For three days I've been trying to sync a full node. Syncing the last two days has taken about six hours a day. At this rate I won't be able to sync it. It's behind "age=3y8mo5d".

This is the command I used: geth --datadir /media/internal-2tb/eth --syncmode full

Why is it taking so long? Is there a way I can speed it up so it syncs in a reasonable amount of time?

syncing full node

  • I think this has to do with this: ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/9883/… Jun 4 '20 at 18:45
  • If it is a mechanical disk you should be aware that they haven't been supported for several years.

  • @Ismael damn I didn't see that. Guess I'll just run a light node. Jun 5 '20 at 3:18
  • My node's been syncing for 3 weeks ><
