~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf I set
That reduced the blockchain size to 5G.
du -sch /mnt/btrfs/bitcoind/* ... 5.0G /mnt/btrfs/bitcoind/blocks 2.8G /mnt/btrfs/bitcoind/chainstate 17G /mnt/btrfs/bitcoind/indexes .... 25G total
This is indeed a x10 improvement, before pruning, my bitcoind data directory was roughly 250G. Yet, it's still 25G total. I need to run on a small SD card where there is only 10G of free space.
/mnt/btrfs/bitcoind/indexes/txindex/*.ldb files take up the majority of space, 17G.
Is there a way to prune the txindex/*.ldb files?
