Glossary

Node pairing

Before we pair the two nodes, we are unable to determine what node is the source and what node is the destination. To avoid confusion, we use node A and node B when referring to the two nodes.

Node URI

The URI that identifies a federation node.

Node A

Node A is the node that initializes the process of creating a federated network with another node (node B).

Node B

Node B is the node that wishes to join a federated network, initialized by node A.

NodeID A

NodeID A is the node A identifier.

NodeID B

NodeID B is the node B identifier.

Token A

Token A is the authentication token used to access protected resources on node A.

Token B

Token B is the authentication token used to access protected resources on node B.

Node sync

Origin node

The origin node is the node that shares the data to the other node. If node A requests data from node B, node B is the origin, as it contains the data.

Destination node

The destination node is the node that receives the data from the origin node. If node A requests data from node B, node A is the destination as it receives the data.

Federated node

Node status

Node status defines the current status of the federated node. Can be one of the following:

  • pairing: the node is in the pairing process,

  • paired: the nodes were successfully paired,

  • failed: the node was unable to pair.

Structure sync status

Structure sync status defines the current status of the federation node structure syncing. Can be one of the following:

  • syncing: the node is currently syncing structures from the origin node,

  • synced: the node has successfully finished syncing,

  • failed: there was an error while syncing.

Data sync status

Data sync status defines the current status of the federated node data syncing. Can be one of the following:

  • syncing: the node is currently syncing data from the origin node,

  • synced: the node has successfully finished syncing,

  • failed: there was an error while syncing.
