I would like to know how to use a specific command in geth.
Geth lists "Performance tuning options:
--trie-cache-gens value (number of trie node generations to keep in memory - default: 120).
Thing is, I have a HDD that is almost always 99% while I have used 2048 cache option to speed up things. While using chrome also, I am using 63% memory. I have 8GB ram memory.
How can I use trie-cache-gens to tune my computer to speed download the blockchain? Should I increase from it's default value of 120? How much can I speed it up before I run out of memory? Is there some math I can make or just try it some?
Can it speed it up by much?
Thanks in advance for the answers.
