January 28, , Start synchronizing the block chain since 24 hours x 2 on Macbook So I'll close this and open up a wishlist item. I'm on a spinning HDD old school, I know. Stop blaming the user. Sign up for a free GitHub account to open an issue and contact its maintainers and the community. In general, any database system running on USB tends to have terrible performance.
At the top of these four columns it should show you how much of each of these resources are being used in total, expressed as a percentage of the total that is available. Closing these down may help to speed things up For example, on thing I have noticed is that Google Chrome leaves a background process for running for every plugin you have installed, even after you have closed your browser.
These often use up memory and if you have a few of them it can make a real difference to shut shut them down. In my experience it is the disk transfer rate which is most likely to limit the speed at which you can download a blockchain and sync your wallet. So here are some simple tips to help you improve your disk transfer rate performance on a Windows computer:. This is the one which proved to be the most effective for me.
With a standard Windows installation the virtual memory setting is set to automatic, which selects a conservative figure that may limit performance. We are going to change that to a custom size calculated to get the most out of your hardware. The following instructions to find the virtual memory setting are for Windows 8. They may vary on different operating system, but not by much so you should be able find it with a little initiative.
If not you can always Google the exact instructions for your OS. On my system this was already selected as standard. If you have set up disk compression at any point in order to increase available disk space then you should be aware that this can reduce disk transfer rates, so you may want to re-consider.

Highly Irregular 8, 5 38 How many incoming connections do you see? Are you on Windows, Linux, or macOS? For what it's worth, I have the same problem. I receive a new block about every 20 seconds. Approx 2 incoming, 4 outgoing connections.
I use it on Windows 8. I have 8 outgoing connections now i needed to delete one blockchain file because a seperate issue after i have asked this question. Currently it takes 3 years to download everything which is nonsense. It is probably not the actual downloading of blocks that is making it slow.
From personal experience on a 2. Most of the slow seemed to be validating blocks. It was certainly nowhere near as slow initially, so I suspect a BIP has activated somewhere along the blockchain that causes validation to execute slowly after that. I did notice it seemed faster for a while if I safely exited and let Bitcoin Core shut down nicely before starting it up again.
Hi Willtech, thank you. It turned out that Bitcoin Core does not work very well with network drive. I have mapped the data since with iscsi and this worked fine. Still all the syncing is slow in general by design which is bad, but there seems to be nothing to get around it. That would do it. If my answer below has helped you I would appreciate it if you would mark it as accepted so that the question does not remain "unanswered".
I guess your computer is too slow. Looking at Bitcoin Core v0. Some thing to consider that could make a difference: If you move your whole.
The balance in my Bitcoin-Qt wallet (stored in wearebeachhouse.com file) will show as the imported blockchain catches up to the particular point in time for the transactions I did. Eventually, when wearebeachhouse.com is fully imported, newer blockchain on the network must by synchronized and Bitcoin-Qt will does this by continue on. Performance of initial sync largely comes down to the individual performance of your computer provided your internet is fine. There are some parameters that you can look at and consider depending on your own system. Always make a backup of your wallet before making any changes. The parameters can. I guess your computer is too slow. Use the latest release ( for example) and don't change cache values unless your RAM is less than 8 GB ( MB is less than the default setting so by setting that you actually made it worse).
