New node 5 GB ingress per day

Of course this node is not fully vetted yet. It gets around 5 GB per day right now.
According to the papers an unvetted node receives 5% traffic.
Doing the math that would mean the node would receive 100 GB per day if it was already vetted?

Is that correct or am I missing something?

Just to clarify, the vetting process is on a per satellite basis, so your node will most likely finish vetting by the satellite(s) with the most traffic first. Last node I started, it took about 10-15 days to fully vet on what ever satellite was most active at the time, then around day 20-25 a couple more finished, and then finally around day 30-35 it finished on the newly shutdown Stefan-benten satellite since it wasnâ€™t handling much traffic.

So if you think about it, if youâ€™ve finished vetting on the satellite with the highest traffic at the moment, then youâ€™re node would be eligible for 100% of that satelliteâ€™s traffic.

Looking at my fully vetted nodes, Iâ€™ve been averaging about 14-15GB of ingress total per day. Itâ€™s just a slow period for the network at the moment w.r.t Ingress traffic. Although, I know back in July we were seeing daily averages of closer to 100-150GB/day of ingress, and I think the highest Iâ€™ve ever seen on my node(s) is close to 300GB/day of ingress.

Just have to be patient. If you build it, they will come.

Last time I checked, this was false. All non-full unvetted nodes together receive 5% of all Storj traffic. This doesnâ€™t mean a single unvetted node receives 5% of traffic. Instead, depending on the number of unvetted nodes in the network, single unvetted nodeâ€™s share might be larger or smaller.

Similarly, all non-full vetted nodes together receive 95% of all Storj traffic. So depending on the ratio between the number of vetted and unvetted nodes, you might even start receiving less traffic than as an unvetted node.

95% of all uploads will be uploaded to the group of vetted nodes. 5% to the group of unvetted nodes. If both groups would have the same size (excluding full nodes) then your math would be correct.

Fun fact: What happens if there are 1 million vetted nodes but only 1 unvetted node? How would that impact your math?

My node was vetted todayâ€¦ And i donâ€™t see difference between vetted and unvetted nodes.

Sounds less like a math question and more like a â€śhow does the code deal with that?â€ť question.

Havenâ€™t looked at that part specifically yet, but Iâ€™ve noticed some built in exceptions if there are not enough vetted nodes. Iâ€™m guessing something similar exists for the other way around as well? If not, I sure hope that single unvetted node has a good connection and decent hardware. Itâ€™d be busy!
