Hello everyone! (See the bottom for specs)
I have long followed this project. Last weekend I got a much-needed bandwidth increase which allowed me to take part in the STORJ network.
I followed the excellent guide on how to get started on the STORJ network, and set up my node in the livingroom. It’s an old Dell Optiplex I had lying around. Since I am just testing STORJ for now, I only added 4TB of storage space to it.
It has been running for two days, and it appears to be doing something. As we speak, I can see that 270MB of storage has been used by STORJ.
I guess I just have some general questions!
- Is 270 MB of used storage in two days an expected value? I had imagined my node would fill up faster than this.
- Why can I not find my node on the API?
- Is the rate of which one’s storage fills up related to how much storage one has available for the node? I would not imagine so, but I want to make sure. I have an additional 20TB lying around that I haven’t hooked up yet to save on the electricity bill. If I could start the node and specify that I actually have 24 TB and not 4TB of storage, and have it fill up faster, that would be preferable.
- How can I monitor my node? I am of course aware of the
docker exec -it storagenode /app/dashboard.shcommand, but I would like to have more in-depth information about the node. I am also aware of SNOboard, and that it is not ready yet. What methods do you guys use to monitor and improve your node?
Excited to be part of STORJ this early!
