The operator performance metric serves as a technical scoring system for operators in the ssv network.
The performance score is derived from the attendance/completion of operator duties in the consensus layer of the network (signing decided messages with the rest of the validator's operators cluster). It’s calculated by the percentage of attended duties within a specific time frame.
Performance scoring can be segmented by macro (operator) and micro (validator) levels - a user can see the operator’s performance score for each validator or across all of their validators.
e.g. Alice the operator missed 24 duties in the last 24 hours for validator #1, while missing only 12 duties in the same time-frame for validator #2, will show the following 24 hours performance scoring:
- Performance per validator #1 (micro) - 90% ((240-24)/240)
- Performance per validator #2 (micro) - 95% ((240-12)/240)
- Performance of Alice (macro) - 92.5% (((240 * (# of validators) - 36)) / (240 * (# of validators)
Operator's scores and performance could be viewed in corresponding operator pages and also per each validator via our explorer:
