Monitor your IPFS files with Netdata


What is IPFS?

IPFS is a closely-connected protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data across a distributed filesystem. Netdata is an open-source monitoring agent designed for real-time visual anomaly detection. If you're using IPFS to store or share data, you can use Netdata's pre-built integration with IPFS to monitor and troubleshoot bandwith, peer health, and more.
