    Could you tell me how many disk space, CPU load and bandwidth dcrd and dcrwallet deamon takes for solo PoS mining?

    I've just created my wallet and started dcrd and dcrwallet but I see my CPU load is >200% (Odroid C2), disk space continuosly growing. BW seems to be lower than 100KB/s down.

    It's a local Odroid C2; I can also use remote server if it's better but I don't want dcrd takes all my vCPU...

    Is it a good thing to solo mine?

    So disk space is currently 2G or so for the blockchain and maybe a few hundred M worst case for the rest. The blockchain of course will continue to grow. For a voting testnet wallet with a ton of tickets (I only have data there but it should give you enough idea) takes basically no cpu once things are all synced up and everything. Initially sync can be a lot though. The bigger issue is memory. I could not use wallet on a linux VM with 1G of RAM after the wallet got big enough. 2G seems fine though. I don't have numbers for bandwidth, but I used to run 3 voting testnet nodes on my home internet connection with no issue so I doubt it is much.
