This is on a very fast machine with NVMe disks in a BTRFS RAID 0.
16 current gen amd cores
4x nvme drives in raid 0 for increased read write bandwidth
…Unfortunately, the times to create a CID are currently too long to be viable for my use-case unless I dedicated a machine solely to this task (which is under consideration) … but I am wondering if there are any settings, etc that I can tweak to improve the overall CID creation time.
Configures the node to use the badger datastore.This is the fastest datastore. Use this datastore if performance, especially when adding many gigabytes of files, is critical. However:
This datastore will not properly reclaim space when your datastore is
smaller than several gigabytes. If you run IPFS with ‘–enable-gc’ (you have
enabled block-level garbage collection), you plan on storing very little data in
your IPFS node, and disk usage is more critical than performance, consider using
This datastore uses up to several gigabytes of memory.
This profile may only be applied when first initializing the node.
You’ll need to initialize a new node, since - AFAIK - there’s no method to switch datastore formats after initialization.
