I am using go-ethereum and running a private blockchain network. I want to what is supposed to happen when the memory is full in the nodes. Will the program stop abruptly or will the old blocks get deleted?

  • Ram or disk space? – Nicolas Massart May 1 '17 at 11:14
  • I suppose if ram is full, a virtual memory from hard disk will be created. So what if hard disk also is full? – spharish May 1 '17 at 13:59

Definitely old blocks will not get deleted, but new blocks will not get added to the Chaindata in local.
