What are the hardware requirements for running the alpha release?

The alpha release is targetted for local development. As such, your computer which you would do normal development work on should be able to handle this without issues. It is recommended that you use either MacOS or Linux, since the instructions will be written with commands intended to be ran in bash (or a shell of your choice).

What are the hardware requirements for running the Ruby node?

At a minimum, a ChainLink node which is also running Geth (as a light client) should have:

  • 2 Cores
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 16 GB Storage

As we get closer to when the node network goes live, we’ll be able to tell how adding hardware resources scales for a node’s ability to complete more assignments.
