How big is your db now? (mainnet)

I just noticed one of my relays is running short on space. The db is up to about 76 gb…just checking that’s what everyone else has and I don’t have some redundant files in there.

67 GB, for both 1.34.1 and 1.35.0

Hmm, I’ve got an extra 10gb in there. But I guess it’s always going to increase. New SSD time.

I moved my db on an external HDD attached via USB

No issue for performance?

nope, is my producer at home and it’s working well
if you will change the ssd probably you must reinstall OS, and I wanted to avoid this atm

I’ll just clone the ssd onto the new drive. I haven’t had to rebuild an OS for just a clone (hopefully!)


I successfully upgraded my relay SSD drive by cloning to a larger drive. Worked very well and minted blocks since
