Hi all,


Last week I got a list of endpoints from one colleague and it turned out that many were dead so I hacked up a little service check [1] with Github-Actions (and our own sparql-integrate tool[2]) . And then another colleague told my of the rather recent effort that happened here.


Openlink's LODCloud_SPARQL_Endpoints.ttl [3] looks looks very good!


What I can contribute is a proof-of-concept of a completely self-contained SPARQL-based service monitoring setup [1] where Github does all the work of service checking, where everyone can clone the repo, adjust the queries and get whatever RDF out what they use case(s) demand. Right now I only added online/offline checking, but in principle one can also just query the endpoints for features and emit service descriptions or query for dataset metrics and emit void.


Of course there are resource limitations, Github only allows 1000 requests per hour, the workflow time is limited, and the virtual instances only have 2 CPUs.


Cheers,

Claus
