@haitch Thank you so much! I will test this out, I am sure I can get it working great. I am also a "but why" kind of guy.
If it is irrelevant, am I wrong in thinking "more stagger is better"? In the doc linked here it says: ```
//<stagger size> - You can think of stagger size as a ‘buffer’. This is how much will be read into memory before writing to the hard drive. The place that stagger size really comes into play, is during mining. During mining, the larger the stagger size the better on your drives, the less seek time, and faster your computer will read through the plots, thus faster deadline submission and more of a chance of hitting a block. Setting your stagger size equal to 75% of your total memory (or up to the amount of memory you have,) is a decent default. I.E. if my computer has 10GB of RAM, I would set my stagger size to 8192. Or something close to that, my math is not exactly perfect, but a stagger size of 8192 or larger is great, if you have the memory for it!
@Han-Solo thanks for that ! obviously makes sense. il check that out shortly. now got my miner working again on busrtcoin.party ! however i cannot access my online wallet ! anyone else having this issue ?
Well, Burst Mining as we know it might end around that time. Especially at the pace, the network is currently growing...
Read a few other posts where punters have complained about the netDiff reaching 20k (quite recently). Now, the Difficulty regularly lingers @80k+. Eg. Earlier today, just one snapshot [netDiff = 86k].
As the netDiff charts show, this takes the mining returns WAY down. Eg. Transactions per Day /Chart - One Month View [1m]. Sharply down ~80% from an average of about 7.5k /day (over the past several months) - to the current value of ~1.5k /day.
The intra-day fluctuations are odd too. It's not as if some huge, commercial storage facility could burst-mine during quiet hours. That might work with spare CPU capacity, but not HHDs - since the drives need to be dedicated /Plotted in advance.
... Update - a few hours later. Not the highest, just one that I happened to screen-shot.
@haitch I spent most of the day playing with the settings figuring out how to get gpu plotter faster. i am either going to use my 280x or install my r9 390 and set it to plot a usb 3.0 4tb and a internal 3tb.
