I have a spare Dell precision t1700 that has a Xeon processor plus a 500GB main drive with 2x 3TB drives inside. It’s just sitting here not doing anything. My ISP is FIOS, and I have symmetrical Gigabit internet with no data caps.
Any ballpark idea of how much I can make if I setup this machine as a node? It seems like a pretty cool idea since this machine id on 24/7 but not doing anything.
Also, I had some questions like can I adjust how much bandwidth the node uses?
Do I need to dedicate 100% of each drive I choose or can it be a specific folder?
Since I have 2x 3TB drives, am I better off using 3TB of storage in a RAID1 config?
Would I be better off buying a QNAP NAS?
