Question about Blago Settings
I'm setting up my first plots soon. I have some questions about the Blago miner. I'll get right to them since you're probably all busy, and then explain my first BURST setup below.
"CacheSize" : 40000,
What units are these in? Nonces? 40000*256KiB = 10GB? That can't be right? Blago is consuming 3MB of RAM? What should I set this to? My miner has 8GB installed at the moment, but my main PC has 32GB.
"ShowMsg" : false,
"ShowUpdates" : false,
What are these? Blago needs a wiki. :P The HDD wakeup only seems to trigger every 4+ minutes, which won't stop anything from parking its head? What do the other ones refer to?
I read that TargetDeadline doesn't matter when in a pool? Correct?
"UseFastRcv" : false,
"UseLog" : false,
"ShowWinner" : true,
"UseBoost" : false,
I see many example configs with UseBoost set to true? What is it, and why is mine false?
Right now I have 1TB plotted and mining, using Xplotter and Blago. I also tried the GPU -direct plotting, but it wasn't much faster, so I opted to just mine Ethereum and use CPU plotting. I ordered some 4TB Seagate drives for $130 CAD ($100 USD) and have my bat files planned out to plot them once they arrive. I will soon have an extra 12TB available. :) I've got an old AMD board with an APU (yes, it supports AVX!), 8 SATA3/600 ports, 5 PCIe ports. It's turning into my 24/7 mining machine. :D
Cheers, and nice to meet you all.
