I am trying to setup a bitcoin node , ran bitcoin core and it started the download process quite fast ETA 18 hours , gradually the speed decreases .
When I started download it showed like 17 hours ETA, and this continued for around 2-3 hours.
**

Progress Increase Per Hour : 5.5 % 
Estimated time left until synced : 17 hours

**

after 2 – 3 hours , the progress starts going down .

After 5 hours

**

Progress Increase Per Hour : 0.71 % 
Estimated time left until synced : 5 days

**

I have enough empty hard disk around 200 GB free, RAM is also 4 GB .

I stopped the download , renamed the Bitcoin download folder and started download again fresh.

Same issue happened , initially the speed remains high but gradually after around 40 GB of download it starts going down drastically .

My configuration are

Prune block storage to : 2 GB
Size of database cache : 2048 MB
Number of script verification threads : 0 

Is there a bug in bitcoin-core or is it an expected behavior ? What can I do to speed it up ?
