Test of Parity startup time depending on number of predefined accounts


#1

Oracles dev team made tests of Parity startup time depending on number of predefined accounts in spec.json.

The results are here:

24


#2

A million accounts is a lot of accounts. A minute and a half is a notable delay. Viktor, could you tell us whether these results are great or troubling?

I assume, they are preparing for Presale which will include premined coins in spec.json, so they are testing how much the impact will be if they presell to 1MM addresses.
I could be wrong, it’s my only guess.

@wkarshat Walter, this notable delay affects only the startup time of the node, and, fortunately, it doesn’t affect the node’s mining feature.
The thousands of accounts are usual use case for airdrop, when the tokens after crowdsale are distributed in another network.
Nevertheless, we made tests till 1 million accounts, because it is close to the maximum number of available accounts in the mainnet (for example, if we’ll check at etherscan, there are 8 099 613 accounts in total for now).
