Hello Rando,

Thank you very much for the information. And I am checking your table data for Full / No-Warp --no-warp (05). I'm doing the installation of Parity in a Digital Ocean Droplet - Cents 2vcpu 2G RAM 60G Storage.

My installation for Parity in Centos 7 was like this:

1.- Dockear search:
docker search parity/parity

2.- We are looking for the latest version of Parity:
curl -sS '' | jq '."results"[]["name"]' | sort

-bash: jq: command not found

We are missing a package yum:
yum install jq

curl -sS '' | jq '."results"[]["name"]' | sort

Now yes! we see the latest versions:

[root@centos-s-2vcpu-2gb-lon1-01 ~]# curl -sS '' | jq '."results"[]["name"]' | sort

3.- We put the Docker parity (latest version):
docker pull parity/parity:v1.9.4

Ready put it:

[root@centos-s-2vcpu-2gb-lon1-01 ~]# docker pull parity/parity:v1.9.4

4.- Ok before you let it run. We will put the ports:

docker run -ti -p 8180:8180 -p 8545:8545 -p 8546:8546 -p 30303:30303 -p 30303:30303/udp parity/parity:v1.9.4 --ui-interface all --jsonrpc-interface all

According to the table you indicate, I am in cell 5, with Fast --no-warp. And I've been synchronizing for about 2 days, and there should be little left over depending on the table:

[root@centos-s-2vcpu-2gb-lon1-01 ~]# df
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 62903276 27952700 34950576 45% /
devtmpfs 920968 0 920968 0% /dev
tmpfs 941688 0 941688 0% /dev/shm
tmpfs 941688 98812 842876 11% /run
tmpfs 941688 0 941688 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs 188340 0 188340 0% /run/user/0

If you manage to synchronize, I will notify you how busy the disk is, so that you can update or check data.

Thank you very much!

Now the only thing I'm looking for is how to create the new account with Docker and the parity signer new-token command (it does not work so far, I think it should be something like docker run parity/parity: v1.9.4 signer new-token something well, but I still have the code)
