It contains all the features of this version and much more:
MadMax plotter support
Multiple jobs support (currenty set to max 3 jobs, to be used with separate temp SSDs)
HDD Groups (organize your HDDs to groups and fill them with 3 predefined options (fill lowest free space first, fill highest free space first, cycle fill – one by one/round robin)
Staging (aka “late copy”) – after plot is finished it’s copied to staging folder (can be on SSD). After fast copy phase, plotting can continue and file is being copied to slower drive in background
Disable bitfield option (if used with official CHIA plotter)
Custom buckets number (if used with official CHIA plotter)
Bugfixes ASAP – at least once per week
Scheduled in next major release:
When official pools become a thing: Let app delete “old” plots when new plot (which will be detected by official pool) is copied to final drive. Maximise time that old plots are still available to get you XCH!
Web view where you can see plotting statistics and control plotting process
Auto-start plotting when app starts. If your PC restarts and you set app as auto-start, application will start plotting as soon as it’s started.
Usage comes at a donation – 2 cents / plot. It’s communites contribution to keep our development going with bigger team. Each user gets 10 free plots, just to see new features!
Free version is still available, but will not be updated anymore 🙁
Last update: 30.05.2021 21:32 Version release 1.34b
Custom manager to simplify and maximize chia plotting process.
Currently running on Windows and Linux (Ubuntu).
Email me about other linux installations that you try this on.
THIS IS STILL BETA VERSION! E-mail me about bugs/improvements to email@example.com
App starts since 24 May 2021
Plots produced since 24 May 2021
latest java runtime (currently 1.8 update 291)
infinite (parallel) plotting iterrations
gracefull plotting stop (finish all running plots, but dont spawn new plotters)
start new plot when phase 1 of previous plot is finished
change plotting parameters while plotters are running – change affects newly spawned plotters
basic plot progress info
Web interface to monitor plotting progress
per plot settings (each paralel plot can have different source/destination folder, different RAM & threads setting)
staging HDD/SSD target. From there, files are copied to final directories (cycle through listed drives and spred load/space evenly, or fill-up first, then second, etc.)
copy time column
automatically pre-set path to chia deamon (if not set already by user)
Delete button is not working well (usually you need to press it 2 times to acknowledge action) – USE WITH CAUTION. Fix for this available soon.
In order to set path to CHIA deamon folder, you need to have enabled “display hidden items” in windows explorer
LATEST RELEASE (30 May 2021)
New features: – initial Linux support (tested on Ubuntu). Looks clumbsy, but it does the job. Same Java requirement as for Windows (1.8 update 239). Path to chia deamon is path to chia’s activate script (e.g. “/home/user/Desktop/chia-blockchain/”)
Bugfix: – copy time not caught in some cases, plot then stuck as 99% @ UI. Only visual bug, plot was actually copied to final drive.
Note: Reverted back to bat+jar file, exe wrapper for now gone
New features: – update parameters (ram, threads, temp & final folder, delay) while plotter is running – version check at startup – simple stat collector (number of finished plots) – k33 support – smaller screen support (hopefully), it should work ok even on 1280 x 1024 – app wrapped to exe (no more jar and bat file) – some UI notifications (invalid path to chia deamon, calculation of projected temp folder size when selecting number of paralel plots, etc)
Bugfix: – working with delay “wait for phase 1” fixed – working with fixed delay on slow PCs fixed (special case)
