Once you’ve edited your config file, you need to run plotman plot to get it started plotting (I am working on submitting a change to the doc to say this!)
If you have a fast machine, the default settings are very conservative. I’m still fine tuning them but I’ve got an i9-9900 with 64GB RAM and needed to crank them up a lot
If you get an error saying “file not found” when you first run it, you need to manually create the log folder that the config file points to
I set my minimum time between plots to 1 minute, because I think this constraint is arbitary and unnecessary when you get the other paramaters right (I have a fast CPU and 64GB of RAM with only a 2TB and 1TB SSD, so I’m limited by SSD space more than anything. I want to use as much of the SSD capacity as possible)
Plotman is very new and there’s a bunch of work that needs to be done on it. We know it works on Linux. Windows…maybe. There’s a mention of it maybe working on the Plotman Github page, but you’re own your own basically.
