chia-monitor

A monitoring tool to collect all important metrics from your Chia farming node and connected harvesters. It can send you push notifications with regular status updates and will alert you in case something goes wrong or a proof is found. All metrics are exported to a Prometheus compatible /metrics endpoint and a Grafana dashboard is also provided:

chia-monitor-1

This example dashboard displays almost all collected metrics and can be imported from grafana.com using the ID 14544 or using the grafana/dashboard.json from this repository.

Notifications

To use notifications, please configure a status_service_url and alert_service_url for your desired notification service in the config.json. You can use most popular notifications services by creating a service specific webhook URL, following the instructions from this wiki. If you wish to disable notifications entirely, you can set the enable field in the notifications section of the config.json to false.


Following notifications are currently sent to the status_service_url:

Farm summary (configurable interval in config.json)

Proof found alert

Triggers when a new partial or full proof is found. To limit the amount of notifications when pooling, this can be disabled in the config using the disable_proof_found_alert setting.

** ๐Ÿค‘ Proof found! ๐Ÿค‘ **
Your farm found a new partial or full proof

Following notifications are currently sent to the alert_service_url:

Sync lost alert

** ๐Ÿšจ Farmer Lost Sync! ๐Ÿšจ **
It seems like your farmer lost its connection to the Chia Network

Sync recovery alert

** โœ… Farmer Synced! โœ… **
Your farmer is successfully synced to the Chia Network again

Plots lost alert

Triggers when the total plot count of your farm drops below a configurable threshold (default: 1).

The corresponding lost_plots_alert_threshold parameter can be adjusted in the config.json.

** ๐Ÿšจ Farmer Lost Plots! ๐Ÿšจ **
It seems like your farmer lost some plots
Expected: 130, Found: 124

Plots recovery alert

** โœ… Farmer Plots recoverd! โœ… **
Your farmer's plot count has recovered to its previous value
