The Loki Launcher has just been released, and we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that all Service Nodes update.
The Loki Launcher has a number of components which will improve the user experience for Service Node operators and reduce the chance of being deregistered. These include managing the Loki Storage Server, lokid, and in the future, Lokinet – which will startup and restart these applications if they crash.
User Experience Improvements
Easy access to the lokid console from Loki Launcher
Lokid is now handled by the Loki Launcher. Running the command ‘loki-launcher client’ will allow you to run commands compatible with the Loki daemon, such as ‘prepare_registration’, ‘print_sn_key’, e.t.c.
Unified config file for Loki Storage Server, lokid and Lokinet.
You can now use one unified config file to manage all aspects of the Loki Service Node software!
The Loki Launcher uses the newly unified config file to manage the Loki Storage Server, lokid and Lokinet properties! It also includes validation on startup to alert you to any errors in the config file.
It’s now much easier to update your Service Node!
We’ve added commands to the Loki Launcher to make downloading the latest Loki binaries as simple as running, ‘loki-launcher download-binaries’.
Service Node Bench Utility
Running the SNbench utility will test your node and advise you on whether your setup meets the requirements for each release.
