Local-first software is magical in that it almost always works — at least locally. With Actyx this is possible because Actyx is partition tolerant, i.e. a network issue does not immediately take everything down.
This also means that twins and applications aren't always in sync. And sometimes it can get a little tricky understanding where nodes stand with regard to synchronizing with each other.
That is why we are now releasing Offset Diagnostics in the Actyx Node Manager.
Actyx Node Manager 2.4.0 introduces two new features to help you better understand what is happening:
- Find out which event streams a node has synchronized, and up to where.
- Easily see how event synchronization is progressing in a swarm of nodes.
