XPlotter - CPU plotter, creates optimized plots.
For faster writing you should start plotter with Administrative rights
XPlotter_avx.exe -id <ID> -sn <start_nonce> [-n <nonces>] -t <threads> [-path <d:\plots>] [-mem <8G>]
<ID> = your numeric acount id <start_nonce> = where you want to start plotting. If this is your first HDD then set it to 0, other wise set it to your last hdd's <start_nonce> + <nonces> <nonces> = how many nonces you want to plot - 200gb is about 800000 nonces. If not specified the number of nonces, or it is 0, the file is created on all the free disk space. <threads> = how many CPU threads you want to utilise -path = the place where plots will be written -mem = how much memory you will use
If not specified the number of nonces, or it is 0, the file is created on all the free disk space.
The calculation of nonces is in <threads>. Parallel computing nonces (after the first iteration) is asynchronously recorded to the drive without using the system write caching (FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING).
If the free RAM is not enough to generate the nonces, the nonces number will be decreased, the number of threads remains unchanged.
When you start the plotter creates an empty file desired size, it prevents a write error if for some reason the drive space is reduced while plotting.
Writes to drive produced in 4096 iterations, of approximately by threads*64KB.
