How slow can a graceful exit be?

Hi *,

I need to perform a rather long maintenance on a storj node that offered 1TB of space for the last 18 months.

So I initiated a graceful exit (because, you know, reputation is key) one week ago and after 2~3 days, saltlake, asia-east-1, us-central-1 and europe-north-1 completed the exit (Completion Receipt received), but europe-west-1 is really lagging behind and barely made it to 1/3 of the job.

Is there a good reason for this ?

Sorry to ask an obvious question, but could it be that you have significantly more data from Europe-west-1?

you can check how much space is used in the web dashboard.
my node which should be somewhere around the max say it has 1TB for eu west.

i think you can go into the payout, and because the payout from the past month or further back will show much data you get paid for storing, then you can see if this is infact due to the satellite storing more data…

if it doesn’t have much data it might also not really matter to much since you are killing the node anyways…

It might hardly move for multiple days and then suddenly finish. Not all pieces get uploaded, only the ones close to the repair threshold.
But I don’t know why eu-west-1 would be a lot slower (unless it has more data)

Makes no sense. Graceful exit = 0 reputation

Well I respect him :smiley: So good reputation :wink:

But could have asked before starting GE. Can’t stop it now anyway.

Well, based on the payout numbers this node had equal usage in us-central-1 and europe-west-1. But somehow US managed to confirm GE completion way faster.
