First time setting up a full node with Geth and was hoping someone could help me better track progress.

Have been running for about 8 days and I believe geth is currently doing the "state sync"

1) Based on the details and performance below, do you think the sync will ever complete? Or I need to change some settings / up the machine specs?

2) Do you have any recommendations on metrics to track the progress of the sync? I also have the InfluxDb+Grafana setup described here

Many thanks
