I was running ipfs daemon on a university server for research until the process was shut down by its administrator due to excess consumption of CPU and RAM. To run again, I’ll need to give an estimate of CPU and RAM usage.
How much CPU and RAM does ipfs daemon typically consume in a set amount of time?
How do I measure resource consumption for ipfs daemon?
Note: It’ll still consume a fair amount of CPU/memory. If you want, you can reduce some CPU usage by not acting as a DHT node (pass --routing=dhtclient to the daemon). That should reduce the CPU usage to a reasonable amount (I run it on my laptop without issue).
