hosts monitor / faq
SiaStats attempts to sign contracts with every host in the network, and if successful, will upload and download a small file every 2 hours to test the host capabilities. From this data, latency, upload throughput and download throughput are determined. I want to show my gratitude with Luke Champine for creating the us library and the ushb script that allows these benchmarks, as well as for his guiding and help with the implementation.
(1) The radial gauges visually represent the score in the 3 categories (with the final score in the center). From the exterior to the interior: latency, upload and download (from the renters perspective)
(2) The score table shows the average results of the previous 7 days, both as absolute measures and as a 0-10 scores. It also shows the percentage of succeeded benchmarks.
(3) Result of the last benchmark, and the issue that made it fail (if failed).
(4) Link to the results of all the recent benchmarks
(5) This table compares the pricing and stored data of the selected host (right column) with the average of other hosts with a similar scoring (left column). This table can be useful for hosts to determine if they should change their pricing and if they are getting amounts of stored data similar to other hosts in the same score range.
When a file contract could not be signed with the host with previously, the host will be flagged as offline if the host databases of 2 Sia nodes in different locations marks it as offline.
