IPFS monitoring options

Using the webui https://github.com/ipfs/webui seems using the webui can the following be accessed :

  • the number of connected nodes ?
  • the hash values stored on each node ?
  • IP address of machine participating in network ?

And/or can this data be access via the IPFS cli ?

  • number of connected nodes: ipfs swarm peers | wc -l
  • I don’t know right now.
  • check ipfs id
