For Storage Node Operators
webUI dashboard notification (outdated version)
On the storage node webUI dashboard you will see a notification if your storage node is running an outdated version. The first time you might be able to notice that will be the following release.
Bandwidth limits removed
Storage nodes don’t have a bandwidth limit anymore. We removed it from the CLI and webUI dashboard. The old configuration value has no effect anymore and the storage node will keep accepting uploads and deliver downloads.
Dashboard API Changed
The endpoints for the dashboard APIs changed. I have updated the guide: Storage node dashboard API (v0.35.5)
The gateway binary is now located in a separate repository and using libuplink. Please update your gateway version to the latest version. https://github.com/storj/gateway/releases
Easy Link Sharing Service
Check out the
uplink share command. It will print out a URL that you can send to your friends. Please don’t share it in public unless you understand the risks. If you do not restrict access, anyone with the link can upload files to your bucket. The owner of the bucket has to pay for all downloads.
You can now register without an auth key. After registration, you are required to add a payment method (credit card or $ 50 in STORJ). With a payment method in place, you can go ahead and create a project. We are starting with a project limit of 5 GB. We are aware that 5 GB is low. Increasing it is easier than decreasing it. On the satellite UI you will find a form to request a higher project limit. Please use it so that we can find out which project limit works best.
The download limit is based on allocated download traffic and not on settled download traffic. Downloading a 1 GB file will allocate 1.35 GB and settle up to 1.3 GB. You will notice different numbers on the satellite UI.
The used space limit will sync with the tally results every once in a while. For several hours, it may display an incorrect value and later correct it itself.
