Hey everyone -
I set up a MN last night (very exciting!) and it shows up in "darkcoind masternode list" both on the server and locally in the QT debug console. However, after reading Monitor NM status using Uptime Robot / free I notice it does not show up on the lists:

http://drk.poolhash.org/poolhashrate/blocks/masterstatus.txt
http://drk.poolhash.org/poolhashrate/blocks/masterpaystatus.txt

(sorry, the forum won't let me post links, so I hope you know what I'm talking about)
--- fixed (vertoe) ---

I wrote a script to monitor those pages and I realize that they seem not to be changing at all - i.e. not only is my address never showing up, but the pages aren't updating with anything, at least in the last few hours. I expect that they would change at least periodically, to increment the pay for the selected MN when a new block is found.

Are those files still considered valid for monitoring, or are they in a temporary frozen state? Thanks to anyone that has any information!

Sorry for your inconvenience.
one of scripts had a error(one of server was rebooted and nginx not started)

fixed.
time to make a alarm script and page to check update time.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
I just have another question regarding the format of masterstatus.txt

Here's an example line from a random address:
XaiLY9M9PjhYg26jzxuMhLxKkMdeZuG9yv:6:15

Is the second field the number of confirmations (i.e. I needed 6 confirmations that I sent 1000 DRK to the masternode address 0)?
Is the third field the total number of payments since the MN was born, or is it a number that resets periodically?

Thanks for providing those status files chaeplin, they are very handy for monitoring.
