I'm thinking on how to implement a P2P messaging platform using Whisper (https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/Whisper), but before of starting designing a protocol on top of it and work on its implementation, I have some questions about the protocol itself and on the project status:

  • Do you know if it's suitable for production environment?
  • Is there a web service that provides stats about Whisper nodes, such as network coverage, network load, average latency, etc?

Thanks.

Do you know if it's suitable for production environment?

AFAIK it is still in PoC (Proof of Concept) phase - so I would say no

Is there a web service that provides stats about Whisper nodes, such as network coverage, network load, average latency, etc?

I am not aware of any web service that fulfills your criteria

Depending on what you want to do you might also want to look into PSS - perhaps you do not need the darkness that whisper focuses on in your use-case so PSS might be an option.
