Checklist for CVN operators

Thomas König edited this page Sep 19, 2018 · 7 revisions

This checklist is meant for supporting CVN operators to make sure their setup meets all requirements for safe and permanent operation.

  • My system runs a recent version of a linux distribution and its packages are all up to date
  • My system provides enough resources (RAM/CPU) to process transactions and blocks and to quickly serve blocks to other peers
  • I run the latest FairCoin Core wallet software made available by the FairCoin developers
  • I have correctly configured NTP on my system and checked that the system clock is correct
  • I use a wired internet connection
  • I have physical access to the system and Fasito is plugged in to a USB port
  • I have placed the system in a safe location with stable (wired) internet and power connection
  • My system has enough hard drive space available to store the whole blockchain
  • TCP port 40404 of the system is open and reachable from the internet
  • I have instructed a trustworthy person to take care of the system in case I'm unavailable
  • If I live in an area with frequent power outages I've set up a UPS and connected the internet modem/router as well as the system to it
  • I do not run the wallet as the root user
  • If I know there will be an outage which brings my CVN offline I will inform the CVN Operators Group about the predicted time and duration
  • If I notice my CVN is not working I will inform the CVN Operators Group giving as much information as possible about the incident as well as an estimated time frame to resolving the problem.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
