I’ve done some reading and I’ve yet to find an answer.
If I start xplotter and CTRL-C out before it finishes, the file appears to be the right size, but obviously it won’t have all of the nonces created.
I ran plotchecker and it says “checked - OK”. And this is only after a few nonces have been written (1% complete).
So what is a good way to verify that a plot is complete before moving on to the next plot file. I’m trying to create a batch job to plot a file, verify it is valid, and then xcopy it to my SMR drive, deleting the file on the fast drive and then starting the next one.
If xplotter, or GPUplotter, crashes, my batch job will assume it is done and start with the next one. I really would like a validation step in there somewhere. Or else I will come home to all 8TBs done and not know which are good and which are bad.
ps. also a nonce validator would be a great piece of software in the future.
