How to Use It

// yarn add @tatumio/tatum

import { TatumSDK, Solana, Network } from '@tatumio/tatum'

const tatum = await TatumSDK.init<Solana>({ network: Network.SOLANA })

const res = await tatum.rpc.getBlockProduction()

await tatum.destroy() // Destroy Tatum SDK - needed for stopping background jobs


The getBlockProduction method provides information about the recent block production from the current or previous epoch. This can be used to monitor the performance and activity of validators on the Solana network.


  • options (object, optional): This object can contain the following fields:

    • commitment(string, optional): Specifies the level of commitment to apply when fetching data.

      • Values: finalized confirmed processed

    • identity (string, optional): Only return results for this validator identity (base-58 encoded).

    • range (object, optional): Slot range to return block production for.

      • firstSlot (number): First slot to return block production information for (inclusive).

      • lastSlot (number, optional): Last slot to return block production information for (inclusive).

Return Object

The result will be a JSON object with value equal to object with the following fields:

  • byIdentity (object): A dictionary of validator identities, as base-58 encoded strings. The value is a two-element array containing the number of leader slots and the number of blocks produced.

  • range (object): Block production slot range with fields firstSlot and lastSlot indicating the first and last slot of block production information respectively.
