As a follow up, i thought it best to start a new thread with questions regarding a functional and running node.
Again, note I followed this instruct: Mining with docker remotely
Can anyone please confirm that my node / CPU / GPU mining rig appears to be setup correctly?
On one rig, i have:
5 AMD RX580 GPU, 3 with 4GB of memory and 2 with 8GB
A) I set my router to forward ports 33133 and 4202 to the rig.
B) I set my
constants.xml as follows:
<CUDA_GPU_MINE>false</CUDA_GPU_MINE> <FULL_DATASET_MINE>false</FULL_DATASET_MINE> <OPENCL_GPU_MINE>false</OPENCL_GPU_MINE> <REMOTE_MINE>false</REMOTE_MINE> <MINING_PROXY_URL>http://127.0.0.1:4202/api</MINING_PROXY_URL> <CHECK_MINING_RESULT_INTERVAL>4</CHECK_MINING_RESULT_INTERVAL> <GETWORK_SERVER_MINE>true</GETWORK_SERVER_MINE> <GETWORK_SERVER_PORT>4202</GETWORK_SERVER_PORT>
C) launched the docker with the following config:
name (default) zilliqa
Public IP Address: 108.xx.xx.xx
Port (default): 33133
D) a valid address, private and public key were generated
*at this point i believe CPU mining is setup and running correctly
E) On the same rig, i kicked off the miner, pointing to my public IP despite being same rig:
zilminer -P zil://email@example.com:4202
*The connection was successful.
*All GPUs are currently sitting idle at 0/h.
F) i installed the
zilliqa-node-ident script in my
join directory and ran it:
tail -n 5000 zilliqa-00001-log.txt | python zilliqa-identify.py
*the result output: normal
With that, everything seems to be running correctly, but i am not sure, since, well <— n00b
So here are my questions:
- Is this setup correct for both the docker and zilminer?
- In order to mine and earn rewards, i need to let both the docker and miner run on into the next DS Epoch?
- Will i even have a realistic chance at earning any rewards / is solo mining practical?
- If my chances are small, should i look to join a mining pool? like this one: https://pool.getzil.com
I decided to try and participate in mining Zilliqa because i was under the impression it was designed to be truly decentralized for all and thus…
Please, any response greatly appreciated, truly. thank you.
