I have a duel Intel Xeon CPU machine with 56 threads… ie 56 actual working Cores at my disposal. running at 2200 MHZ. I have 60tb of plotted HHD space on a 5 drive RAID partition… 5 x 7200rpm Exos x12Tb drives. So, as far as HHD goes, its hard to get much better/faster HHDs than that, at least for this purpose… other than SSD drives which is cost prohibitive.
So it seems that my system is still computing even after the deadlines are past. I am operating on CryptoGuru 50/50 presently.
I would like to know the configuration that professional users might prescribe to get better / faster deadlines, and where I am more effectively using my available CPU capability. As of now… I am using only 2 to 3 % of my available CPU capacity. Which, it seems for this kind of operation, we should be able to assign as many cores as we have available to use… or to run multiple wallets, each searching a segment of the plotted space.
Is there a way to more effectively utilize my available computing power than with my current 1 wallet / 1 miner setup, so I get faster results? I had thought of virtual machine setup… each running a portion of the plotted space. But having such limited knowledge of the current setup… I thought it better to consult others experiences on this topic.
I currently use my computer for occasional CAD design projects, otherwise I have it on all the time for storage of my 20 tb movie archive for my own and my families entertainment. Otherwise I use it for hobby experimentation such as this Burst Project. My goal is to get burst to at least cover my electricity costs in earnings capabilities… even if I don’t actually cash/out my burst coins.
That way I can at least support this Burst Crypto project as needed by the developers and community. As my computer is always on anyway. And who knows, maybe BurstCoin will eventually turn into something worthwhile.
