Just for the sake of completeness, StarCraft is running fine on RPi4 using Exagear Desktop + Wine. The problem is that Exagear Desktop is not available anymore, but if you got it back then, StarCraft is a good use case. It's the only way to play the Original / Brood wars campains, as Stratagus lets you play single maps only.
Theoretically, StarCraft should ...
Yes it can be done, as referenced on the pi forum.
First you will need to download and install Stratagus and Stargus
Then you need to install and unzip everything using the snippets below.
sudo apt-get install cmake autoconf gcc lua5.1-dev zlib1g-dev libpng12-dev libbz2-dev libsdl1.2-dev tolua++ devscripts doxygen sharutils libmng-dev libmikmod2-dev ...
I have a Pi 4 Model B/4GB serving a small office as a router/firewall/gateway with dnsmasq (DHCP+DNS), dnscrypt-proxy, chrony (NTP), and a few other odds and ends. It's fairly busy: up to 20 users at a time, lots of file uploads, three main VLANs (plus a management VLAN). There's minimal internal routing for the time being.
I haven't really stress-tested ...
Don't know much about nodes, but there are some cluster PC projects using USB or WIFI for the Zero.
I'm sure they can also be applied to other Pis like the 3B and 3B+, or 4B.
You can always overclock by +100MHz from stock (ram, arm, GPU, core) , for slightly higher performance.
Also, see if you can install an SSD instead, to lower latency, and disable ...
This question was asked back when chromium was not hardware accelerated (much).
But for those who have the same problem nowadays, this will enable hardware acceleration:
Run sudo raspi-config in the terminal.
Select "Advanced options" using the down arrow key and pressing Enter.
Select "GL Driver"
Select "GL (Fake KMS)"
Exit raspi-config by selecting "...
The Pi 4 has USB 3.0, which I assume is what you plan to connect your external HDD over. The maximum bandwidth of USB 3.0 is 640 MB/s. (The Pi 3 had USB 2.0, which maxes out at 60 MB/s.) However, this is only the theoretical maximum speed.
It's hard to estimate the speeds you would get in practice, since software overhead will slow your R/W speed down.
I don't know what causes it, but I haven't seen it happen on Buster (yet), but if it happens for you, try this:
This command refreshes the panel, but leaves all the original command line flags intact. Therefore its look and feel will not change.
In general, I found memory to be the biggest problem with running bitcoin full nodes, but ymmv.
When you are faced with problems like this, vmstat should give you a good idea of what is going on. Running vmstat 5 5 will give you five lines of output with 5 seconds between them.
The columns mean the following:
r: The number of processes waiting ...
