  • filterId — the ID of the filter whose changes are being queried. This ID is returned by filter creation methods such as eth_newBlockFilter, or eth_newFilter. For this example, a random value "0x4a2b3c" is used.


  • result — an array of changes. For log filters, this will be an array of log entries. For block filters, it will be an array of block hashes. For pending transaction filters, it will be an array of transaction hashes. Each log entry object contains details such as the log index, transaction index, transaction hash, block hash, block number, address, data, and topics.
