Hey Developers — it’s now easier than ever to start your own node on the IoTeX Mainnet! Today we are launching Node Smart Monitoring to go along with our previously released Node One-line Upgrades, which make it simple to launch, upgrade, and monitor your IoTeX node.

In this blog, we share the process of using our node upgrade/monitoring tool. Follow along with our simple instructions on Github.

Node One-line Upgrades

Make sure you have $IOTEX_HOME already set up, and all the files (e.g., configs, dbs) are placed in the right locations (refer to the Join Mainnet Beta section).

To upgrade your Mainnet node with one line, use the following command. By default, it will upgrade to latest mainnet version:

sudo bash # If your docker requires root privilege
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iotexproject/iotex-bootstrap/master/scripts/setup_fullnode.sh)

To upgrade a Testnet node, just add testnet to the end of the command.

sudo bash # If your docker requires root privilege
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iotexproject/iotex-bootstrap/master/scripts/setup_fullnode.

Node Smart Monitoring

In addition to the one-line IoTeX node upgrader, we have added Node Smart Monitoring soyou easily monitor your node status. You can enable it by entering `Y` to the above question when you are following the upgrader instructions (by default this feature is turned off):

As shown below, after turning on smart monitoring you will see the monitor is up running.

To view monitoring metrics, access the Grafana Dashboard on your http://localhost:3000 by entering your default username and password shown in the instructions. Happy monitoring!
