stellar-core can be controlled via the following commands.
$ stellar-core -c info
$ stellar-core --convertid SDQVDISRYN2JXBS7ICL7QJAEKB3HWBJFP2QECXG7GZICAHBK4UNJCWK2

base64). The private signing key is read from standard input, unless FILE is “-” in which case the transaction envelope is read from standard input and the signing key is read from
/dev/tty. In either event, if the signing key appears to be coming from a terminal, stellar-core disables echo. Note that if you do not have a STELLAR_NETWORK_ID environment variable, then before this argument you must specify the --netid option.

--all-versions: run with all possible protocol versions
--version <N>: run tests for protocol version N, can be specified multiple times (default latest)
--base-instance <N>: run tests with instance numbers offset by N, used to run tests in parallel
[tx]using protocol versions 9 and 10 and stop after the first failure:

By default stellar-core listens for connections from localhost on port 11626. You can send commands to stellar-core via a web browser, curl, or using the --c command line option (see above). Most commands return their results in JSON format.
help Prints a list of currently supported commands.
Triggers the instance to catch up to ledger NNN from history; Mode is either ‘minimal’ (the default, if omitted) or ‘complete’.
checkdb Triggers the instance to perform a background check of the database’s state.
checkpoint Triggers the instance to write an immediate history checkpoint. And uploads it to the archive.
Triggers the instance to connect to peer NAME at port NNN.
deletes the tracking cursor with identified by
setcursor for more information.
info Returns information about the server in JSON format (sync state, connected peers, etc).
Adjust the log level for partition P where P is one of Bucket, Database, Fs, Herder, History, Ledger, Overlay, Process, SCP, Tx (or all if no partition is specified). Level is one of FATAL, ERROR, WARNING, INFO, DEBUG, VERBOSE, TRACE
Performs maintenance tasks on the instance.
queueperforms deletion of queue data. See
setcursorfor more information.
metrics Returns a snapshot of the metrics registry (for monitoring and debugging purpose).
Clear metrics for a specified domain. If no domain specified, clear all metrics (for testing purposes).
peers Returns the list of known peers in JSON format.
returns information about the quorum for node NODE_ID (this node by default). NODE_ID is either a full key (
GABCD...), an alias (
an abbreviated ID (
If compact is set, only returns a summary version.
sets or creates a cursor identified by
ID with value
N. ID is an uppercase AlphaNum, N is an uint32 that represents the last ledger sequence number that the instance ID processed.
Cursors are used by dependent services to tell stellar-core which data can be safely deleted by the instance.
The data is historical data stored in the SQL tables such as txhistory or ledgerheaders. When all consumers processed the data for ledger sequence N the data can be safely removed by the instance.
The actual deletion is performed by invoking the
maintenance endpoint or on startup.
gets the cursor identified by
ID. If ID is not defined then all cursors will be returned.
Returns a JSON object with the internal state of the SCP engine for the last n (default 2) ledgers.
submit a transaction to the network. blob is a base64 encoded XDR serialized ‘TransactionEnvelope’, and it returns a JSON object with the following properties status:
1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. It is the time the upgrade will be scheduled for. If it is in the past, the upgrade will occur immediately.
Artificially generate load for testing; must be used with
ARTIFICIALLY_GENERATE_LOAD_FOR_TESTING set to true.
Depending on the mode, either creates new accounts or generates payments on
accounts specified (where number of accounts can be offset).
Additionally, allows batching up to 100 account creations per transaction
manualclose If MANUAL_CLOSE is set to true in the .cfg file. This will cause the current ledger to close.
Returns basic information about the account identified by name. Note that N is a string used as seed, but “root” can be used as well to specify the root account used for the test instance.
Injects a payment transaction (or a create transaction if “create” is specified) from the account F to the account T, sending N XLM to the account. Note that F and T are seed strings but can also be specified as “root” as a shorthand for the root account for the test instance.
