NEW VERSION 0.6: POC2 Support
Automates plotting for BURST coin
IMPORTANT: With version 0.6 POC1 is discontinued due to upcoming hardfork
The plotter works only! on Windows (as platform specific executables are used internally)
Before you can start with BURST mining you need to prepare your hard drive. This process is called Plotting. While plotting your disks will be filled with so called nonces, kind of pre-calculated values, which will be read while mining. The creation of a plot is a quite time consuming process. Furthermore, you need to be sure that your plots won't overlap, that is nonce range won't overlap. The Autoplotter takes entirely care of this. You simply define the size and number of plots and the rest is done automatically. That way, plotting become very easy.
The Autoplotter is based on nodejs (>= Version 8.9 (LTS Carbon)), so - if not already installed - you need to install NodeJS first. Once installed simply call
npm i -g burst-autoplotter
Afterwards, you just need to call
autoplot in the console.
You need to run as administrator
The application supports several commands for different purposes, from version, help, to setting up notifications.
At all time you may use the following options:
|version||v||Shows current version||
|help||h||Shows help for current command||
|cache <file>||c||Defines the name of the cache file||
The default cache file is stored in
This is the main command to run the plotter.
run is the default command, such that
autoplot run and
|extended||e||Runs the plotter in extended mode||
The extended mode allows you to set further settings like thread number and memory usage for plotting.
The setup command allows to execute additional setups, like configuring email transport, or Telegram push notification There are no other options, than the common functions, but following sub-commands are possible:
|Runs email configuration||
|telegram||Runs Telegram configuration||
If configured correctly, you'll receive a success notification. Of course, it's possible to receive as email and push notification.
Per default, Google considers authentication using login and password as not sufficient to met todays security needs. You'll receive an email about a blocked sign in then, when trying to use Gmail as your mail transporter. In that case, you need to configure your Gmail Account to allow less secure apps.
The Autoplotter uses the Middleman-Bot for delivering notification.
You just need to add the bot in your Telegram messenger,
and you'll receive a token (e.g.
2a3137d2-2d6a-4e4d-985a-df0d278426b0) that you need to enter while setup.
