In a private blockchain with Parity, what is the correct way to set the Block Gas Limit? When I go to "Transfer" and then specify an address in the "recipient" field, a red bar pops up that says:
the transaction execution will exceed the block gas limit
I don't know why the block gas limit is not the default! I am using my own chain spec file, but I copied these values from https://github.com/paritytech/parity/blob/master/ethcore/res/ethereum/foundation.json:
The limit that the error is talking about appears to be 5000 (0x1388) because I get the error until I manually lower the gas (from 21000 default in the field) to 4999. But why is the limit set to 5000? Those two parameters don't have anything to do with the block gas limit, do they?
(And anyway, when I do lower the gas limit to anything below 5000, I I get this problem: Parity genesis file - How to set "minimal cost of the transaction" a.k.a. "Gtransaction" value?)
Really I just don't understand what I did to alter the Block Gas Limit. It should default to 21000, right? How did I manage to alter that?
gasLimitin genesis block. You can define gasLimit in genesis block and this will be adjust your block gas limit.
