both should be counted in my case tho, because my storagenode is located in the same location as the data and my hw watchdog would shutdown the OS if it was unresponsive.
i’ve seen poor connections do all sorts of things, most often they just won’t work, but from time to time the will work but be unstable… in case of hdd’s make data that goes to or from the disk seem corrupted, in some cases even graphics cards can be connected and working but running poorly simply because they don’t have a good connection to the mobo.
ofc thats why one should use screws… xD
we can fully agree that if it is just offline or the hdd disconnects the node will shut itself down, since v 1.14.1 i think it was…
its not unlike when an internet connection is spotty… most often the websites or data transfers won’t be affected, but if it barely works, like say disconnects and reconnects rapidly (because everything vibrates i suppose) then you get this limbo where more of the normal ruleset is almost just out the window.
ofc depends on a lot of factors, but i’ve seen similar things in so many different cases, that it’s just an inherent phenomenon relating to electrical connections…
just like when a loose connection in a light makes EMI or radio waves to make the door bell ring randomly.
electricity is weird and wonderful… xD
