When I use the
requestHeapFrame instruction to request more heap, I expect it likely adds additional cost to my transaction. How do I calculate how much additional cost it would take?
requestHeapFrame instruction adds an additional 8 compute units per 32K heap requested.
This means if you have a compute budget instruction for
requestHeapFrame and use
SetComputeUnitPrice to set the microLamport price to 1 microLamport, you would incur
8 * (heapRequested / 32K) * computeUnitPrice more in microLamports on your transaction.
If you're interested in requesting more heap for your program, you'll have to add some code in order to make it possible to increase the total heap available.
