Hi everybody, back here with another installment of grid stats. I’ve two new sections this time, to give a more complete picture of what’s happening with nodes.

While new nodes are pretty easy to track, it’s much harder to know when nodes leave the grid. Nodes that go offline may or may not come back later, and if they do come back it might be with a new node id!

With that in mind, I’m adding a “missing in action” section, which records how many nodes showed their last online activity during the previously reported period (the week before last). The other section calculates the total change in online capacity since the last report. For the purposes of this report, any node that was online during the last 24 hours is counted as online.

This number is surprisingly high to me. I will note that while the trend in available capacity has been generally up among previous reports, it did actually fall this time, as we’ll see below. In the future, node ids should be tied more permanently to one system, so it should be more clear when hardware is actually going offline versus getting a new node id.

Growth in the number of nodes and percentage growth in utilization. Utilization is growing faster than new nodes being added to the grid :partying_face:

I bet that utilization growth is due to zonaris.

Hi everyone, back again with Grid Stats. This week, I’ve removed the “missing in action” nodes count. I found that the number was suggesting that the number of nodes on the grid was shrinking, when it actually wasn’t. I think this could be caused by node ids that get quickly replaced for some reason and are effectively duplicates. It’s possible that some of these get picked up in the new node count too, as I count any node ids that were updated in the last 24 hours.

I’ll be looking for ways to further refine the data input, algorithms, and also the output automation going foward.

Hey everybody,

After a little holiday break from the grid stats last week, we’re back with one last report for 2022 :partying_face:

Taking a quick peek back to my first update that included utilization numbers, back at the end of August, we can see that utilization in every category except HDD has increased substantially:

Cores: 479 -> 1150 (+140%)
RAM: 1191 GB -> 2465 GB (+107%)
SSD: 23,459 GB -> 41,136 GB (+75%)
HDD: 2362 GB -> 2362 GB

Even with the growth of the Grid, we have seen utilization growth outpace it such that total utilization has also increased in percentage terms, though a bit less dramatically than the absolute numbers. Here’s to another year of growth for ThreeFold in 2023 :clinking_glasses:
