Avail Turing Testnet

The Turing Testnet is live and marks Avail's final and definitive pre-Mainnet testing environment, aimed at vetting Mainnet deployments, executing extensive stress tests, and assessing network topologies for scalability and resilience. Validators are tasked with an important role in network orchestration, ensuring seamless integration and providing critical feedback for iterative improvements to the Avail team.

sudo mkdir -p $HOME/avail-node && cd $HOME/avail-node
sudo wget https://github.com/availproject/avail/releases/download/v2.2.1.0-rc1/x86_64-ubuntu-2204-avail-node.tar.gz
sudo tar xvzf x86_64-ubuntu-2204-data-avail.tar.gz
sudo rm -rf x86_64-ubuntu-2204-avail-node.tar.gz
sudo chmod +x avail-node
cd $HOME

7. Create a service

NOTE: Change the section that says NodeSync.Top, your display name in explorer...

sudo tee /etc/systemd/system/availd.service > /dev/null <<'EOF'
Description=Avail Turing Validator

ExecStart=$HOME/avail-node/avail-node -d $HOME/avail-node/node-data --chain turing --validator --name $yournodename

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable availd
sudo systemctl restart availd 

8. Check service & logs:

sudo systemctl status availd
sudo journalctl -u availd -f -o cat

9. Session Keys

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"id":1, "jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "author_rotateKeys", "params":[]}' http://localhost:9944

10. Snapshot

sudo systemctl stop availd
rm -rf $HOME/avail-node/node-data/chains/avail_turing_network/paritydb
wget https://files.nodesync.top/Avail-Turing/avail-turing-snap.tar.lz4 
lz4 -c -d avail-turing-snap.tar.lz4 | tar -x -C $HOME/avail-node/node-data/chains/avail_turing_network/
rm -rf avail-turing-snap.tar.lz4
sudo systemctl restart availd
sudo journalctl -u availd -f -o cat

11. Upgrade

cd $HOME && sudo systemctl stop availd.service && cd $HOME/avail-node
rm -rf avail-node
wget https://github.com/availproject/avail/releases/download/v2.2.1.0-rc1/x86_64-ubuntu-2204-avail-node.tar.gz
tar -xf x86_64-ubuntu-2204-avail-node.tar.gz
rm -rf x86_64-ubuntu-2204-avail-node.tar.gz
cd $HOME
