    Farmer is its sole pc running on Windows 10 with all the drives on it

    Handful of other PC's each have their own specs + SSDs to plot

    Those plotters each have my farmer / pool keys on it from my main chia account, so that they can create correct plots to be used with it


    Before I used madmax (^), they all had the chia app installed and logged in, so the keys would be there - but then the app wouldn't be open, but I could plot via command line and still have everything running under the one

    Had another run both PC's this morning with Madmax and still not doing great, but compared to Chia std plotting much better.

    PC #1
    Windows 10, using other apps in the background so a little bit bottlenecked.
    10900KF @ 4.8Ghz
    32gb ram
    MP600 2TB
    Madmax
    Plot time = ~1hr

    MP600 write speed hover around 600-1.0gb/s most of the time with 85-95% cpu usage

    [​IMG]

    PC #2
    Unbutu 20.xx latest update
    2660v2 x2
    128gb ram
    110gb RAM Disk
    MP600 2TB
    Plot Time = 2.5hrs :(

    Seems like the write phases are getting slowed down for some reason. CPU usage seems to be 100% on a single core all the time and it alternates between different cores, but the rest of them are around 15%. I also ran benchmark on the MP600 and got 3gb/s, along with 250mb/s on the destination drive.

    I ran the GUI on my main, and powershell on others. Running via the CLI you can specify your public keys to use for plot generation. Then set the plot path to the network shares for it to do the final copy, or I just manually copied. The Main had all the shares mapped and listed as plot directories in the GUI.

    I fixed it after a tip from a guy on the Madmax discord. All you Linux/Unbutu veterans are gonna say 'rookie error'...I had both the MP600 and the destination drive formatted in NTFS. I just started and can tell it's good, straight away P1 Table 2 time has gone from 400secs to 136 secs, and CPU usage is high on all cores. I feel like my life is now complete :D

    Got all the remote desktop stuff working too, so now I just need a low profile M.2 card for the server case and I can button it up and put it away in my cabinet.

    Great stuff.

    Edit: I actually purchased some Chia today after the monumental crash it has had. Half a coin using my mined ETH/BTC I was just about to cash into AUD.

    33mins with the 2680's. A few guys seems to get a slight improvement playing with buckets and what not, but I'm pretty happy with two machines doing a combined ~75 plots per day.

    Yeah I know that's why I didn't bother anymore. Unless there a way to combine all ocau members to mine in one pool (like folding) and benefits/coins are distributed on a calculated hash generated from each person's hardware (the better hardware with favourable hash gets a bigger portion of chia if that system finds a chia).

    Made my first withdrawl from hpool... A whole 0.2xch. I won't bother with stats as I've been pretty slack at ensuring the PC is on etc.

    Lost a lot of enthusiam on this with the delay to official pools.

    What, is the appeal for this coin?

    Disregard the mining/proof of space aspect.

    45 pages is alot.

    Is the creation of the coin meant to be some awesome idea like Bitcoins POW?

    The cynic in me says the logo is ripping off peercoin ...

    PPC was the OG green coin...

    Nah, this is greener.

    There will be more hype later when official pools start. Slated to be some time after Duke Nukem 2.

    Also don't forget to check your logging for bad plots :p I've had to delete two and remake them rather than have them sitting there trying to be read on eligibility but come up invalid

    Eg,

    Does that look normal? the duplicate compact proof etc.?

    "What they have failed to understand" ;) ... is that the energy expenditure involved in proof of work is an important aspect of the network security. When the network is large and a node is of a significant size, the node will be easy to identify. This makes nodes subject to rules (eg. laws) and means it is much harder for a significant amount of network consensus to be controlled by a signal entity (through controlling multiple nodes which appear seperate).
