We are turning on downtime suspension in the March 22, 2021 release.
What this means for you:
Once your node has accumulated 30 days of audit history, it will be eligible for evaluation.
After this point, if its online score is found to be below a given threshold (currently 0.6), it will be suspended.
That means no further uploads, and pieces might be repaired off the node. Downloads requests will still occur as long as the satellite has been able to contact it within the last 4 hours.
Suspended nodes can still come back. The node will continue to be audited, and once the online score returns to the acceptable range, it will no longer be suspended.
See the design section of this document for more info: https://github.com/storj/storj/blob/e24262c2c9d7b2d48897d0de767f8012d95c444c/docs/blueprints/storage-node-downtime-tracking-with-audits.md
Note that we will NOT be turning on disqualification for downtime at this time.
