    that scooping writing 14MB/s isnt slow?

    thx for help



  • Your drive is an SMR Drive! That's why!-/
    To make it short:
    They are perfectly fine for minig Burst
    they dont like having lots and lots of data written randomly to them! After a few 10s of Gb they go slow!

    Your better of plotting to an SSD (or an normal PMR drive) and then moving the plotfiles.
    You can do lots of smaller plotfiles it does not matter in the end!

    If you want to automate it you can run a batch (.bat) file like this: assuming your on windows

    @setlocal
    @cd /d %~dp0 
    XPlotter_avx.exe -id 10718900860795585473 -sn 0 -n 953376 -t 6 -path d:\plots -mem 14G

    ::and so on                    ...........snip............
    
    

    adapt this to your needs and run it with admin rights in the Xplotter folder.
    Write Speed for copying should be around ~100MB/s or even more!
    Good luck!

    (I want one of those ryzen's to ....jealous....!-)



  • Maybe someone wants to try this gsheet to create those batch files?! (copy it to your google account)
    Please double check! I haven't been using it often!-)
