  • have not seen anyone post about it anyplace and not sure if it's the same for everyone but im my case ploting 3 dif HDD's with GPU ploter the <number of nonces> 100,000 is = to 24GB of space used... using that its easy to figure up a <number of nonces> to make a plot file the size you want.

    Nonces_to_plot = Round_Down(( disk_size_in bytes / 262144) / stagger ) * Stagger

    That will get you the exact number of nonces to fill a specific free space.

    Thank you!!

  • @dfmd1987 Sure, I will try.

    More details please...

    What plot speed are you currently getting?
    Which plotter are you using?
    What type of disk are you plotting? SMR, PMR or other??
    What is disk interface? LAN, USB 3.0, SATA ??

  • @iKnow0
    What plot speed are you currently getting? I´m really not sure, where can I get that information in my PC?

    Which plotter are you using? I´m using Burst Client Win v0.3.9.7 to plot my hard drive (Wich program is better?)

    What type of disk are you plotting? SMR, PMR or other?? **I have two: WD My Book 8TB USB 3.0 ** (Which hard drive its better - Brand and capacity?)

    What is disk interface? LAN, USB 3.0, SATA ?? Im using 3.0 (Which interface its better?)


  • @dfmd1987 The plot speed is expressed in nonces per minute , since you are a beginner just stick with the Burst Client to plot the drives. There is a learning curve to Burst, so read up in the mining and plotting section of the forum. There are faster methods for plotting, GPU but it is not as user friendly. Plotting takes time but you only have to do it once.

  • @dfmd1987 even on a comp that can plot (fast) an 8TB drive will take a few days to fully plot. the good news is you only have to plot 1 time each drive after that is easy mining.
