Title: Optiminer/Zero v1.2.0 (AMD+NVIDIA GPU) Linux+Windows
Post by: optiminer on May 01, 2017, 11:55:30 PM
I am pleased to announce the new version of Optiminer/Zero for the ZERO coin that 8GB AMD+NVIDIA cards.

Support for 4GB cards is limited to AMD for now (it runs quite a bit slower with fewer memory!).

Note there are different binaries for 4GB and 8GB cards! The version for the 8GB cards runs faster but needs more RAM.

Download: https://github.com/Optiminer/OptiminerZero

For more information about ZERO see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1796036.0

Note this coin is different from Zcash/Zclassic/Zcoin!

For a Zcash/Zclassic miner see https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1686057.0

Is it possible to use mixed rigs?
I haven't seen an option to select which card to mine with in the miner...

Yes, you can select the cards with '-d N' were N is the number. Use --list-devices to see which device has which number. Then, just run two instances of the miner, one for the 8GB cards and one for the 4GB cards.

Linux version of the 4GB miner will be published soon.

8 mb version works fine for me - r9 390 8gb and rx480 8gb
4 mb version doesn't work - r9 390 8gb and r9 290x 4 gb - it starts and tries to mine but low gpu utilization and low diff shares
windows, 16.9.1 drivers

Fantastic work,

Just wanted to point out using the 4gb miner with an 8gb card, I tried using -i 2 but just cranks out a lot of invalid low diff shares. I can sort of figure out why, my lack of expertise can't explain it.

*edit*
any word on r9 280s?

Yeah, I tried -i 2 as well yesterday on a 8gb card. There must be a bug with handling the parallel instances somewhere. But it's rather pointless anyways as for 8gb using the other version is faster. So, I'll probably just remove the code handling parallel solutions and hardcode it to 1 for Zero.

It should work on any card that has at least 4gb of ram. If it doesn't try to reboot the machine and make sure the miner and nothing else runs.

Concurrent write detected, queuing.

This warning can normally be ignored. It might be a hint that there is a network issue. In this case the miner would disconnect and reestablish the network connection soon after that.

Good to know

on a 4GB? that would be more than decent, on an 8GB that's somewhat lower than I would expect, if you do have an 8GB model stick to v1.0

I'm getting these funky messages on my secondary rig. My cards were working fine in my primary rig but I moved them to the other empty one to space it all out
Anyway One card starts to mine, the other shows slight temp bump but nothing happens and I get this message:

OpenCL Error: Readbuffer Solutions1 (CL_Invalid_Event_Wait_List)

edit:
windows 10 build
G1840
H97 anniversary
8GB 1600ddr3
1000w platinum psu

I tried running two separate instances and whichever i start second, regardless which card, will give me the message and fail to mine. Regardless if my main gpu is in the slot proper or on a riser, or which is which. I'm not getting this problem with my other build that i believe only has 16 pcie lanes, although it is a quad.

**EDIT #2**

Had to roll-back entire system, took a few hours to get it running but it works. my guess is it was something that AMD's driver removal missed and so did DDU.

It depends on your cards, for the most part yes. 4GB=Maybe   8GB= Most likely. all depending on difficulty and exchange rates of what we're comparing.

Better not. Do you calculation ? Twelve nvidia 1080Ti will demolish this coin. Can not you figure out that this is a coin with a small market capitalization. You'll only make Zero is not profitable. You're just going to bring down a profit the rest of us, and you are leave Zero. This coin is for small miners, king.

So any word on this coin or any windows miner?  I was running Linux at a time, but went to Windozes to OC and do system tweaks--NVidia fought me in Ubuntu.  I can always make the rig a dual boot and run the Linux miner, but I don't see anyone on the Suprnova mining pool. 

Anyone have a current state of this coin?  Thanks!

Just put up version 1.2.0 for Windows which should support NVIDIA! Please test and report back. 1.2.0 is also a bit faster for AMD cards, so everyone is suggested to update!

Note that 1.2.0 uses a bit more memory. Make sure your virtual memory size in Windows is large enough! Page size > number of cards * 8GB!

I fired up the windows miner on my Win 10 Celeron 3900 rig 8 GB of ram with 3 * 1070s and set the virtual memory to min 28 gb to max of 30 gb.  CPU was max'd at 99.0% and would blue screen after about 3 mins.

EBWF mining ZEC puts the CPU at about 20%.  My results confirm what reb0rn21 was seeing.

Looks like I'll have to dual boot Ubuntu to mine this coin...

well maybe on purpose as they push CUDA, but ppl say there is solution something about GPU waiting on CPU, but I am not a coder so can`t help, not sure there is common fix but more a hard way to find it and make opencl work on NV with no CPU usage

PPS: or time to get used to cuda as AMD HW is out of stock soon we gona have a LOT more on NV hardware + NB mining cards hitting mining space! fu to AMD domination :D

this is true, but when shopping around for cards, nothing brings bang for buck like Radeon. Nvidia got better on ETH and it's king of certain algos and definitely best w/h in a lot of cases but they're usually much more expensive, even from a manufacturer refurb, they're still in very high demand too but, obtainable. I guess it's what sort of mining you plan on hedging.

In any case, I have my 390s mining at ~70W 11.1mhs with spikes to the more normal 130W range, one of them doesn't seem to dance much, staying a little higher but it is driving my screen i'm sure if i OCed them a bit and spent a day installing the perfect drivers I could hit +13mh/s each but at the cost of like 140w for 3mh/s. no bad shares either. Even the 390s are going extinct in the wild since they're the next best thing to a 470 at what was usually even under 200$US for a used one.

my 480/580s are nice and cool even with ref coolers in summer heat all under 70c with under 50% fans. going to be treating them with the best paste and pads anyway, without going liquid metal.
I am noticing my GPU1 in afterburner is showing 16% usage and 100% FSB the others read 100% usage and ~40% FSB, it's also the video-out gpu on this rig.

All measurements taken on Gpu-Z/Afterburner, kill-a-watt on its way. so 70W = about ~110W with pcie draw from my understanding. CPU is under 20% (spikes to 28) with some casual browsing, I can even play a couple of games to pass the time with minimal frame penalty so long as i disable that GPU.

Im really interested in what Vega can do. since it will have 16gb of HBM2, and double speed half-precision floating point operations bringing it to ~25Tflops, I always wondered if mining takes advantage of single or half pass... maybe something special can be drawn up? I would say it's a game changer, but at an MSRP of like 1000 USD and very limited supply many likely going into pre-built systems, there just won't be enough to go around.

Hi opti,

Why should I take your miner if he

A) more power needed, virtual Ram

B) less hash performance

C) I have to pay a fee 2.5%

D) the GTX 1080TI is not reasonably optimized.

So to point c, I like to pay a fee, but your miner must run significantly faster than the EWBF.


Best regards

EWBF has a miner for Zero parameters? that would be news to me.
I think you may be confused with Zcash since Opti does have a miner out for that too.

Need your help

same problem here with 2x1080ti.
Use 2 miner instances, one per card.
Still high cpu usage ~60%, but has been stable for 3 days.

I think you can have it run on one instance, with the flags  -i 1 -i 1 -d 0 -d 1.

as for virtual memory, you may want to set it a bit higher, at 20gb just to give it breathing room, see if it helps.

Hello friends, there is only one possible way, under Windows is the Zero Miner not really suitable, I have many days to healthy to solve the problem,

A) Ubuntu Linux 16.04
B) Nvidia driver
C) no more problems

On Windows, it seems to be a driver problem because the virtual memory is practically useless.

Good to know, I'm on Radeon/Windows and she's pretty stable, only if i start messing with settings opening and closing the miner multiple times do i get a hangup. Pagefile is important though, as is RAM to a lesser extent. Usually you want to keep pagefile to 1.5 times your RAM at most, and people may have presets limiting the amount of HD space it will use which will crash the miner on startup if you don't have enough allocated. the 1.5 number is just rule of thumb, you can go way beyond that but it comes at a cost of stability, and either way the more pagefile you use say ~32gb, the more you bottleneck your data speeds when doing anything else should you also use it for browsing/entertainment. also having a lot of pagefile will reduce it's lifespan by a bit. all in all having too little = bad. having more than enough = it just works normally.

This is why I recommend having a separate drive handle the pagefile only if you can help it, but ultimately not necessary and in a healthy rig with a healthy amount of ram and a modern HDD, you shouldn't notice a difference. you could always do the USB file transfer test too and see how much it slows down when the miner is running.

and also, don't use an SSD for pagefile, maybe for video games and normal computer stuff it's okay but when you're taxing it with ~30gb and it will not last very long. On the other hand I know Linux handles swapfile much more nicely, but i still wouldn't use that amount on an SSD.

Hello friends, there is only one possible way, under Windows is the Zero Miner not really suitable, I have many days to healthy to solve the problem,

A) Ubuntu Linux 16.04
B) Nvidia driver
C) no more problems

On Windows, it seems to be a driver problem because the virtual memory is practically useless.

You agree 100%, but under windows 10 Prof. 64 had the increase of the virtual memory no effect,
Also retrofit the physical memory
Or moving the pagefile.sys to an empty HDD was useless
Only the change to Linux brought success.

Shit WINDUMB :-)

Ha Ha yeah, well, i guess its Nvidia then, i'm aware it takes up much more CPU power for instance. My guess is that the windows geforce drivers aren't playing nice with the internal bus NB/SB. Maybe motherboard BIOS? I don't have an Nvidia rig to test it out though, but I would recommend a "newer" paging Hard drive that was designed after a time workstations only had 4gb of ram.

maybe playing with the sector size could be better for stability and/or even performance in the form of consistency, but again in the wild world of pagefile, everything depends.
*EDIT* tested different cluster sizes, got strange results, but I only have a 512 physical to play with (probably pushing it) and don't feel like formatting my 4kb main drive.

 also my assumption is the processor utilization,
 But this comes from the interplay (Low CPU - Strong GPU - not optimal programming Mining software.) I had previously 6 x GPU Gtx 1060 with EWBF Miner with 8 GB Ram no problem, now it is 2 GTX 1080 TI with 16 GB Ram and it Runs only under Linux properly

Hello my friend, i am really hoping that someone will come and say, hey, look, add -BLA BLA on the bat file and that's ok, or the next version working.
I don't know much of linux, you know ? I just used ubuntu for a year because it was simple to use, i don't know if i can format everything and go for linux. haha
thank you for your kindness, i will wait for some answers.
My best regards!

No panic, it has become even easier, simply ubuntu 16.04 install and the nvidia driver install, everything automatically, you do not have to configure the driver, it is all recognized and you can use directly all graphics cards

I could release a 6GB version for nvidia. Would that help? The problem with a 4GB version is that it would be much slower. You can see this in the AMD version, the 4GB version runs about at half the speed.

Yes I understand.. so really the solution is to upgrade my GPUs however I just don't want to do that right now because of cost. I am working with two GTX 970s so unfortunately 4GB would be my only option  :(

The best thing to get some Zeros then is probably just buying them. The price still is really low as the coin is undervalued.

Principally it should work with multiple NVidia CPUs. I suggest to try running it on Linux.

Fixing the high CPU usage will require rewriting the kernel in CUDA which is a major change, so will take time.

The miner only supports stratum mining at the moment.

I 've used help and I could see that the platform is different, but this still doesn't answer my question how to properly use the -d parameter to select one or a few of the gpus.

To overcome the issue mentioned in my previous post, I ran each platform (AMD & NVIDIA) on a different optiminer instance running concurrently, using the -c switch.

So regarding the Nvidia platform: I tried to mine zero with three GTX1070 gpus using optiminer zero 1.2, on Windows.
The miner works for about 10-12 min (or even less time) and then it stops mining.
I am using miner-entry pool, if this is relevant.
These are the lines that usually show up:

I have tried different gpu settings (default or overclocked core and memory clocks) and different optiminer pci-modes (zero up to three) as well as the experimental-kernel setting without any luck.
The miner either hangs or produces the above message.

On the same rig, I have two AMD RX cards which as explained above, I use to mine on a different instance of the miner, using the -c switch. These run without any problems.

Any ideas? I mean, besides switching to ethos/linux?

I hope you will release it soon optiminer

You mean for the 6GB version?

Yes, sir! That would be wonderful!

I tested version 1.1 on my R9 Nano 4GB (Win 7) with Adrenaline drivers and it does not work. No errors are reported, the command line simply goes to 'pause'. Are 15.12 drivers an absolute requirement?

And I wonder, would there be any additional performance increase from Vega Frontier Edition's 16GB RAM compared to Vega 64's 8GB? Maybe it would make sense to add support for it...

Hey optiminer, do you have any plans to create a 4GB nvidia version? Just curious, not here to badger about it. I'll just buy Zero instead if not  :)

I could release a 6GB version for nvidia. Would that help? The problem with a 4GB version is that it would be much slower. You can see this in the AMD version, the 4GB version runs about at half the speed.



Please could you release the 6GB version me and 5 other of my friends would love to mine it and we all have 1060 6gbs. it would be awesome!

this coin could definitely need help from Gtx 1060 6gb cards. since there are a ton of them. i am also waiting for the optiminer for 1060s so that ill mine them. ethereum difficulty is really dead serious.

Hello everybody, i have some problem when mine ZERO, hope you can give me some advice, many many thanks.
https://uphinhnhanh.com/images/2018/02/22/ggggge8680.png
I have a rig 6 x 580-8gb, ssd 128gb, page file set 68000-100000, win 10.
1. If i mine ETH, everything is ok, very stable. But when i mine ZER, the rig run only  1-2 days is off.
2. And the rig do not work with 6VGA, only 4-5VGA. You can see the picture, the VGA6 did not work. I restart the rig, maybe the VGA 2 and VGA 3 will not work. Next time, i restart, VGA 4 and VGA 5 do not work.
This is my situation.
Tks you very much!

Hi,

You are using 1060 6 Gb card If you are mining Zero Coin then you need atleast 8GB card so try to check it.
