I currently have two PCs (#1 and #2), both plotting, and both storing their own plots on their own drives. I use the command line, on both PCs, to create plots (I know about MadMax, etc, but I would rather not add that to my confusion, until I understand more (see below).
My farming / harvesting (not sure what the difference is?) is running only on PC #1. Whatever needs to start, does so, when I start up the GUI.
PC #1 sees PC #2’s plots, by way of my mapping those drives between the two PCs (Map Network Drive). PC #2s drives are just another drive letter that PC #1 sees.
My config.yaml file simply contains the paths to all of my drives on PC #1 and PC #2.
Everything works. But is my configuration ideal?
I have no idea how to do this differently (or if I should do this differently?). But I read about multiple farmers, etc, and I do not understand what those people are doing. And I still have not wrapped my head around the the function of a farmer vs a harvester.
Somehow, I feel like I am not making the most of my set-up, due to my lack of understanding about farmers and harvesters, and how to make them work across both PCs.
I might add a PC #3. Do I just map their drives, too? Or is there a better way?
Since my set-up is working, and since I do not have an understanding of farmers and harvesters, I am hesitant to tinker with it. But I will if someone offers clear instructions on this topic.
Any help from anyone, on improving my setup will be appreciated (and please include the commands needed to run multiple harvesters / farmers)… as well as an explanation (or link) to help me understand farmers vs harvesters.
