You are not familiar with cardano and are wondering why suddenly payment2.addr appears in the official cardano documentation? Basically, payment2.addr should just demonstrate how to build and execute transactions using CLI.
When you look at chapter 3.3 of the official documentation, here, for the first time,
payment2.addr is being used without further explanation how to create this address.
cardano-cli shelley transaction build-raw \
--tx-in 4e3a6e7fdcb0d0efa17bf79c13aed2b4cb9baf37fb1aa2e39553d5bd720c5c99#4 \
--tx-out $(cat payment2.addr)+0 \
--tx-out $(cat payment.addr)+0 \
--ttl 0 \
--fee 0 \
The solution is simple: Create your
payment2.addr by repeating the steps of the previous chapter to create a
cardano-cli shelley address key-gen \
--verification-key-file payment2.vkey \
cardano-cli shelley stake-address key-gen \
--verification-key-file stake2.vkey \
cardano-cli shelley address build \
--payment-verification-key-file payment2.vkey \
--stake-verification-key-file stake2.vkey \
--out-file payment2.addr \

Cardano's [CAFE] and [CAFE2] are updated to newest version 1.25.1. For all stake pool operators (SPOs) it is important to know that with release of 1.25.1 the mainnet-config.json in the repository of CF / IOHK was consolidated and is a lot slimmer than previous! Some names of statistic variables have changed. In most cases the wording "ChainDB_" was removed. So be sure to update your grafana dashboard so that you can still enjoy your statistics after update to 1.25.1.

Prometheus and grafana are helpful tools to monitor your nodes. They have a built-in alert function which notifies you about arising problems. This guide will show how to setup your infrastructure to do this monitoring with a separate machine thus not requiring additional installations on your vital cardano nodes.
