Following my post on installing a new node I’ve some newbee question about the syncing process.
I issued a sync command from my fresh node:
ucoind sync metab.ucoin.io 9201
Download: [||||||||||||||||||||] 100 % Apply: [|||| ] 22 % Status: Remaining 16 hours
After few hours, it still in progress.
Can I safely interrupt the sync? And may be move this VM somewhere else. Or will it fail to restart?
Cgeek has said that the sync process will be easier with ucoind-v0.12. Does the version upgrade take care of previous work or should it be restarted from scratch.
As far as I know the protocol of syncing a node must slowdown newcomer node to stabilize the network of node of the community. Avoiding alien node to multiply and takeover a community may be. Which seems perfectly reasonable to me. But not if it can’t be interrupted at any time and restarted later.
What the node is doing during the download/Apply?
Can it do something else during the period?
Can we see where it is in the apply process?
If I can stop the node, can I slow down it’s CPU usage during the sync.
Can I upgrade the node with 0.12 code and make it use downloaded or even computed data of the version0.11?
