I'm currently installing Mist/Ethereum Wallet from the pre-built binaries.
Having the run the
./Ethereum-wallet executable, it's now part-way through syncing the blockchain. It seems to be taking quite a while, so I'm assuming it's a full sync, rather than a fast one. However, I'm unsure about this and want to find out for certain.
It doesn't appear to be possible to
geth attach to the node that the Wallet has started in the background, so I have no visibility into what's going on, and can't use the console logs as a way to determine which type of sync is happening. [See "Console message difference between --fast and normal syncing", here.]
So my question is as follows:
In the absence of console logs, is there a way to tell from the
chaindata/ itself whether fast or full sync is occurring?
