I want to find the sat/vb of a tx in a mempool. I am using bitcoin-cli to do this.

cmd = ['bitcoin-cli', 'getrawtransaction', txid, "true"]

This is the command that I extrect the info of the given tx but it only returns the size not the fee. Thus I cannot calculate the sat/vb how can I find how much fee is paid?

Since Bitcoin Core v25.0 (implemented in #23319) you can get the transaction fee (and prevouts) in getrawtransaction by setting the last parameter to 2.
