I really like it, thanks for adding it!

Here a few points based on the current message:

Outdated data!

Onionoo seems to serve outdated data :( Last update was: Wed Oct 25 2017 04:44:20 GMT+0000 (UTC)
  • We know what "onionoo" is but the average atlas user might ask "What is onionoo and why should I care if it provides outdated data?"

how about something like

Outdated data!
Atlas currently displays Tor network data as of <timestamp> (x hours old).
(This should be a temporary problem, the responsible team has been notified.)

+actually setup checks to notify Karsten when onionoo is behind by >4 hours.

  • currently displayed timestamp: "Last update was: Wed Oct 25 2017 04:44:20 GMT+0000 (UTC)"
    "relays_published":"2017-10-25 04:00:00",
    "bridges_published":"2017-10-25 03:41:35",

Instead of displaying when it was last updated, show the relays published or bridges published timestamp (whatever is newer).

We don't expect this to happen that often anymore, and are working on new monitoring systems to keep an eye on Onionoo. I have updated the warning message to indicate what Onionoo is and you can see this in the screenshot above.

This is fixed in 753b0b5.
