I am running a LN node. Set up monitoring to collect stats. Now i am wondering, how can i get correct conclusions about what collected information actually is.
There are ~8350 nodes over there, my node according to 1ml.com is ~#450 in channel/capacity rank. so we can assume that i am average active node i think. so then 8350*14=116900 settled forwards over network?. i am not sure what this number mean and can we compare this to 409570 on-chain transactions for last 24 hours.
I had also some 2-3 offchain pay and 1 paid invoice which was my own node made, do i need to add the to calculation above or not?
If this completely incorrect way to count and compare transactions, please describe a correct one.
