Make sure you have node.js and npm installed.
Clone the repository and install the dependencies
git clone https://github.com/ethereum/eth-netstats cd eth-netstats npm install sudo npm install -g grunt-cli
Build the resources
NetStats features two versions: the full version and the lite version. In order to build the static files you have to run grunt tasks which will generate dist or dist-lite directories containing the js and css files, fonts and images.
To build the full version run
To build the lite version run
If you want to build both versions run
see the interface at http://localhost:3000
In order to receive stats from running nodes the web socket password needs to be provided
WS_SECRET=<secret> npm start
<secret> is the value specified in the app.json file in the eth-net-intelligence-api directory. Running these tools concurrently with an etherium node will display the node on the eth-netstats interface.
Receiving Stats From an Ethereum Node
Follow the instructions for installing and running The Ethereum Network Intelligence API. Make sure to edit the
app.json file with the appropriate information. In particular:
- Confirm the correct configuration for the
CONFIGURATION_PORT. The defaults are
INSTANCE_NAMEis the name your Ethereum node appears as in the front end.
WS_SERVERis the IP address and port (3000 is default).
- As mentioned earlier
WS_SECRETneeds to match the environmental variable provided when running
The Ethereum Network Intelligence API should be run concurrently with the Ethereum client of your choice. More information on running Ethereum node can be found here.
