I’m happy to note that we now have a true ‘global network’ of SL nodes up and running for our Ada staking pools.
Frankfurt Germany, and Amsterdam, Netherlands SL nodes are both live and have been running flawlessly for the past two days.
With our global pool net having run with all nodes live for a few days now, I am happy to say the codebase for the SL nodes themselves feels rock solid. They have all been running smooth as silk since going live and running 24/7 - very impressive and bodes well for the bedrock nature of Cardano/Ada in the future.
As you can see from the above, we are running high powered nodes, dedicated entirely to the pools - no website hosting, side mining, etc. are run on any of our pool nodes. All are 6 core CPU interwoven SSD systems.
So far the % CPU and memory rarely goes higher then 3% at this point, so we have substantial reserve power if needed to ensure max performance for any pool members elected slot leaders.
Having all the nodes live 24/7 will let us continue to monitor and better prep for when pooling / staking begins.
