Please note, nothing in this comment is intended as a complaint. I got started with Storj more because it seemed like a good way to learn some DevOps skills, than as a “get rich quick” scheme. In that respect, it’s been paying off nicely!
I’m curious, though, how to calibrate my expectations about payment.
I’ve been running for about 14 days, almost continuously (I addressed a couple hiccups pretty quickly). My dashboard estimates that I’ve earned $0.02, of which half will be held back. (Can I at least hope that the penny I’ve earned will be a shiny one? )
Can more experienced SNOs comment on whether this is a typical experience, and how much I might reasonably expect it to increase? I do see that egress is increasing nicely as more data is ingested, but it seems the rate would have to be astronomical to even outstrip the power costs in any reasonable amount of time.
My setup is on a 1.83 GHz Core2Duo processor, 4 GB RAM, 3.1 TB available space.
Is it likely the processor speed is constraining me? I have a 2.26 GHz machine I could easily migrate to if that would make a difference (its power consumption is better too). I know fast processors are not required for Storj, but if mine are in a range that a little more speed would make a difference, I’d like to know about that.
Any other comments?
