GeoZIL - Geographic Localization of Zilliqa Nodes


#1

Dear Zilliqa Community,

I am pleased to announce the launch of GeoZIL, a platform visualizing geographic distribution of Zilliqa nodes.

At GeoZIL, you can not only observe the current live status of the Zilliqa network but also go back in time by selecting the Epoch you are interested in, awesome!

You can even create arbitrary filters, e.g. search for your miner’s IP address, by clicking “Add a filter +”. How cool is that?

Currently, only DS committee Nodes are observable, but Shard Nodes, Lookup Nodes, and Seed Nodes are already planned to be integrated. Please let me know if you are interested in any other live analytics which could be presented at GeoZIL in the future!

I am also interested to get in touch with Zilliqa Miners, which are willing to forward their logfile to GeoZIL platform and contributing to the GeoZIL database! Please pm me!

Enjoy GeoZIL at http://geozil.org :blush:

How does one PM here on this forum?

Also… nicely done but the dropdown list is a poor choice for epoch switching.

Actually, I don’t know. You can reach out to me the following ways:

I would appreciate getting in contact with you.

Yes, I know that the dropdown menu is far from optimal, but I found no better solution within the Kibana environment. In fact, there is a range slider in Kibana, but then you are always displaying multiple epochs defined by the range of the slider. Also not appropriate, but I will keep an eye open on better solutions…

Thanks for the feedback!
