This is a new implementation of a chia plotter which is designed as a processing pipeline, similar to how GPUs work, only the “cores” are normal software CPU threads. As a result this plotter is able to fully max out any storage device’s bandwidth, simply by increasing the number of “cores”, ie. threads.

For <poolkey> and <farmerkey> see output of `chia keys show`. <tmpdir> needs about 220 GiB space, it will handle about 25% of all writes. (Examples: './', '/mnt/tmp/') <tmpdir2> needs about 110 GiB space and ideally is a RAM drive, it will handle about 75% of all writes. Combined (tmpdir + tmpdir2) peak disk usage is less than 256 GiB. In case of <count> != 1, you may press Ctrl-C for graceful termination after current plot is finished or double Ctrl-c to terminate immediatelly\ Usage: chia_plot [OPTION...] -n, --count arg Number of plots to create (default = 1, -1 = infinite) -r, --threads arg Number of threads (default = 4) -u, --buckets arg Number of buckets (default = 256) -v, --buckets3 arg Number of buckets for phase 3+4 (default = buckets) -t, --tmpdir arg Temporary directory, needs ~220 GiB (default = $PWD) -2, --tmpdir2 arg Temporary directory 2, needs ~110 GiB [RAM] (default = <tmpdir>) -d, --finaldir arg Final directory (default = <tmpdir>) -w, --waitforcopy Wait for copy to start next plot -p, --poolkey arg Pool Public Key (48 bytes) -c, --contract arg Pool Contract Address (64 chars) -f, --farmerkey arg Farmer Public Key (48 bytes) -G, --tmptoggle Alternate tmpdir/tmpdir2 (default = false) --help Print help Make sure to crank up <threads> if you have plenty of cores, the default is 4. Depending on the phase more threads will be launched, the setting is just a multiplier. RAM usage depends on <threads> and <buckets>. With the new default of 256 buckets it's about 0.5 GB per thread at most. Make sure to crank up <threads> if you have plenty of cores, the default is 4.
