Ill give it a go. Aware that JBOD is the best option, as Raid (0)/1 etc. gives you data security but halfing the capacity (or 1/4 etc. depending on raid level) and thats what we dont want/need here. Running like 6-7 Qnaps myself so know a bit.., but not all.
Think I will start with settin up on of the Zyx and copying existing plots there just to try out as they are "true" NAS in opposite of the icy boxes which I have already running 2 of them fine and theyre just "dumb " USB boxes/extenders compared to a true NAS.
Like to keep it as simple as possible, prob. will report how it went next week, maybe set them up over the weekend so others can use info.
Actually, looking back through my bash history, I didn't run install-poco.sh for this version.
I did the following:
apt-get install python
apt-get install python-pip
pip install conan
pip install --upgrade pip
conan install . --build=missing -s compiler.libcxx=libstdc++11
Some of that may be irrelevant or need changing for your operating system though.
I have figured out that when I use only one plot it works. When I use all plot files it is not working only for the first run.
I had the same setup with jminer 0.4.11 with my old pc and everything works fine. any ideas?
@sgabay242 said in Advice on how to improve Deadlines:
So how big should a plot size be to generate 8 hour deadlines? 1PB? 2PB? 10PB? does the bus connectivity from SATA/USB and plot size read speed per round has anything to do with achieving better deadlines? I know it helps to rank better at your pool over slow miners, but does it help with your own overall resulting deadlines?
The other interesting discovery is while my plot is read 140TB @ 25/s I'm looking at the pool.poolofd32th.club screen in real-time and I see people finishing submitting their deadlines for the same round in like 1 or 2 seconds, how is this possible???? I wonder if is WAN network latency involved here, and some of this miners are very close to the pool server, say ASIA, and I'm very far AMERICA?
As an experiment, I'm looking to convert my miner to Ubuntu and use GPU CreepMiner written in C++, in theory Linux can proceses threads faster than Windows and C++ is Faster than Java (jMiner)
Change your miner setting to report all deadlines found. You'll probably notice you have dozens and dozens of deadlines that vary between days to months. If you mean, "how big should a plot size be to generate at least 8 hour deadlines"...well, I'm not even sure how to go about trying to calculate that. I mean, deadlines found on a given plot vary by block. I'm not sure there's even a way to really guarantee such a scenario of happening, regardless of plot size (well, I guess unless someone owned 100% of the network).
For submission, deadlines should be submitted to the pool the instance they are found (+latency), so its completely normal to see miners submitting deadlines a split second after a new block. Yours deadlines should be submitting in the same manner, even if it takes your miner 25 seconds to read your whole plot.
that is not how it works. 1tb doesn't give you deadline 3 and 2TB give you deadline 2.
When the network asks for a deadline it searches every hear drive for the best equation. your plot might have 1 equation that is under 3 months so it will report it. if it finds an equation with 4 month deadline it wont report it.
So the more TB the more chance at having a deadline and more chance for one of them to be under 3 months.
It like a lotory, the more hard drive the more equation the more chance to have a deadline under 3 months.
Or the more hard drives the better chance at having the best deadline to win it.
