We are turning on downtime suspension
in the next release, which is planned to be deployed January 11.
(Edit: We overlooked some remaining work with regards to displaying suspension information on the dashboard, and we definitely want to make sure nodes are aware that they are suspended. So, it’s looking like it may be later than January 11th, but most likely still early next year. I’m sure you all won’t mind waiting a bit longer for suspensions . Stay tuned!)
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.
