Sorry for the belated reply. These commands are useful: help - lists all the commands and parameters getconnectioncount - lists the number of peer connections, 8 is good. getblockcount - list the block height for the local blockchain You can compare the result from getblockcount with an Explorer latest block to see when your wallet is synced, there are probably other commands/ways to check this. Don't use "getinfo" because it is going away.
