I am a Storage Node Operator since Dec. 2019 and the first payout was low as expected since i had just a few day as Node Operator.
January and February, i received prety good payouts on the order of 200+ Storj being the month of February, the best month.
I increased the space to 3Tb for March and now i just received roughly 90Storj with more space and bandwidth and this happened since the update to 1.1.1, and i am also having the same problem as others:
Payout Information: It only states that my Node is only just for the Month of April not counting the Dec. Jan. Feb and March.
Can anyone tell me if the is any problem with the calculation of the node since V1.1.1 and/Or regarding the payouts.
Hello, i got the same problem here…
I receive each payout, but the 0x66f0b890c2bf6d71756f03fd3b2aad18b39775 satellite seems less generous than before… Only 75 storj, and previous month 275 : i don’t understand !
There is no more surge payouts x2 x3 x4… that is the right payment for your provided services. x1
In february I got: 477, there was a 2x surge if I remember correctly and 15 days payment becouse of automatic payouts launch. On march + 15 days of february I got 518 with no surge payout. And this month I got 204.
We uses measure unit as GB*h for a reason. You can take it as kW*h for the electricity.
If customer stored 1GB for a 2 hours it would be 2 GB*h. For a month 720 GB*h.
If customer will delete their data, it will not be accounted as used since that.
We collect the total usage information and then divide it to the number of hours in the current month, roughly 720 hours. After that you will get a number of TBm.
You don’t get paid for “available” Storage, only for actual stored data and egress traffic.
Looking at your numbers I can see that you are in month 1-3 for saltlake and month 4-6 for all other satellites. Adding up all “paid” values in the right column gives you $3.1474. Since there was a surge payment of 2.5x you should have received $7.8685. If you click on the Txn Hash of each payment, you will see the USD value for each payment. Add it together and you should get close to $7.8685.
People, please stop complaining about supposedly lower payments than the months before. January was an exceptional good month due to a lot of testing and surge payout and February’s payment included the last week of January. You can’t assume that every month will have a higher payout than the previous month. If there is less download of data, which accounts for most of the payment, then you will get paid less.
The script relies on the databases the node keeps. The only way it could be wrong is if there is bandwidth usage in those databases that didn’t actually occur. The only way I can think of for that to happen is when you somehow use databases that were used by another node.
In all my testing the amounts are spot on. The same with most screenshots posted on here. (almost all of the examples of SNOs thinking they got the wrong amount turn out to be some misunderstanding.)
@cy2k It might be worth comparing against the web dashboard, though you can only do that for the current month right now. But you’ll see matching numbers between the web dashboard and the earnings calculator for bandwidth usage.
The egress may seem unusually high, but this is a node that likely wasn’t vetted for most of the month on all but the saltlake satellite and that satellite has done some download testing. Additionally by the end of the month there was likely much more than 30GB stored as there was quite a bit of upload throughout the month.
