Alpine Linux OS RPi Cardano Node
Set up and run a Cardano Node on a very lightweight Linux distribution.
Why use AlpineOS on the Raspberry Pi?
Very low memory consumption
(~50MB utilized during idle vs ~350MB for Ubuntu 20.04).
Lower CPU overhead
(27 tasks/ 31 threads active for Alpine vs 57 tasks / 111 threads for Ubuntu when cardano-node is running).
😎 (Literally, CPU runs cooler❄️ because of the lower CPU overhead).
If you're gonna use static binaries, might as well take advantage of a fully static operating system like AlpineOS 😜
