**This page will be updated with the links for Electroneum in due course. For now, they will refer to the analogous links for Ethereum, for example purposes.

Ethstats is a service that displays real time and historical statistics about individual nodes connected to a network and about the network itself. Individual node statistics include the last received block, block time, propagation time, connected peers, latency etc. Network metrics include the number of nodes, average block times, node geolocation, transaction counts etc.

These statistics are presented to the user in the form of a dashboard served to a web browser. This can be configured using the public Ethstats server for Electroneum Smart Chain mainnet, or using a local copy of Ethstats for private networks. This page will demonstrate how to set up an Ethstats dashboard for private and public networks.


To follow the instructions on this page the following are required:

  • Etn-sc

  • Node

  • NPM

  • Git


Ethstats has three components:

  • a server that consumes data sent to it by each individual node on a network and serves statistics generated from that data.

  • a client that queries a node and sends its data to the server

  • a dashboard that displays the statistics generated by the server

We will soon release a public summary dashboard for Electroneum Mainnet.

Note that the Ethstats dashboard is not a reliable source of information about the entire Electroneum network because submitting data to the Ethstats server is voluntary and has to be configured by individual nodes. Therefore, many nodes are omitted from the summary statistics.

How to use

To report statistics about the local node to Ethstats, an Ethstats server and Ethstats client both have to be installed alongside Etn-sc. There are several options for installing Ethstats clients and servers, each with detailed installation instructions. They all share the common trait that an Ethstats service is started with a specific URL that can be passed to Geth.

EthNetStats "Classic"

EthNet Intelligence API

If enabled, Etn-sc spins up a minimal Ethstats reporting daemon that pushes statistics about the local node to the Ethstats server.

To enable this, start Etn-sc with the ethstats flag, passing the Ethstats service (nodename:secret@host:port) URL.

etn-sc <other commands> --ethstats node1:secret:

The local node will then report to Ethstats, and the statistics will be displayed in a dashboard that can be accessed via the web browser.

Note on WS_secret

The WS_secret parameter is required for connecting to an Ethstats server. For a local network this can be user-defined on startup by providing it as an environment variable. However, for Electroneum Smart Chain mainnet and the public testnets predefined values must be known. The user will have to track down existing Ethstats users to request the WS_secret.
