I have 1TB on ubuntu 20.04 running full node, after 2 weeks, get this messsage:

Low disk space. Gracefully shutting down Geth to prevent database corruption. available=722.53MiB

I thought blockchain was approximately 50GB? Why am I running out of space?

  • Which network is geth connecting to? What's the command line? Geth can be configured in different ways Etherscan have some statistics on the default settings etherscan.io/chartsync/chaindefault. As of 2021-09-19 the node uses 972 Gb.
