StreamingFast Firehose relayer component
The Relayer component is responsible for providing executed block data to other Firehose components.
The Relayer component feeds from all available Reader nodes to get a comprehensive view of all possible forks.
The Relayer "fans out", or relays, block information to the other Firehose components.
The Relayer component serves its block data through the streaming gRPC interface
BlockStream::Blocks. This is the same interface that the Reader component exposes to the Relayer component. Read more about the
BlockStream::Blocksinterface in its GitHub repository.
