I have a large instance on AWS, geth is still taking forever to sync, indeed I'm starting to get the feeling it will never get there. Also it falls over a lot. Is there a minimum spec for running this thing?
I'm guessing there is a certain amount of RAM it needs to do it's thing, above which more RAM doesn't help - what is that magic number - today and in a years time?
I understand that the time it takes, is mainly to do with disk performance. AWS is SSD, but pretty slow SSD. Are people running this at home on PCIe NVMe drives? If I wanted it done very fast are these kind of drives enough or do I need to RAID5 a bunch of them, to increase performance further?
