Project summaryWe have started with the set up of the toolchain and managed to run a IDunion test network on our machines. Therefore not only the blockchain was set up, but the database Prometheus and dashboard software Grafana have been installed. In the end of the first half, the toolchain including the test network, Indy Node Monitor software, the database and dashboard was running. First data was collected and analyzed. In order to support the ability to reproduce and allow a fast and easy start-up of the implementation, the environment was encapsulated in a container environment and configuration scripts define the startup. Moreover, the metrics engine for analyzing the network with the blockchain was extended by a new key performance indicator. After the implementation of the toolchain and metrics engine, the dashboard was created and several functionality has been implemented. It is possible to filter data by time, change the dashboard by role, and send alert messages via MS teams. Overall, the dashboard is displaying the collected data in a reasonable fashion.
