So I have been thinking about this and I really dont like the idea of a Discolification of a storj node due to bad performance and would suggest to the storj team an amendment to this idea. The Idea come to me during a RAID controller failer on my server. I retained the data on the disks however, my Node has been on and offline for a while over the last few days. At the moemnt I am aware that there is no discolification enabled however, If there was I would probably be taken offline and this got me thinking… Though i was having trouble I would not like to create the storj node from scratch and I would propose 3 levels of operation for a storj node with no disqualifications at all…This will allow the storj operator time to get his node online and working to a level that is specified…
This is what I thought…
Fully Operatinal state
Fully Operatinal state 100%-95% operation uptime per month… node fully working reciving and sending data.
Degradation State 94%-80% operation uptime per month… node not reciving any more data however is still able to send data.
Recovery State 79%- operation uptime per month… node starts to “safly sends its data back into” the network.
the Thrird state is almost a discolification state however, if the operator has some unforseen issues with hardware power etc and know they will recover the node they have the option of keeping the node online until it gets a seffitiant rating.
Kind Regards Simon
