Changelog v1.50.4

There is a config option for the check interval. By default it is 15 minutes. You could set that to 12 hours. Now if you start 2 nodes at the same time they would still update at the same time. Just restart one of them 12 hours later and that node should keep its offset trough multiple updates. So if your system never stops it should update both nodes with 12 hours difference even halve a year later.

Yes me. Issue is atime. Just disable it and the SMR drive will finish the filewalker as fast as any other drive.


So I gave the new docker image a go on my less valuable node. Everything seems to have worked. I ran it with the 5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5 tag and it started fine. Following the logs it appears to have started, then almost immediately stopped and restarted. I am assuming it did the update at this time. Node is now running v1.50.4.

(please don’t shame me for my ancient kernel)

Should I no longer have watchtower monitor this node, or is leaving it under watchtowers watch okay?

Quite a bit confusing and strange, that there is no clear statement of the storjlings… Asking for testing support, but limiting testing users to those, who are hardcore users. ^^

I would expect something like this:

docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5

docker stop -t 300 sn1

docker rm sn1

docker run -d --restart unless-stopped --stop-timeout 300 \
    -p 28967:28967/tcp \
    -p 28967:28967/udp \
    -p \
    -e WALLET="xxx" \
    -e EMAIL="" \
    -e ADDRESS="xxx: 28967" \
    --mount type=bind,source="<identity-dir>",destination=/app/identity \
    --mount type=bind,source="<storage-dir>",destination=/app/config \
    --mount type=bind,source="<db-dir>",destination=/app/dbs \
    --name sn1 storjlabs/storagenode:5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5

Is that something with what a noob like me can work with?
Is that what is expected to be tested and consequently watch the logs after restart?

Sounds like a solution. Is this configuration option documented?

Yes, that is all you need to do. You can actually skip the docker pull step if you want, as docker will pull the image itself when it doesn’t find it on the system. Pulling it first might save a few seconds of downtime though.

Yes you can find it here: Please join our public test network
In your case you would need the oposit direction. You want to increase it. In the linked thread the idea was to decrease the interval for faster updates.

for those interested.

i did the docker pull command which is.
docker pull storjlabs/storagenode:5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5

and then i did my docker run command which looks something like this.

docker run -d -e RUN_PARAMS="--filestore.write-buffer-size 4096kiB --pieces.write-prealloc-size 4096kiB" -d --restart unless-stopped --stop-timeout 300 -p -p \
#--log-opt max-size=1m \
-p -e WALLET="0x111111111111111111111" \
-e EMAIL="" -e ADDRESS="global.ip.inet:28967" \
-e STORAGE="4TB" --mount type=bind,source="/sn3/id-sn3",destination=/app/identity \
--mount type=bind,source="/sn3/storj",destination=/app/config --name sn3 storjlabs/storagenode:5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5

note the storjlabs/storagenode:5f2777af9-v1.50.4-go1.17.5 at the end of the command.
incase anyone was confused… looks at bivvo

the node seemed to start up just fine, but after running a brief moment it stopped.
with this… which is most likely cause because i don’t run the automatic storagenode updater stuff nor watchtower. @littleskunk

going to launch the node back up on the latest image
let me know if there is anything else i should do.

let the script run as mentioned below 5mins ago - and it works for me.
so far (Debian bullseye on RPi4B).

Me, too.

Your NodeIDs are so close?
I have three docker nodes, only one updated to the latest version so far with this image. Even Windows node still not updated.

tried to relaunch the node, it just stopped again…
near instantly…

i’m on proxmox debian 5.13 running in containers.

Could you please describe more details, what’s that mean?
Do you use docker or LXC?
If LXC, the Debian 5.13 does not supported anymore, accordingly their documentation: Linux Container - Proxmox VE
Do you may be mean the kernel version?

I’ve got 16 nodes. This means the jump from 10% to 25% will likely cover 3 of them, or maybe more.

> table(replicate(10000, {x <- runif(16); sum(x > 0.1 & x < 0.25)}))

   0    1    2    3    4    5    6    7    8 
 727 2129 2830 2258 1246  574  187   40    9

So it was published, but not documented. Well, whatever, will try.

And all of them uses the same disk?

yeah its the most recent kernel version and the latest proxmox. 7.1
i use LXC containers and inside those i got docker :smiley:
its not a particularly elegant, but everything is updated to the most recent and has been working without a problem thus far.

clearly my issues relates to that the node shut down because it couldn’t get a connection to the updater.

the containers are also debian, liked to keep it so that the commands and everything was the same, because i was new at linux and had trouble enough as it was lol

so long storj short,

yes. :smiley:

One node is separate, but the 15 of them share two drives.

Before you say: «one node per drive» I say: «partial graceful exit».

I knew your answer beforehand, so no - my answer is not what you already know. :slight_smile:

@Toyoo then you forced to use this suggestion:

For everyone who read this:
Yes, the one node per one disk, this suggestion will not change. This is for to do not have problems with filewalker (and many others, like slow on upload and download and thus more low success rate) and to do not have problems with updates like @Toyoo have.
And using several nodes per one disk is not ok, please do not reproduce. :slight_smile:
Our suggestions are based on experience, so better to follow them. They are not mandatory, but you at least know why.


Well, I can also hack the source code. Same thing, because unless the suggestion is documented, I cannot really depend on it without some customization work. Or, even, I can, but you will expect me to fix it again when you change your mind.

From my point of view this thread started nicely: Storj asks people to test code in various conditions. Sure, why not, that’s a great idea. Apparently though, my conditions are outside of the parameters Storj Labs expected. So, kinda disappointed, because I’ve already managed to work around watchtower, now this workaround becomes useless. I mean, why Storj asks to test code in various conditions if then they don’t accept the variety of conditions?

I recall Storj Labs asking what would make professional sysadmins set up nodes. Not doing stuff like this would be a nice first step. Storage is a low-margin business, and this ought to be additional billable work for them.

And, for everyone else who read this, I’ll just link to my previous post on large number of small nodes: Multiple Nodes per HDD to lower impact of node disqualification? - #8 by Toyoo

Yes, this solution has been implemented with expectation to follow our recommendations.
Your setup cannot be called standard, I think you would agree.
And yes, it’s not designed for “professional usage”, where you need to hack a code to make it work in edge case like yours.
We explicitly mention everywhere - “the one node per one disk”, so why do you expect the including to consideration of all setups which breaks this?

But it’s nice that you revealed this problem too. However I do not expect that it would be adapted though, sorry about this! But at least I know the workaround if someone follow your example.
