How to Plot Chia with GPUs in Virtual Machines – Part 5

  • Install Proxmox for Chia plotter T620
  • Single 40Gbe NIC can handle 2 plotters well, 3 plotters we start to bottleneck
  • VM storage setup (zfs for vm store)
  • Passthru GPUs
    • All Features and Rom bar. Not primary GPU.
  • Mount remote file stores via NFS
  • Benchmark your write speed to ensure 700 MB/s per plotter can be hit (a good idea to do if following and on 40Gbe)
  • Download plotting software
  • Choose your level of compression and K size (K32 is gonna be okay I think)
  • Start your plotting!


sudo apt update -y && sudo apt upgrade -y

sudo apt install openssh-server

sudo systemctl enable ssh

sudo systemctl status ssh

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-525 nvtop screen vim htop sysstat qemu-guest-agent nfs-common git -y

sudo systemctl start qemu-guest-agent

sudo systemctl enable qemu-guest-agent

sudo shutdown now

#attached the PCIe GPU

sudo mkdir -v /mnt/dataA{A,B,C,D,E}

sudo mount -t nfs /mnt/dataAB

git clone

cd chia*/cuda*/linux/x86*

./cuda_plot_k32 -n -1 -C 8 -t /mnt/dataAB/ -d /mnt/dataAB/ -f  (your values)  -c (your values)
