i’m trying to run a node on MainNet on my Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
It all ran smoothly until approximately 5.5M blocks where i started to experience slowness of the whole system but the command top showed no shortage of RAM o CPU time. The only parameter off the charts was the wait time for I/O from which i can only guess that access to my SD card was slow.
However my SD card runs fine when algod process is stopped and i’ve even ran benchmarks and it all looks good.
Could there be a reason why, as the block pile up, the usage of storage memory increases to the point that the whole system is unresponsive?
