Move databases on Windows storagenode

Hi guys.
So, I troubleshooted a lot on one of my nodes, and disk activity is always at 100%. The HDD just can´t keep up with the demand (:P) it´s a WD Blue but it gets almost occupied writing in databases.
Can I move the databases to my quicker system drive?
If so, how?

Yes, you can.

  1. Stop the storagenode
  2. Move databases to a new place (C:\storagenode\cache\ for example)
  3. Add a new path to databases to the storage2.database-dir: option:
storage2.database-dir: C:\storagenode\cache\
  1. Save the config
  2. Start the storagenode
  3. Check that you do not have a new databases in a old place and the dashboard shows a correct numbers.

However, keep in mind - you will introduce a new point of failure.


Huge improvement on Dashboard loading, and it seems a few less “context cancelled”.
I’ll keep monitoring it. Thank you.
