today I should receive a new CMR HDD which will be connected to a SATA port. The current drive is SMR USB3 but connected to USB2. That should bring a great boost to my node.
I intended to migrate data live with rsync but the drive is very slow and USB2 interface won’t help. The migration could last for weeks adding more load to the already overloaded drive.
So I’m evaluating if it’s better to shut down the node, transfer the old disk to my laptop which has USB3 and rsync to the new disk offline in order to speed up the process.
I’ve read something about containment mode and disqualification for being offline too long, so I were wondering if the containment mode has been implemented or not and which is the maximum time a node can stay offline before being disqualified.
