When you finish the Windows installation for your Storage Node, a Windows shortcut will automatically be created that will open the Storage Node Operator Dashboard in your web browser.
You can also access the dashboard by opening the following URL in your web browser:
Satellites act as the mediator between clients (people up- and downloading data) and Storage Node Operators (people storing data). Satellites facilitate the storage interaction and decide which storage nodes will store which pieces. Storage Nodes currently work with three Tardigrade satellites - US Central 1, Europe South 1, and Asia East 1. Usage can be viewed for each specific Satellite or for all Satellites.
Bandwidth Used This Month
The amount of total bandwidth you've provided to the network since the beginning of the current period.
Normal / Repair / Audit
Normal bandwidth is the bandwidth a Storage Node uses so customers can download their data, for which a Storage Node Operator is paid $20/TB.
Repair bandwidth is the bandwidth usage resulting from regenerating a bad Storage Node's deleted data that is part of the repair process, for which a Storage Node Operator sending the data to new nodes is paid $10/TB.
Audit bandwidth is the data downloaded from the Storage Node, which the Satellite uses to measure file durability and Node reputation.
Egress is the data the customer downloads from the network. Ingress is the data the network uploads to a Storage Node.
Disk Space Used This Month
The amount of total disk space used on a storage node in the current monthly period, for which a storage node is paid $1.50/TB.
Disk Space Remaining
The amount of disk space available to use by the network for the remaining month.
Uptime checks occur to make sure a Storage Node is still online. This is the percentage of uptime checks a Storage Node has passed.
Audit checks occur to make sure the data sent to a Storage Node is still held on the node and intact. This is the percentage of audit checks a storage node has passed.
