Test new downtime tracking system

A few months ago we implemented a new downtime tracking system. You can find the reasons and how it works here: Design draft: New way to measure SN uptimes

The new values are not displayed anywhere. So please forget about what the storage node dashboard is currently displaying.

Now I would like to double-check the values in our database. I need a few guinea pigs for that. The plan is that you tell me your nodeID and I will look up what the downtime tracking system has registered for your nodeID. Hopefully you can tell me if these values are correct, incorrect or you don’t know for sure but you still think it is incorrect. This makes especially sense if you notice that you had downtime and can even see in the storage node logs how long the downtime was. These situations would be perfect.

The results will look like this:

node_id tracked_at seconds
f2a3b4c4dfdf7221310382fd5db5aa73e1d227d6df09734ec4e5305000000000 01/25/20 16:58 893
f2a3b4c4dfdf7221310382fd5db5aa73e1d227d6df09734ec4e5305000000000 01/30/20 17:12 719

It’s a bit difficult to count that from logfiles and I don’t have all log files anymore but I have data in prometheus for >6 months. So if someone can tell me how to extract the time where no data is stored within that timeframe, I could probably easily tell you how long my node was probably offline. (didn’t have any relevant internet outage so only hardware offline time).

My logfiles only reach back 31 days.

I did have downtime when I was upgrading my nodes hardware.

I would happily try and help out. I am not too sure on my exact downtime, but it has only been for the updates (about 1-2 minutes each) and one reboot in the last 70 days (10 minutes according to logs). So if that kind of accuracy is helpful to you, here is my NodeID: 1F4dnzimiErEE5diN7PyvUGZY7hpVMcDq74XnaAeY6KvB5Yp2f



Uptime robot says my uptime for the last 30 days is 99.827%, though it looks like it ignores my second connection (or my dns update script is broken)


Lets give it a go!

Unfortunately i have above 4 hours of downtime in the last 30 days .


Uptime has been pretty ok for me until my ISP had me bring my old modem to get it replaced… very annoying. Still managed to keep downtime limited to 33 minutes… I was rushing… a lot, haha.

Last downtime was more than 30 days ago though. I don’t know how far you’re looking back?

@BrightSilence which software are you using to track downtime and uptime of your nodes (CD screenshots you sent)? Thanks

You can setup alerts with the mobile app as well! It’s very useful.


With a downtime of less than 1 hour, you might be lucky that the satellite didn’t notice it. I can see only all 3 tardigrade satellites that you have been offline in February?

I see no downtime at all for your nodeID. That is a good sign :slight_smile:

Seems pretty good the amount of downtime I have seen is pretty close Didnt think It was down for very long though but it was planned downtime for me was upgrade OS drive to SSD.

The satellites haven’t notice it. That is not a good sign. Are you sure?

No downtime in the database.

Ok I guess I will just skip everyone that has only a few minutes of downtime…
