Adding Load Balancing For reading node into long running chain

+2 votes

I've been using multichain with only one node. Lately my rpc requests are getting slow, especially getaddressbalances and for the transactions using sendassetfrom. After reading Clustering nodes for high availability session, it says we can add Load balancing for reading node for the call like getaddressbalances ( actually I want to improve multicahin performance ).  However, I don't know how can I add Load Balancing For reading node into my chain which have been running for a long time.

Please explain how can I do?

Just add another node to the chain and it will automatically catch up. You can then use importaddress to add the address of interest to that other node, and getaddressbalances will work for that address.

Do I need to grant "mine" permission for the new node?
No, this is only for nodes that are responsible for building blocks in the chain.
Oh I see, Thanks for your explanation. You saved my day.
