I'm planning to run a
monerod node on my Ubuntu server, but I also have a web server running there and another cryptonote daemon. I was wondering, how much memory does
monerod take on Ubuntu?
Looks like 1.75 GB.
$ docker stats CONTAINER ID NAME CPU % MEM USAGE / LIMIT MEM % NET I/O BLOCK I/O PIDS 59cba0501edf monerod 1.61% 1.751GiB / 15.54GiB 11.27% 81.2GB / 421GB 136GB / 224MB 25
This particular invocation has been up for about 4 weeks, since I last needed to reboot the kernel. (I've set Docker up to restart the process on boot)
On one of my boxes,
monerod is using 1.2GB RAM, and on another 2GB. Both of these are Ubuntu. Of course, you'll also need a hard disk, ideally SSD, with 30GB+ free for a pruned node or 80GB+ for an unpruned node.
I'm running up to 3 monero daemon's on an very old laptop. 2 GB RAM, 240 GB SSD. Plus 3 heavy Nodejs apps, Apache, MySQL, MongoDB, Redis and sendmail.
Once a daemon is synced, the CPU and RAM usage is very little.
