How can I see how many active connections there are on Linux?

3 Answers 3


bitcoin-cli getinfo will show the number of connections.

bitcoin-cli getpeerinfo will give information about individual connections.


(GUI Method) Open Bitcoin Core and open the debug window. On the "console" tab, type in getconnectioncount.

You can also hover your mouse over the "connections" icon in the bottom right. (Also in the GUI)


To view active-connections to the Bitcoin Network, simply run bitcoin-cli getconnectioncount to return the count within the terminal-output.
