Low storage usage

If he says “not growing very long time” and also says “operating since july” we should belive it.

My nodes get a fresh 20gb data every day since a week.

It should be something else.

@Saintdogz please check your docker logs (storagenodes logs basically). Do you have any upload/download in the logs? Do you see any error message?

Okay but how much deletions also take place? This could make effective ingress way lower than that ^^
I don’t have figures coz’ I’m not monitoring my nodes with precise tools, but I see there are lots of deletes these days.

yeah may 7TB node got as many deletes as ingress over the last 6 hours and often it’s even more deletes than ingress…

Srsly Kevin?

I know you an expert in this topic, and I belive you, but how come?

My old little shitty crapp RPI4 never had a less than 0 netto income. Gimme a sec, I make a daily netto income graph

Actually I never had such a good days like in the past 2 weeks

But definetley we just can’t say that: my node are not getting any data “long long time ago”. The guy should have an other issue.

Well good for you then.
My node had a net sum of 1GB over the last 24 hours:

But not every day is like that, I do get a little bit of surplus but it’s not much. at least not on this >20months old node.
On the other, smaller nodes, I do get more surplus.

I never speculated about his issue. Just confirmed that there are lots of deletes these past weeks.

I usually do not ask that, but what is your success rate?

Thanks for taking it seriously.

Yes logs are fine, I am sending and receiving. Everything works fine.

I have a same kind of issue, not getting enough data despite of good setup which is running flawlessly.
SIA node on the same network and with a similar pricing is doing nearly 3 times better right now. It used to be the other way around. I’m not saying SIA is doing good - it’s not. I am saying, Storj is doing horrible and I am yet to find out why.


Lack of customers I guess.


Hello @zolbarna,

What is the software than you use for your graph ?
I use DB Browser for SQLite but your graph is better mine

That’s grafana with a prometheus database

Just wanted to let you know that I am stopping my nodes next month.
This is not worth it for me to keep my synology disk drives spinning 0/24 and my cache drives working 0/24.
My nodes work fine.
I have 2 nodes.
Synology has 5tb,
Raspberry has 2tb,
Always updated nodes to latest version, im connected to the network, everything works fine and i have 0/24 uptime with gigabit internet.
I am stuck at 1.5tb disk space used and drives are not really being filled up.
My last payment was in 2020 December.

It was a great Journey, I am keeping my nodes online until i get my next/last payment, then il transition to something more useful.



Hi @Saintdogz,
If you GE from the satellites available (to recover held back amount), then delete the data from the other satellites (to get disqualified) - you have no way to earn more StorJ so the final payout should be sent next month.

That is really a bad and sad result. Storj needs more customers. Everything has gotten really quiet…
But maybe you wanna keep going for a bit as

If this does not result in a visible increase of usage or at least awareness so there is hope for more customers then it looks really really bad.


I know how the system works.
I just want to keep it active as my final “contribution” to the network.

Also make sure it’s updated to the latest version. If your node two versions behind it will not receive any ingress.

From reading your post it sounded, to me, like you were going to wait for a payment and then shutdown the node without GE. If you’re going to GE then that will obviously help the network, rather than forcing a lot of repair traffic. Thanks for your contribution.

After turning on zkSync, how long do i need to wait to see Storj in my wallet?

If everything is set up correctly, you should see Storj in your wallet within next payment round, which will take place at some point in the comming 15 days (roughly).

We get paid once a month, during the first 2 weeks of the month (if the minimum threshold is reached, or if zkSync is enabled).


Thanks for the quick reply
