I am having issues with the current version of geth 1.8. Thus, I tried using parity and got a node synced. I want to use web3 and because of familiarly, I want to use parity with the geth console which I did so successfully. However, much to my dismay it appears that familiar objects and functions I had been using with geth liketxpool.content no longer works. Is there a way to get pending tx on the geth console with a parity node?


You can view parity_pendingTransactions and parity_pendingtransactionsstats, these might help.

  • Thanks. I am used to geth and the JavaScript console. But I’m not sure how to interact with parity. If I type what you said into the terminal window where my node is syncing, nothing happens. Is there a guide how to interact with parity? – user32096 May 23 '18 at 16:37
  • on attaching geth console with parity node(which you done already), you will find parity module along with web3,net,eth etc. And under parity module you'll find these functions. – kherwa May 24 '18 at 1:59
  • Sorry could you explain a little further about “finding the parity module”? – user32096 May 24 '18 at 2:01
  • can you see other modules like web3,eth,net etc – kherwa May 24 '18 at 2:03
  • on attached geth console just write parity , if module exists, it will show – kherwa May 24 '18 at 2:05
