Title: Testnet is under stress testing?
Post by: amaclin1 on September 12, 2018, 11:30:38 AM
Bitcoin testnet3 looks strange nowadays. I am trying to investigate what is going on.
My first question is: how to get the hashpower?

Code:
getnetworkhashps
448 771 294 947 646.9

Am I right that this value is ~450 TH/s or in other words ~32 Antminer S9

It should be true and according to the documentation[1], it also say same thing. But there's no correlation between hashrate and stress testing since all you need to do are generate and broadcast lots of transaction.

Stress-testing is very wide term  ;D
I see now a lot of transactions and too big (in my opinion) hashrate.
I haven't analyzed yet the blocks and transactions themselves.

You're right, but if you ask people about cryptocurrency stress testing, majority would say high/increased amount of transaction. Not about unstable hashrate or other unusual test.
Can't say you will find out interesting result from your upcoming analyze besides raising TPS/hashrate.
