.etherscan.io/txsPending there are about 16 pending transactions but when I do

> eth.pendingTransactions

with geth, I get and empty list: []

How can I get the list of pending transactions ?


eth.pendingTransactions only lists the transactions that you have issued. If you want to look at pending transactions for the whole network, check out txpool

Specifically, txpool.inspect gives you a nice shorthand view. From there you can use eth.getTransaction(txid) for any individual transaction that you want to know more about.
