Hi everyone, we are excited to inform you that we have been working on performance improvement in our network. One area that we have been exploring is UDP based transport protocols. For example, We have done some internal testing and have seen some good result from QUIC protocol.
Now we would like to gather more realistic performance metrics with UDP based protocols. In order to do that, we want to ask you, our storage node operators, to update your port-forwarding rules to also include UDP traffic.
If you are running your node using Docker, please make sure to also change
-p <host-port>:<container-port>/tcp -p <host-port>:<container-port>/udp.
Once you have set it up for UDP traffic, you can use our connect-test tool to verify the setup.
You can install our
connect-test tool by running below command in your terminal:
# Please make sure you have `go` installed on your machine first. git clone https://github.com/storj/storj.git storj cd storj go install ./cmd/connect-test/...
Thank you for your cooperation and patience with us.
Have a nice day!
