Hyper Blackbox Exporter

A prometheus exporter to get basic metrics about hypercores. It uses the multi-exporter pattern.

Includes metrics:

  • hyper_probe_success: whether a hypercore can be located and its first block downloaded
  • hyper_probe_duration_seconds: how long it takes to locate the hypercore and download the first block
  • hyper_probe_nr_peers: how many peers are serving this block (this is an underbound, the server might not connect to all of them)

Install

npm i -g hyper-blackbox-exporter

Usage

Note: can also be run as Docker, see here.

CLI usage:

hyper-blackbox-exporter

Then from another terminal:

curl http://127.0.0.1:43211/probe?target=<key>

For example: curl http://127.0.0.1:43211/probe?target=aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Output example:

# HELP hyper_probe_duration_seconds Returns how long the probe took to complete in seconds
# TYPE hyper_probe_duration_seconds gauge
hyper_probe_duration_seconds 0.011095994994044303
# HELP hyper_probe_success Displays whether or not the probe was a success
# TYPE hyper_probe_success gauge
hyper_probe_success 1
# HELP hyper_probe_nr_peers Displays the number of peers who are serving this core
# TYPE hyper_probe_nr_peers gauge
hyper_probe_nr_peers 7
