Lightning Network Dev publicizes about the Alpha version of network monitoring tool on 26th July. An extra sheet of blockchain network protocol is designed to provide Bitcoin with fast transaction speed. With this, Bitcoin and other networks will have a new monitoring tool for the nodes. The developers have named the new tool as Indmon.
As per Valentine Wallace wrote the blog post on 24th July, Lightning Labs has released an alpha version of open source dockerized drop-in monitoring solution for lndmon. The version is at the alpha testing stage.
The primary intent of this version is to provide a solution to specific network problems. This year the distributed network faced a few particular issues; it is expected that these problems can be prevented with the new version of the tool for node monitoring as mentioned earlier.
As per the instance is given by Wallace, the node operator of the route may need to get a prior notification, if multiple nodes are shut in swift succession or if the nodes show specific signs of instability.
With the monitoring at real-time, the developers of Lightning Networks believe that the network will get stabilized.
The blog post of Wallace also points out that the tools have specific use cases in addition to monitoring possible problems. He said the user could also follow the nodes for financial issues. The user can also use these tools to track the trends like routing costs of the channels and number of channels completed in a certain time etc.
The network protocol of Lightning Network works for top blockchain-based digital currencies. They allow the fastest transactions between the participating nodes. The firm is also praised for providing a solution to the scalability problems of Bitcoin.
Minicomputers worth $35 million were released in June by Raspberry Pi Foundation. These single board computers are influential enough to run a complete feature of the BTC network. The company has designed these computer models to run BTC nodes at a cheaper rate. They will also make the node operation easy for a variety of users. These computers can be used by people from different backgrounds like miners, privacy-conscious individuals, and business at a low cost.
