Wanted to build a graph of all the peers that my geth node is connected to.

Is there any option in geth where I can display all the peers that are in my node's kademlia k-buckets?

If you connect to the geth console you can run

admin.peers

A list like this will be returned

  • these are the peers with which I have an active TCP connection right? I wanted to see all the nodes whom I have sent a kademlia ping message! – pd176 Jul 23 '18 at 6:24
  • yes, but I don't know if you can obtain the list you want. also you have to consider if you trust what the other nodes tell you – Daniel Luca CleanUnicorn Jul 23 '18 at 7:11
