No Dashboard due to restart

I have looked in the forum and there are some threads to the same topic, still I do not get it to do what I want.

I always get this error:
root@vultr:~/STORJ# docker exec -it storagenode /app/
Error response from daemon: Container e34fbd4cc8e2e1d8f58cb3f8038d0c35aa064f886185313bbc39d8b8afa6ccef is restarting, wait until the container is running

What can I do?
This command: docker logs --tail 20 storagenode Does not get me any log but a list of commands…


This Command: docker ps -a gives mit this:
e34fbd4cc8e2 storjlabs/storagenode:beta “/entrypoint” 33 minutes ago Restarting (1) 47 seconds ago storagenode

Could you show what does it show anyway?

root@vultr:~# docker logs --tail 20 storagenode
–db.conn_max_lifetime duration Maximum Database Connection Lifetime, -1ns means the stdlib default (default -1ns)
–db.max_idle_conns int Maximum Amount of Idle Database connections, -1 means the stdlib default (default 20)
–db.max_open_conns int Maximum Amount of Open Database connections, -1 means the stdlib default (default 25)
–debug.addr string address to listen on for debug endpoints (default “”)
–debug.trace-out string If set, a path to write a process trace SVG to
–defaults string determines which set of configuration defaults to use. can either be ‘dev’ or ‘release’ (default “release”)
–identity-dir string main directory for storagenode identity credentials (default “identity”)
–log.caller if true, log function filename and line number
–log.development if true, set logging to development mode
–log.encoding string configures log encoding. can either be ‘console’ or ‘json’ (default “console”)
–log.level Level the minimum log level to log (default info)

–monkit.hw.oomlog string path to log for oom notices (default “/var/log/kern.log”)


I found some sort of log in the filesystem…

{“log”:" --monkit.hw.oomlog string path to log for oom notices (default “/var/log/kern.log”)\n",“stream”:“stderr”,“time”:“2019-11-25T15:01:22.33986631Z”}
{“log”:“Error: invalid argument ““5TB” for “–storage.allocated-bandwidth” flag: strconv.ParseFloat: parsing ““5”: invalid syntax\n”,“stream”:“stderr”,“time”:“2019-11-25T15:02:22.924107007Z”}
{“log”:" /app/storagenode run [flags]\n",“stream”:“stderr”,“time”:“2019-11-25T15:02:22.924210636Z”}

Please show your docker run command and remove your personal details like email id/payout address/dns

docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967
-e WALLET=“xxxxxxxxx”
-e EMAIL=“xxxxxxx”
-e ADDRESS=“xxxxxxxx:28967”
-e STORAGE=“550GB”
–mount type=bind,source="/root/STORJ/IDENTITY",destination=/app/identity
–mount type=bind,source="/root/STORJ/STORED-DATA,destination=/app/config
–name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta

I copied the Identity to this path…should be ok I guess…


docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967 -p -e WALLET=“0xXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX” -e EMAIL="" -e ADDRESS=“” -e BANDWIDTH=“20TB” -e STORAGE=“2TB” --mount type=bind,source=“”,destination=/app/identity --mount type=bind,source=“”,destination=/app/config --name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta

Why does your mount & name have single hyphen - ?

Also missing double quotes after STORED-DATA

I guess I just forgot…

BUT with this:
–mount type=bind,source=“/root/STORJ/IDENTITY",destination=/app/identity
–mount type=bind,source="/root/STORJ/STORED-DATA”,destination=/app/config
–name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta

It does not start at all…
Just gets me more lines…:
root@vultr:~# docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967 \

-p \
-e WALLET="xxxxx" \
-e EMAIL="xxxx" \
-e ADDRESS="xxxxx:28967" \
-e STORAGE=“550GB” \
--mount type=bind,source=“/root/STORJ/IDENTITY",destination=/app/identity \
--mount type=bind,source="/root/STORJ/STORED-DATA”,destination=/app/config \
--name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta

Where do it have to add them? In the description only windows need them…

Your quotes aren’t consistent some are " or “. You can skip quotes for the paths since you don’t have white space in it.


docker run -d --restart unless-stopped -p 28967:28967
-e WALLET=“xxxxxx”
-e EMAIL=“xxxxxx”
-e ADDRESS=“xxxxxxx:28967”
-e STORAGE=“550GB”
–mount type=bind,source=/root/STORJ/IDENTITY,destination=/app/identity
–mount type=bind,source=/root/STORJ/STORED-DATA,destination=/app/config
–name storagenode storjlabs/storagenode:beta

Are you sure your identity folder has 6 files and is located in the given path or is it at ~/.local/share/storj/identity/storagenode ?

Also your identity path should end at .../storj/identity/storagenode

Yeah thanks! I got it now…
Yes the files are there and it should be ok.

As I were only testing the disk is too small but I will correct that.

Got this now: {“log”:“2019-11-25T15:25:01.213Z\u0009\u001b[31mFATAL\u001b[0m\u0009Unrecoverable error\u0009{“error”: “piecestore monitor: disk space requirement not met”, “errorVerbose”: “piecestore monitor: disk space requirement not met\n\*Service).Run:118\n\*Peer).Run.func2:423\n\*Group).Go.func1:57”}\n”,“stream”:“stderr”,“time”:“2019-11-25T15:25:01.213399109Z”}

But that is ok as it is predicted.

Make sure you have more than 500GB actual free space. So it should be like 550GB (10% overhead) and this should be actual visible free space.

PS: 1TB HDD won’t actually have 1000GB free space so please check available free space and keep 10% for overhead :slight_smile:

Yes I know that thanks!!!

One more question. More Diskspace is better as I will have more traffic for repairs as I would store many more pieces right?
The calculator on the Storj website seems to be a bit strange in that matter…

More diskspace is good so you can store more data but it has nothing to do with repairs. You can’t use “repair” term loosely here since repair traffic different. If your node is reliable and has a good rep then you get to store more data when your node is chosen.

Calculator is an estimate of what you can make if you utilize all of the available resources which is rare.

Sure that this is rare…

Ok maybe I got something wrong there…so I need a good connection but the Storage is not the key-point to earn more. Traffic is way more important.

Tada :partying_face:

Storj pays node operators as follows:

  • Static Storage (on-node HD space): paid at $1.50 per terabyte month (TBM)
  • Egress bandwidth (downloads by Uplinks): $20 per TB of utilized bandwidth
  • Repair bandwidth (downloads by Satellites): $10 per TB of utilized bandwidth

I have got it now…
But how long until it will report as online? Or is anything missing? Can I test for open ports?
