Sync form scratch *extremely* slow
« on: August 21, 2014, 09:05:25 AM »

So, I installed 0.4.4 and wiped everything but the wallet folder. Sync is taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I increased the preferred peer by doing this:

Code: [Select]
network_set_advanced_node_parameters {"desired_number_of_connections": 32}

Any other advice on how to increase sync speed?

Also should older version clients worry about forks?

max connection is 200.

I have serious doubts BitShares will scale very well as it is right now. Hopefully that gets addressed before too long. Should be highest priority after market functionality.

Lucky,

I had to uninstall the previous version and delete THE WHOLE BITSHARES X folder in APPDATA/ROAMING.

Then install 0.4.5 and accept agreement, then File, import wallet.

The blockchain started at zero, but I didnt have any issues, it synced in about an hour.

I was having crash reports happen as well, until I completely deleted the BitShares X folder in %appdata%

Are you competely removing that folder? And uninstalling the previous version?

That's the only way I could get mine to work.

last night, with 0.4.4, I outright could not get it to sync. it stalled somewhere with 15 days worth of blocks left to download

tonight, after deleting blockchain, ive been syncing for the past few hours, and still have about 15 days worth of blocks left to download.
