Specific to the BP node, what single ‘thing’ gives the best performance? What is the slowest part of the code? CPU? RAM? SSD? Network speed?
I don’t want specifications, I would like to know what one thing I can do to speed up my working Block Producer.
The BP runs on a RaspberryPi4 with 4 core, 8G RAM just fine. The Relay could do with a bit more RAM at times. CPU wise, these nodes are mostly bored. The picture may look different when Alonzo smart contracts come live.
I appreciate the response. I may go that route - 4core, 8GB and SSD … I’m still experiementing with higher tier AWS, but it is easy enough to host myself …
