So this is probably going to be down voted if it’s a thing, but thought I would post following the past 48hrs of data ingress to my Node in Feb 2021.
Appreciate it won’t be on the list anytime soon, but could we have an opt out of dev data loads added to the Storagenode config parameters, so that when test data is running the node isn’t a major part of this - maybe prioritise the traffic to nodes that are older than 6 months so that they are proven stable.
- Using up 99% of the allocated network bandwidth for my storagenode
- Causing piece downloads to fail as link is saturated with dev load - some of this looks like valid customer IP’s and I’m getting dropped on Egress due to slow response. (won’t be issue with UDP, but TCP ack’s and retransmissions make my firewall sad)
- The SMR drive in the storagenode to be covering it’s 2 year duty cycle in a matter of months - the write rate isn’t sustainable, my node will fail, I liken it to a targeted denial of service on smaller nodes (although I know that’s not the intention, that is the effect I am seeing especially in the gitbackuprepleacement - maybe Dev could take a look)
I know the TOS, no need to quote them so appreciate it’s all my problem - but the level of traffic was very aggressive 24hrs ago, to the point my firewall decided it was a denial of service and blocked the satelite us-central-1 - again, my problem but I’ve only just notice when my online scores were dropping, and I found that satellite blocked.
I’m just going to say that impression from forum is implying using old kit, not buying anything. and no need for redundancy for SNO’s (huge split on opinions) - but the data loads are expecting enterprise class setups, or expecting SNO nodes to die within 15 months It’s creating from reading forum a three tiered SNO structure, the Pro hosters , the enthusiast, then the hobbyist
Having the opt out parameter would make it more easier for SNO’s to choose how their node is utilised - I’m sure many will be very grateful of the GB’s of data load, but some like myself would sooner see a few GB’s of real data, and their hard drive living for more than 1 year
#Edit : Please I not complaining, I know I can leave project tomorrow - I wanted to highlight issue, as it might impact other small SNO.
