As of August 5, 2020, the IoTeX chain database size is now ~52GB. Over the past week, we have noticed a spike in Delegates on probation. We believe this is linked to some Delegates having insufficient disk space (i.e., only 50GB), which impacts their ability to produce blocks.
Upgrade Your Storage
A call to action for all Delegates is to make sure your disk storage size is at least 100GB SSD. As reminder, the minimum hardware requirements for Delegates are:
- Memory: 8GB of RAM (16 GB preferred)
- Storage: 100GB (SSD required)
- CPU: 64-bit
- Processor: 2 cores (2.4GHz each)
- Network: 100 Mb/sec
