Mac Users: New to Burstcoin Wallet, Plotting & Mining



  • @luxe !0_1494720085865_Minor WARN 10313.png I have successfully plotted to a file on my desktop and figured out how to get jminer to run, but I get this 10313 warning 'Unable to get mining info from wallet, caused by connectionTimeout, currently '12 sec.' try increasing it!' - 'Error: Failed to 'getRewardRecipient' for pool info: java.lang.NullPointerException' and 'Error: Failed to 'getBlockchainStatus' from 'walletServer' to find last winner' How can I fix this from occuring?

    Here are my jminer.properties:

    • PLOT-FILES ------------
      plotPaths=/Users/paulasher/Desktop/PLOTS
      scanPathsEveryRound=
      listPlotFiles=

    • MINING MODE --------
      poolMining=true

    • MINING MODE - POOL -----------
      numericAccountId=13427504061801621395
      poolServer=http://pool.burst-team.us

    Winner

    walletServer=https://wallet.burst-team.us:8125
    winnerRetriesOnAsync=
    winnerRetryIntervalInMs=

    • MINING ENGINE ---------------
      refreshInterval=2000
      connectionTimeout=12000
      debug=
      writeLogFile=
      logFilePath=

    • MINING ENGINE - APPEARANCE / BEHAVIOR ---------------
      readProgressPerRound=
      byteUnitDecimal=
      showDriveInfo=true
      showSkippedDeadlines=

    • MINING ENGINE - MEMORY USAGE -----------
      chunkPartNonces=
      readerThreads=

    WHERE AM I GOING WRONG? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

    THANKS!

    @initialattck Guess just some fine adjustment needed ... try:

    poolServer=http://pool.burst-team.us:8124
    connectionTimeout=24000
    walletServer=
    

    walletServer is just for additional info, you can add it later ... may have issues with https, you can use localhost:8125 later if you run your own wallet or something.

    Edit: sry missed the http:// for pool



  • @luxe - I appreciate the rapid response! I changed the settings in jminer.properties file as you indicated:

    poolServer=http://pool.burst-team.us:8124
    connectionTimeout=24000
    walletServer=

    and here is the result in Terminal...0_1494732092667_connection timeout at 36000.png

    It timed out on 24000 so I bumped it up to 36000 and it still times out. Is this due my connection speed (DL 86.54Mb/s US 6.18Mb/s)? I'm at currently at the coast...0_1494732427862_Download Speed.png

    I feel like I am so close to getting the miner configured. Do you have any other suggestions, based on the Terminal screenshot?

    Thank you in advance for your time!

    @initialattck Not sure, the miner just tries to get mining info from pool, and reports that is does not get the mining info in time. It is not because of your internet connection, it may also be the pool server under heavy load. Maybe you want to try another pool, just to compare.



  • I am not seeing any progress on terminal when plotting with mjminer. here is a screenshot

    Is that normal? Or should i be seeing some percentages etc.?



  • @FrilledShark

    Hey I am having trouble with the terminal codes:

    if my folder is in /downloads: do I need to write:

    cd /Users/Djunite1/Downloads/XPlotter.v1.0

    When I write this, nothing happens after and then I can a command error...

    can Macs use mjminer? I am trying to mine with my CPU



  • Hey, I think I am mining but how do I know if I am successfully mining? I'm just not getting any errors when I run the miner. But I also didn't run it with the ./run.bat command - instead I used sh run.sh. I am seeing a bunch of info with no errors. Am I mining?

    Also can I mine from 2 different harddrives at different locations using the same wallet/pool?

    what I'm seeing

  • Hello,

    Some great info, but anyone got an idea on resuming a plot after the imac restarts from a power down?



  • @ranso73 unfortunately, the dcct-derived tools can not continue a failed plot. You'll have to restart. But if there is a substantial portion plotted, you can mine it anyway and just ignore the error message the miner throws. Up to you.
