Prerequisites

Attention

PegaSys Plus requires Java 11+ to compile; earlier versions are not supported. Plus is currently supported only on 64-bit versions of Windows, and requires a 64-bit version of JDK/JRE. We recommend that you also remove any 32-bit JDK/JRE installations.

Linux Open File Limit

If synchronizing to MainNet on Linux or other chains with large data requirements, increase the maximum number of open files allowed using ulimit. If the open files limit is not high enough, a Too many open files RocksDB exception occurs.

Install from packaged binaries

Download the PegaSys Plus packaged binaries.

Unpack the downloaded files and change into the pegasys-plus-<release> directory.
