The status of network participants serves as a monitoring metric for the activity and functionality of the network members.
The status, which can be either ‘active’ or ‘inactive,’ is derived from the operator’s attendance of duties and refers to their status within the ssv network, not the beacon chain.
All participants are regarded as “active” unless the cases below apply:
- Validator - its operators carried out no duties in the last 2 epochs.
- Operator - has not carried out any duties for the previous 2 epochs for the majority of his validators.
