I'm trying to set up a PAB in order to test my contracts
Currently I have:
- fully synced a
cardano-noderunning on testnet
- fully synced
cardano-wallettracking one wallet
plutus-chain-indexsyncing at an absurd slow rate
pabinstance that displays
[pab:Info:1] [2022-04-11 14:07:59.27 UTC] Restoring PAB state ... [pab:Info:1] [2022-04-11 14:07:59.27 UTC] No contract instance were restored in the PAB state. [pab:Info:1] [2022-04-11 14:07:59.27 UTC] Starting PAB backend server on port 9080
and connecting to that instance, for example trying
does not works the first hours but it does after at least 5 hours, even if the chain-index syncing sits at 0.76% after all that time.
my questions are
- Why do we even need a
plutus-chain-indexinstance running if it is ok at 0.76%
- How can I get more information on when the PAB is ready?
