Plot size setting not acurate

Hello, I was under the impression that each subplot is about 103 GiB, but maybe that is not true.

I have a farmer set at --plot-size 9800G but it generated 171 sub plot folders. They range in size between 2.2 GiB and 114 GiB

The sum of all of these still is 9.4 TiB. I wonder why the allocation in the sub plot dirs varies so much.

@ivan-subspace can you take a look at this?

Did you increase your plot size after node and farmer restart?

I did that too, while trying to figure out, while some plot dirs are not 103 G or more, but definitely even before increasing the size, the distribution was uneven.

We don’t have plot resizing implemented yet, so in case you increase your plot size after some time you will get incorrect plots (therefore you won’t get rewards for that space). You should resync now with updated plot size (wipe all the node and farmer’s data and start over)

Ok thanks, can you share in a few words why the node is tightly connected to the farmer? Why can’t I wipe out farmer only, have it replot and keep the synced node state?
