since some time, I’m having thousands of lines in my firewall log, of the machine on which my nodes run, trying to connect 50 to 100 times per second to 184.108.40.206 on (remote) port UDP/9000
I found out that this IP refers to collectora.storj.io, so the telemetry collector.
Is it a requirement for a node to operate to be able to connect to collectora.storj.io on UDP/9000 ?
if so, can it be added and described in the documentation?
it seems to be disabled in my config, but still trying to send telemetry?
# address to send telemetry to # metrics.addr: collectora.storj.io:9000 ... # how frequently to send up telemetry # metrics.interval: 1m0s
P.S. My 2 nodes are working, getting data, audits at 100% and so on (so it all looks healthy)
