steem full node statistics with beem

I checked the following nodes:

nodes = ["wss://steemd.pevo.science", "wss://gtg.steem.house:8090", "wss://rpc.steemliberator.com", "wss://rpc.buildteam.io",
"wss://rpc.steemviz.com", "wss://seed.bitcoiner.me", "wss://node.steem.ws", "wss://steemd.steemgigs.org",

with the script benchmark_nodes.py from https://github.com/holgern/beem/blob/master/examples/benchmark_nodes.py. The script depends on the unreleased version 0.19.19 for beem, which is my python library for steem.

This script measures:

  • how long ten blockchains minutes need to be extracted
  • how long 10000 account operation need to be extracted (I took the account from gtg)

The current version of the node is also saved. When the node is reachable, it is added to the table below.

Ten blockchain minutes are equivalent to 200 blocks. So I measure the time to extract 200 blocks. I’m not using threads or batched calls for this. I did the same for 10000 account operations. The times are given in hours:minutes:seconds.

You can see that Websocket connection are much faster than https rpc calls, when not using any threads or batched calls. The official steem-python library does not support websocket connections. If you want to try if a websocket connection is faster, you can try my steem library beem. You can find it on github.


Do you know other full nodes, that I have forgotten? Please let me know!
