Quorum Hibernate

Quorum Hibernate is a proxy that monitors a node’s API traffic and hibernates the node when inactive. This reduces infrastructure costs by ensuring only nodes receiving API requests, or nodes required to establish consensus are running.

Quorum Hibernate also wakes up hibernating nodes:

  • When a new transaction or API request is received.
  • To allow it to periodically sync with the network.
