Is there a way to configure the number of keypairs (or addresses) created by bitcoind or bitcoin-qt?

I've looked at the sample bitcoin.conf file, but failed to find the relevant parameter.

  • You get a new keypair for each address. There is nothing to configure. – Pieter Wuille Apr 3 '17 at 17:44

Finally found it:

# Pre-generate this many public/private key pairs, so wallet backups will be valid for
# both prior transactions and several dozen future transactions.
