First off, I would like to thank APAsia.tech, DL, and DAOStreet for everything they have done and are doing for the BitShares community. These guys are top-notch supporters and deserve equal support from the BitShares community.

I've been looking forward to this WP for quite some time and know this will be put to great use. As we can see above, DL is a dedicated professional with extensive networking knowledge which shouldn't be lost due to lack of funding. We have an extensive war chest and it would be a shame if his efforts are destroyed.

I will be voting for this once it goes live.

I'm glad to see all the community engagement regarding this project.  Clearly there are a lot of hardworking and intelligent people on this platform and it's starting to show with the new blood coming to worker proposals.  I agree we do have a great opportunity here to create a positive feedback loop.  Valuable and productive workers --> network expansion to greater audience --> fine tuning fee structure and earning more for community treasury --> even more productive workers.

I look forward to seeing this particular proposal live on chain and supported.  Not to mention Digital Lucifer getting the recognition and validation for all of his hard work.

Many thanks Fav!

Fact is that Fav's vote was the one making Worker having more than enough votes to start tomorrow, I would like to appreciate time and trust you've shown us and announce that we are starting today (even WP starts tomorrow) with Node upgrade/management and will start adding them to the wallet, one at the time how we get it fully prepared for Public API use.

Many thanks to everyone one more time!

Infrastructure update 11.09.2018

- Nodes has been added to wallet.bitshares.org (by pull request on github in develop branch)

check compare https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-ui/compare/develop...dls-cipher:patch-1?diff=split

Pull request is here: https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-ui/pull/1844

- Currently there is 21 provisioned node. Here is the full list:

1. status200.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
2. new-york.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
3. australia.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
4. dallas.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
5. chicago.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
6. atlanta.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
7. us-la.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
8. japan.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
9. france.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
10. england.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL
11. holland.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL

19. paris7.daostreet.com - OK - Premium SSL - DNS Propagating
20. frankfurt8.daostreet.com - OK - Premium SSL
21. testnet.bitshares.apasia.tech - OK - Premium SSL

LEGEND:
GREEN - 100% operational
ORANGE - up to 24 hours issue
RED - up to 72 hours issue

- Structure

Currently status200 is biggest node with largest bandwidth included in the package. We are using that node with automatic backup script to stop one time a week, provide fresh backup of 'witness_node' software with fully synced blockchain and using simple .sh scripts are provisioning that node to all others.

Scripts can be inspected here https://github.com/dls-cipher/pre-compiled-witness_node
(its pretty lame and dirty bash scripting with plans to be polished, even more interactive as setup in shell)

Status can be checked for currently running nodes within our website https://status.apasia.tech

There is more than 21 listed on status page, since we are adding them as we provision them, to keep better track of hours towards invoicing.

All trackers are reseted and starting from today.

- Overview

1. We had to turn OFF most of the daostreet nodes in order to cut cost with AWS of 1800-2000$ a month for just 9 VPS instances.
2. For any questions please reply here or find me in telegram @murda_ra

- Escrow partner is invoiced for 1-time setup (reimbursement fees), while on-going invoices (cost of the nodes) will be delivered by 20. September.


NOTICE: If dallas/testnet node shows strange behavior please report it asap. Those 2 are sitting on one instance currently running multi websocket with multi-domain nginx configuration.


Cheers.

Worker Update
« Reply #22 on: December 19, 2018, 04:30:01 pm »
Dear BitShares,

It's been amazing year since we've placed our first node around the ecosystem, and its been 4 months ever since Flash Infrastructure Worker was approved.

- Currently there is 24 operational nodes, submitted to Github and available for check at https://status.apasia.tech

- Overall uptime, with all what happened recently is still over 90% (Worker intent and warranty was 80%)

- When we first time introduced worker, 26 nodes at the time were having a cost of $3,380.00. Over the past 4 months we reduced the monthly costs to roughly $1,700.00 with 24 provisioned and operational nodes.


- Currently as Master node for sync of all others we are using status200.bitshares.apasia.tech. Node is offline every Sunday UTC 00:00 AM till 01:30 AM for process of backing up and packing for download/distribution.

- Some of the nodes are having very high traffic (3-5TB a month), while most of them usually spend 0.5 TB - 2 TB.

- Scripts used for backing up and provisioning to other nodes is available at my repo on Github

- Detailed accounting, invoices and reporting is available at Escrow reporting on BBF website

Roadmap for remaining of this worker: Adding ES nodes to the worker + Dedicated server in Thailand + addition of Testnet node in Asia and new Mainnet node in Slovenia.

I personally hope you've been enjoying good connectivity and availability with this worker.
If we decide to extend/renew the worker, for the next run we would offer 12 months worker and wrap all nodes under the *.bitshares.org sub-domain.
Reminder: This is "no management fee" worker. It's done for the better, more stable and highly available BitShares!

Chee®s

Excellent work so far.

Additional ES nodes (in US or China) would be great for the community. Will definately be voting for the replacement worker

Many thanks! Goal for ES is to make collaboration with people that already own/run ES and wrap it under this worker. My knowledge on Kibana/ES is slim2none, but with the expertise of others, we can mix our efforts to enable more for the clients/ecosystem, and in the meantime cut the costs of same individuals who are currently running ES nodes. In that manner, I would be available for regular management of the nodes (reboot, start, stop, inspect log, manage), while others would be free just to use data visualization and develop it to be better.

Anyway, to create less confusion, will create new thread for this discussion. How I believe, Ryan R. Fox, Alfredo Garcia and yourself are running ES nodes atm, US and EU.

Thank you! We can make together BitShares to be greater than ever with mixed/combined efforts and support, I'm 100% sure.

Chee®s!
