Over the past weeks and months the idea of keeping tabs on the contents of the transparency log kept spooking around in my mind. After diving into Go and a few attempts that failed due to over-engineering, I decided to built a monitoring system on top of Grafana. The data is fed into a PostgreSQL database after having been crawled and pre-processed by Rekor.
This link gives you a first look at a public analytics dashboard of Rekor: https://rekor-monitor.flxw.de/public-dashboards/5a433a2a9b0a42859b884f1ec4e8862c
I will expand this post in the future with architecture diagrams, monitoring mechanisms and design decisions.
