Slamper releases a stats tools to browse Lisk data and describes his future projects
Slamper, Lisk standby delegate and Lisk Ascend member, released a new tool with a smart interface to browse real-time and historic Lisk transaction and account statistics.
These stats are based on the raw data from the Lisk blockchain and include current and full historic stats. Transactions stats are updated every 5 seconds, while account stats are updated every 60 seconds.
In the upper right corner you can select a timeframe from which the data should be shown. Some data is cumulative, which means that “New Accounts” shows the total number of new accounts in the selected timeframe. “Biggest Transaction” shows the amount of the biggest transaction in the timeframe.
You can also click and drag in a graph to select a smaller timeframe to inspect. The upper right corner also allows you to auto-refresh the data ever x seconds.
It’s also possible to share the data through a direct link, take a snapshot and export the dashboard to a JSON file.
Hi Slamper, which other metrics or tools are you planning to integrate?
I’m planning to integrate more stats about delegate ranks / votes, network stability (missed blocks, block propagation etc.), stats about the blocks (num transactions, size) utilitzing my new Network monitor and much more on request. Other community members can feel free to contact me with their idea for new stats that could be interesting.
What were the first impressions from the community?
The first reactions have been really positive and I’ve really been overwhelmed by that. This tool is really simple and was built in just a few hours, yet people seem to love this simplicity and a clear overview of usage metrics. That’s also the reason why I built this initially because people on Reddit have always been asking for how many new accounts per day there were and how many transactions but there was no easy way to find out.
Are you working on other projects?
Yes I am. Another project that’s close to release is a Lisk network monitor which uses the new 1.0.0 Websocket API to collect stats from all Lisk nodes on the network to measure uptime, health, block propagation speed, missed blocks + non forging etc.. The tool will allow node owners to set free alerts (Telegram, SMS, Lisk.chat) on their own nodes and delegates without having to install software on their servers. This data will also be recorded and made available via stats.lsk.party so it can be browsed easily.
The other project I’ve already released is Lisk Go (https://github.com/liskascend/lisk-go) an Lisk Elements port with added functionality to allow Go developers to build apps on Lisk. Because Go can be compiled to a static binary that’s also very useful for IoT applications.
