trace_callMany RPC Method

Executes a call like eth_call but returns traces. In trace_callMany you can specify multiple trace_call objects and execute them on the same block.


  • array - The list of trace objects
    • output - The output (return value) of the call
    • stateDiff - The state changes that would happen due to the transaction in the given eth_call
    • trace - The trace of the call
      • action - The action to be performed
        • from - The address of the sender
        • callType - The type of method such as call, delegatecall
        • gas - The gas provided by the sender
        • input - The input data of the call or delegatecall
        • to - The address of the receiver
        • value - The amount of ETH sent with this transaction
      • result - The result of the transaction
        • gasUsed - Gas used by the transaction
        • output - The return value of the call. Can be empty.
      • subtraces - The traces of internal transactions (calls made by the contract)
      • traceAddress - The list of addresses where the call was executed, the address of the parents and the order of the current sub call
      • type - The value of the method such as call or create
    • vmTrace - The full trace of the virtual machine's state during execution of the given eth_call, including any sub-calls

The individual objects are similar to eth_call. The difference to trace_call is that you provide an array of trace_call params and get a response for each trace.

1st inner param of the array

object - The eth_call data

  • from [optional] - The address from which the transaction is sent.
  • to - The address where the transaction is sent to.
  • gas [optional] - Integer of the gas provided for the transaction execution. Although eth_call consumes zero gas, this parameter may still be needed by some executions.
  • gasPrice [optional] - Integer of the gasPrice used for each paid gas as hexadecimal.
  • value [optional] - Interger of the value sent with a stated transaction
  • data [optional] - Hash of the method signature and encoded parameters. More info 👉 Ethereum Contract ABI (opens in a new tab)

2nd inner param of the array

  • array - The type of traces to include
    • vmTrace - Include the full trace of the virtual machine during the transaction
    • trace - Include the basic trace of the transaction
    • stateDiff - Include state changes caused by the transaction

2.Block number or Tag [required]

Hexadecimal block number or a Tag "latest", "earliest", "pending", "safe" or "finalized".

"Safe" and "finalized" are only availible on Ethereum and Arbitrum One chains. Read block parameter description in Ethereum documentation (opens in a new tab).
