I like to be efficient, so doing the fewer things possible to handle and maintain my UNS Node.
After explaining how to auto-update a UNS node, here is the tuto about how to monitor your UNS Node.
What does “monitor my UNS Node” mean?
For me, it means to be warned when there is a problem with my node:
- it is unresponsive: no more space left on the VPS, Docker issue, restart issue …
- it doesn’t forge: mainly, it is unsynchronized (most of the time, because the first point above)
I want to use a free toolchain to monitor my node, and finally, I’m just using:
- the common UNS API
- the UNS API of my node
- the free plan of Uptimerobot monitoring cloud service
Check if your node is synchronized
- Open a free account at Uptimerobot
- Configure an alert contact in your settings
Email, Slack …
- Add a new monitor
Click on “Add a new monitor” button (top-left):
- Keyword: the unikid of the delegate you want to check synchronization
- Alert when:
Keyword NOT exists
- Monitoring interval: every 6 hours is enough
The shorter the interval will be, the more false alerts you will have, because a node can be desynchronized but can then resynchronize by itself
Check if your node is up and running
I will describe this part later.
@network_player what do you think of that?
