I have a private blockchain network. When I send a transaction, it goes to pendingtransaction. Once miners complete mining, it stores into the block. This process takes lots of time.

How can I store transaction quickly (within few seconds)?

  1. Can we decrease time interval between blocks so that i don't need to wait?
  2. Can i increase mining speed? Or
  3. Is there another way to solve it?

You can mine new blocks faster by changing the difficulty parameters of your customGenesis.json to a lower value. Lower difficulty for blocks will make it easier to mine new blocks, which in turn will mean shorter times to mine blocks.

See this article, search for CustomGenesis.json for list of fields available
