Is this an error, or is it okay?


#1

I’m still doing solo mining to test my setup and make sure I work the bugs out.
Every few minutes I see this:

----Fast block or corrupted file?----
Sent deadline: 13213591
Server’s deadline: 650486263834

Should I be concerned. I do have the NetTime service running so I am sure my clock is good.

Any info?

Thanks,
Paul


#2

Use the logs to see which nonces it’s occurring in - if always the same plot file, look at replotting.


#3

Is there any way to run a command to see if the plots are valid? I looked online and didn’t see anything definitive.

I’ll check my logs and post anything out of the ordinary.

Thanks,
Paul


#4

there is no plot validator, beyond validating the size of the file matches expected size - nothing is available to validate the contents


#5

Interesting. But there could be invalid “stuff” in a plot file?
I’m thinking there isn’t a need to validate a plot file, otherwise someone would have created a tool to validate one, or am I wrong?


#6

A tool to validate a plot file would be awesome - currently we create a plot file, and have o assume the contents are valid - we have nothing to demonstrate that the contents are valid. @Blago - possible ?

If Burst is to go mainstream, it needs help in the ease of use category. I’m an idea guy but also a programmer, so I am not picking at the problems, but rather looking for solutions. Anyway that I can help.

Sadly I am not a C expert. C++, Java, Powershell, Perl, I’m good. So I will see where I can contribute.

It would be nice to plot a disk full of files and then run a quick command to verify that they will work well with the miner with minimal problems.

Thanks,
Paul
