#141 SmartNode Monitor Telegram/Discord

By dustinface


To give SmartNode owners a simple way to monitor their nodes, I will offer a bot which runs on Discord and Telegram.


Hello everyone,

To give SmartNode owners a simple way to monitor their nodes, I am working on a bot which runs on Discord and Telegram. The bot will come with the following features:

  • Check the current number of created/enabled nodes in the network
  • Add/edit/remove your nodes in a private chat with the bot.
  • Display a detailed summary of all your added nodes. Metrics include:
    • Status
    • Public address
    • Uptime
    • Last seen
    • Last payout block and time
    • Protocol
    • Rank
  • Check the current balance of your nodes
  • Enable/disable several notifications in a private chat with the bot:
    • Reward notifications – Receive a notification when one of your nodes receives a reward.
    • Status notifications – Receive a notification if one of your nodes changes its status.
      • Why this is important - If your bot’s status is anything but Enabled, you will lose your payout positioning until you manually check and resolve the issue. Enabling notifications removes the need to constantly check each node’s status manually and allows you to address the issue in a quick and timely manner.
    • Rank notifications – Receive notifications whenever your node’s rank changes.
      • Currently it is unknown as to the purpose of rank but will continue to investigate.
    • Network notifications – You will receive a notification each time a new node joins/leaves the SmartNode network.
    • LastSeen notifications – You will receive a notification when the lastSeen timestamp of your node is greater then X.

The goal is to provide node owners with a free and convenient method for tracking key node metrics in an automated fashion.

    Hi .. before I vote, can you please let us know should this be approved - by when would you anticipate the system will be up and running in production? Thanks

    Like written in the proposal: "1 week after the proposal is approved." and the milestone is also "February 8" and its named "Release" So you can expect the release should be not later than there ;)
