Geth snap/full node on DO droplet, anyone?

We have tried to set up a geth node on a droplet with 4CPU/8RAM+attached volume for the geth DB, but it’s been for more than a week in a healing state. According to this done - - that might be due to a low IOPS. Does anyone has experience in running snap/full geth node on a DO droplet?

Hi there,

Have you tried using a storage-optimized Droplet for this?

The Storage-Optimized Droplets come with NVMe SSD storage which should give better IOPS.

If you are still seeing the issue, could you share the output of the command listed in that tutorial that you’ve shared regarding testing the read/write speed?
