I have parity installed and synced. I went out of disk space. I moved the chain to bigger ssd. Then I started the parity service and let it run whole night. It did not finish.
in log I can see repeating lines like
IO Worker #3 INFO import Snapshot initializing (378 chunks restored) #7280022 19/25 peers 1 MiB chain 10 MiB db 0 bytes queue 15 KiB sync RPC: 0 conn, 0 req/s, 0 µs
After about 2000 chunks I stopped it. How many chunks are there going to be ? This method should be fast, so I expect It should not take whole night
import Snapshot initializing messages changed eventually to
import Syncing snapshot and after few more hours stopped at
Syncing snapshot 3070/3070 #7280022 20/25 peers 2 KiB chain 10 MiB db 0 bytes queue 15 KiB sync RPC: 0 conn, 0 req/s, 0 µs
now there's reating message
IO Worker #3 INFO snapshot Block restoration at #6870000 decreasing
at by 100000 ever 2 minutes. I hope it's not going to zero. It would take another day.
Is this warp taking me to another galaxy ?
so after another restart it started syncing rest of the blocks
