I want to check if my history_plugin and history_api_plugin is running and which options are enabled.

How do I check this from cleos ? Also, can I enable history_plugin without replaying or stopping the nodeos ?

  • As a better practice, you should always enable plugins from config.ini, so you can always check there which plugins are enabled and which are disabled.

This is not a direct way, but you can check whether ***_api_plugin is activated by calling /v1/node/get_supported_apis. Run the next command in command line (in the case of local testnet). You should stop nodeos first to toggle plugin activation.

  • Thank you. It did work.
