I’m running a full node on a Raspberry Pi (Yes I know.) The wallet and DB are located on an external NVME USB drive… so, it’s not as bad as running on the internal disk.
OS is Ubuntu 64 21.10 with latest patches.
Python is 3.9.
Chia version is 1.2.11 (current as of time of this post).
A bit of background…
I initially was running a full node and plotting on a server-class dual cpu machine. That was working out great, but was chewing a LOT of electricity when it was idly farming. I was also running ChiaDog to keep me informed when something went sideways.
So, I decided to keep the big machine for plotting only and got a RPi 4B 8GB model with a high speed 256GB SDHC.
Connected to this are my drives directly into the four USB ports. (Yes, I’m still very small right now with only three large farming drives and one DB/Wallet drive).
So when I moved the config from the big machine to the RPi - everything seemed to go well. I set up the drives (Formatted NTFS and 1024k block sizes) in Ubuntu. Installed Chia. Copied over my .chia folder completely. Edited the config.yaml for chia to point to the new mount points for the plots.
Started it up and it ran fine - for weeks. Then it stopped. I started getting alerts from Chiadog that the harvester wasn’t running. I was getting alerts from my pool that my harvesters weren’t running. Something was amiss.
Long story-short, I’ve reinstalled chia and chiadog. Re-initialized my chia instance from scratch and re sync’d the entire blockchain db.
For some reason I can’t figure out, the harvesters won’t work!
Chiadog keeps reporting that the harvester isn’t doing anything.
My pool keeps reporting that I’m not farming.
I did a chia plot check and everything looks good. All of my plots are there and look okay from what I can tell.
I’ve rebooted several times. Reinstalled Chia.
My router has a port forward to the appropriate IP. The IP of the Raspberry Pi hasn’t changed. I see incoming connections from other computers… I’m at the limit of what I know to look for next…
Any thoughts on what to look for next?
