Hi my node is syncing really slowly I have the datadir in an external hard drive connected through usb. Says the data rate for this seagate 12TB is 6Gb/s but the syncing is slow in comparison to when I have synced nodes in the past with internal nvme drives but 2TB is low so I am moving up to a larger hard drive and went with the external.
Any thoughts or someone who experienced similar? Even when communicating with RPC it is slower than normal I thought maybe it was because it was syncing but I am beginning to question it. Thanks for whatever input.
Also my internet is 1gbps upload download and it is connected through ethernet did a speed test to verify.
