Currently, the forks all use Chia plots. You build the wallet from your Chia mnemonic and can use your key and plots on the other network. I currently have Chia (Machinaris), Chaingreen and Flax (Win10 GUIs) all farming the same plots.

 

I don't know a whole lot about dockers and how they work, so I can't comment much. That being said, I imagined just having 3 separate dockers, one for each blockchain.

 

So basically you can farm the others for free?

 

Where do I sign up lol. What is there to lose?

 

Separate dockers would be fine I agree for those that want to do this.

 

Although if they take off, combining them into a single docker would be interesting and cut the setup time by 2/3's.

Overview: Support thread for Machinaris Application: Machinaris - https://github.com/guydavis/machinaris About: A pure-Docker solution for plotting and farming the Chia™ cryptocurrency on Un

[0.3.1] - 2021-06-04 After testing showed between 15% to 30% speedup on plotting, adopting Chiapos multithreaded library. Thanks to `hereisderek` for a great PR containing better rsync

open unriad terminal wondow, type the following   mkdir /mnt/ram mount -t tmpfs -o size=115G tmpfs /mnt/ram/   add path into your machinaris setup   inside mac

yeah I found the chiagreen site, good find on the flax.

 

Indeed, if I had to replot or use space exclusively for them I would not even consider it but if it shares the chia plots I figure it is worth looking into.

 

I also heard that the Makers of chia had this in mind from the start apparently, the ability for other coins/networks to piggyback off the chia framework or something.

 

The nail in the coffin at this point is I have nothing to loose, I will be creating a new wallet when pools come out anyways, It is farming on a dedicated machine with hpool sandboxed and my hpool funds will be withdrawn to another wallet as well, so since this wallet is already compromised, might as well go all in lol.

@guy.davis I installed the test version, but can't figure out how to turn on mad max, theres only one option for plotter drop down menu and even with changing config to suit a mad max plotter, with pool/farm key, Its not showing a log file, but I can tell it's only using 2 threads vs the full fat cpu.

EDIT: the config file is saved just like your wiki, but plotting never starts and goes straight to stopped, log for drop down menu says:

nohup: ignoring input Namespace(cmd='kill', idprefix=['efb07080']) Pausing PID 1556, plot id efb07080bad55792cdca8e0813f977d528a2515adfc55864e8e210bcffe7dc6d Will kill pid 1556, plot id efb07080bad55792cdca8e0813f977d528a2515adfc55864e8e210bcffe7dc6d Will delete 211 temp files Are you sure? ("y" to confirm): killing... cleaning up temp files...

I followied this guide: https://github.com/guydavis/machinaris/wiki/Plotman#plotting

and

https://github.com/guydavis/machinaris/wiki/MadMax

 

it does not work. machinaris doesnt know what the madmax type is.

Hi, please create an Issue on Github, attaching your full plotman.yaml and also a screenshot showing full browser window with every version number at bottom.  That will help me diagnose the issue.  Also, drop into the Discord tomorrow for more hand's on help.  Thanks for testing!

 

2021-06-20: Just pushed an updated test image to DockerHub with multiple fixes.  Please be sure to pull the latest if you are giving it another try.

Good day! The next version of Machinaris is now available: v0.4.0. Thanks to all those who tested and provided feedback during the release cycle.  All contributions are appreciated!

 

Changes:

- Support for the Madmax plotter, in addition to the official Chia plotter.

- Manage multiple plotters, harvesters, and farmers across your LAN, all from a single WebUI on one controller system.

- A full REST API for developers to extend and integrate with Machinaris.

 

Notes:

 * Due to configuration file changes in Plotman, you may need to save a new config on your Settings | Plotting page:

 *  --> get a Chia plotter template

 *  --> get a Madmax plotter template

Downloaded new version and trying to use the new madmax.  I think I changed my config for plotting as per recommendation but each time I try to start it it says "starting" then "plotman started successfully" but no cores being used and nothing showing up in plotting as ongoing and it says "idle" at the top.

 

My config:

        # scheduler will use all of them and distribute jobs among them.
        # It assumes that IO is independent for each one (i.e., that each
        # one is on a different physical device).
        #
        # If multiple directories share a common prefix, reports will
        # abbreviate and show just the uniquely identifying suffix.
        # REMEMBER ALL PATHS ARE IN-CONTAINER, THEY MAP TO HOST PATHS
        tmp:
                - /madmaxdisk9

        # directories. This contains a map of tmp directory names to
        # attributes. If a tmp directory and attribute is not listed here,
        # it uses the default attribute setting from the main configuration.
        #
        # Currently support override parameters:
        #     - tmpdir_max_jobs
        #tmp_overrides:
                # In this example, /plotting3 is larger than the other tmp

        #tmp2: /plotting2

        # One or more directories; the scheduler will use all of them.
        # These again are presumed to be on independent physical devices,

Same exact situation, I try to get madmax running and it fails every time, no matter what setting I change. The Stagger major/minor limits have changed from 4, 0, 1 to 1 , 1, 1. I've changed every setting at least a couple times. Tried the vanilla copy of template, same result. All my temps dir are in one drive because I only have one plotting drive, seperate folders and directories added in docker path as plotting2 and plotting3. Every time i restart, plot setting reverts back with 4 threads, pool/farm key disappear. I have like 30 different .yaml's in my plotman folder from previous settings versions, can't delete any because appdata permissions locked, I'm at a loss, I'm confused. Log says max jobs 6, but that was a setting on my chia yaml, not madmax currently saved. Chia plotter worked at first when I updated docker, till I figured out that have to change Type: chia to Type: madmax

 

EDIT: I just switched setting back and Chia plotter runs fine

working great so far, I created a ramdisk to use as '-2' tmp drive

here are the command lines i use in unraid terminal

 

mkdir /mnt/ram

mount -t tmpfs -o size=110G tmpfs /mnt/ram/

 

to remove ramdisk later, make sure it's empty

 

rm -f -R /mnt/ram/*.*

umount -f /mnt/ram

rmdir /mnt/ram

 

make sure to add the ramdisk (/mnt/ram) to your settings in machinaris docker

here is what mine looks like,

Downloaded new version and trying to use the new madmax.  I think I changed my config for plotting as per recommendation but each time I try to start it it says "starting" then "plotman started successfully" but no cores being used and nothing showing up in plotting as ongoing and it says "idle" at the top.

 

My config:

 

# Learn more about Plotman at https://github.com/ericaltendorf/plotman
# https://github.com/ericaltendorf/plotman/wiki/Configuration#versions
version: [1]

 

 

Apologies to @Ystebad and @HATEME for encountering this error in the documentation on my part.  The version line of the Madmax-enabled plotman.yaml should be:

version: [2]

This was incorrectly left at '1' in the Wiki doc example.  I have just now corrected it.   

 

Please try with that setting. Just be sure to set your Farmer and Pool public keys.  Sorry for the trouble and thanks for reporting it!

Nice numbers!  Plotting to RAM on Unraid is really effective with Madmax.  Thanks for helping above as it showed me the error in my plotman.yaml example.  Btw, my plotman migrate script looks to have left a double entry in your plotman.yaml above.  You only need one pair of 'farmer_pk' and 'pool_pk' lines.  Safe to remove the bottom redundant pair.  Thanks again for the assistance!

I got mad max working, my 3700x unraid rig is getting 69min plot time, not sure what my dual xeon rig is yet, but phase 1 is 40min alone, so...better than parallel, but its showing it's age. Is there way to have the finished plot transfer outside of the max job queue. After first plot finished, I know from my main pc running mad max that a transferred plot takes an extra 15-20 min, first madmax just used an extra powershell mover.ps1, but now its integrated together and mover runs in background and starts the next plot. Machinaris stops the queue to wait on moving the finished plot. Could set two max jobs and set stagger to 69 min, but I got a feeling over 10 or 20 plots, those times would vary enough to overlap and make the cpu go nuclear, then cause a meltdown in the cores.

 

EDIT: plot transfer added 26 min to my 69min plot times, maybe global max jobs 2, but temp dir max jobs 1, I'm just using one nvme drive as temp drive. and 2nd temp dir just points to same drive.

I'm actually seeing Unraid not be able to deal with plotting in RAM, although I am using /tmp not a dedicated ram disk. This may be more related to madmax than anything else. I'm currently testing different settings to see if I can get madmax working reliably.

@Spazhead is there any reason you don't use /tmp instead of creating and actual ram disk?

It looks like Unraid gets grumpy when ram usage inside /tmp reaches half of the overall system memory. So I'm just going to add the mounting of the tmpfs to my go file so it will be automatically mounted during boot.

yes because when i just used /tmp, it would crash on me, until i found that creating a dedicated ramdisk was more stable.  just trial and error testing.

Very excited to use Machinaris for mad max plotting, used it before when parallel plotting.  Only thing I am waiting for is the -v variable being implemented (maybe it has been I just haven't seen it)

 

In the meantime I've been using Ubuntu Playground.  I am assuming most of the steps are (or will be) the same so here it goes:

Real quick system specs: Dell R720, 2x Xeon 12/24, 128GB ram ddr3 1866, 1TB cache nvme, 2TB Chia nvme


To create ramdrive:
On boot before launching playground or mach or whatever open terminal and use this (plotram is my ramdrive name):

mkdir -p /tmp/plotram && mount -t tmpfs -o size=115g tmpfs /tmp/plotram


Edit container and add path:
ramdrive
/plotram

/tmp/plotram/

 

Make sure your paths are set up correctly for chia specific nvme plotting, final plot location, etc.

 

Profit!

 

In Ubuntu Playground without -v variable I was getting 30-33 minute plots (512 buckets default).  Now with -v, using 32 threads, 256 buckets for Ph 1+2 and 128 buckets for Ph 3+4 I'm getting 27 minute plots consistently.

Here's what I copy and paste into ubuntu playground:
./build/chia_plot -t /plotting1/ -2 /plotram/ -d /plots/ -k 32 -u 256 -r 32 -v 128 -n 300 -f FARMERKEY -p POOLKEY

128GB is plenty in Unraid as long as you dont have a bunch of other crap running.  Been plotting away with no errors for days now.

Also (in Ubuntu anyways) theres no wait after a plot is done to start a new one, the finished plot transfers to final location while the next plot is churning away, typically finishes somewhere later in Phase 1.  I may have missed it, but does this new Machinaris behave the same?  And any -v possibilities?

Plotting complete for me, one month to complete 1181 plots on existing old hard drives. 90% of these drives have CRC & Bad sectors on them so i don't trust them for real data, but for chia i don't care if it fails.

lets earn some Chia hopefully..

 

Note: Disk 1 is for surveillance only, no chia

 

Thanks Machinaris for making it easier!!!!

i keep getting the above error, between 65-600+ seconds yet. when im watching the summary screen i see everything under 1 second. HDD's dont spin down, local on the array not network or anything. any advice for tracing down the problem?

Hi,

 

I wanted to try the MADMAX plotting, so I killed my current plots (only just started), removed all temp files, changed the config and am trying to start plotting again..

 

However the system does not start plotting and the plotting screen shows some confusing information... It says its plotting, but Tower is stopped (I only have 1 system) and the plots that I previouslyt killed are still in the list:

 

Any idea? 

 

I switched back to the chia plotter, that works fine.

Think I found why madmax was not working... Will try again -after- I have read the instructions :-)

 

(EDIT: In the meantime MADMAX is now plotting)

 

Still think something is going on with the plotting screen though...

 

After starting chia plotting again I now:

 

stopped plotting

killed the running plot

 

The files are still in the temp folder and the screen still shows the old plot:
