Ethstats For Ethereum Private


What are Ethstats, you may ask?


Ethereum Network Stats. This is a visual interface for tracking ethereum network status. It uses WebSockets to receive stats from running nodes and output them through an angular interface. It is the front-end implementation for eth-net-intelligence-api.
How do I get it?

For every ethereum private network created, an ethstats vm will be launched and owned by the chain.

Ethstats URL can be reached by clicking on the Block height of the node dashboard. or from a link on the connect page, in the dashboard action menu:


What do the stats mean?

Last Block

This is the last block that was mined. On ethstats, it shows the time since something was mined.

A block is a collection of transactions. At time of writing, the last block is 3716787

Gas Limits

Gas is a measure of computational effort. It is the internal pricing for running a transaction or contract in Ethereum.

The gas system is not very different from the use of Kw for measuring electricity home use. One difference from actual energy market is that the originator of the transaction sets the price of gas, to which the miner can or not accept, this causes an emergence of a market around gas.

Best Block

This is a valid block with a chain that has the highest sum of work.


Difficulty is a measure of how difficult it is to find a hash below a given target. The difficulty dynamically adjusts so that on average one block is produced by the entire network every 12 seconds.
