@mushy - try this:
"Mode" : "pool",
"Server" : "burst.ninja",
"Port" : 8124,
@mushy If you have questions over mining at ninja, ask here - I'm very familiar with the pool.
The "Cannot get info" message is down to a mis-formed url to the wallet server, but it'll depend on which miner you're using. The correct URL is "walletServer=http://burst.ninja.8124" but it'll need to be formatted to your miner's requirements. I strongly recommend sing Luxe's GPU miner or Blago's CPU miner - the POCminer was really just a POC.
@dmp1ce I was originally looking to create very large, fully optimized plot files to minimize the mining time. However I had problems trying to plot a 16TB plot file, so reverted to smaller ones (~4TB), but I didn't bother re-configuring the ZFS layout. In hindsight I should have, but I'm not going to replot it all.
@dmp1ce All of the plot files are read, but only 1 specific scoop (1 / 4096th of the file) is read. Depending on wether the plot is optimized or not will determine if those scoops are in one sequential location within the file, or all over the place.
ZFS is 16 drives in 4 stripes - no redundancy. Touch wood, but haven't lost a LUN yet.
The NetApp Storage Appliance is a SAN, optimized for running as a huge raid. You could potentially setup a LUN per disk and then treat them as individual disks (I'm not familiar enough with the NetApp to say if this is definitely doable - some of the appliances virtualize the storage in such a way that multiple small LUN's might be counter-productive), but I'd use it to present one of more large LUNs.
Depending on the appliance it's probably either Fiber Channel or iSCSI, so you'll need a PC (preferably) running a Server OS to do the actual Plotting/Mining. It's not the most straight forward setup, but entirely doable - my primary miner is a Windows Server VM on an HP Workstation running VMware linked to a Solaris ZFS server over Infiniband.
If you need any help getting this setup, feel free to ask.
@Propagandalf No problem - if you have any issues with it again, post here and I'll check it.
@Propagandalf , try it now, the wallet had partially crashed. I've restarted it, and it's synced up and running properly again.
@luxe Thanks, I'll give them a test.
Plotter & Miner shouldn't be tied to any specific, but I'm assuming for wallet related functions it's utilizing IE on the system - why not upgrade to 10 ?
