Is my farm working properly? Figures

Getting a bit twitchy as I haven’t found a block in over 6 months so need to ensure everything is setup ok. Appreciate it is likely just down to (bad) luck.

I have about 3500 plots across two machines. Approx 350TB. All NFT plots

I’ve run Chia Harvester watcher & both machines logs looking similar & vast majority of lookup times <30 sec

Machine one (harvester)

Total attempts 140990
Average lookup time 0.38 sec
Proofs found 5473

1 sec 2963
5 sec. 46
30 sec. 3

I’ve since joined Spacepool to try & get an idea if any other issues. Seems to be working OK in the pool - 100% valid partials & 0.08 XCH payout daily.

Just wondering if it is luck or if there is something else I’m missing?
Do the numbers above look ok?

It’s just luck. I only have 390 plots (38 TiB) I won twice already once when I was in spacepool after 5 months, then once when I decided to go solo after I won. The second time I won was 1.5 months after the first. So here’s hoping I’ll win again soon. I haven’t added new disks yet as I’m still thinking maybe my 390 plots will give me more luck.

Some won with much lesser number of plots than mine.


Yeah, sometimes it may be like that, so you just need to be patient :triumph:

Just have to wait, I rebooted a harvester on Monday and two hours later got 2 blocks.

I’m assuming you’ve not had 100% uptime due to upgrades of client, db corruption etc.
That is the only downside to solo, downtime along with your few slow responses could cause you to not get your only coins that you could have received.

My buddy with 400tb finally won two in two days after 6 months.
He had 200tb at August last year and finished the last 200tb in November.

Cheers everyone - that was my suspicion but was just making sure the numbers didn’t indicate a major issue elsewhere I was overlooking. In particular, I don’t know how you determine expected “proofs” on the farmr monitor or similar monitoring software

Yea, think that is where the few slow responses come from -

Occasional network downtime also.

Have auto-restart set up now which should minimise downtime.

It is probably just luck. For me, I restart the hole setup from time to time mostly after a hdd is filled, dont know if it needs to… I hit some weeks ago 3x within a week during, around the last dust storm. And i win constantly with my 2700 plots every 1,5 month as predicted.

Are you eating Dominosteine all by yourself??? Send some to FL USA

It is plain luck. I went six months with no block wins and then I won a block two weeks in a row. I have now gone 3.5 months with no block wins. Go figure. Also, I never implemented the lite wallet. WIth the NFT Air Drop, was this going to be taken care of in the new release?

1.3 has the integrated wallet Larry.

I looked on and did not see that version. Is it coming out soon? Even when it does, I need to wait a few weeks to shake out any potential issues. :wink:

Update - thought I’d join Spacepool for another 24 hrs to make sure partials remained ok - just won a block! (0.25 payout :joy:)

Hold the line. Keep the faith!


Out very soon, imminent.

I’ll update as soon as it comes out so can be the guinea pig.

TY for taking one for the team :slight_smile: I hope they did the proper DVT so it is a clean release for the most part.
