Chia Network CLI (Command Line)

Some examples:

  • chia -h
  • chia plots -h
  • chia plots check -h
  • chia start -h

Locate the chia binary executable
Mac

If you installed Chia.app in your /Applications directory, you can find the chia binary at

/Applications/Chia.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar.unpacked/daemon/chia.

Do a sanity check in Terminal.app with

/Applications/Chia.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar.unpacked/daemon/chia -h

You can use that if you augment your PATH with

PATH=/Applications/Chia.app/Contents/Resources/app.asar.unpacked/daemon:$PATH

and then chia -h should work.

Windows

There is more than one chia.exe binary; the GUI is Chia.exe (two of these!) and the CLI is chia.exe. They are found in different places. Note the big C versus the little c.
The CLI one is the one referred to in this document, and for version 1.1.3 it can be found at

~\AppData\Local\chia-blockchain\app-1.1.3\resources\app.asar.unpacked\daemon\chia.exe

 

Chia basic commands

chia init – migrates files from an old version to the latest version after an update
chia start node – starts node only
chia start node -r – restarts the node
chia start farmer – starts the farmer, harvester, bode, and wallet
chia start farmer -r – restarts everything
chia plots check – checks all plot files
chia show -s – show status of node
chia farm summary – Show summary of the farmer
chia wallet show – Show wallet data
chia keys generate – Generate keys
chia keys add – Add keys / seed
chia stop -d all – turn off all Chia services
chia netspace – show the current size of the network
chia version – shows the current chia version

Command:

chia start {service}

 

Creating Chia Plots

chia create – creates a new plot according to the settings chosen in the start parameters
-k NUMBER – specifies the k-size for the plot – valid values are 32, 33, 34 or 35. A k32 plot requires about 240 GB of temp memory and ends up with about 100 GB.
-n NUMBER – the number of times a plot should be created
-b NUMBER – size of memory to be used in MB (default 4608 MB).
-f NUMBER – the farmer public key can be specified here
-p NUMBER – the public key of a pool can be specified here
-a NUMBER – here you can specify the fingerprint of the key to use, this option is useful if you have multiple private keys stored
-t PATH – specifies the path to the temp. directory
-2 PATH – specifies the path to the optional second temp. directory; this directory is used only for phase 3 and 4
-d PATH – specifies the path to the final directory where the plot will be saved
-r NUMBER – specifies the number of CPU cores to use in phase 1. 2 cores seems to be the best setting, more than 4 cores will give negative results.
-u NUMBER – specifies the number of buckets / “pots”. More pots require less ram but more accesses to the SSD/HDD. There is no advantage to use less pots, the default is 128
-e – disables bitfield plotting. This setting is not recommended.

Example below will create a k32 plot and use 4GB (note – not GiB) of memory.
chia plots create -k 32 -b 4000 -t /path/to/temporary/directory -d /path/to/final/directory
