MoodyBlues SDK For Rust

Intro

A tracer SDK for Overlord like consensus algorithm, helps you to debug or optimize the algorithm.

The consensus algorithm always plays with a distributed system, debugging or optimizing is so hard. If we can record events to describe what happens when consensus state changes, and then replay with a visualization dashboard, the debugging or optimizing would be easier.

Quick start

Let's starts with a dead simple trace. This example shows how to use the sdk for write the TracePoint in file with JSON format.

Cargo.toml

        self.round_id = 0;
        // create a trace point mark as starts with block
        trace::start_block(block_height);
    }

TODO for now, jump to trace.rs for more information. The API may be frequent changes before the first release version.
