Hi everyone new member here. I wanted to ask a few questions.
I've been testing out setting up a wallet and mining on Ubuntu 16.04 with a VM on Windows 10.
Is there a simpler way of checking if your mining other than ./src/zcash-cli getinfo ?
Is gen=1 in zcash.conf and being synced all I need to be up and running?
At current diff ~260-300 how long would it take to find a block with a fast CPU and are blocks every 2 minutes on testnet?
CPU doesn't seem to heat up enough for me to be sure I'm mining unless I set procgenproclimit=#ofcores and yet again I'm not sure.
Both an i7 quad core processor and a 3930K (6 core cpu) gives me very close numbers 33 vs 25 respectively. I suppose thats due to single core performance or am I missing something here?
