I’m getting many warnings of plot look up qualities times higher than 5 secs.
This is new. I haven’t got that in the past and I’m not getting any rewards for over a week.
I have 330 TiB and everything seems to work fine, so expectation to win one block every 2 days now, and a week ago one block every day.
Could the reason be the look up time? And Is there any way to fix this?
I had this on a couple older drives that once in a while have a very slow response. I took one out of the farm for now. But the bothersome thing was how it hung up the log output. I only noticed this happen because I ran “chia farm summary” and it hung there for 15-20 seconds and no debug.log output either. Then, suddenly a huge log dump happend and the summary showed. At the top was that error. It was almost as if chia was hung up. So, yeah, took that drive right out! Haven’t seen the error since. I was thinking chia was more asynchronous though.

But I’m getting all these warnings on drives that are already filled up with plots.
The times used to be less than 5sec. Something changed in the last 10 days - may the software, maybe my configuration
It looks like you are using windows. I was getting these errors before. I haven’t had them since I made the following changes:
1 - Go to “Power & Sleep Settings”
2 - Click “Additional power settings” on the right panel.
3 - Expand “Show additional plans”.
4 - Select “High performance”.
5 - Select “Change Plan Settings”
6 - Select “Change advanced power settings”
7 - Under Hard disk → Turn off hard disk after, set this to 0
8 - Under USB Settings → “USB selective suspend settings”, set this to Disabled.
