Could the drives timeout/sleep setting be causing issues?
I have every drive on every machine set to never sleep .
Finally reached 1 XCH in earnings. Still no wins.
me to, 1.07xch....... no blocks since i started in april, solo or pool.
I still have 10 solo plots, that the ultimate lottery right there if i ever hit a solo block lol.
I'm back plotting again. Got a synology with disk from here 2x3TB 1x4TB and added an additional 3TB.
Anyone want 36TB in a 12 bay NAS for $600? I was tempted - https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/224656842708
Has anyone seen any software yet that will monitor Chia plotters/harvesters and send alerts if they go offline? Like r3s mentioned earlier in the thread, monitoring for them to only find they’ve gone offline 6hrs+ ago is getting a bit tedious.
my pool can notify if a worker goes down.
Yep I should have looked first, Flexpool will give a notification when a worker is down. I think I’ll get my smart switches setup to auto trigger if I get the notification. Would be nice if there was some sort of customisation incase a HDD drops off or something.
Surprised nobody has come up with a HiveOS or something similar, but I gather that they hype has kinda died off with Chia. If it went much lower I think it will be in danger of people just switching off and selling…but hopefully it doesn’t get that way. A lot of OCAU’ers got in early, so I hope that it pays off for us all!
It is faster than ETH to transact on.
Uses 99% less power than BTC and ETH.
Maybe if Agg makes buy and sell section only in XCH?
If we priced GPU's in XCH they would finally go down in price!
Just hit 1000 plots, still not a single block found since april lol.
Ugh. Had a power surge this evening tripping a safety switch. Two issues resulted. Firstly I smelled magic smoke and have found one of my microserver PSU's has died, which is a NAS for my plots. I have tested with a spare full size PSU and it does power up so need to source a replacement. Secondly the Chia GUI wouldn't connect, had 127.0.0.1:8444 refused connection in the log. Eventually renamed the blockchain db and it's now working, but has to sync from scratch.
Ugh. We have had a few close lightning strikes recently and it's only because I was home that I powered everything down long before hand. It's something I have become more and more fearful about now that I am mining and farming.
Checking back in...
I got lucky early in the piece and scored 2XCH and sold one for ~$1000, covering all costs (well, new purchases) ,so happy days.
Now sitting here with a bunch of non-poolable plots (but they have been associated with HPOOL) on external HDD and trying to work out whether it's worth replotting.
Are you guys seening a worthwihle return on pooled plots at current XCH:AUD? Feels like it's pretty thin margin.
At the current exchange rate it's borderline, will take a while for roi. I am getting roughly 0.02 xch per day on 750 plots. Which varies depending on the pools block wins.
Probably a good idea to backup your blockchain DB every now and then. "C:\Users\User\.chia\mainnet\db\blockchain_v1_mainnet.sqlite" Currently it's 27GB in size and took me a couple of days to sync from scratch after corrupting due to a power outage!
I'm finally back online after a 36hour power outage that interrupted my resync, luckily the newly syncing DB didn't corrupt from the second power outage.
Edit: Getting a very high amount of stales now for some reason.
I was getting 5% stales the other day and was getting concerned but today its back to 1% and spacepool says anything under 2% is fine so not too fussed.
Mine was extremely high there for a while, seems to have calmed down now. Ping to the server was fine, speedtest was fine, nothing out of the ordinary in my network traffic. Might have been something it was doing after resyncing. Who knows. Now to source a replacement PSU for my microserver to get those plots back online.

Thanks for the update, this saves me tracking down why my stales went from 0 - 1%
