The response follows the standard format, with a successful result containing the following fields:

Field Type Description
current_ledger_size String (Integer) Number of transactions provisionally included in the in-progress ledger.
current_queue_size String (Integer) Number of transactions currently queued for the next ledger.
drops Object Various information about the transaction cost (the Fee field of a transaction), in drops of XRP.
drops.base_fee String (Integer) The transaction cost required for a reference transaction to be included in a ledger under minimum load, represented in drops of XRP.
drops.median_fee String (Integer) An approximation of the median transaction cost among transactions included in the previous validated ledger, represented in drops of XRP.
drops.minimum_fee String (Integer) The minimum transaction cost for a reference transaction to be queued for a later ledger, represented in drops of XRP. If greater than base_fee, the transaction queue is full.
drops.open_ledger_fee String (Integer) The minimum transaction cost that a reference transaction must pay to be included in the current open ledger, represented in drops of XRP.
expected_ledger_size String (Integer) The approximate number of transactions expected to be included in the current ledger. This is based on the number of transactions in the previous ledger.
ledger_current_index Number The Ledger Index of the current open ledger these stats describe. New in: rippled 0.50.0
levels Object Various information about the transaction cost, in fee levels. The ratio in fee levels applies to any transaction relative to the minimum cost of that particular transaction.
levels.median_level String (Integer) The median transaction cost among transactions in the previous validated ledger, represented in fee levels.
levels.minimum_level String (Integer) The minimum transaction cost required to be queued for a future ledger, represented in fee levels.
levels.open_ledger_level String (Integer) The minimum transaction cost required to be included in the current open ledger, represented in fee levels.
levels.reference_level String (Integer) The equivalent of the minimum transaction cost, represented in fee levels.
max_queue_size String (Integer) The maximum number of transactions that the transaction queue can currently hold.
