I'm trying to run a geth node and a bitcoin core node on one server. I started with a DigitalOcean droplet with 2 CPU and 2GB memory, but both the geth and bitcoin node would run out of memory. I upgraded it to 2 CPU and 4GB memory, but I notice that geth will take up 99% of the servers resources, no matter what configuration (unless maybe running a 16GB memory droplet, which is no option).
This results in the bitcoin node running out of memory and exiting.
Is there a way to ensure that geth only takes up max 50% cpu/memory? I don't want to split my setup to several nodes, increasing the complexity of my project's architecture.
