From what I understand, until a node is vetted on a satellite (100 successful audits) it receives about 5% of the ingress traffic. However, let’s say I have a 100TB hard drive that is finished vetting on all the satellites but is only 500GB full. Would it be worthwhile to start vetting a second node on a much smaller, spare hard drive right away, or wait until the 100TB node is closer to being filled up?
Reason being, I’m not sure if the ingress traffic for non-vetted and vetted nodes is split, so would the non-vetted node take the ingress that would otherwise go to the vetted node? Or would the netted node take most of the ingress traffic leaving even a completely abysmal percentage for the non-vetted node?
The reason I’m asking this is even if the 100TB hard drive is nowhere near full, my intuition says it’s a good idea to start vetting a second node should the first one ever get DQ’ed, at least you have another node that is fully vetted and once you get a replacement for the big hard drive, can start getting filled up much sooner.
Does the same subnet share vetted and non-vetted ingress traffic? Or are those separate and as such, it’d be most affective to always have a node vetting (if you have the spare hard drives) to get the most out of a /24 subnet ingress?
