Am am using Linux with ZFS filesystem and created a compressed ZFS file system for my dero node. But see XFS is recommended. I don’t have any problems but still wonder if there are some recommended settings for a ZFS file system or if I really should move over to XFS?

Pls use XFS, there have been some reported issues of caching on ZFS filesystem.
ZFS was initial choice though but have to switch to XFS filesystem.

Hello. What is the function of the parameter “–min-peers”.

--min-ppers X is used to maintain connection with at-least X number of peers.

Thanks! Problem is I have no disk space for that. I could make a ZFS volume and put XFS on top of that but not sure it helps. I guess its time for SSD upgrade.

Start mining with following cmd:
