Probably pretty spelled out in the subject, but I’m curious if anyone knows if when you have multiple nodes that are treated as “one” behind the same /24 subnet, if as the individuals fill up does the traffic of new storage shift over to the remaining at the same total rate? In my current situation, I’ve got 3 nodes (2TB/2TB/1TB) and 2 are already full. For simplicity sake lets ignore racing for pieces/vetting status and assume that if my IP got 3 storage requests that they would have been split across the 3 nodes. Now that 2 nodes are full, if 3 requests were to be sent to my IP do the satellites know that two are full and would request all 3 from the 3rd node?
In short, trying to figure out if there are diminishing returns to having multiple smaller nodes (because that’s what I’ve got available for drives) vs. having a larger node. In theory I’m better covered with the multiple smaller drives as the most likely problem of a single drive failure won’t rob me of as much stored data, although I could still have a catastrophic event that could strike all 3 drives simultaneously. But does this spread protection come with a later cost of slower incoming storage requests once nodes start to fill up?
