Node with less than 500gb

I have disk that has less than 500gb (electricity cost is less than what earnings are).
How to add that to my docker command (so i can run)?

The minimum required space to run a node is 500GB + 50GB for overhead (Step 1. Understand Prerequisites - Storj Docs).

Because of this, if you attempt to run a node with an allocated space lower than 500GB the node will refuse to start.

I know it’s possible (saw it on some post), but I’m not sure how to run

You can find the guide on how to run a node in docker here:

Regarding the post you mention where someone was able to run a node with less than 500GB of allocated space, I am not familiar with it, therefore I cannot help you with that.

Just be warned that nodes of these sizes as far as I know are not supported.

storage2.monitor.minimum-disk-space option in the config.yaml

How can I add it in docker command?

Welcome to the forum @andrijajepro !

As per current Supplier Terms & Conditions

If you run a node that’s less than 500 GB then you are in breach of the supplier terms and conditions.

You must have cheap power! :zap: For me if a disk isn’t at least filled with 2TB of Storj data… it isn’t paying for it’s power/internet/enclosure costs. Really with TB/TiB conversion, filesystem overhead, and some spare space for the node I need HDDs 4TB or larger

That’s not true.

Something like:

docker run -d --restart unless-stopped --stop-timeout 300 \
                -p 28967:28967/tcp \
                -p 28967:28967/udp \
                -p 14002:14002 \
                -e WALLET="$sWallet" \
                -e EMAIL="$sEmail" \
                -e ADDRESS="$sAddress" \
                -e STORAGE="10GB" \
                --user $(id -u):$(id -g) \
                --mount type=bind,source="$sIDFolder",destination=/app/identity \
                --mount type=bind,source="$sNodeMnt",destination=/app/config \
                --name "storagenode" storjlabs/storagenode:latest \
                --storage2.monitor.minimum-disk-space="1MiB"

Depends, since all nodes behind one IP are seen as one, I don’t see that much of a problem with also running some nodes with less than 500GB. It’s the same as having some of those drives in a RAID0 config, which just increases the failure rate of the while node. I think this is a better solution in that case.

It’s restarting, refusing to connect

Show the log?
Because at my place if I adapt a node or start one with this code, it does work without a glitch:

It shows something like this:
2024-05-22 19:22:54,747 INFO exited: storagenode (exit status 1; not expected)
2024-05-22 19:22:57,752 INFO spawned: ‘storagenode’ with pid 37

What does that mean?

Show your full code please?
And also a larger portion of your logs.
And also your first ~20 lines of the config.yaml-file
It seems to be that your config.yaml isn’t parseable or cannot be found.

That message couldn’t be clearer. Look in line 10 of your config.yaml. What’s written there?

It will be counting the non-zero/non-comment lines. Go into your confg.yaml directory and run this:

grep . config.yaml | grep -v "^#"

That should show the 10th line with the problem.

This config.yaml doesnt match the docker run command

I run docker this way:

This is the problem.

But again, you should show us your code on the docker statment.
Besides, not a single `, but triple!

You should end all lines of your docker statement with
