Monitoring Your Node

** To monitor your node you have to keep an eye on your node as well as your server **

** and to do this we will use grafana,prometheus and node_exporter **

Grafana - https://grafana.com/

Prometheus - https://prometheus.io/

Node_exporter - https://github.com/prometheus/node_exporter

OS : Linux OS Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS

Grafana ** Installing grafana **

sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https software-properties-common wget

sudo mkdir -p /etc/apt/keyrings/

wget -q -O - https://apt.grafana.com/gpg.key | gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /etc/apt/keyrings/grafana.gpg > /dev/null

echo "deb [signed-by=/etc/apt/keyrings/grafana.gpg] https://apt.grafana.com stable main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/grafana.list

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install grafana

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

sudo systemctl start grafana-server

sudo systemctl status grafana-server

** Your Grafana should be working now **

** Log to your grafana dashboard on port 3000**


** We will use namada dashboard and change the space namespace to cometbft **

** go to grafana dashboard **


** search for namada , or chose ID 19014 then import it to your grafana dashboard **

** here is the link for namada dashboard to import **


Prometheus ** Installing Prometheus **

** Please follow the complete guide from offical site **


Node_exporter ** Installing Node_exporter **

** Please follow the complete guide from Prometheus site **


** search for node_exporter , or chose ID 11074 then import it to your grafana dashboard **

** here is the link for Node_exporter dashboard to import **



** Soon **
Archive Node Snapshot
