RE: How To Set Up A Hive Witness Using HIAB At Version 1.24.4

in HiveDevs2 years ago

Haven't really measured that. Setting up you'll eat up like 350 GB downloading everything you need. Day to day running is a lot less.

I've attached my network traffic graph for the last hour. I can't really tell how often its being transferred but I'm guessing per second, and using that as an estimate, its about 70 GB/month which really isn't bad at all. (30 kb/sec * 60 sec/min * 60 min/hour * 24/hour/day * 30 day/month).


Do you have a transaction log for how many requests you get during that timeframe.

Witness nodes don't normally handle requests(that'd be the job of a fullnode, but it is possible to take some specific requests which I have my witness node doing for some very small private projects). Witness nodes just get and process blocks and sign blocks when they get assigned to produce a block.
