      Description

      Story
      As a systems administrator responsible for solutions built on top of an Indy network, I want to be able to monitor the health of the network to ensure that my solutions will be reliable.

      As a steward, I want to be able to setup network maintenance without having to use my steward keys in a dangerous manner.

      Notes:

      • This user is not a steward on the network.
      • It is reasonable to require that this user has a trusted position on the network.
      • This user is very technical and motivated to build a monitoring system.
      • The monitoring system requires:
        • The information returned by validator-info across the various stewards, but today this information is only available to users with a steward role.
        • Other information that can be provided by querying the ledger. This does not require any changes.

      Acceptance Criteria

      • A non-steward role exists by which a trusted administrator can access validator-info across all stewards in a consensus pool.
      • This role is called "Network Monitor".
      • The only permissions this role has beyond an unprivileged user is to access validator-info.
      • A user can be assigned this role by a steward (no multi-signature necessary).
