Still low traffic after one month

Right now it say:

    Egress      Ingress
 566.3 GB     599.3 GB (since Nov 1)

@Tulip how long have you been a SNO?

Not very long, 3 month. why?

just curious , my node is 1month plus 3 days…

@Luiz how many audits do you have on each satellite? How much is stored? What is the capacity?

i dont know how to check audits.
i can see the score on every satellite is 1
my capacity is 7TB, and stored 30GB now.

is the alpha is my audit?
seems very low.
i thought score was my audit before.
so what’s wrong with my node? any thing i can do to improve it?

@Luiz I think you need to close your node so that the port 14002 cannot be accessed by anybody. If the port is open you might be vulnerable

And you probably need to give it some more time, just wait, for alpha to increase. I think I saw a formula for this somewhere in the forum.

The above script is useful, and you can copy/modify it to display uptime checks:

jq -r '.data.audit
replace with
jq -r '.data.uptime

The you display audits per satellite and uptime checks per satellite

your audit score is score, the alpha an beta are used to calculate the score:

root@CHEN:~# for sat in docker exec -i storagenode wget -qO - localhost:14002/api/dashboard | jq .data.satellites[].id -r; do docker exec -i storagenode wget -qO - localhost:14002/api/satellite/$sat | jq,.data.uptime; done

This is my new score two mins ago.

@Luiz uptime looking good, so all is well I suppose?

but i still get a very low traffic :joy:

@Luiz seems to be the case for everybody, just wait until the developers start testing and using

ok, thank you mate…

I too am curious about the low traffic as a new node. The majority of my uploads are coming from 118UWp:

grep uploaded /media/storage/storj/node.log | cut -f5 | jq '."Satellite ID"' | sort | uniq -c
5114 "118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW"
270 "121RTSDpyNZVcEU84Ticf2L1ntiuUimbWgfATz21tuvgk3vzoA6"
443 "12EayRS2V1kEsWESU9QMRseFhdxYxKicsiFmxrsLZHeLUtdps3S"
825 "12L9ZFwhzVpuEKMUNUqkaTLGzwY9G24tbiigLiXpmZWKwmcNDDs"

But that satellite is giving me the fewest number of audits:

grep AUDIT /media/storage/storj/node.log | cut -f5 | jq '."Satellite ID"' | sort | uniq -c
  4 "118UWpMCHzs6CvSgWd9BfFVjw5K9pZbJjkfZJexMtSkmKxvvAW"
 28 "121RTSDpyNZVcEU84Ticf2L1ntiuUimbWgfATz21tuvgk3vzoA6"
 22 "12EayRS2V1kEsWESU9QMRseFhdxYxKicsiFmxrsLZHeLUtdps3S"

Hello @dantidote,
Welcome to the forum!

This is expected behavior for any new node, it should be vetted before the full usage. While it’s in vetting process, it can receive only 5% of potential traffic. To got vetted on satellite, the node should successfully pass 100 audits for it. The vetting process should take at least a month.
So, please keep your node online.

Customers of the 118UWp satellite (known as mostly performs tests, so it’s not surprise that it uses your node more often.

Also, I noticed that you uses /media/storage/storj as your data path. Please, make sure that this disk is mounted via /etc/fstab to avoid losing data because a wrong automount (it could mount your disk to a different mountpoint after reboot, if you didn’t fix it in the /etc/fstab).

Hi, since yesterday i got a lot more traffic from the german based sat. So i hope it goes on. (In avg 5Mbps up and 5Mbps down)
So my node runs over one month and the audiths are at 100%.
