The DApp Management Page

Each DApp features a Management Page that is standard across all AVADO DApp packages. The Management Page can be accessed via the My DApps menu, by clicking on the Manage button for a DApp, for example:


The Management Page provides several important controls functions:

  • Pause: Pause will temporarily put the DApp on hold. For an Execution Client or a Consensus Client, Pause will preserve the blockchain data. The DApp will be able resume when it is restarted, after a short period of re-syncing.

  • Restart: Restart a package. This may be necessary if there is a problem with the DApp. The package data is preserved.

  • Reset: The restores the package to its factory settings. Note that all chain data will be lost! For an Execution Client or a Consensus Client, a complete re-sync will be necessary. If you have imported validator keys into the Consensus Client, you will need to reload the keys using your keystore files.

  • Remove: This removes the package and its data from the system. It is a good practice to follow up by performing a Disk Cleanup action on the System menu to reclaim the disk space previously occupied by the DApp.

Scroll down for more information and controls. The Stats panel provides some technical information about the DApp. The File Manager panel provides a means of exchanging files with the DApp, in exceptional situations (for advanced use only).

Environment Variables

The Environment Variables panel is important. There will be several situations where you will be asked to supply additional parameters to the DApp for special processing. Follow the instructions provided to fill in the Value box of the relevant variable. Then click Update environment variables to confirm the change. This will also restart the DApp.


Finally, at the bottom of the page is the Logs panel. The Logs show a wealth of information about what the DApp is going through, and are especially useful during the syncing process of the staking clients, and for troubleshooting. Here is an example for Nethermind:

Tips on using the Logs

By default, the window shows the last 200 lines of the Logs. Increase the Lines value to "scroll back" to see more lines.

You can enter some text in the Search box to filter out specific lines in the Logs for easier inspection.
