The mean weight of all blocks created that day. Weight is a dimensionless measure of a block’s “size”. It is only applicable for chains that use SegWit (segregated witness).
|BlkWghtMean||Blockchain / ledger||Blocks||Mean||Weight||1 day|
Only mainchain (non-orphaned/uncles) blocks are counted.
For chains that use median time, the day is defined using it, otherwise, it’s defined using the block’s timestamps.
This metric is only available for assets that support SegWit.
Released in the XXX release of NDP
Block weight is useful to determine how used a chain is. If the mean block weight is close to the maximum block weight possible, then the chain is close to 100% utilization.
