Testing Packet Forwarding

Prerequisites

  • Gaiad (v6.*.*). The version can be checked with:
gaiad version --log_level error --long | head -n4

Testing procedure

Setup using Gaia manager

Note: The gm.toml file that we're using here looks like this:

[global]
  add_to_hermes = true
  auto_maintain_config = true
  extra_wallets = 2
  gaiad_binary = "/Users/luca/go/bin/gaiad"
  hdpath = ""
  home_dir = "/Users/luca/.gm"
  ports_start_at = 27000
  validator_mnemonic = ""
  wallet_mnemonic = ""

  [global.hermes]
    binary = "$HOME/.hermes/bin/hermes"
    config = "$HOME/.hermes/config.toml"
    log_level = "trace"
    telemetry_enabled = true
    telemetry_host = "127.0.0.1"
    telemetry_port = 3001

[ibc-0]
  ports_start_at = 27000

[ibc-1]
  ports_start_at = 27010

[ibc-2]
  ports_start_at = 27020
  • Run the command gm start
  • Run the commands: gm hermes config and gm hermes keys

Test packet forwarding

  1. Create a channel between ibc-0 and ibc-1, and another between ibc-1 and ibc-2:

    hermes create channel --a-chain ibc-0 --b-chain ibc-1 --a-port transfer --b-port transfer --new-client-connection
    
    
    SUCCESS Channel {
        ordering: Unordered,

  2. Obtain the addresses of the wallets on each chain:

    hermes keys list --chain ibc-0
    
    
    SUCCESS 
    - wallet2 (cosmos179ld56nmany7nqmsdjz684rx5t4r5gxspn6hgr)
    - wallet (cosmos1gz507egejvz3ukg3xwr3v04n3xcny7vcnkjw32)
    - wallet1 (cosmos14cgtalvczzm6xuaa086g5tx6sss6e85j55vqrd)
    
    hermes keys list --chain ibc-1
    
    
    SUCCESS 
    - wallet2 (cosmos1pmzq62tewxla9z7gpntcnvszyrkygnk4mesauy)
    - wallet (cosmos1jwr34yvnkqkc0ddndnh9y8t94hlhn7rapfyags)
    - wallet1 (cosmos1at4nj238c3ltlj0wymwgfjmdjctlvstwj8xl2s)
    
    hermes keys list --chain ibc-2
    
    
    SUCCESS 
    - wallet2 (cosmos1xpezl2vvwg9fhdmksvne6lygd7dwz4vf65v6ye)
    - wallet (cosmos1nsztzzhl553avufxhqa204908l4dndafqph4tw)
    - wallet1 (cosmos1csdnmydggcyvjd7z8l64z9lpdgmgyr4v7hw5r8)
    
  3. (Optional) Check the balance of the wallets before transfering tokens:

    hermes keys balance --all --chain ibc-0
    
    
    SUCCESS Balances for key `wallet`:
            100000000 samoleans
            99992294 stake
    
    hermes keys balance --all --chain ibc-1
    
    
    SUCCESS Balances for key `wallet`:
            100000000 samoleans
            99983377 stake
    
    hermes keys balance --all --chain ibc-2
    
    
    SUCCESS Balances for key `wallet`:
            100000000 samoleans
            99990916 stake
    
  4. (Optional) Confirm the name of the channels used for the transfer:

    hermes query channels --counterparty-chain ibc-1 --chain ibc-0
    
    
    SUCCESS [
        PortChannelId {
            channel_id: ChannelId(
                "channel-0",
            ),
            port_id: PortId(
                "transfer",
            ),
        },
    ]
    
    hermes query channels --counterparty-chain ibc-2 --chain ibc-1
    
    
    SUCCESS [
        PortChannelId {
            channel_id: ChannelId(
                "channel-1",
            ),
            port_id: PortId(
                "transfer",
            ),
        },
    ]
    
  5. In a separate terminal, start an instance of Hermes:

    hermes start
    
    
  6. Transfer token using the special receiver:

    hermes tx ft-transfer --denom samoleans --receiver 'cosmos1jwr34yvnkqkc0ddndnh9y8t94hlhn7rapfyags|transfer/channel-1:cosmos1nsztzzhl553avufxhqa204908l4dndafqph4tw' --timeout-seconds 120 --dst-chain ibc-1 --src-chain ibc-0 --src-port transfer --src-channel channel-0 --amount 2500
    
    
    SUCCESS [
        IbcEventWithHeight {
            event: SendPacket(
                SendPacket {
