Today I will explain how to set multi mining instances on Windows
Keep in mind that each instance needs CPU with 2 threads or more and 4 GB RAM
You need to prepare address where you will be mining on You can get one from GUI
Ok let us start:
First You need to go drive C and create folders that will be holding blockchain data I make a folder named 1
Next, open CMD and navigate to luck-win/luck:
Then we will start the first miner by command :
luck.exe --miner.forterbase "YourAddressHere" --miner.threads "2" --mine
This will start first miner it will start mining from block 1 but as soon as it connect to seed nodes You will see info Mining aborted due to sync :
After that node will sync and start mining straight after sync.
Now You can minimize the first cmd window and open a new one.
Navigate again to luck-win/luck
The next step is to start second node with :
luck.exe --ipcdisable --datadir=C:/1 --port=30010 --miner.forterbase "Your address here" --miner.threads "2" --mine
You will see similar situation as before :
Again You will see info Mining aborted due to sync.
That is all if you want to add more instances need more folders on drive C:/ called for example 2,3,4 etc...
The change is simple datadir and port
luck.exe --ipcdisable --datadir=C:/2 --port=30011 --miner.forterbase "Your address here" --miner.threads "2" --mine
luck.exe --ipcdisable --datadir=C:/3 --port=30012 --miner.forterbase "Your address here" --miner.threads "2" --mine
Keep in mind You need a lot of rams because the system also using Your resources !!!!
