I'm running:

  • Which Parity version: v1.10.7-stable-ba79cad-20180619/x86_64-linux-gnu/rustc1.26.2
  • Which operating system Linux: Centos 7
  • installed: from source

My parity config

db_compaction = "ssd"

pruning = "archive"

fat_db = "off"

cache_size = 4096

Computer uptime more than 5 days, and i get: 4.731.002 blocks and disk is: 452G/500Gb SDD now, syncing very slow and disk is full. Where did I go wrong? eth blocks occupy more drive space. When disk full 500Gb, what should I do?

Please help me

Change pruning to either "fast" or "light":

  • "fast" will potentially save a lot of storage space and also run faster
  • "light" will potentially save even more storage space
  • Thanks, after changed to "light", do i need delete old database? - and when i ran rpc: eth_getTransactionByHash, i get result is null.

  • Maybe you need to wait a little bit until it's synced... Jun 27, 2018 at 8:32
