Synced the blockchain

I subscribed to a promotion at Vultr.com ($100 credit for 2 months - I was going to test this VPS provider anyway .. FYI they force you to pay a minimum of $10 with paypal or credit card for this promotion to take effect) and launched a medium instance - 8MB ram, 4 vCores, 100GB SSD - and synced the monero chain. Some numbers : * synced the chain in approx 16h > 2018-08-03 20:38:54.760 [P2P5] INFO global src/cryptonote_protocol/cryptonote_protocol_handler.inl:1171 [5.9.109.205:18080 OUT] Synced 101/1631088 > ... >2018-08-04 12:15:31.654 [P2P3] INFO global src/cryptonote_protocol/cryptonote_protocol_handler.inl:1171 [88.198.70.16:18080 OUT] Synced 1631540/1631540 * total db size = 57G * total bandwidth used = approx. 360G I thought the chain would sync faster on a more powerful machine (compared to my home mini PC). I remember the days when the db had to run in memory ... seems like yesterday ... db size is growing rapidly.
