when running a parachain, we can specify arguments for the relay chain, by adding a double-dash (
--) separator between parachain and relay chain arguments, like so:
$ calamari \ --name '🦑 marmara' \ --base-path /var/lib/substrate \ ... -- \ --name '🦑 marmara' \ --telemetry-url 'wss://api.telemetry.manta.systems/submit/ 0' \ ...
i have noticed that the
--name parameter is always ignored when it appears in the relay chain arguments. this means that the node's relay-chain telemetry name is always set to a random name, which makes it difficult to identify a node quickly in a telemetry ui (eg: here).
is it possible to set the node's relay-chain telemetry name either with a different argument or by modifying the parachain node binary source code to honour the
--name parameter? it seems the parameter is just ignored (without error or warning). at least in my testing with manta/calamari and moonbeam/moonriver.
