Hi! we would need to see some logs to work out what’s going on here. It looks like you’re using a third party script to run your farmer so you may need to reach out to the provider to ask how to get logs.

Also, you are running a 2GiB plot which is both the minimum and very small relative to total space pledged. It could take some time to earn any rewards.

@Jim-Subspace This is my logs:

Can I increase the plot size? What is the maximum plot size?

You can increase the plot size by running init again. You will need to make sure you put all the same values in exactly the same as last time apart from reward address, node name and plot size. That will ensure you don’t have to re-sync.

These instructions may be available on the third party script documentation.

There is no limit on plot size. You should pledge as much as you feel comfortable with. The larger the plot, the more rewards you have a chance of earning.

@Jim-Subspace I tried to set my plot size is 200 GB but pulsar info still is 2 GB. What is my mistake?

This is a known bug. The team are looking into it. You can check your logs when you startup to see the true plot size.
