- If Xplotter run as Admin (administrator rights) - it's create empty (zero'd) plot much faster
- You can turn off Xplotter at any time, and later may continue plotting (works only at NTFS)
XPlotter_avx.exe -id ID -sn start_nonce [-n nonces] -t threads [-path d:\plots]
XPlotter_avx.exe - for CPU with AVX support
XPlotter_sse.exe - for CPU w/o AVX support
If not specified the number of nonces, or it is 0, the file is created on all the free disk space.
The calculation of nonces is in threads. Parallel computing nonces (after the first iteration) is asynchronously recorded to the drive without using the system write caching (FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING).
If the free RAM is not enough to generate the nonces, the nonces number will be decreased, the number of threads remains unchanged.
When you start the plotter creates an empty file desired size, it prevents a write error if for some reason the drive space is reduced while plotting.
Recording to drive produced in 4096 iterations, of approximately by 512 KB.
