Many harvester lookup times over 5 seconds

Hey guys, maybe someone here can figure this out.

I’m having many harvester lookup time warnings that time is above 5 secs.

I have 330TiB. If I take it down to 250 TiB, I don’t get any warnings. But the more I add, the more frequently I get warnings.

I also added many usb splitters to spread out the hard drives, but nothing changed.

The strange thing is that every two\three plots in the warning (from different hard drives, and even from different usb splitter) get EXACTLY the same lookup times. For example:

2021-05-15T13:35:31.992 harvester chia.harvester.harvester: WARNING Looking up qualities on A:\final\plot-k32-2021-04-21-19-15-d838fa5819672b3d57208d3464b5f79cf5725054aa018281135f89550c45ee64.plot took: 5.674980878829956. This should be below 5 seconds to minimize risk of losing rewards.

Any idea what’s the problem and how to fix?

The actual cutoff is 30 seconds, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it, unless it keeps trending up and you see times over 30 seconds.

But I’ve won only one block in the last 17 days.
An extreme decrease in rewards.
Stopped winning blocks since upgrading from 1.1.1.

So, I’m very worried. My chia project has stopped working.

Hi! i’m currently investigating the same error. In my log i tend to see a similar time just over 5sec from the drive i’m plotting toif there is an active copying phase. i also see times around 13 sec from the other drives not currently being plotted to and i guess this is because of drive spin up.

I can recommend https://www.chiaplotsimulator.com/ as a tool to see if the error coincides with a plot copy phase

Well, netspace has increased 6x since launch (1 EiB to 6+ EiB) so unless you have increased your plots 6x since launch… you are going to win less.
