Grafana is awesome. It would allow the storage node community to setup a grafana dashboard inclusive email alerts. The email alerts could get fired within 5 minutes after a problem was detected instead of hours later when the satellite might notice it.
Currently, there is already a grafana dashboard but it requires running a log scraper process. It would be nice if the storage node could send these metrics directly. The storage node already contains a metric endpoint. So we just need to make sure the data that the log scraper collects is also available on the storage node metrics endpoint. Maybe we can add a bit of documentation around it so that the community is able to extend the metrics endpoint every time they wish to add something to the grafana dashboard.
