The DAI Stablecoin System incentivizes external agents, called keepers, to automate certain operations around the Ethereum blockchain.
cdp-keeper is responsible for actively monitoring and managing open CDPs.
At the beginning it was capable only of topping them up if they get too close
to the liquidation level, but now more advances paths are being developed
(like automatically wiping the debt instead of topping-up, managing the SAI
volume within specific range etc.). This keeper is still under development.
It only monitors cups owned by the
--eth-from account. Cups owned by other
accounts are ignored.
If the CDP collateralization ratio goes below
--min-margin and at the same time the debt is greater than
--max-sai, it tries to
wipe some debt targeting
--avg-sai. if wiping that debt didn't help to bring collateralization ratio above
--min-margin (or it wasn't possible to
wipe at all for some reason, for example the keeper didn't have any Dai), it then tries to
lock some extra collateral in order to bring collateralization ratio at least to
--top-up-margin are expressed as on top of the current liquidation ratio configured.
If liquidation ratio is
1.50 (= 150%), then if you set
--min-margin 1.0 it will try to top-up if below 250%
