After not seeing any results (no deadlines) over more than a day, and after reading and asking around, I decided to go ahead and replot my 5 TB.
It seemed like my plots by GPU didn’t go well, so I’m using the Xplotter within Qbundle. For now.
Right after I started reploting the 5TB, my 5X 8TB showed up in mail. Woohoo! Now I have 6 different drives that i’d like to utilize, between 1 or probably 2 machines (both machines can be for plotting and mining).
I’ve got different answers regarding plotting, and I want to try again from scratch and ask:
The need for no overlaps of nonces; is that per burst account? or per mining machine? or per physical hdd? Or all the above? Or none of the above? I can’t find a good answer to that
Since I don’t want to take the risk of loosing a huge file(s) in case of any powerdown etc, I decided to utilize the Dynamic plotter in Qbundle. Yes it creates tons of little files, but at least I know that if the process is stopped, it can start again and just loose the last plotted file. Is that a right mind-set?
The built-in Dynamic Xplotter in Qbundle, doesn’t allow me to choose what nonces to start or end at per file. So; since there is a need to prevent overlapping, and I’m going to utilize more than one physical HDD - and probably plot on 2 machines - I’ll need to plot 2 HDDs at a time. So: how do I use the built in xplotter, to make sure that all my 6 hdds are not overlapping each other?
Is that something that is at all done automatically withih the built-in xplotter once I add my already plotted files into the ‘imported’ section? It says there they’ll be imported automatically but they don’t get automatically imported…
Is that something that can only be done w/ the xplotter manually outside of Qbundle? If using the Xplotter manually - can I still run it as a dynamic plotter???
Since there is a need to prevent the overlapping - if I do need to setup xplotter manually outside of Qbundle - given that I have 2 machines that I can plot on - how do I know what nonce # to start with, on each HDD?
Any info is much appreciated. Thanks and happy bursting!
