ConsenSys Rollups architecture
The following diagram outlines the ConsenSys Rollups high-level architecture.
The following steps describe the communication between the manager and engine components, which is asynchronous due to the nature of interactions with the blockchain:
- The manager accepts a request from a dapp and does some preliminary validation.
- The manager computes the operation hash using a cryptographic library.
- The manager saves the pending operation on its local database.
- The engine registers the request from the manager if it passes some initial validation.
- After executing operations, the engine submits the batch to the blockchain.
- When a request is submitted to a blockchain, and a “Batch Submitted” event is received, the engine sends batch information to a Kafka topic. Each operation in the batch data contains an operation hash, so the manager can map it to particular request from the user.
- When the engine receives a “Batch Finalized” event, it sends a message to a Kafka topic, which includes the batch height.
- When the manager receives a “Batch Finalized” message from Kafka, it updates its local database.
