3.3 Monitor a peer

In this section, we will monitor the behaviour of our peer’s DHT service with respect to a specific key. First we will start GNUnet and then start the DHT service and use the DHT monitor tool to monitor the PUT and GET commands we issue ussing the gnunet-dht-put and gnunet-dht-get commands. Using the “monitor” line given below, you can observe the behavior of your own peer’s DHT with respect to the specified KEY:

# start gnunet with all default services:
$ gnunet-arm -c ~/peer1.conf -s
# start DHT service:
$ gnunet-arm -c ~/peer1.conf -i dht
$ cd ~/gnunet/src/dht;
$ ./gnunet-dht-monitor -c ~/peer1.conf -k KEY

Now open a separate terminal and change again to the gnunet/src/dht directory:

$ cd ~/gnunet/src/dht
# put VALUE under KEY in the DHT:
$ ./gnunet-dht-put -c ~/peer1.conf -k KEY -d VALUE
# get key KEY from the DHT:
$ ./gnunet/src/dht/gnunet-dht-get -c ~/peer1.conf -k KEY
# print statistics about current GNUnet state:
$ gnunet-statistics -c ~/peer1.conf
# print statistics about DHT service:
$ gnunet-statistics -c ~/peer1.conf -s dht
