Hi Rich, welcome to Sovrin.
Here are some tips to seeing what is going on in the ledger as you work with it. First, from the CLI node:
- You can query the ledger from the indy> command line. See “send GET_NYM”, for example.
- In addition to what you see going to the console, there are cli logs at ~.indy-cli/cli.log
You will see a lot more if you log into a validator (any of them) and look around:
- Run “sudo read_ledger --type domain” from the bash prompt. This will do a dump of the copy of the ledger contained on that validator to screen. You can also dump the metadata ledgers (pool and config) with this command, but this may be of less interest to you.
- Run “sudo validator-info -v” to get status on that validator.
- As the “indy” user, read the validator logs at /var/log/indy/sandbox/<node_alias>.log. For <node_alias>, substitute the alias of the validator that you are logged into, e.g. Node1.
- To temporarily become the indy user, run “sudo su - indy”. Type “exit” when you want to return to your login user.
