Hi All, I have a node that is only 500GB in size and the daily egress is about 34gb per day. This node earns about $20 per month which is WAY above others I have that have 10x the capacity. The node is about 2 years old and pretty much never down. At work I have a 15TB node at full capacity that’s just as old which pulls in about $50-60 per month with egress of 80gb per day.
Does anyone running multiple small nodes(500gb-1TB) under a single IP have any nodes with similar performance? I was going to start up another node under that ones same IP address but I’m weary of spoiling such a high performer. Wouldn’t it be great to have a bunch of 500GB nodes having that kind of egress?
if the node is full, then starting a new one shouldn’t impact egress rate of the other. Egress rates is dependent on data stored and as far as I know independent of number of nodes behind the same IP address.
But as you can see, my node has more income spread out over other satellites as well. It seems yours was filled up quickly by saltlake with no room left for other satellites after that. I think they may be rotating through which data to download and your node just got the bulk this month. Mine has always had free space, so it doesn’t really matter which data from which timeframe is downloaded for me. Even at $11-13 average you got very lucky with an only 500gb node though. I’d hang on to that if I were you.
