Your node is failing to answer, not satellite. The satellite is trying to reach your node:
This suggests problems either with your router (it cannot keep the load for example) or your ISP.
This graph only confirms that:
This is doesn’t mean that you will not have IP, this service is similar to your current DDNS - it gives you hostname, which you should update with your current public IP. It will not give anything else. So their slogan just mean that you would not need to use the pure IP anymore - “No IP”, you will use their hostname instead.
Your node doesn’t fail audits, it doesn’t answer on them - it’s a big difference. In case of audits failures your node would be quickly disqualified, in case of drop in online score your node would be suspended and can recover if it would be online for the next 30 days.
If you can connect Internet directly to your device with storagenode you can check the connection - if it was your router, you will not have downtime anymore.
Please, enable/setup firewall on your device before this check!
That log shows at least 4 satellites unable to connect, the initial post shows you had issues with a 5th as well. Additionally, clearly uptimerobot is having the same issues connecting with you. This isn’t a satellite specific thing. It’s a “your connection” thing.
You could try resetting the router, but please make note of any changes to settings you made, specifically the port forwards. If you don’t want to go that far just yet, try just restarting it first. If that resolves the issue for a while, but then it comes back, that’s a pretty good signal that your router can’t keep up.
I replaced my router and these errors went away. Thanks everyone. My audit score is poor for eu1.storj.io its down to 0, as now my node seem to work fine, I am assuming this score will improve. Do I need to be concerned?
Please just keep it online for the next 30 days, the online score should grow over 60% and it will went out of suspension mode.
The suspension means that your node would not have an ingress. If you are seeing the ingress traffic - then the node is not suspended anymore.
In that estimate the egress is included. It’s a total of storage + egress per TB stored.
Your node stores more or less real customer data. How much you can make depends on the customers usage pattern. You may be lucky and store data that gets frequently downloaded/streamed (like this). But you also may be ‘unlucky’ and store parts of cold backups that get never downloaded. We recently heard from a real lucky SNO: High egress on small node vs larger ones
I think this is now a fairly low estimate. Average at the moment is around $3.80, but may actually be more on newer nodes as newly uploaded data is more frequently downloaded than older data. $3.00 - $5.00 seems to be a better estimate at this point.
Filling 8TB will take roughly 2 years at current network behavior. Though of course that might change over the course of those 2 years. At the moment you won’t fill up 30TB ever. As when you reach a little over 20TB deletes of data will roughly match ingress.
I am not sure whats the value of these estimates as I dont know how long it will take to fill up the amount of space I put in the estimate. I think I need to take a different approach in this setup and forget about it for an year then we will see. In order to do this successfully I need to setup proper monitoring and alerts.
Has anyone here have setup monitoring and alerts on stoj running on QNAP as a manual setup not through storj app? I am looking for following to be setup
configurable n number of errors in a certain time in the container logs trigger an alert.
node down alert
automatic deployment of new version. Unfortunately watchtower docker container doesnt work on QNAP. How can I automate this process.
in case of disk failure how can I recover quickly. its a single disk not on raid.
anything else I need to setup? I just want to be a passive node operator who just look at the dashboard once in a while.
