Deploying a Rollup Verifier/Replica Node From Docker

To build an app on Mantle network, you'll need access to a Mantle node. There are multiple public Node RPC Providers that you can choose from, or you can deploy your own depending on the requirements for your specific use cases.


This doc is a simple introduction to the process. For more details, please refer to this:


Ensure you have the following software installed:

Hardware Recommendations

For optimal performance, it is recommended to have the following hardware specifications:

  • RAM - 16GB+
  • CPU - 8C+
  • Storage - 4T+ disk(HDD works for now, SSD is better)
  • Bandwidth - 10mb/s+ download speed

Approximate Disk Usage

As of Dec. 25, 2023:

  • Archive node: ~1.5TB
  • Full node: ~75GB

Installation and Configuration

Clone the Repository

Firstly, we need to clone the repository:

git clone

Initialize to Generate Files

Before running the node, you need to generate some necessary files, such as the jwt_secret.txt and p2p_node_key.txt. You can find more details here.

Deploy the Node

We recommend that you start the node with the latest snapshot, so that you don't need to wait a long time to sync data. Check this to know how to get the latest snapshot.

  • Depending on the user's location, we provide download links for snapshots in different regions. Check more details here.

  • If you want to run with fullnode mode, please change the --gcmode to full in the docker-compose-mainnetv2.yml.

Operate Mantle Node

Once the snapshot is downloaded and extracted to the correct folder, you can start the node, we've prepared a docker-compose file for you, so that you can easily start and stop the node.


Please make sure to change your own L1 RPC Node URL in the docker-compose-mainnetv2.yml.

OP_NODE_L1_ETH_RPC: 'wss://' #change this


  1. Start the node
docker-compose -f docker-compose-mainnetv2.yml up -d
  1. We can use docker ps to get container id and docker logs to view the logs
docker logs -f <container_id>


Check Service Status

Once you start the node, you also need to check the service status, we provide a command to check the service status and the chain data.


When we use cast bn to check the service status, we will get the block number of the latest block. For example:


We can run this command many times to make sure the service is running correctly.
