I used to refer management APIs and Geth Wiki Page to check geth commands, their parameters, options and everything. But this link seems not updated.

I can see multiple commands in geth console, which are not there in wikki page, like

  • eth.resend
  • personal.openWallet
  • eth.namereg
  • personal.listWallets etc.

Where can I find documentaion of same?

if you have geth installed on your machine please type geth --help in your terminal command and you should receive the following commands from this repo.


They are all the go-ethereum node commands available.

Unless you want to refer to the web3 commands and if so please see https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JavaScript-API

  • geth -h gives geth commands usually the flags used with geth. I can not any commands I asked in question with this and same for Javascript-APIs Commented Jul 9, 2018 at 11:02
  • That's because the commands you're trying to access to do exists or work.

  • for example you're trying personal.openWallet which is "personal.unlockAccount" and personal.listWallets is "eth.accounts"

  • NO. Not same. They may produce similar output but are not same. If they are same, why 2 commands? And even if they are same, where I can see that, any documentation? on what url means? What are params of resendTransaction? etc etc etc Commented Jul 9, 2018 at 14:19
