Is it normal to wait over 48 hours for a new cardano node to sync the block chain these days?
I have a 1 gig internet connection, static IP, 4 cpus, 10 gig ram, SSD storage.
CPU utilization is about 50% and memory utilization is about 75%, disk capacity consumption is only at about 30%, all of which appears nominal.
Internet connection is healthy (no packet loss, expected speed test results, etc…) and sync is at about 97% since starting the new node on Friday (about 48 hours now).
I’ve read elsewhere in posts about a year old that new cardano-node sync could take up to 4 hours.
I get that there are more users/nodes on the network today and thus the chain is obviously larger since then. So I expect that it would take longer…but how much longer I wonder?
So kind of looking towards to community regarding what I should expect based on your experience with syncing new nodes today. If it’s normal that it can take a few days that’s fine, I just need an idea of what is normal behavior so I’m not assuming things are fine when maybe they technically are not.
