Hello everyone. I’m in need of a huge help! About a week ago I got a fresh, new setup just for chia. The configuration is Ryzen 9 3950x, 4x 32GB 3200MHz ram, Asus rog strix b550-f motherboard, NZXT Kraken X63 280mm, 2x Sata SSD Samsung 870 QVO 4TB (right now in RAID 0) and 5 more chassis fans. I tried all different plotting settings, from single plotting, up to 16 parallel plots. On a single plot I get about 5 hours plotting time, but when I try to plot in parallel, right now 10 parallel plots (8000MiB, 32 threads each), I get 10 hours for one plot with a delay time of 240 min (1+2 phase). As I can notice, the SSDs are working almost all the time at 100%, but with average of about 120mbps and maximum of around 480 mbps. The ram is max used 60% and the CPU average is around 60%. I’m plotting in GUI, because I don’t yet understand the CLI completely. This is according to HWinfo which is running all the time…
Can someone, PLEASE, give me some kind of advice, how to improve the plotting speed, as I thing I should be making at least 10-15 plots a day…I guess the bottleneck is in the SSDs, but they are pretty good too and also in raid 0.
I use external 4TB HDDs on usb 3.0 for final destination, the SSDs are temporary space.
I have about 5TiB plots right now, after 6 days plotting, with some pauses for configuration change.
Also, I have a problem with the GUI. Yesterday I restarted the PC, so I had to sync again and is still not synced (since yesterday). When I try to reload it for the GUI menu. it stuck to connecting to wallet.
