Firstly, i’m sorry. I’m still getting my head around this, so sorry if I am asking dumb questions…
So my setup is a server with 8x2TB drives in RAID5 giving around 12TB of usable space, running Win10 pro on an i7 with 16GB RAM. My OS is on another drive so all that space will be used for Storj.
I have been running my node for 2.5 months, and since my PC is also acting as a storage for my personal stuff (on a separate drive again), it’s on 24/7 and that’s fine. I’ve had some downtime with my internet and a hardware configuration change so i’ve had probably missed the 99.4% uptime goal, but such is life.
I ran the script posted to check audits, and got the below results:
========== AUDIT =============
Recoverable failed: 1448
Unrecoverable failed: 1
Success Min: 64.1070101560565%
Success Max: 99.9613750482812%
========== DOWNLOAD ==========
Success Rate: 55.5474024068095
========== UPLOAD ============
Acceptance Rate: 57.5139093084263
Success Rate: 20.8376416523056
========== REPAIR DOWNLOAD ===
Success Rate: 0
========== REPAIR UPLOAD =====
Success Rate: 0
So what’s a recoverable failed audit? One I failed for whatever reason, but then was able to complete when I was back online?
I’m not sure if they are good or bad results. I mean, I have looked at other posts who did have issues, and my numbers are better than theirs were. But can I get your opinion on these, and see if I should be looking to improve them?
I think my physical location might be the contributing factor. I live in Australia, and not near a major city. I have 100/40 internet, but I suspect since i’m not close to the source for the data i’m probably missing out purely because I can’t reply fast enough (see? Told you I was getting my head around it)
So what are your thoughts? Doing OK, considering my downtime this month and last month was over 10 hours each? Considering my location? Or is something in the way i’ve set myself up possibly hurting my results?
I greatly appreciate all the help i’ve received so far, and to the devs: keep up the good work and thanks for your patience!
