How to submit mining order to the AE node?


#1

I have run a testnet AE node following this steps: https://github.com/aeternity/tutorials/blob/master/run-node-on-ubuntu-1804.md.
I have set mining: autostart to false.
Can I submit an order to the node to start mining using aecli?

From my personal experience - No, you can’t

But in theory when the pool code is ready and released then you can start any proper miner on any pc and point it to your pool address and mine with it without it having to be directly inside the node.

What you can do to have an external miner right now is to create a separate node that has mining enable and only start it when you need mining.
