The harvest inspector is a great tool to visualize how efficient you're farming. If you upload your Chia log file, the harvester will read every line to see if you are farming correctly. It is very common for large or small things to go wrong while harvesting Chia. Use this tool to become a better spacefarmer!
How to use the Harvest Inspector?
Using the Harvest Inspector is easy; just upload your Chia debug log.
There are two things you need to keep in mind:
- You need to have log level INFO enabled for your Chia logs. Not sure how to do this? See our debugging guide on how to do it.
- If you want to use your current log, please copy+paste it first. Otherwise the inspection will be aborted if the log gets written.
Note that no information is being uploaded, everything is calculated clientside.
Interpreting your results
After uploading your Chia debug log and the tool is done calculating, you will see three things:
- The Results bar
- The Harvest graph
- The Proofs graph
The Results bar shows you the statistics that the Harvest Inspector took from your log.
|Total plots that passed the plot filter
|<your plots> * 9
|Harvest per minute
|Plots per minute that passed the plot filter
|<your plots> * 9 / 1440
|Proofs per hour
|Partials submitted per hour
|<your plots> * 10 / <your avg difficulty>
|Lookup time (avg)
|Average time it took your plots to pass the plot filter
|below <30s, ideally <5s
|Your total unique plot count
The harvest graph, that looks in fact a bit like a farm field, is where you can do most debugging. By hovering over the squares you can see for every minute how many plots passed the plot filter. Ideally, this should show mainly white squares meaning that all is going well. If it shows a lot of dark blue squares however, it might be an indication something is wrong at your farm. In this case you need to start debugging (no-one likes bugs at their farm). Try doing it yourself using our debugging guide or ask our experts on the Spacefarmer discord.
The proofs graph shows whether you are submitting partials to the pool on a per minute basis. Here, the same applies: more white is more better.
