I am about to give up this plotting caper and refractor the hardware for something productive. I recently acquired what I thought was a reasonably powerful server for plotting with 2 * 6 cores/12threads / (Dual Xeon Sixcore 2 * L5640 - 2.26Ghz ) an 24gb ram
I have been doing some test runs but I am looking at +12 hours a plot and even with doing 3 plots simultaneously with 30 minute separation but that still took ~16 hours…
I am awaiting a M.2 adapter card to add 2 * 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD but not even sure it is worth it.
Can someone please put me out of my misery… please
This is all before I try to understand what is the best way to plot / pool / madmax etc… It is all feels like it is heading into deep technical territory.
Thanks for completing my otherwise lazy Sunday.
