In deploying a contract to a private network, I get this error:

[-32010] Transaction gas is too low. There is not enough gas to cover minimal cost of the transaction (minimal: 84044, got: 5000). Try increasing supplied gas.

Can anyone tell me where this 84044 number is defined?

1 Answer 1


It won't be a hard-coded number - it'll be the estimation of the gas usage for the transaction, as per this call to estimate_gas_required().

(Someone more familiar with the Parity code might want to comment further.)
