BP max performance - What is the 'bottleneck?

Hi Folks,

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.

Thank you

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 …

Thank you
