Nodes - Max limit?


Is there any “max limit” to the total amount of nodes i Storj?

My reason for asking:
I’ve been with Storj for 9+ months now (I know this is young nodes), with two nodes and the combined storage capacity of 25,5TB. I can see that number of nodes increase, but I can’t see the traffic increasing… Is it just my nodes or do we have enough nodes for the moment, and do Storj need my nodes? This is only ment as a question, I know Storj can do fine without my nodes :slight_smile:

Hi @Putte, there is no maximum number of nodes mentioned, although maybe a theoretical max based on a database INTEGER limit. At this moment I would agree with your assessment - the increase in node numbers hides the amount of total ingress to the network causing many nodes to not grow.

If traffic is grow the number of nodes is growing too, and the particular node will not see any increase in traffic - it’s spread across other new nodes.
It’s usual supply and demand game.
To confirm what @Stob said - there is no maximum limit of number of nodes. But your PC will likely exhaust number of free ports.
