NOTE: I've found a bunch of answers concerning
geth client, but I'm interested specifically in
parity. I have the following private network spec:
- clients: Parity v1.9.2-beta
- consensus: aura
I've split the main question into the smaller chunks:
- I treat
bootnodeas a node which should always be online to provide your node with a list of other peers. Your node has either a hardcoded bootnodes list (for public networks such as mainnet, kovan, ropsten, etc) or the list is provided to a parity executable using startup params or via *.toml config file. Is this definition correct?
auravalidator at the same time?
- Are any config options to explicitly tell parity to run this node as a bootnode or any node could be run as a bootnode?
- Does bootnode share blocks with other peers?
