Introduction

Blocktorch is an end-to-end observability platform designed specifically for web3 services and products. We aim at taking away the complexity of web3 data and enabling you to take action.
Blocktorch offers a comprehensive solution for developing, monitoring, troubleshooting, and optimizing decentralized services and applications end-2-end, making it easier for engineering teams to ship and maintain high-quality dApps.
Key features of Blocktorch include:
  • Real-time monitoring of smart contract events, state variables and transaction data
  • Alerting and notification systems for proactive issue detection
  • Log analysis and search functionality for efficient troubleshooting
  • Customizable dashboards and visualizations for data-driven decision-making
  • Collaboration on Smart Contract development and dApp monitoring
Blocktorch's architecture with supported sources and functionalities

"Blocktorch is the best in class observability platform in web3. The hollistic approach to the platform makes it a single source of truth for the engineering team"


Introducing observability best practices has multiple advantages

  • Boosting engineering productivity with observability
    Blocktorch's end-to-end observability platform enables you and your engineering team to be more productive by streamlining the monitoring and management of dApps. With Blocktorch, you can:
    1. 1.
      Quickly identify and resolve issues, minimizing downtime and ensuring a consistent user experience
    2. 2.
      Focus on core development tasks, rather than spending time on custom monitoring and troubleshooting solutions
    3. 3.
      Collaborate more effectively, using data-driven insights to drive decision-making and prioritize improvements
  • Taking data-driven product & engineering decisions
    Blocktorch helps you and your engineering team to make data-driven decisions by providing a comprehensive view of your dApp's performance and health. You can leverage Blocktorch's insights to:
    1. 1.
      Optimize application and smart contract performance and resource usage
    2. 2.
      Identify and address performance bottlenecks
    3. 3.
      Allocate resources more effectively, based on real-time data and trends
  • Scaling dApps and ensuring great user experience
    As dApps scale and attract more users, maintaining a high level of performance and user experience becomes increasingly important. Blocktorch enables you to:
    1. 1.
      Monitor and maintain performance standards, even as user load increases
    2. 2.
      Proactively detect and resolve issues before they impact users
    3. 3.
      Ensure consistent user experience across different platforms and devices
    By offering a comprehensive observability solution tailored to the unique challenges of web3, Blocktorch empowers you and your engineering team to build and maintain high-quality decentralized applications that delight users and stand the test of time.
The challenge of observability in Web3 Decentralized applications (dApps) operate on distributed networks, relying on smart contracts and blockchain technology, with no single entity in control. These unique features present new challenges when it comes to observability:
  • Data Fragmentation: Data generated by dApps is often dispersed across multiple nodes and platforms, making it difficult to collect, analyze, and understand the overall system state.
  • Error Handling: Identifying and diagnosing errors in smart contracts can be time-consuming, as the immutability of blockchain technology prevents traditional debugging techniques.
  • Performance Monitoring: Ensuring optimal performance and user experience in dApps is crucial, but the decentralized nature of these systems complicates the process of monitoring and optimizing them.
"A truly decentralized system is one where no single entity has control."
