KMS - Daemon mode and credit consumption

Modified on Mon, 31 Oct 2022 at 10:48 AM

KMS in Daemon mode periodically checks for pending transactions every 5 seconds by default, costing 4 credits per minute. 

This means 4 (credits) *60 (minutes) *24 (hours) == 5760 credits/day.

On top of that, there's a cost to sign transactions at a rate of x1 credit for every 500 txID signature attempts.

Good to know

To lower the baseline credit consumption, you may increase the periodicity checks.
