Run "geth" Miner in Multiple Threads
4-Thread Miner not Able to Mine Blocks
- You need to install 64-bit "geth" to be able
to run the "miner" module to generate new blocks to grow the blockchain
on your private Ethereum network.
- Running "geth" miner with 1 thread is too slow to generate new blocks.
- Running "geth" miner with 4 threads is faster, but still not fast
enough to generate new blocks.
- Running "geth" miner with 4 threads reaches the maximum CPU capacity
on a home computer.
- The difficulty level needs to be lowered to build a private Ethereum network
and grow its blockchain on a home computer.
